For the 11th year, the Mexico Beach visitors marked the end of winter with the annual snowbird luncheon held at the El Governor Motel.


For the 11th year, the Mexico Beach visitors marked the end of winter with the annual snowbird luncheon held at the El Governor Motel.



The weather, it seemed, had a sense of humor.



Despite cooler temperatures, visitors enjoyed a free barbecue lunch from Sharon’s Café, entertainment from Randy and Junior Stark and received door prizes that featured loads of beach gear.



Dressed in shorts and sandals, guests were bound and determined to relax around the pool one last time before heading home.



“It was such a great way to send the visitors back up north with a heartfelt thank you,” said Community Development Council executive director Kimberly Shoaf.



Fortunately, the weather held off and Shoaf and her team of volunteers were able to feed more than 325 winter residents.
