(Instrumental music) The sun is shining. We’re going out paddling and I can’t think
of a more wonderful forecast or a more wonderful place to do it. Paddle Florida is organized as a non-profit
to raise awareness about water conservation, wildlife preservation restoration of springs
and waterways of Florida. Sumter County has opened its doors here at
Marsh Bend Outlet Park and it’s a wonderful staging area to get people onto the water
for this paddle from here to the Gulf of Mexico. I think it’s terrific to schedule the Paddle
Party in conjunction with what we were doing. As most of the paddlers and people setting
up tents went over there and checked it out. It was a nice addition to what we were doing.
