New sign for Middleton's Fish Camp Park
Indian River County, Florida has renamed its Blue Cypress Lake Park to honor Joneal "Joe" Middleton in a ceremony held on March 16, which would have been his 80th birthday.

This photo came to us from our friend, Jim Kitterman, pictured here on the right, with his life-long buddy, Earl Senters, taken on the day of the renaming ceremony.

Thanks to everyone who came out for the event and thank you all for looking out for Jeanne as she continues to run the camp, even without her sweetheart by her side.

The sign reads "Middleton's Fish Camp Park, 7400 Blue Cypress Lake Rd, Indian River County. Dedicated in honor of Joneal "Joe" Middleton, March 16, 1935 - October 18, 2014.

We are so pleased the county has chosen to honor Joe in this way. So, we offer our thanks to Indian River County Parks and the County Commission as well.

We look forward to seeing all our friends real soon!
