As I get ready to close out the year, I have a few thoughts for you….…holiday, moving, giving, 2017 and staying in the loop…..
The Holidays: As we head to the holidays, I want to say “Kudos” to Tony Lapi and his team at Tween Waters Inn. An annual tradition for Elizabeth, our “crew” and I- we all head out to Captiva the night after Thanksgiving for their festivities – There are carolers, candy canes and Santa, with the event ending with their “Tree Lighting” ceremony and wonderful fireworks – it is the best way to start off the Holidays!
Getting Moving: It is that time of year again… time to get moving for a healthier you! Healthy Lee is bringing back Million Mile Movement again for 2017 – you don’t want to miss this. Every step counts… Registration for teams or individuals starts on December 10th. We will start tracking “movement” on January 9th – the goal? To get Lee County moving for a million miles before March 31st! Are you in? www.HealthyLee.com – Need a team, we would love to have you as part of our Chamber team, just email me firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get you started!
Time to Give: If you working on your end of year donations, please don’t forget our newly created fund in honor of Terry Simon, being held with at Florida Gulf Coast University. “Go Cubbies”

Moving forward: The Chamber staff are working hard on 2017 – though we still have our standards, keep an eye out for “renovated” and new programming! We want you start January off with being healthy…. The focus of our Women in Business, our Executive Roundtable program and our monthly luncheon is Health. We are finalizing the details for our panel of speakers for the January luncheon on 1/19.
Keeping in the loop: Want to hear more about companies joining the chamber, upcoming events, new educational programming and updates on our Strategic Plan…then email me and let me know. I will personally email you updates and keep you informed on our Chamber.
I hope you joining us at our Annual Holiday Party, sponsored by Lott & Gaylor… we are being hosted by the Denise and her team at the Barrel Room at the Twisted Vine here in downtown Fort Myers. If you have some time on 12/14, stop by the Chamber for our “Holiday Open House”. We will be here from 3:00 to 6:00pm with sweet and savory treats from our Chamber staff and MCS committee.
I wish everyone a safe, happy and healthy holiday!
