SAF Annual Members Meeting with Jeff LaHurd
"Stories from the North Trail"

*Online registration is closed. Feel free to join us and register at the event.

Members are invited to attend SAF's annual meeting as the board of directors review 2018 and present programs, plans and events for 2019 and beyond. This is a great opportunity to get involved, ask questions, share ideas and meet and greet fellow members.

Enjoy a presentation "Stories from the North Trail" by Local author and historian Jeff LaHurd, who has lived in Sarasota since 1950, and has written 17 books about the history of the community plus numerous articles which have appeared in The Sarasota Herald-Tribune, Style Magazine, SARASOTA Magazine, SRQ, and The Downtowner.

A video he wrote in 1992, Sarasota: "Landmarks of the Past" won the award for Outstanding Contribution to Preservation in the field of Communication from the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation and was shown on the History Channel.

The Downtown Kiwanis Club honored him for Outstanding Service, 1991-1992 and his book, "Sarasota Sentimental Journey" earned the club a Wooden Gavel by the Sarasota Herald-Tribune in the Golden Gavel competition.

He was given the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation Award again in 2014 for Lifetime Achievement in History and Preservation. In 2015 the Historical Society of Sarasota County honored him with their first annual Hero of History award. In 2016, The Caledonian Club of Florida presented him their award for Excellence for the Preservation of the History of Sarasota and Sarasota County. He was awarded the History & Preservation Coalition of Sarasota County award for Research in 2018.

Jeff is a former board member of the Sarasota Alliance for Historic Preservation, the Sarasota Historical Society, the Sarasota Community Blood Bank, and the Downtown Kiwanis Club. He is currently on the Board of the Sarasota Historical Society.
