About the Florida East Coast Koi and Pond Club: As noted above, the club was founded in1998 in January just ahead of the Central Florida Koi Show known at that time as the All Florida Koi and Pond sow (AFKAPS). Two of the original couples, Susanna and John Trittschuh (DeLand) and Sherri and Joe White (Port Orange) and Margaret Gillen (DeLand) attended the first meeting. Other charter members soon followed; Kathy and Jack Dunlop (Ormond). All are still active members of the club.
