To the editor:
The Fort Myers Beach Woman's Club is very grateful for all of the community support for our annual home tour. We want to give a big thank you to the homeowners who agreed to feature their homes on the tour. The owners are: Itola and Anna Bertoni; Julie Tucker; Michael Thornton; and Dale and Kelly Chrisien.
We owe thanks to many other people for the support they gave us. The Beach Observer and the Island Sandpaper both did feature articles with pictures; the staff at both Century 21 Tripower Realty offices sold many tickets for us; Linda and Bob Beasley and Critters both made generous financial contributions to the club; and many friends of Woman's Club members served as hostesses in the homes.
Finally, we thank the neighbors of the homes that were open. We brought a lot of traffic to Laguna Shores, Fairview Isles and Egret Street. We appreciate your neighborliness and tolerance.
This annual home tour project allows the Woman's Club to contribute to several charities. Last year, we contributed to Bay Oaks Summer Camp for Kids, ACT, Ronald McDonald House, Gabriel House, LARC and Fort Myers Beach Elementary School. Our members will vote for their favorite charities again this year.
Thank you to all who helped the Fort Myers Beach Woman's Club with this year's Tour of Homes. We are especially grateful for the clear skies!
Jean Ann Walker, Chairperson
