A vintage red Cadillac convertible was parked at the entrance of the Yacht Club with “50s kids” greeting members and guests as they arrived to join the fun. From left, Alice Jobe, Deb DeVries and Laurie and Randy Harris.

The Marco Island Yacht Club hosted its annual welcome back to Marco Island event. The theme was “Shake, Rattle and Stroll” and featured the music and dancing of the mid-1950s to mid-60s when “American Bandstand” was all the rage. A vintage red Cadillac convertible was parked at the entrance of the club. Attendees were adorned in costumes ranging from poodle skirts and letter sweaters. Angela Holt, chair of the member events committee, greeted everyone. An outstanding buffet was prepared by Chef Robert Aylwin, and the entertainer for the night was the fabulous Wendy Renee, who came dressed for the party in her red polka-dotted dress.

All “the kids” got into the act and danced way past Marco Midnight to the tunes of entertainer Wendy Renee.
