KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. - A French organization, Association de Paralyses de France (APF), took a group of French travelers on a tour of Florida. During their tour, they visited Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park. The General Manager of the APF, Laurent Roffe, sent this letter to Park Management Lu Dodson and Art Yerian after their stay thanking them for a wonderful visit:

"Dear Art and Lu,

On behalf of the French organization APF (Association des Paralyses de France) and our company Tapooz Travel, I would like to express our appreciation and gratitude for a wonderful visit of the Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park this past July.

As you may remember, we organized this visit as part of a tour of Florida with a group of French travelers, many of them in wheelchairs. We were all delighted to see all the efforts made to make the Park accessible to people with mobility limitations. We all enjoyed walking along the beautiful path, admiring the lighthouse and visiting the keeper's cottage. Everybody commented on the quality and the display of the historical information. It really gave us a sense of the history and development of early Florida.

A special note of appreciation goes to the Ranger that led the tour. He was absolutely fantastic. Extremely knowledgeable, patient, professional and with a relaxed manner that put everyone at ease and feel welcome. Thank you.

Kind regards,

Laurent Roffe, General Manager

Tapooz Travel LLC"
