2022 Installation of Officers at the Pampered Chef
Yvonne Marlett- Garcia, our ‘Sunshine Chair,’ served as mistress of ceremonies and presented each officer with a gift of appreciation for their time and dedication to lead our chapter into the future. As you can tell by the photos, she had us all in stiches with her great sense of humor. All present officers volunteered to serve another 3 years and Renate Van Kempema is joining us as Recording Secretary. We are committed to keep the Miami Chapter vibrant into the future and honor our Pan Am legacy.
Thank you to all members who contributed some very nice prizes for our charity drawing to support the JJCCF- Jessica June Children’s Cancer Foundation and Mercy Mobile Clinic!
Since we were a small group, everyone won prizes and went home smiling! All of us were happy to be together again in person and celebrated the occasion with a champagne toast!
Orchestra Miami's "Airborne: Discover Miami Through Music"
Seven uniformed members of the Miami and Ft. Lauderdale chapters were present to support the event. Thank you to our volunteers: Renate Van Kempema, Harry Frahm, Diana Wiggins, Soraya Moghany, Melanie Camp and Gail Jennings. The vintage Pan Am uniforms have not lost their luster and were very popular with all the patrons attending the concert.

Thank you to all the members and friends who donated prizes, Pan Am Brands for the beautiful retro bags, and the AWARE Store.
All of Santa’s Miami elves worked together to make it a memorable occasion for all! A special thank you to Sybille Holder (our dedicated Treasurer), VP Harry Frahm (in charge of visual entertainment) and Heike Greenwood (for selling all those drawing tickets).
