‘Lost and Found’ (4/28/2021)
There were a few items left behind at the Silver Wings Clubhouse at the recent Sun’n Fun event. If you left something there by mistake, contact us on a contact form and describe what the item is. We can return the item to you if you desire (and are willing to pay the postage). Please include a telephone number in your contact for submission to make the communication more efficient.
Sun’n Fun 2021 (4/21/2021)
Well after a year off due to the Covid-19 shutdown the Sun’n Fun event resumed this year. It was attended by a large number of Silver Wings Fraternity members. How good it was to see familiar faces at the SWF hospitality Clubhouse. The Florida Gulf Coast Chapter, who staff the Fraternity clubhouse, took care to follow the rules set out by Sun’n Fun to ensure everyone’s’ safety.
We signed up a fair number of new members as well as renewing members who missed the January renewal date. The lunch served daily by our FGCC volunteers for the benefit of our Fraternity members and their accompanied guests was very much appreciated and may have been a motivation for some of our new members.
We hope to see all of our members there again next year!
