After hosting their first major fundraiser of the year, an extremely successful 17th Annual Fashion Show & Luncheon on January 24, the Marco Island Woman’s Club (MIWC) took a well-deserved break to just have fun at their annual Cards & Games Party on February 9th at the Marco Island Yacht Club.

Carolyn Atkins and Arleen Soldano, event organizers, reported 82 members and guests were in attendance. President Jackie Pierce welcomed everyone and Past President Penny Weidner gave the invocation.

After enjoying a delicious gourmet lunch, the ladies enjoyed playing a variety of games, including Bridge, Hand, Knee and Foot, Mah Jong, Mexican Train, and Farkle. Table centerpieces were awarded to the first place winners of the games at each table. A 50/25/25 raffle was also held.

Marco Island Woman’s Club’s next meeting is Wednesday, March
