As we embark on the upcoming watermelon season, I would like to update you all on the state of our membership.
We ended 2020 with 177 members. So far in 2021 we have 97 renewed members. If you haven’t done so yet, please renew your membership. We are all stronger together!
On December 11, 2020 Queen Bethany attended the Florida Seed Association Annual Seed Shoot in Nokomis, Florida, with the purpose of pushing membership to growers in attendance. She was able to sign up seven new grower members. Thanks Bethany!
I want to personally urge everyone to reach out to fellow industry members and encourage them to become members of our association. There are many growers, shippers and others who are not members that could benefit from our research, marketing, and fellowship.
I pray we all have a wonderful watermelon season and look forward to the year ahead!
Second Vice President
Florida Watermelon Association
