St. Simons Island

Southern Stars Section Members from Florida & Georgia dined beachside in the Golden Isles after a dozen or so members traveled up from Jacksonville, Florida and another dozen members met us at the King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort in St. Simons Island, Georgia on April 25th, 2021.


We had several great Mercedes-Benz cars join us for the day! There were four SL’s, an S550, a CLS550, a C300, a stunning 2001 CLK320 Cabriolet and a 2014 E350 coupe in Lunar Blue, as well as a 2018 SLC300 finished in Designo Cardinal Red Metallic, that caught everyone attention! It’s all about sharing our passion, knowledge, and appreciation of these well-engineered Mercedes!


Thank you to Gary & Jackie Keener, who were the lead car for the convoy from Florida, and to Rob Schlessinger, our trailing car to make sure everyone got there safe. Thank you to Board Member Jeff Rotatori, and his wife Ann, for helping us with reservations and leading the group of members to arrive on site before the convoy arrived!


Our next two Cars & Coffee events at Mercedes-Benz Orange Park will be on May 8 and June 12 from 8 AM to 10:30 AM. In July we will host Cars & Coffee at a different location, before returning to Mercedes-Benz of Orange Park in August!


Even-numbered months, beginning in June, through and including December, on the second Saturday of every month we’ll host Cars & Coffee at Mercedes-Benz Orange Park. The “O” shape of the Mercedes logo and “O” of Orange Park are nice round, even numbers, which might help us remember to go there on even-numbered months! “It would be "odd" not to have it at Mercedes-Benz of Orange Park, after all!”
