One of the organizers of the rally, J Robert, speaks in support of the Ted Smallwood Store during a rally advocating restoration of a public access road to the Smallwood Store that has been taken away by the Florida Georgia Grove company. "It's important to keep this store not just because of the past but also of the future," said Robert.
About a dozen people attended a rally on the courthouse steps this morning to support the historic Ted Smallwood Store in Chokoloskee. Supporters held signs asking Judge Hugh Hayes to 'Save SW Florida History for our Children.'
