To the editor:
We want to acknowledge the article in the Eagle for helping to make our recent Fourth Annual Bokeelia Parks' Reunion a success.
We are also grateful to Tropic Isle Park, especially Manager Kristie Carver, for use of the clubhouse for this great event.
Our annual gathering has grown, and has helped so many of our former neighbors to reconnect. When the Charlotte Harbor and Bocilla Island RV Parks (located at the tip of Bokeelia past Captain Con's) were closed in 2003, some moved to Tropic Isle, and others eventually relocated in homes around Pine Island.
These yearly reunions help to preserve the area's early history, and retain the precious memories.
Kudos to the Eagle, which always helps to inform residents and keep the wonderful Pine Island community spirit alive.
