Our logo for year 10 on!
July 2007 - St. George's Society of Palm Beach is
formed by Susan Oyer, Harvey Oyer Jr., & the Bales. The first meeting is at Rosalita's.
2007 - until a permanent meeting place was chosen, meetings were held at Boca Muse, including our first formal meeting with PBC Geneaologist Marjorie Nelson. All those that joined in 2007 are founding members.
2008 - meetings are moved to The Chesterfield Hotel in Palm Beach-- thanks Marian for the suggestion--our meeting location ever since.
2008-2012--we try a variety of fundraisers over the years. Our first raffle items were donated by Cartier, Palm Beach. Royal Wedding
programs for silent auction were the most successful auction items ever.
2013-2014--some of our most prominent guest speakers spoke during these years: Rene Silvin, Jim Ponce, Col. Bobby Spencer, Ret., and Laurence Leamer.
2015 --the Society gets a Twitter feed, joins Meetup.com, and gets member number 100
2016--our first fashion show held in March at The Chesterfield Hotel and co-sponsored by The Circumnavigator's Club of Palm Beach to benefit FAU's British History research grant fund
