2017 Keep Florida Beautiful Annual Conference
“This was the most-well planned and executed conference in our history,” said KFB executive director Mary Jean Yon. Attendees received meaningful educational training and also had an opportunity to enjoy local dining and shopping in downtown Stuart and other parts of Martin County and also to explore area beaches and cultural offerings such as the Florida Oceanographic Center and the Elliott Museum. “Keep Martin Beautiful and its board and staff certainly took our annual conference to a new level and we appreciate the time they invested in making the experience a good one for all of our affiliates.”
