Sons of the Revolution
in the
State of Michigan

Spending the winter in sunny Florida? Join us for a central Florida Great Lake Winter Encampment Luncheon during December, January, February, and March. Originally started by the Great Lakes SR Societies in 2008 they were extended to all Great Lakes Lineage Society members for more camaraderie so we can all learn more of the other active lineage societies in our Great Lakes Region. Maybe you can prospect for a new member for your society. We know you will have a great time meeting new people and will be having a very nice lunch at one of the finest buffets in central Florida. You longer have to use "it's a sunny day" as a reason to go out to lunch. Educate these other society members about why they might consider your society and educate them as to what your chapter or society is doing for activities, how they recruit new members, where you are holding meeting, share some of your lineage and research tips. A good time has been had by everyone. We meet rain or shine. All lineage society members from the Great Lake States of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan & Wisconsin (friends, guests and prospective members) are invited. We gather at the Band Stand on East Main Street in downtown Avon Park by 10:30 to greet and met other lineage society members from the Great Lake States of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin and then at 11:00 we march (across the street) to the Hotel Jacaranda.   Some of the ladies have been known to sit in the Hotel Jacaranda's waiting room until we arrive from the band stamp. If it's cold we've been known to gather in the lobby if it cold in the band stand.   Some of our ancestors spent a winter encampment at Valley Forge so as we enjoy the freedoms they fought for to create this great country with live in with some fellowship at our winter encampments across Florida.   All lineage society members in the Great Lakes State of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin are invited.  Dress is always Florida Casual.  Don't belong to a lineage Society but your are into Genealogy, come and have luncheon and learn what lineage societies are all about.

Questions?   Expect me there!
