The City of Marco Island depends on the efforts of countless volunteers for their guidance, expertise and hard work they offer through their efforts on a number of advisory boards and committees. In their honor, the City of Marco Island held a Volunteer Luncheon. Jerry Gibson, City Council Chair and Master of Ceremonies, told the attendees the City depended on them and mentioned how volunteers are the backbone of the City. “This luncheon is for you and all that you do to enhance our City.” Each volunteer was acknowledged and given a City flag.
The luncheon has become an annual event. The staff of the Parks and Recreation Department put the celebration together complete with balloons and toasting glasses. The festive gathering concluded with drawings for door prizes.
Boards and Committees include the Arts Advisory, Audit Advisory, Beach Advisory, Beautification, Bike Paths, Code Enforcement, Parks and Rec, Planning, Utilities Advisory, Veteran’s, Waterways, Police and Fire/Rescue Foundations, to name a few. If you wish to become a volunteer contact Laura Litzan at the City of Marco Island, 239/389-5010. A calendar of committee meetings may be found at the City’s website, www.cityofmarcoisland.com
