FEBRUARY 6, 2016: 

On Saturday, February 6th, 2016, the 10th annual SALEM OHIO DAY SWFL was held at Capt’n Fishbones Seafood Grill in Fort Myers, Florida.

The event was hosted by committee members Tim and Sue (Smucker) Dean, Joe and Judy (Durham) Kozar, Dan and Nancy (McClanahan) Weber, Frank Barrett, and Ray and Helen (Brown) Esterly.

This year there were 135 “Salemites” in attendance. The majority of those were SHS graduates, but there were also a significant number who have another connection to the Salem Ohio area.

There were 30 SHS classes represented from 1943 through 1981. Robert Citino once again proudly claimed the title of the oldest SHS graduate.

Salem Ohio Day SWFL was a good time for all to meet and greet old friends as well as to make new ones. It was also time to remember and reminisce about our memories of good ol’ Salem Ohio.

In addition to the fellowship, everyone enjoyed a buffet luncheon. A highlight of the afternoon was SHS 1966 graduate, Chuck Alexander who sang and provided outstanding music along with some thoughtful words of wisdom.

The date for the 2017 Salem Ohio Day SWFL is Saturday, February 11, 2017.
