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
