Come join us for the fun & fellowship during our Annual Gathering. The Florida Park Service Alumni Association will gather at Topsail Hill Preserve State Park to explore the park, spin some yarns, raise some money for the organization through the Arnold Kuenzler and Family Annual Auction, cover some necessary business and have a good time. You don’t have to be a member to attend but once you see what good deeds the organization performs you will want to join.
Don’t forget to bring your items and your money for the auction. Auction items should be new, handmade or collectible items. This is a major fundraiser for the Ranger Association’s James A. Cook Humanitarian Relief Fund which directly benefits current and retired FPS staff.
For questions, comments or suggestions for the Annual Gathering please email Sandy Cook, FPSRA Director of Events.
Campsites- A number of campsites and cabins are blocked for the FPSRA Annual Gathering. Some of the units have been blocked for early arrival so come early to enjoy the park. The cabins vary in size from 1BR/1BA to 2BR/2BA. Standard rates apply, since this is not a work day.
Please call or email Faith Whalen at 850-408-1190 (Tuesday-Saturday) by March 28 to reserve your accommodations. After March 28th the cabins/campsites will be made available to the public. Please include FPS Ranger Association in the subject line and include the type size of your camping rig when making your reservation.
