A Time for Toasts
Let the celebrations begin. First, we wish you all a Happy New Year of great fortune and sound health. Next, we toast the 10th anniversary of the Naples Winter Wine Festival in a keepsake special section (p. 57). In its remarkable run, the NWWF has won our community global renown for its generosity ($74 million raised for needy children) and flair. What more could you have wished for? Finally, and with some humility, Gulfshore Life has its own enterprise to cheer: our 40th year in business. In each issue of 2010, we shall offer samples of our evolution as an observer, reporter and believer in this cherished slice of life along the Gulfshore. We start with “40 Years of You” (p. 42).
But enough with the words for the moment. Here’s the way we were… in pictures. I hope you enjoy the stroll down memory lane as much as we did in bringing the images to life once again.
