BACKGROUND: We are based in Clay County (Village of Green Cove Springs) Florida. We showcase Clay County, the lower St. Johns River basin, Florida, and American Heritage. Heritage Guides evolved out of Art Yeaman, Diversified (AYD) a business venture of Art Yeaman providing Living History, and Heritage Awareness programs while supporting the development of the Eco-Heritage tourism market. AYD was an active member (2003-2009) of the former Green Cove Springs Merchants Association (GCSMA) and has been involved with the Parade of Flags since 1999, and the Parade of Trees since it was created in 2004.
Note: The GCSMA met with internal strife during 2009. Follow these links to learn about the history of:
During 2010 Art Yeaman co-founded the Greater Green Cove Civic Association (GGCCA) to continued the legacy of the Parade of Flags and the Parade of Trees. Those two flagship events recognize and remember others; specifically military service personnel, their families, and veterans. The GGCCA was created to:
During 2011 Heritage Guides (HG) partnered with GGCCA for the development of Heritage Flags on Parade, an idea designed to be modeled into an Adot-A-Flag Program and specific projects to help promote the Military Museum of North Florida. The concept expanded the perspective of community civic education. During 2013 the two organization entered a collaboration period followed by a plan to merge.
The GGCCA and HG merge was approved; HG became the lead agent January 2014. We are not a “meeting group,” we forego a routine of periodic meetings. We host planning sessions, placing our focus on meaningful civic projects.
