Saturday, February 10, 2018, was a perfect winter day, sunny and 86°, for all those attending the 2018 Salem Ohio Day SWFL in Fort Myers, Florida. This was the 12th year for the annual event which started when a small group of eight 1958 Salem High School graduates met at the Elks Club in Bonita Springs, FL. Attendance has grown over the years and includes not just Salem High School alumni and residents, but also those from other areas who have an interest or connection to Salem, Ohio. Everyone is welcome!
We gathered at the Shell Factory and Nature Park's banquet room in North Fort Myers, Florida, where we enjoyed a very nice buffet luncheon as well as an afternoon of fun and shared memories. This year there were twenty-seven SHS and other area high school classes represented that ranged from 1943 to 2005. Throughout the afternoon there were many hellos and lots of hugs and laughter. A highlight of the afternoon was wonderful music performed by Charles Alexander, SHS 1966.
We invite everyone to join us next year, Saturday, February 16, 2019, to gather and celebrate Salem Ohio Day SWFL!
