Members and guests meet monthly on the third Saturday, September – November and January – May at The Landings Yacht, Golf and Tennis Club in Fort Myers. We gather at 11:30. Lunch ($20) starts at noon followed by the program and brief general meeting of the membership.
An open Board meeting is held at 10:15 a.m. to conduct branch business.
Sometimes our meetings are a celebration; sometimes they provoke thought and debate; sometimes they get our funny bone.
