Society History

July 7, 2007

St. George's Society of Palm Beach is formed by Susan Oyer, Harvey E Oyer, Jr,  Marian Morgan, and the Bales (Bob & Gloria).  The first meeting is at Rosalita's.

2007

Until a permanent meeting place wa chosen, meetings were held at The Boca Muse, including our first formal meeting with PBC Genealogist Marjorie Nelson.  All those that joined in 2007 are Founding members.


We create a logo that represents Palm Beach, St. George, and England (see left).

2008

Meetings are moved to The Chesterfield Hotel in Palm Beach--thanks Marian for the suggestion--our meeting location ever since.  This has been a great partnership.

2008-2012

We try a variety of fundraisers over the years.  Our first raffle items were donated by Cartier, Palm Beach.  Royal Wedding programs (William & Catherine) for silent auction were the most successful auction items ever.

2013-2014

Some of our most prominent guest speakers spoke during these years:  author/former assistant to the Duchess of Windsor Rene Silvin, Jim "Mr. Palm Beach" Ponce, wine expert/Colonel Bobby Spencer (retired), and author Laurence Leamer.

2015

The Society gets a Twitter feed, joins Meetup.com, and gets member number 100.

2016

Our first fashion show held in March at The Chesterfield Hotel and co-sponsored by The Circumnavigator's Club of Palm Beach to benefit FAU's British History department.  The event was chaired by Lady Susan Willis-Reickert and Erick Reickert.  Proceeds from this event were used to fund a British History research endowment chair in our name at FAU!!

2017

The St. George's Society of Palm Beach celebrates its 10th birthday on 7-7-2017.  Our actual luncheon celebration was held on July 29th at The Chesterfield Hotel.  Argentinian artist Paula Weiszkopf donated one of her paintings to us during the luncheon to be auctioned at a later date as a fundraiser.  Elected and local officials from Boynton Beach joined us:  City Manager Lori Laverriere, then Vice Mayor Justin Katz (now Commissioner, and Commissioner Joseph Casello (now State Representative dist 90).


We create a new logo for our next decade (see left).

2018

We had our largest event ever:  our "Dining Royally" event, chaired by Lady Susan Willis-Reickert, which brought in former royal chef Darren McGrady for our March dinner at The Colony Hotel.  Over 160 guests were delighted by tales and photos of Chef McGrady's 15+years cooking for HM Queen Elizabeth II, Diana, Princess of Wales, and the rest of the royal family.  Chef also oversaw the meal:  favorites from each member of the royal family were on the menu.
