October was a month of planning and new beginnings for the Caloosa Dive Club. We started a new business year with a new slate of officers in place. First order of business was planning the 2018 dive and event calendar. I would like to thank everyone who attended and volunteered to host or help with an event. I will send out a full schedule in a few days. Club calendars with full details are being printed. See Sandy to place an order.
We held our annual awards banquet on October 20 at Anthonys On The Boulevard. We enjoyed a very nice dinner and recognized a host of club award winners. A short version of the club historical project was presented along with a Friends and Family video produced by Jeff Kader.
Amazingly the Caloosa Dive Club is approaching 50 years of activity. Not many enterprises reach 50 years and especially not ones originating in dark bar rooms in Cape Coral. Especially since back then there were not many bars to choose from. Yet here we are still promoting diving, serving community and making new friends. Also incredible we still have founding members active in the club. Jim Hall and Dick and Mae Jones were in attendance. Thanks you folks for what you created many years ago.
