Guale Myers Society Gala

The historic fraternal organization known as the Guale Myers Society, welcomed an exclusive guest list of family and friends to celebrate their acheivements at their annual gala hosted at the Gingerbread House on December 12.  Recognized by their trademark red tartan jackets, the society derives its name from the Guale Indians of Coastal Georgia, who befriended early settlers, with whom they traded tobacco.  Although it is believed that the group was started as a cigar appreciation society,  the modern GMS is primarily focused on embedding itself within Savannah-area political, business and civic institutions to help quietly shape the face of the city.
