To the editor:
The Town of Fort Myers Beach will again celebrate Cruiser's Appreciation Day and the success of its 70-mooring ball anchorage from noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 24. The mooring field is located on the Gulf of Mexico, near the western intersection of the Great Loop Route, Intracoastal Waterway and the Caloosahatchee River. It has been providing a wonderful sub-tropical destination for waterway cruisers for many years, including easy access to one of the world's finest beaches. Cruiser's Appreciation Day will have food and beverages, live entertainment, and a raffle with items donated by local businesses.
The fifth annual celebration will again be located in the parking lot of Matanzas Inn under the Matanzas Pass Bridge. Matanzas Inn is the upland service provider for the mooring field and will help sponsor the event. For boaters attending Cruiser's Appreciation Day without overnighting in the mooring field, feel free to use the day dock at Bowditch Point Regional Park, and ride the trolley to the event. We invite everyone, boaters and non-boaters, to come by and help us celebrate the day.
