On Sunday, April 9th, 2017 the Naples Chapter presented its last speaker luncheon of the season, which was attended by 125 members and guests.  Our member Paula O’Connor gave a most interesting and detailed account of her recent trip to Iran.  Paula traveled the entire country with a group of people from the Naples Council of World Affairs. They saw all the important historical sights, as well as the modern cities with their great architecture.  Everywhere they went, they were met with the  friendliest of people.  Paula is eager to go back to Iran.

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.
