Marco Sail and Power Squadron performs change of watch
Marco Island Sail and Power Squadron held their Change of Watch (installation of new officers) on the Marco Island Princess Friday, Feb. 10.
It was appropriate to have a sunset cruise to close out the old bridge of officers and wake with a new bridge.
The new bridge of officers are Rhonda Gloodt, commander; Gene Burson, executive officer; Tom Moor, administrative officer; Ted Reiss, educational officer; Lori Williams, secretary; Teri O’Connell, treasurer; John Maciolek, assistant educational officer; Kathleen Reynolds, assistant secretary, and Deborah Rago, assistant treasurer.
It was a beautiful night with a full moon and tropical breezes. The program started with the Pledge of Allegiance, led by Past Commander Steve Moore, and then followed by Past Commander Andrea Battaglia giving the invocation. The out-going commander, Bill Hughes, gave a welcome address to all in attendance.
