Can You Say "Sesquiquadricentinial"?

Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Florida Network Realty BK 3030920

I had to practice it myself, too.

This upcoming May 1st is the sesquiquadricentinial celebration of the 450 year anniversay of Captain John Ribault's landing on the Saint Johns River.

There are a host of activities scheduled, and some will include French dignitaries (as that is Ribault's heritage), and we have apparently dubbed the week of 4/26-5/6/12 as "French Week".

For more information and the event website, you can read the blog in the TU here.
