(James Haney, Major, U.S.Marine Corps Retired)
Welcome to the Sun City Center Chapter (MOAA)
serving South Hillsborough County & surrounding communities. While
our Chapter is located in Sun City Center, we encourage qualified active,
retired or former commissioned officers of the seven uniformed services of the
United States from Apollo Beach, Brandon,
Gibsonton, Lithia, Riverview, Ruskin, Valrico, and Wimauma to visit and join
our Chapter. We meet for a luncheon the first Wednesday of the month
during September through June in the “Florida Room” located on the main campus
of Sun City Center (945 North Course Lane). Our
meetings start at 11:00, and include a social gathering, brief business
session, a catered buffet meal with several entrees, and a guest speaker.
We are a very active Chapter with over 181 members
serving as the coordinating veteran’s organization for the community Memorial
Day Commemoration Service where all military veterans in the community who
passed during the time since the last service are recognized with a “Living
Flag Tribute”. In addition we recognize JROTC Honor Cadets and award
scholarships at nine high schools in South Hillsborough County.
We celebrated our 29th anniversary in 2019 of being
chartered as a chapter of MOAA and recognized all living original members. The
chapter has been recognized with the MOAA “Five Star Level of Excellence Award “ in recognition of the combined efforts of our members. We welcome you and encourage you to join us.
The prestige and influence of MOAA rests in the strength of all chapters and we need
your support. See the About US page for more detailed information

We are a 501(c)19 non-profit Veteran service
organization and donations made to support Chapter activities may be eligible for a tax
