With a name like Lake, the county had an inside track for this year’s Florida Association of Counties calendar. The theme is bodies of water, and a photo depicting a paddle trip on Lake Norris is featured as November 2018 and was taken by Lake County staff member Bryan Baquiran.
More than 600 photos were submitted from Florida’s 67 counties, with only 15 selected. The calendar is distributed to county commissioners and senior county staff around the state.
“This year’s theme recognizes that our state’s natural beauty is the reason we have chosen to make Florida our home and the reason so many choose to visit Florida every year,” FAC President Christopher G. Constance says in the release. “The calendar is a way to showcase the pride Floridians have for where they live and highlight the beauty every county offers.”
