View the Event Photo Gallery.
The next to last Florida event in March took place in Naples on March 6. The largest group of the Sunshine Swing gathered during the late-afternoon hours at Moorings Beach Park Chickee for beverages, appetizers, pizza and dessert. In addition, those in attendance were engaged in conversation and story-telling before getting the opportunity to view a spectacular and colorful sunset over the Gulf of Mexico. The private park is located just off the beach that leads down to the enticing gulf waters.
A total of 26 alumni, family and friends gathered for the event which concluded at dusk. The decades of the 1930s, 1950s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s were represented in southwestern Florida, including Charles Goodale, a member of the Class of 1939. Overall, there were 11 Juniatians from the decade of the 50s. Keith Birmingham ’56 and his wife Peg and Don Pheasant ’56 and his wife Marge served as the organizers, hosts and sponsors for the outing, while others in attendance brought a dish to pass.
Director of Planned Giving Kim Kitchen and Director of Alumni Relations Bub Parker ’91 were on hand to mingle with the group and answer questions on the latest College Hill happenings, while Parker gave the official greeting from the College and was presented with a coconut shaped like a football to bring good luck to the gridiron program at JC.
