For the January “let’s welcome the New Year 2020” luncheon, Lunch with Friends were treated to a delicious Tex Mex tradition of chicken, rice, beans and salad. Nacho Mamas is Marco’s go-to-place if you were craving a platter of sizzling Fajitas or its Nacho Grande.
Nancy Kot reminded the guests that this is the second time Nacho Mamas has sponsored a luncheon, and if they are ever at the Marco Walk Plaza, make sure to stop by and say thank you to the owners Eric and Nancy Phillips. Nacho Mamas has been an important part of the fabric of the island for the last 14 years.
Reverend Tom Boeck of the Marco Lutheran Church provided the inspiration and blessing to start the new year. He reminded the guests that it was their privilege to co-sponsor the luncheon along with Our Daily Bread Food Pantry and Marco’s YMCA of South Collier.
He also shared with the guests that the third Wednesday of each month is a very special month as the room is filled with friends making new friends. He also thanked all the great volunteers who make this luncheon happen every month.
Nancy Kot announced that the Our Daily Bread Food Pantry will be open for those who would like to pick up groceries after lunch. The 175+ guests enjoyed fresh baked cookies provided by Gourmet Gals Cooking Club, and also took home the leftovers.
