On Sunday February 12th, 2017, the Naples Chapter members gathered for their monthly meeting at the Naples Sailing and Yacht Club. The meeting was very well attended by 124 guests, who enjoyed the usual delicious luncheon, while looking out on the many sail boats and yachts in the harbor. However, the main event was the interesting presentation given by Bill Ashley from our Washington Chapter. Bill spoke of his journey to Papua New Guinea, a country that is not very well known, nor travelled. He also showed us many fantastic looking pictures of the special tribal festival, which he was able to attend. A truly rare event.
Circumnavigators Club members and guests celebrated the holidays at the Coffee House Club in New York City on December 9th. In attendance were new members Nolin Robinson and Marisa Rothstein from New York, and Michael Puldy from Redondo Beach, CA. Naples Chapter President Barbara Roy was also welcomed. A wonderful evening was enjoyed by all.
