Welcome Home Dinner 

Every Friday for over thirty years we’ve welcomed you and your family ‘home’ to the Florida Chapter’s casual gathering place - our opening event.  While we had to skip last year - get ready for an even bigger WELCOME in August!  This year, to adhere to safety protocols based on CDC guidelines, you will need to sign up for a reserved table for your party.  This table is yours all evening!  Households will sit together, as the size of the parties dictates how many households will sit at one table.  Click here to reserve through the registration page.
