Lately, there has been a lot of talk about the many families that have been coming back to the BPKFL for multiple generations, and that talk has led some people to compile some very interesting facts about those families that come back year after year.
Mike and Donna from Jacksonville, Florida let us know that, over the years, they have brought 168 people to the BPKFL as their guests. Most of these people were part of their church and their extensive circle of friends. They are summer visitors that have been coming for at least 40 years, but even so, that’s a whale of a number!
But who came first? And who has been coming back the longest? Here are just a few of the families that have distinguished themselves in those categories. They are:
The Treece Family which includes Gordon and Delores from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. They have been at the BPFKL for the opening of lobster season for 49 consecutive years. We are fairly certain that no one can beat that number. In fact, they were BPKFL guests FIVE YEARS before the Gladwell family took over the property!
The Horner family which includes Bill and Jessica from Tampa, Florida. Last year the family hung a huge banner on the canal side of motel two during lobster season that proudly proclaimed that the Horner family has been coming back to the BPKFL for fifty years!
So much could be said about these families and what they have mean to us at the BPKFL. Their unfailing love of the property and each other is an inspiration, and we are so grateful to be a part of your family vacations. Thank you for entrusting us with your memories and we look forward to many, many more memories to come.
