Enjoy a Tidbits lunch while reliving this exciting time in Jacksonville sports history!

More than thirty years ago, Jacksonville’s NFL team existed only in the hopes and dreams of its citizens. Throughout the 1980s and into the 1990s, a changing cast of determined leaders pursued an NFL franchise. The story of that effort, and of the rebuilding of the old Gator Bowl Stadium to NFL standards, will be the topic on August 27, when Preston Haskell speaks at the Jacksonville Historical Society. This Lunch & Learn program covers the runup to the long-awaited day when our Jacksonville Jaguars began major-league play in the River City.

Lunch will be served at 11:30am at Old St. Andrews. Mr. Haskell’s presentation will begin at 12:00pm.

Parking is available behind Old St. Andrews and the Merrill House. Enter parking lot from Duval Street.
