- November 15, 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. – Ford Lawn Riverside
Each fall, we gather with Members to look at the year ahead and the year just completed. For the year completed, please check the center section of this newsletter for our annual financial report. It was a successful and a very busy year. Members are soon to see many, many changes and improvements in our Museum. There will be four new exhibits opening in the next few months, as well as the long awaited construction of the Edison River Pavilion in the Coconut Grove adjacent to the Edison Estate.
For the Member Celebration entertainment, we have a great live band, Flash Back, who are also Edison Ford Members. We decided to go back in time and learn some non-Edison or Ford Era dance steps with music of the “Swing Era and Shag or Beach Music.” Both the Ford and Edison families enjoyed dancing, but we decided to move it forward historically this year. The dress this year is definitely from the 50’s and 60’s (think J Crew Bermuda shorts and khaki skirts and Edison Ford T-shirts). There will be heavy hors d’oeurves and a beer and wine cash bar. Alyce Bochette of Dance Bochette will be on hand to teach the shag and swing steps.
Cost: Edison Ford Members FREE; Member Guests $20. RSVP to Darlene Hermey, Membership Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 239-334-7419.
Hope to see you at the Member Celebration for updates, food, live music, dancing and a time to be with friends!
