MEET OUR BOARD

Annette Nilles
Annette NillesPresident
I moved to Florida from West Texas in 1980 and never looked back. My husband and I have been married for 34 years and have had the same Mustang in our garage for 33 of those years. It is a part of our family. I have been a member of the GulfShore Mustang Club for 9 years. Our club stays very active with Mystery Cruises, 5th Friday Celebrations, Cruise Ins, Car Shows, Parades, Club Picnics and raising money and awareness for our charities.
Shelley Wilcoxson
Shelley WilcoxsonVice President
Shelley has enjoyed her passion for Mustangs over the last 38 years along with her husband, Jim. After attending several GSMC events, the Wilcoxson’s joined the club and have been very active since. She also enjoys weaving as her hobby and small business. Shelley & Jim have 2 grown children & 4 grandchildren that they love spending time with. They own 2 Shelby GT’s, a 2007 Coupe and 2008 Convertible. Shelley says the love of Mustang is what brought her & Jim together in the first place so many years ago so it is a lifestyle for Wilcoxson’s. The cars are just part of the family.

Cherri NewburySecretary
My Stable started with a “Sweet 16” birthday gift in 1976. My dark green ’67
Mustang Coupe, named “Baby”. She’s been by my side ever since. When I met this GSMC group, I knew I found my car family! Some of the most Car Crazy, Fun Loving, Caring and Charitable folks I have ever met. We may Cruise for Fun,
but it is our Charity “Builders Care” that keeps our engines revved.
Come and JOIN the fun!
Robert Bovard
Robert BovardTreasurer
I moved from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania to Ft Myers in 2003 to work in the construction industry as a CADD operator. I became friends with the owner of a 2005 Mustang, he took me for a drive and I was hooked. Soon after that I went out and bought a 2007 GT, joined GSMC and the rest as they say is history.

Mark Wilson
Mark WilsonEvents Chair
I’m  retired from a career in purchasing and transportation management. I’ve owned my Mustang since 2017 but my Mustang roots date back to 1973 when I learned to drive at the age of 14 in my dad’s 1965 Mustang automatic coupe. My wife and I enjoy attending car shows and I look forward to working on event planning.
Kirby Newbury
Kirby NewburyMembership Chair
Dating my high school sweetheart in the 70’s and going to the Drive-In Movies in “her 1967 Mustang” are some of the great memories we share. Cherri and I moved from St. Louis to Fort Myers in 2019. Now we’re enjoying traveling the roads in that same Green Mustang, making new memories as members of the GulfShore Mustang Club of SW Florida. She and I are having fun in all the GSMC club activities like, Parades, Car Shows, Club Picnics, Cruise Ins, and 5th Friday Celebrations. We’re also having fun with our club’s fund raising events and raising awareness for charities, like Builders Care. Come join us today!
Debby Schaefer
Debby SchaeferSunshine Committee
I’m known as Debby with a “Y’. My husband John and I moved to Fort Myers FL from Sandusky, Ohio in 1999. I bought my 1996 Red Mustang Convertible (Betty Boop) right off the delivery truck in Lorain Ohio in the Fall of 1995. In 2007 we discovered The Gulfshore Mustang Club at their Mustang Birthday Celebration where I then became a member and have been a very active member since. In Feb. of 2013 I implemented the Sunshine Chair for the Club. I enjoy cheering people up with cards and just making them smile. John & I have been together since 1979, we have 2 daughters, a granddaughter and a grandson.
