Gasparilla Trip 5/2012


Members of the Lakewood Ranch Women’s Club enjoyed a day trip to Gasprilla Island on Thursday, May 19. The group arrived via bus to Boca Grande and lunched on crab cake and key lime pie at the historic Gasparilla Inn. They were treated to pirate legends and Florida history in the grand dining room and spent the afternoon shopping the boutiques in Boca Grande.

The trip was chaired by Janet Hough and Jean Muccini, members of the program committee.

Vice President Mary Beth Steffens summed up the feeling of the WC Board and membership:  “Our Women’s Club trip to the Gaspiralla Inn was great.  The Inn was charming, the food delicious, the history of the inn was interesting and well presented.  Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves because you [Janet and Jean] had all the details covered and were well organized.  On behalf of the Women’s Club and the Program Committee, thank you for a job well done!”
