The Naples Chapter met on April 12, marking the end of the Naples Season of 2022. Naples has traditionally been a resort community with “the Season” beginning in October and going into May, although that is changing with more year-round residents. However, the discussions centered on upcoming travel plans rather than returning to their other homes. With three of us attending the upcoming TCC Conference in Malta and continuing on with other travels and another soon on his way to Iran and another having just returned from South America, conversation was lively.

A new attendee, Mary Lou Ross, soon to be a TCC member, joined us via Cindy Shurtleff, the Pacific Northwest Coordinator. Cindy and Mary Lou met on a recent South American trip, and, upon learning that Mary Lou lives in Naples, Cindy referred Mary Lou to our group.
