ALACHUA ‒ The Alachua Business League (ABL) held their quarterly member meeting on Monday, July 25 at the Lion’s Club building in Alachua. The ABL was honored to have John Spence, a world-renowned business speaker who calls Alachua home, give an interesting presentation on his “Formula for Business Excellence.” Members also enjoyed a “summer picnic” at the themed meeting.

Members were updated on other activities of the Alachua Business League, including plans to increase involvement in city-wide activities like Scarecrow Row and the Holiday Parade, as well as plans for ABL’s 35th Alachua Main Street Harvest festival to be held on Sunday, Nov. 13. Vendors can now register for the festival by going to www.alachuabusiness.com. A great turnout of vendors is expected for this event.

Information was also presented on the ABL’s scholarships, which are given to Santa Fe High School graduates who are going to attend Santa Fe College. In the 2021-2022 school year, scholarships were awarded to five students. Students can get more information on the scholarship application for the 2022-2023 school year from their school counselor.
