In general our seasonal programs are the second Sunday of the month. The seasonal calendar lasts from November thru April. This year we will be meeting at The Naples Sailing & Yacht Club  where we will have a short social time, followed by brunch and the speaker. We welcome speakers from our own group and if you need help in assembling pictures, we will be happy to help you. We have all the equipment needed to present. Our “Getting to Know You Parties” are planned for the summer. These are informal parties. These events usually are in a local restaurant, on the beach or in someone’s home. We try to mix it up, so that everyone gets a chance to meet each other… less formal…we strive towards a friendly group who just plain love to travel and meet interesting people. We have three lined up for the summer, but, it’s possible we may “get together” at an additional time. Just watch for a newsletter release.  (Or check the website) The Lunch Bunch meets on the second Saturday following the Sunday program. This group consists of females and they explore travel, interesting places, perhaps a partner to travel with, chit chat. Informal. They meet at local restaurants. You should sign up for the lunch at the regular Sunday program if you plan to attend. Due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control, we sometimes have to substitute programs. Cruise from December 4th to 9th.  We have a fun time with parties and sharing.  Contact Pat Classen for further information.  THERE WILL BE A MONTHLY NEWSLETTER IN YOUR EMAIL WHICH WILL ANNOUNCE THE DETAILS


Sunday programs at the Naples Sailing and Yacht Club require the men to wear a jacket, ties optional
