On Tuesday April 12th 60 members of the Marco Bay Yacht Club traveled from Marco Island to
the Rod and Gun Club in Everglades City for lunch. We had 10 boats and six land yachts (cars)
Two groups of boats traveled from Marco, the north group was led by John Kernan and the
south group by Barry Gelfand. They met at the Coon Key Light and traveled together to the
Barron River. We had our Commodore Sandy LaMontagne, Vice Commodore Linda Gagnon,
and Rear Commodore Charles Erker, along with several Past Commodores, many members
including six new members and a couple of guests in attendance.
Lunch was served on the screened in porch of the Historic Rod & Gun Club overlooking the
Barron River. Frank Mulligan, the trip organizer, gave a brief welcome to everyone and later our
Commodore Sandy LaMontagne addressed those present. A good time, with good food and
great friends, was had by all.
