Welcome snowbirds!

My name is Jackie Roberson and I am the club president for this upcoming year, 2018-2019. I was born and raised in the great state of Maine and currently reside in a small seacoast town of Thomaston, Maine, with my husband Terry. We have been coming to Destin for the past seven years, arriving here quite by accident when my husband heard this was a great fishing town. We have three adult children between us and one 5-year-old granddaughter who lives with her parents (her mother is our daughter) in Australia. Our son lives in Peru with his wife Sara and our other daughter lives and works near us in Maine.

The board and I are excited about this upcoming season and hope that you all enjoy your time here in the sun and on the great beaches. Please take time to go to our website, destinsnowbirds.org, and become familiar with all the activities we have to offer. As always, we can use your expertise and hope that you make a choice to volunteer and assist to make this year a huge success.

I look forward to seeing you all. We will be opening our Roost at the Destin Community Center Monday, Nov. 26, at 1 p.m., followed by registration until 3 p.m. Please come and join us, register and learn all about the fun events that have been planned.

Jackie Roberson is president of the Destin Snowbird Club.
