April Special Guest Carl Fismer
Carl Fismer, affectionately dubbed "Fizz", is a treasure hunter
that has dived on some of the world's most famous shipwrecks.
He is often described as a real life underwater Indiana Jones.
Carl is an active treasure hunter who travels the world looking
for treasure and artifacts. He has worked with Mel Fisher on
the world-famous treasure ship, the Atocha.
Mr. Fismer is often called in as an expert on shipwrecks and
treasures of the Spanish Main. He has weathered hurricanes,
starred in his own television series "Treasure Divers”, looked
for lost treasure, and has found millions of dollars worth of
sunken treasure.
Carl delights his audience with stories of shipwrecks, lost
treasure, the Spanish Main, and treasure hunting. We are looking forward to being intrigued and inspired by his unique story.

Helpful Resources
Recently I found a copy of Palm Beach County’s Guide to Services 2017
at my library. It was in the children’s section and free for the taking.
In the back of the magazine type document is a complete listing of all
the parks and beaches for Palm Beach County. Broken down into
segments for the North, Central, South and Western parts of Palm
Beach County. Each park is broken down into the amenities within
that park.
I called Public Affairs at 561-355-2754 to inquire for additional copies,
unfortunately they are awaiting a new shipment, no copies are available. The young lady who took my call indicated that she would send
copies of the park guide to me at my local library and copies of the
entire guide upon her receipt of the new shipment.

counties for possible copies of their guides. I have received ten copies of
the Martin County guide so far (which I will bring for distribution at our April
meeting). St Lucie county will also be sending me copies. As for Broward
no copies are available from them directly but you can go online at
Broward.org and download and print the Broward County Park Finder Map.

AHOY MATES! For those who do not know me, my name is
Jeff Priest, My wife Ellen and I have attended the cookouts
since 2010. At the last cookout, we decided to take over as
hosts of this great event. Plans at this time are a seafood
fest for food. And all proceeds from this event will be donated to the Michael Abt, Jr Have a Heart Foundation.
This year, I will be cooking onsite. We'll be having a variety
of seafood and whatever else I can catch or kill between
now and then. Side dishes or desserts are always welcome
if you can bring one. Please bring lawn chairs if you can, and
your own adult beverages. I will supply water and sodas. As
always pre cookout donations are helpful. I look forward to
seeing everyone again.

Donations can be sent PayPal jeffpriest@centurylink.net
