[ft-l] Opening Celebration for Florida Trail at Eglin AFB on November 2, 2002



--

Thanks Lee,

I will be mailing out a press release to the media after Eglin and Vernon
approves it (Rick requested I give it to them for approval).  Vernon is
getting together a list of media contacts and I have requested a similar
list from Eglin.  If you have media contacts, please forward them to me and
I will send them a press release also.

Once I get the approval from Eglin and Vernon, I will mail it out.

Attached is the proposed press release and the map.  Please let me know if
you recommend any changes.  Thanks for your help.

Kent
