    Wednesday, September 28, 2022.  As Hurricane Ian passes through Florida, Broward County schools are closed today and tomorrow, take special precautions. Be alert, stay calm, be safe and look after each other.

    Many thanks indeed to our Port Everglades Association Members who responded to our call for help.  Our members delivered with a remarkable response for our special Hurricane Relief Effort. CEMEX drivers braved bad weather to make an enormous truckload delivery of water. FIT made three giant deliveries of supplies and so many Member Companies dropped off much-needed materials to help people. Port Everglades Association Members are always the first to step up and help. We are so proud of this Herculean response. Very special recognition to Kris Hopkins, Seafarers International Union, for heading up the operation and to Crowley for providing the now full container!
