Snowbird season officially opens

"This will be our 40th year," club president George Olsen told The Log. "It's grown over the years from just a few people to a couple hundred people, to multiple hundreds to a couple thousand."

As always, the snowbirds have a load of events scheduled, including parties, concerts and cruises. For snowbirds looking for something to do outside of the scheduled events, the group provides volunteer directors for a range of activities.

The Destin Snowbird Club is open to anyone who wishes to join in on the fun.

"If there is some activity that we don't have, we will try to see if we can get someone to volunteer to be the chairperson of that activity. And we'll start it if we have enough people that are interested. We develop whatever we need and continue the ones that are very successful," Olsen said.
