‘Family Secrets’ from Vero’s legendary Sextons are topic of Jan. 11 Emerson Center program  


Waldo Sexton

Considering that Waldo Sexton is perhaps the most notable patriarch of Vero Beach and his descendants are some of our most interesting and engaging neighbors, a special “public” family round-table is being convened on the stage of The Emerson Center and everyone is invited to attend. This fast-paced, free-wheeling discussion will happen on Thursday, January 11 at 7:00 PM. Admission is free and is offered on a first-come basis.

This event is presented as part of the venue’s popular Florida Humanities Series in cooperation with the Treasure Coast History Festival. Descendants of the legendary Waldo Sexton, the innovative developer of Vero Beach landmarks such as McKee Botanical Gardens, Driftwood Inn, Ocean Grill, Patio Restaurant and Szechuan Palace Restaurant, will share the family’s favorite recollections of their visionary grandfather and update us on the family whose name has become synonymous with “Vero Beach.” Featured family members will include Sexton grandchildren Sean Sexton, Mark Tripson, Logan Tripson Geeslin, Jenz Tripson, Bonnie Schwey, Randy Sexton and many others.
