For the first “After Five” of the new year, and the last of chamber president Nancy Carrington’s tenure, the Marco Island Area Chamber of Commerce met at Petit Soleil in the Shops of Olde Marco. The chamber held a “ribbon cutting” for this seven-days-a-week breakfast and lunch bistro, launched by Denis and Lisa Meurgue to fill the idle hours left them between operating the nearby Bistro Soleil, and manning their booth at the Farmers’ Market on Wednesday.
