Our time together this week will be spent having a drink next to the water and under the palms! Thursday, May 28th, will be this month’s Sunset Social at The Getaway, a relaxing escape overlooking the mangroves of the Weedon Island Preserve. Come by land or by sea…just come and join us for some fun and fellowship over a beer or a fruity island drink!
Join us this Thursday at Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront for a meeting and program by local concept artist, Ernesto Piloto.
“My work as an artist is about life reflections on how we can transform our attitudes through a simple decision. I constantly reflect on how we live, the social conditioning and how it can imprint our conscience.” -Ernesto
The club had a blast at the Stamp Out Hunger project this weekend! A huge THANK YOU to all the volunteers who showed up to help us run two post office drop off sites, including several members of the Rotary Club of the Gulf Beaches and a handful of Two Hangry Chicks volunteers! That was a massive amount of food donations we sorted and loaded, and we most certainly could not have done it without you!
We are doubling up this week! There will be a Thursday meeting AND a Saturday service project!
