Florida Convention 7-9 June 2013

    The Military Officers Association of Sarasota hosted the Florida Council of Chapter Convention 2013 from 7-9 June at the Hyatt Regency, Sarasota.
    We invited all to come and enjoy our hospitality, cultural treasures, and fantastic dining.


      We have an amazing treasure trove of attractions. The Ringling Museum, with the Circus Museum’s Tibbals Learning Center having the world's largest miniature circus. The model is a replica of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus from 1919 – 1938. Plus, the Art collection of circus magnate, John Ringling.  In addition to the Ringling, we have the beautiful Selby Botanical Gardens with a myriad of orchids, bromeliads and other beautiful plants.  Take a Bay tour on the Sarasota Bay explorer and learn/see various kinds of plant and animal life.

     Our hospitality committee will be ready to advise you on many of the other exciting places of interest, including an array of suggestions for restaurants, some offering special promotions for our attendees.
