Lunch with Friends is a collaboration between the Marco Island Greater YMCA and Our Daily Bread Food Pantry, the Togetherness Projects and it includes adults over 60 from Marco Island, Goodland and Isles of Capri. It also enjoys the support of local restaurants, businesses and individuals.

A very popular venue for friendship and networking for all area residents “60 or better,” the recent Lunch with Friends at the Family Church on Winterberry boasted 112 attendees.

The collective statement from the luncheon guests was that it is a lot of fun just getting out of the house and meeting new people, and the food is always delicious.

The January lunch was prepared by the Island Country Club with General Manager Bid Bakkar and his staff offering pot roast, mashed potatoes, fresh green beans and cookies and brownies. Past restaurant contributors are CJ’s on the Bay, Nacho Mamas, Kretch’s, Hilton Marco Island, Mango’s, Joey’s Pizza, Verdi’s and Speakeasy.

Deborah Passero, the Greater YMCA Healthy Living Director led the crowd to a series of chair exercises. The best part – you could also be the lucky winner of a door prize – all for attending a complimentary lunch and meeting new friends. And they offer free rides to the luncheon and back home.

New Location: Lunch with Friends has a new location starting with the February 20 luncheon. It will be held at the Main Hall of Marco Lutheran Church located at 525 N. Collier Blvd.

New Dates: Lunch will be held on the third Wednesday of the month at 11 AM. Please RSVP to Nancy Kot by phone (706-566-8532) or email (
