Robert Ballard, President of The Calusa Land Trust and longtime resident of Lee County, presented a very interesting historical and pictorial account of the establishment and development of the five communities that make up Pine Island: Bokeelia, Pineland, Pine Island Center,St. James City and Matlacha. 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.
