FORT MYERS, FL - Florida Gulf Coast University invites individuals with developmental disabilities and their families to the free forum "A Treasure Trove of Services" designed to help people locate and gain access to local services, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Saturday, May 15 in the Student Union Ballroom.
