The Iowa Snowbird Club met Wednesday January 12 at LuLu’s Homeport for breakfast with over 200 present.
President Marvin Hastings introduced Jan Taylor and Linda Spangrud who are chairing a gala 25th Anniversary event promoting literacy. They told of the millions who are dysfunctional due to impaired ability to read and asked for volunteers to help.
Herb Malone, CEO of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach Tourism spoke to us about their
summer nightmare due to the oil spill, but feels the worst is past. He said what we can do to help is to continue coming here and to spread the word to others that the deep cleaning is done and they are open for business. They operate two Welcome Centers, a web-site and have many events coming up.
