John Parker wanted to have one of our luncheons at Port Canaveral but unfortunately we never got around to doing it, until now. We only wish John was here to join us but Lori Parker will be there, as always, on his behalf.

Milliken’s Reef Seafood Grille has a nice view of the cruise ships at Port Canaveral and great food. It will be a little closer than the Swamp House for our west coast and south Florida retirees.

We are getting this invitation out early at the request of our snowbirds that rent a place here in Florida during the winter; so they can plan their trip and attendance.

We look forward to seeing you, please contact Bob Murphy to confirm your attendance by Feb.1st. 2018.
