Everyone thoroughly enjoyed Robert’s facts, stories and recollections.  Afterwards, Robert expressed thanks to Pine Island Garden Club for the cash donation and support provided in other ways. Volunteers to clear trails at Calusa Land Trust work parties and/or to become members are always needed and appreciated.

Marty then acknowledged representatives from the 4 organizations supported by the 

Pine Island Garden Club

Marty stated that in addition to the cash donations, the club provided workers and funding for the island beautification done at Pine Island Elementary, Kiwanis Park, Bokeelia Post Office, Beacon of Hope plantings,The Museum of the Island and the Garden Park.
