ESU Central Florida Branch

A Message from the Branch President

To my fellow Club Members of ESU,

I am pleased and honored to be your next President of our wonderful organization, the English Speaking Union of Central Florida! Serving as Michael Kakos' Executive Vice President for a few years and attending National and Regional Meetings gave me the chance to become familiar with the administration of the Union. It also helped identify opportunities for the future, including continuing to focus on  E-SU's goal to increase our membership.

News And Events


Former British University Summer Scholars received invitations through the mail to attend our first Scholars' reunion, held at the An Tobar, Irish Pub in the Maitland Sheraton North on March 30th from 5:00-7:00. The theme of the evening was "Mingle" so all would enjoy a wine and cheese tasting social hour. Jan McClure, who designed the invitations, received 26 responses, and she designed name tags that gave the year and university that each scholar attended. The Manager at the An Tobar donated beautiful cheese/cracker and fruit platters while our branch bought wine/beer/well drinks for all

Central Florida Branch had a great turnout! Our 2016 Scholars had fun hearing others' adventures as well as tips on what to pack, great places to eat, and places that must be seen in the U.K. Everyone had a great time recalling experiences, their favorite instructors and classes and just catching up on what's going on today. The socializing was non-stop and so successful that many asked if there might be more opportunities for the scholars to come together for sharing. Ideas began to be discussed before this evening ended, and, Yes, the Scholar Committee wishes to make this an annual event. Thanks again go out to the Sheraton North's An Tobar for a memorable evening.
