Bird Key resident and Sarasota Mayor Susan Atwell will speak at the event, along with members of the Bird Key Improvement Association and the Sarasota County Historical Commission Bird Key Yacht Club Commodore Bob Hunter. Following the program, there will be a reception with light refreshments at Bird Key Yacht Club, at 301 Bird Key Drive.
