Pine Island walk down memory lane reunion

If you ever lived on Pine Island, a July 7 reunion at the Matlacha Park is for you. In 1993, some islanders decided they needed to see their friends - some who have moved away and the ones who have stayed.

The reunion is for a time to visit and relive the old times of Pine Island - the way it was. Retell stories and look at old pictures. Bring a potluck dish to share and gather together one day out of the year.

That day was decided to be held every year on the first Saturday after July 4. Eat at noon, but come early to meet up with friends.

For information,call Barbara Howard at (239) 440-7965.
