The Mystical Order of Mirams would like to thank everyone who participated in, donated to, and attended the 12th Annual Taste of the Islands.  We enjoyed having you and hope you enjoyed the fantastic Food, Silent Auction items, the Band, and the beautifully decorated Event Center.


Many, many thanks to the wonderful Event Center staff who coordinated this event and tirelessly set up and moved around the tables and chairs until they were perfect.  

Thank you to the wonderful restaurants of the Gulf Coast area.  Without you, there would not be a Taste of the Islands.  Your participation and support means so much to us and the community.

Thank you to our Silent Auction donors, there are too many to list.  Your generosity was beyond expectation.

Thank you to Mr. Big and the Rhythm Sisters who wowed the crowd with our National Anthem and then had them dancing until closing time.  


Thank you to our guests who support the Mirams by attending this event.  Many of you have attended for years and we can't tell you how much we appreciate you.  To our first time guests, we sincerely hope you had a great time and that we will see you again.

Thank you to the United States Marines for your service to our country and the inspiring job you do collecting toys for underpriviledged children in the local area.  Our guests were extremely generous again this year.

Thank you to our service personnel.  They took care of everyone with poise and professionalism.  

Thank you to the talented members of the Mystical Order of Mirams who worked for days to make the ball room so beautiful and functional.   They are the heart and soul of The Taste of the Islands.


If we have not named you specifically, please know that we are grateful to all those who helped make this Taste of the Islands one of the best.

The Mirams look forward to another unbelievable Taste of the Islands in 2019.  See you all there.
