Traditions

Estero Historical society

The Society has a number of annual and ongoing traditions we celebrate with area residents. These events form a sense of community and connect our history with today.

Annual Luncheon

Every year, usually in March, EHS hosts a grand Luncheon, and each year has a distinctive theme. Residents go to great lengths, wearing theme-matching hats and outfits. It’s a wonderful time and a large fund-raiser for the organization.
