Join us for the fun & fellowship during our Annual Gathering.  The Florida Park Service Ranger 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. 

Due to precautions for COVID-19, advance registration is required and those attending are asked to wear masks and social distance.

Those planning to attend just during the day are asked to register. 

Please contact Sandy Cook, FPSRA Director of Events if you have any questions about the Annual Gathering.
