FL - Friends of A1A video receives national recognition

The Friends of A1A Scenic & Historic Coastal Byway were pleased to learn their video project “Capturing the A1A Byway Story,” part of the Roadmap to History video series in development, was selected for Honorable Mention by the National Scenic Byway Foundation on April 23.

Funded in part by a Visit Florida grant, “Capturing the A1A Byway Story” introduces audiences around the world to the A1A Scenic & Historic Coastal Byway, one of 150 National Scenic Byways in America. With visually stunning images, the video captures a snapshot of the stories behind the creation of the advocacy group representing Flagler and St. Johns counties as the Friends of A1A Scenic & Historic Coastal Byway.

“We were proud to receive the news that our project had been selected for Honorable Mention by the National Scenic Byway Foundation,” said Friends of A1A President Marge Rooyakkers. “The team that worked on this project put in a tremendous amount of effort to make this happen, and our supporting partners from the A1A Byway communities were gracious in sharing information and taking part in this project to showcase all that the northeast Florida region has to offer. We appreciate being recognized by our peers and are grateful to Visit Florida for supporting this project as well.”

In a release from the National Scenic Byway Foundation, Executive Director Sharon Strouse noted the reasons behind the selection.
