The Estonian Society of Central Florida (Kesk Florida Eesti Selts) held its annual business meeting for the 2015-16 year on Sunday, November 1, 2015, at 2:00 pm, at Pier 22, 1200 First Avenue West, Bradenton, Florida 34205; telephone: 941-748-8087. This has been one of our favorite locations and we were happy to return here again. Situated beautifully waterside, the restaurant has a delicious moderately priced luncheon menu.

Nearly 30 members, friends and guests participated in our business meeting. The agenda included approval of reports on last year’s activities and budget; approval of this coming year’s proposed activities and budget; and election of officers.
