|Wisconsin Sno-Birds begin season with donuts and coffee|
Jaunry 24, 2014 - Orange Beach, AL (OBA) - The WI Sno-bird Club met at the Orange Beach Community Center on Jan. 22, with visiting over donuts and coffee. The Gulf Shores JROTC presented the colors to open our meeting. Commander Candless thanked us for coming to the Alabama coast and buying the Coupon Books sold by the cadets to raise money for their activities.
We had 48 new members this morning with chances to sign up for golfing, day trips, breakfast, picnic and potluck events. Members can exchange books and puzzles and the club accepts the following: labels from Campbell soups and Nestle water bottles, Boxtops for Education, pop top tabs, empty printer ink cartridges and motel toiletries.

Remember the Senior Potluck every Thursday at the Gulf Shores Activity Center with meal starting at 12:30 pm and the Friday morning Sheepshead cards at the Harry Roberts Community House from 9 .a.m. to noon.
Our speaker, Blake Phelps, Gulf Shores Marketing & Communications Coordinator, welcomed us to the area and talked about happenings in GulfShores. He thanked us for making 2013 the third year of increased revenue for the Coast!
