The Newcomers Club of Marco Island met recently for their monthly luncheon at Hideaway Beach Club.

Special Events Chairs Sophia Bartucci and Kim Heinemann worked tirelessly on the long-anticipated, popular Welcome Back Luncheon. This year’s theme was “Put Your Best Foot Forward.” Fabulous shoes of every style and size adorned the tables as decorations and served as part of the shoe silent auction.

The luncheon began with a social hour followed by a delicious lunch at noon. After the dessert, models representing present and past board members and presidents walked the catwalk in fashions provided by Beach Daisy, Georgie’s and Patchington’s.
