fiber arts, pottery and
more. Presented by

Arts, the festival was

On Oct. 20, Santa’s sleigh turned into
a golf cart. A field of over 90 golfers
teed it up in Christmas Island Style’s
Annual Golf Outing at the Marriott’s
Rookery course in Fiddler’s Creek,
raising funds for the seasonal
celebrations just ahead. A glorious
morning gave a hint of the cooler
weather that comes along with the
Christmas season island, and a who’s
who of Marco Islanders got out on the
course or manned the volunteer
tables to help out.

Iberia Bank had literally tons
of stuff going on in it’s
parking lot Oct. 13. The
ninth in it’s series of “shred
parties” once again brought
out a steady stream of
Islanders looking to dispose
of unwanted but sensitive
documents. Jay Uzzalinno,
account manager for ShredIt, which donates the use of
the massive truck-mounted
shredder, said their truck
holds four tons of “shred,”
and he counts on it heading
home loaded to the max.
This edition of the shredding
event was designated the
“Family, Physical and
Financial Fitness Shred
Party,” with all proceeds
benefitting the “Y Reads”
program at the Greater
Marco Family YMCA.

More than 350 people enjoyed an
Italian dinner, hosted by the San
Marco Knights of Columbus on
Columbus Day in the parish center
Oct. 9. Members of the Knights of
Columbus called it the”Preseason
Dinner,” a warm up for when
season begins. Originally the
first spaghetti dinner, with
Knights organizers Al
Schulick, Herman Giglio,
Chris Karlik and Bud
LaMendola, was done to
help a church woman’s
group in 1978. The next
dinner and subsequent fish
dinner nights have been
Knights of Columbus
fundraisers. Prep work for
the dinner begins the day
before. In season more than
600 take part in dinners
during Lent.

Mother Nature rendered her
own tribute to the late Stan
Gober on Oct. 7. Stan’s
reopened for its first weekend
of the season, for the first time
without the iconic Goodland
namesake, who died in June
at 86. Midway through
Sunday afternoon, a deluge
arrived, joining the hundreds
of revelers who came to
partake of the goodtime fun
and remember the man who
wasn’t there. “We’re not going
to replace him – we can’t. But
we are not changing this
place. That would be the
biggest mistake I ever made,”
said Steve Gober, Stan’s
youngest son, now in the
position of owner/manager.

Say you were in the
market for a handbag?
Some inexpensive
bracelets or watches?
Miscellaneous ceramics,
$10 tutus, or a windup
ballerina doll? Perhaps
you need a Cuisinart, a
hair dryer, or any in a
wide range of mah jongg
accessories? The FiveHour Sale on Oct. 22 in the
Y’s gymnasium, was
organized and presented
by the ladies of the Jewish
Congregation of Marco
Island. The slogan for the
event was “holiday gift
bargains for the whole
family,” and the Y and
