Happy New Year Everyone!


Just a quick note to update you on some activities....


We started 2009 by officially forming the Florida 25 x '25 State
Alliance.  See the attached announcement for details.  If you have not
previously done so, I invite you to check out the 25 x'25 Initiative at and add your name to the long list of partners.


As a reminder, our 2009 Farm to Fuel Summit will be held July 29-31 at
the Rosen Shingle Creek, site of last year's successful event.  We are
now accepting sponsorships and presentation abstracts.  If you would
like to be a part of this year's event, visit for details.  Summit
registration and hotel reservations are now being accepted as well.
