Message From the President

Thank you for visiting our website. Whether you are a member or simply looking for information on our great Society I hope you will find this website a useful resource. Our goal in creating this website is to provide our membership with access to information, relevant links, and events that will benefit members and perpetuate lasting friendships. Since our inception in 1932 it has been our mission to bring together those individuals and their descendents who served in the construction, operation, maintenance or protection of the Panama Canal. To accomplish this we organize events throughout the year with our biggest event, our Annual Reunion, scheduled each year in Orlando. Our members travel across the globe to attend the Annual Reunion where they celebrate class reunions, family reunions, or just to connect with friends and family. It doesn’t take long for them to slip back into the great culture, camaraderie and good times we shared while living in the Panama Canal Zone. Our membership has extended beyond those that served and their descendents to include Associate Members who are sponsored by current members. As our Zonian culture has expanded, so have our friendships with those who identify with our culture and have an interest in being part of our Society. If you are interested in membership or want to see if you qualify please visit the “Membership” link on this site. If you were stationed in Panama while in any branch of the Armed Forces, or are a descendant of someone who was stationed there, you qualify for membership. Thank you again for visiting our site and we welcome any suggestions you may have. If you have not found the information you were seeking please do not hesitate to contact our Society office. I hope to see you at one of our upcoming events.


Mike Coffey
