WHY ALABAMA?

“Like most Snow Birds someone has been someplace and mentioned how nice the area is. So as Snow Birds we migrate there to the Pleasure Island Coast of Alabama as one of the places to come. The reasons why we come here: Dreams of retiring in warm weather. Places where friends are. It is a retirement minded community. The larger cities of Mobile and Pensacola are nearby. The beaches for some are the big draw. The people are friendly and Lastly- NO SNOW!!!
Kenn Krouse, Current Wisconsin Sno-Bird President

CLUB HISTORY

Two separate groups with different interest from Wisconsin started meeting at the Dairy Queen in Gulf Shores.

One club was formed from that meeting. They continued to meet at the Dairy Queen until the group increased in size to about thirty members. Several meeting places were used until settling at the Legion Club in Gulf Shores. This was about 1994. The club continued to grow to over two hundred members. At this time the Legion also became too small. In 1999 we started meeting at Wolf Bay Lodge. By the end of the 1999/2000 year we had 356 registered members. Since 2002, our meetings have been held at the Orange Beach Community Center.

WISCONSIN VOLUNTEERS

Our members are active in many area groups and volunteer their time doing after school tutoring, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach Libraries, Hospice of Foley; Gulf Shores Zoo, Habitat for Humanity and many others.
