Michigan Snowbird Club
The Michigan Snowbird Club is 1200+ strong and growing (except there is no building that can hold over 700 people in the area – We are a social club that has one heck of a good time besides the charity work we do for the area. Every second meeting of the month we have a food drive and every member brings nonperishables to the meeting – we have
filled many pick-ups with food.
Every February we have a blood drive and last year our club proudly donated over 120 pints of blood. We would like to think that is a record for visitors in an area. There were other blood drives (Hosted by various groups) and they averaged about 30 pints.
The Michigan Club along with all the other snowbird clubs have adopted the Fire Departments in our area and we had a brat fest (bratworst sandwiches) we sold over 3,500 sandwiches in about a 5 hour period and over the past three years have donated 7,000 to the fire departments. Many of our snowbirds do volunteer work and Michigan Club has our
wonderful clowns that go to various hospitals and entertain the children on a regular basis. We help at the local zoo, schools, hospitals, churches and organize dances, etc.
Most of all WE HAVE A KAZOO BAND! And we are twenty strong and every meeting we parade around the hall with our theme song “when the saints go marching in” I’m not saying we are great but if you have ever tried to play a kazoo, march, wave and smile at the same time you have to know how much laughter there is – we have a go cart race and the competition is fierce – at the end of the year we have a mullet toss at the famous Flora-Bama in March of every year - so that’s a small portion of what we do and are.
