The luncheon meeting speaker this month at the Town Club (Wed. March 19) will be Richard Davis, Professor Emeritus from the University of South Florida and Visiting Research Associate at Harte Research Institute. His topic will be “Sea-Level Change in the Gulf of Mexico.” He has written a book on the topic and will have a book signing before the luncheon.

Following is a list of local CCGS events that you should put on your calendar:

The cost of the school will be $200 for non-members, $150 for members, and $100 for students. This is a large discount from the standard rate.
