Candi Schott and Kathie Richel welcome prospective members.

The Marco Island Yacht Club was the backdrop for the September Newcomers Luncheon. Members gathered and were busy catching up with friends returning from their summer travels.  It was a busy afternoon with lunch, gifts and an educational presentation.

Molly DuVall, environmental specialist from Collier County Conservation Program, was a guest. She gave a presentation on the many preserves in the county. If you would like to attend a luncheon and join in the fun and meet some fabulous women, you can contact our membership chairs at (note on the subject line attention: Membership chairs). The luncheons are held the third Thursday of the month at the Marco Island Yacht Club. – Doreen Herriman/Submitted
