Let’s celebrate. When we gather at the Cape Codder in Hyannis next June 13-15, we will have much to celebrate. First, we will rejoice in our connection and friendships as descendants of John and Deborah Wing. We have a goodly heritage, and we will have many opportunities to explore our connections to Sandwich, Massachusetts, our ancestral home. At the same time Sandwich is celebrating its 375th Anniversary. On the 14th they will have a big parade, and they have invited descendants of the first families to participate. We need volunteers to dress up like our 17th Century ancestors and bring our tax payment, a box of butter. If you do not care to march, it would be wonderful if you wore a Wing shirt as you join the crowd of spectators. We will have a picnic at the Wing Fort House, and we will have access to many other places that are part of our family history.
So, plan now to be there next June. There will be time for fun and relaxation as well. The Cape Codder has two pools, one with a wave, and many other entertainment choices. More information about food, activities, and our schedule will come very shortly.the Cape Codder has been recently renovated, and features an indoor Wave Pool and a Saltwater Outdoor Heated Pool! Lots of fun for the families! So, put it on your calendar and lock in your hotel reservations soon, using the special Wing Family rates.

It is easy to become a member of the Wing Family of America,
Inc. (WFA). If you are a blood or adopted descendant of one of the
three brothers, John, Daniel or Stephen Wing, you can become a member
of the WFA. Wives and husbands of Wing descendants can also become
members of the WFA. It is very likely that if your last name is Wing or
if your mother or a grandmother had the maiden name of Wing that you
are descended from one of the three brothers.
