Southwest Florida (Sarasota) Chapter Updates

In-Person Meeting of the Sarasota-Area Chapter on May 12

Hello Everyone!

Our next meeting, our first in person since February 2020, is scheduled for Wednesday, May 12, at noon. We have an outdoor table reserved at a new location, the Grove Restaurant in Lakewood Ranch. This restaurant was recommended by a member and has been used by many groups recently. People seem pleased with their COVID precautions and the setting and food. We are reserved at the Firepit table outside. We are able to order from the full lunch menu, which can be found on their Web site below.

Seeing as how we are outside and I have no idea how many people are coming I do not have a themed discussion topic yet. If you have any non-political ideas for everyone to share to facilitate discussion let me know . We definitely will catch up with each other and discuss potential future meetings and presentations.


Grove Restaurant
10670 Boardwalk Loop
Lakewood Ranch, FL 34202
(941) 893-4321

Please let me know if you are able to attend and if you have any questions.

I am very excited to see you all again!

Amanda Davis
Southwest Florida Chapter Coordinator
