About Our Club

In 1998, Peter Zahner and Rita Rüedi took the initiative to found the SWISS AMERICAN CLUB OF SW FLORIDA. On November 25, 1998, the inauguration was highly successful and very dignified in a celebration at the “Kensington Golf and Country Club”, Naples. Over 130 Swiss, from Marco Island to Englewood, decided spontaneously to join the newly founded Club. In 2001, it was our Club who established the first Swiss Club web page in the US.

Today, members and their guests meet once a month for informal meetings. Our seasonal members especially appreciate learning about the Club happenings while abroad.

It is not a surprise that among the members of our still young Club many friendships have developed over the years, which have resulted in personal contacts and private parties. The successful mixture of the Swiss foreigners abroad with the so-called “snowbirds” has led to many interesting exchanges of information, as well as, good dialogues among the newfound friendships.
