Welcome to our Florida Meetup Wrapup!
It was late February and the weather was perfect when we touched down in Sarasota and checked into our Headquarters Hotel. We had come to visit with our Florida relatives and celebrate Buffalo Bill's Birthday at Cody Villa. Now we invite you to join us as we re-live our 2020 Florida Meetup with slideshows of the exciting events we enjoyed!
