Fort Myers, Florida, will once again be the Florida satellite Feast site for 2022. It is intended first to be for the Florida brethren who cannot afford to travel to Feast sites outside of Florida. After the first two weeks of registration, Fort Myers will be open to anyone who would like to come to Fort Myers. The capacity this year is set at 200.
Services will be held at the Holiday Inn Airport and Gulf Coast Town Center. This is a beautiful property with a large lake on its north side. There are many top-of-the-line restaurants at the Gulf Coast Town Center, across the main boulevard from the Holiday Inn. Brethren may wish to stay at the Holiday Inn, where a buffet breakfast comes free with their room.
