FYI: I got word by email so just remind deaf Floridians.

There is a Deaf Day 2008 event at Sea World (Orlando) on August 16th, Saturday!

50% off regular individual price ($67.00) so it means $33.50 for each deaf patron and one guest!

Sales counter at the Sea World front gate... opens all day.

DSB Events - Deaf Day at Sea World

Not sure what time it starts and closes? But will try to ask then post it next time asap.

Hello Floridians,

Is there any event to attend in Fort Myers for the month of September ? I would like to meet you guys. My significant other would love to meet new deaf friends, so he can learn their culture and ASL.

Hopefully, some of you can provide some answers. Many thanks! :)

Oh my goodness, Maria. You're living in Florida now!!! I used to live in Clearwater, just about two hours north for 20 years! I'm now stuck here at other state but am trying to work on moving back somewhere in Florida state. I really do miss Florida and it's good for my health.

Anyway I looked up on google for your area for deaf. I found a website you might be interesting on check on those out. Try click on Community Events. Also it has all kinds of services going on there. Wish you a good luck.

Yeah thanks... I almost forgot to add up that there is a DPHH event on International Drive on Sept. 12, Friday night, a day before the ASL Expo event in Orlando, too.
Haha, you're welcome. Heard there's Deaf Coffee at Starbucks on us-17 (roosevelt blvd) in Jax on Oct 10th. Will try to be there.

Does St Augustine have Deaf Coffee?

I am aware of at least part of the answer to ASL Student's question re: the "big deaf community in Florida" : There are many retirees there. As for the rest, dunno...
It is in Lady Lake, Florida. Deaf / HH 60 residents live in Village. I went there, wow they have restruants, golf, salon, events, etc. etc.... Many eldery deaf people love their life in Village. Their homes are so beautiful but house insurance cost 3,000 to 4,000 a year. Yikes :shock:

Heck, I probably even talked with your wife last night :lol: I talked to a lot of peeps. If you're going to DPHH next week, lemme know. It'd be nice to meet you and your wife (again?).

MSSD?? Isn't that in DC? hehe
