NEW YORK SNOWBIRDS 2017 Winter Plans at the Gulf
The New York Snowbirds are returning in force to the Gulf Coast for another winter of warmth and fun. Once again, they are pleased that the hurricanes were forgiving for this cherished area, and it’s business as usual for the next 3 months. Snowbird committees are already meeting to begin plans for the various fund raising activities for the communities that are championed by the wintering guests.
New York will start the season with its first luncheon on Thursday, January 12th at Ginny Lane, in Orange Beach, at the Wharf. (NOTE: This is a change from previously reported location, Cayman Grill). They will gather for registration and social time at 11 a.m. with lunch to begin 11:30 a.m. They will order from a special menu and be provided separate checks. $1 per person will be collected at registration to cover luncheon expenses, amenities, and future donations back to the community. 50-50 raffle will also be used to generate $$$ for community donations. A speaker will be scheduled to talk on an appropriate topic. For reservations, please call Linelle at 215-923-0581, or Nancy at 251-923-0449, or email firstname.lastname@example.org., 3 days before the scheduled luncheon. Future luncheons will be at Ginny Lane on January 26th, February 9th and 23rd, and March 9th.
A casino bus trip to Biloxi and the Scarlett Pearl is planned for January 18th, with information sent to its members by email.
They will participate in the various winter snowbird fund raising functions: Brat Fest, Trivia Night, Pancake Breakfast, Baldwin County Heritage Museum Golf, and the Low Country Boil.
Other activities may include Ladies Luncheon, Valentine Brunch, Dinner Dances, Dolphin Cruise, Fishing Trip, a second Casino Trip, etc.. Anyone interested in helping with these or other NY Snowbirds social and volunteer activities, please email email@example.com .
More details and signup opportunities will be provided at their first luncheon in January.
New York State Snowbirds are an informal bunch who have been gathering for social times since 2000. The New York State Snowbirds have formed an informal group of past and present “Empire State” residents who live year round or winter in South Baldwin County, the Perdido Key, or the greater Pensacola area. The participants are proud to promote their roots, representing all parts of the state: The Big Apple, Long Island, Hudson Valley, Catskills, Capital District, Adirondacks, St. Lawrence Region, Southern Tier, Finger Lakes, Genesee Valley, Niagara Region, etc. Their common thread is the love of a warm climate, the supportive, friendly environment, and the lasting relationships found here in the Florida-Alabama Gulf Coast, and the lack of interest in the winter weather of their northern home state.
