Dear Fellow Leadership Alumni, Board Members, and Class Members,

Happy New Year! December was a very rewarding month for Leadership Pinellas.

Big thanks are in order to the Dunedin Fine Arts Center for hosting our Holiday Happening. At our Happening, LP members donated more than $1,000 in gift cards for Camp Banyan Odyssey making 23 kid campers some of the happiest children around.

In turn, Camp Banyan hosted a Holiday Party in appreciation of Leadership. Santa even made a special appearance, and yes, we all know how busy he can be at that time of the year. To learn more about Camp Banyan, check out

LP Class of 2018 had their Environmental and Tourism Day. Thank you to a wonderful committee for a great day. We started at the fabulous Sand Pearl on Clearwater Beach and ended at Empower Adventures with some fun stops during the day.

On Jan. 22, the class of 2018 holds their first class project event – Bingo at Hamburger Mary’s benefiting The Beth Dillinger Foundation. Call to reserve your table now – 727.400.6996!

On Jan. 27, join us for the first social of 2018 – a hike in Brooker Creek Preserve.

We hope you had a great Holiday Season and hope to see you soon!

Thank You,

Georgie S. Menke ’09
