The occasion was the first Global Speaker Series Luncheon, held at the Beach Club, January 13th, featuring Immigration Attorneys Gwen Robosson and Austin Fragomen who spoke on the topic of Migration Policy: A Global Crisis.
The event was sponsored by the Stanley M. Rumbough Jr. Legacy Society Fund, which gave PBCA President Mary Robosson a perfect opportunity to enlighten the audience about the accomplishments and generosity of its benefactor, Stan Rumbough. Upon his passing, the Rumbough family contributed $1 million dollars to establish the fund in his memory.
Stanley M. Rumbough, Jr. was a highly respected leader who loved Palm Beach with a passion and inspired others to strive for a better community. The establishment of The Stanley M. Rumbough, Jr. Legacy Society honors his memory, and fulfills one of the key objectives of the Palm Beach Civic Association mission; to protect and enhance the quality of life by educating and engaging residents on key town issues, working with local government, and encouraging citizen involvement in the community.
