Are you new to Ft Myers, or newly retired and hoping to make new friends? The Greeters Club
of Ft Myers just might be your answer.
Established in 1969, the Greeters Club is a social and philanthropic organization open to all
women in the Ft Myers/Cape Coral area. Originally a newcomer’s club, the Greeters’ focus has expanded to fostering long-term friendships between women through monthly luncheons, as well as shared social, cultural, and charitable activities scheduled throughout the month. Recent activities have included tours of nearby attractions (Naples Zoo, Hendry County Farm Tour, King Tut exhibit), ceramics, jewelry-making and other craft classes, “Game Day Tuesday” (mahjong, cards, dominos), “Chick Flicks” movie dates, “Lunch Bunch”, “Women Dining Out”, beach walks, kayaking trips, and monthly book club meetings. Members pick and choose activities according to their interests and schedule.
The Greeters meet on the third Thursday of each month, at 11:30 AM at the Landings Yacht,
Golf and Tennis Club. The meeting kicks off with a short social period followed by lunch and a program which usually includes a guest speaker. Reservations to attend the March 21st
luncheon are required by March 12 th . The cost is $27, and you’ll have a choice of a hot or cold entrée.
If you’d like to attend or if you’d like to learn more about the Greeters
Club, please contact Catherine at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to hear from you soon!
