Central Florida Ventriloquist Association is a group of professional and amateur ventriloquists who meet to educate and learn about the art of ventriloquism.
Started on March 23rd of 1997 by founding members Aunita Padgett, Jacki Manna, Kay Watts and Jim “Jungle Jimmy” Venezio who served as CFVA’s first President. Meetings were first held in Casselberry but later they moved to “The Magic Shop” which was owned by one of the members, Mike Palma. When the shop was closed the meetings went traveling and are held in various homes of members in the Central Florida area. The membership ebbs and flows and at one time included a group of clowns from the Villages.
So that means that next March is the tenth anniversary!!! WOO HOO!
