1. One 'shell' of a show this Friday and Saturday

“Such beautiful creatures live in the sea,” said Paulette Carabelli, a member of the Marco Island Shell Club. “Look around you when you go to the beach. You see shells. Some are pretty; some are not. Shells can be found in many sizes and colors.

“And, believe it or not, living animals used to live inside before they washed up on the beach,” she adds. “Now look at what you can make from these once living creatures.”

Through much of season, the Marco Island Shell Club members gathered every Tuesday morning in the United Church of Marco Island.
