By Greg & Pat Watson: On Saturday, August 24th, 41 Tampa Bay Section members celebrated being members of the Club. The range of membership spanned from as little as one year to as many as 50 years! That’s right!!! Bob and Catherine Martino are our first members to receive the coveted 50 year membership award. In addition to their certificate, the club awarded Bob and Catherine with afree year of membership. We were honored to have MBCA Regional Director Hank Webb present the award to Bob and Catherine. Hank and his wife Jean made the 4-hour trip from Fleming Island for this special celebration and to meet our club members. The event can best be described as GREAT MEMBERS, beautiful day, perfect view, excellent food. There was a lot of chatting, hugging, and laughing as members greeted each other. Everyone seemed to be in great spirits, which was easy with the gorgeous view of New Pass and the glistening intercoastal waterway. The event was held at the Chart House restaurant on Longboat Key. After enjoying time for refreshments and socializing,a leisurely paced three-course lunch was served. The club sponsored the majority of the price as partof our appreciation to our loyal members. The Chart House staff provided terrific service, even customizing the menus for the club. The variety of entrees gave everyone a selection they enjoyed.Thanks to everyone who attended and especially for being the BEST Mercedes Benz Club members inFlorida -- maybe the world. For those who were unable to attend, enjoy the photos in the newsletter andon Facebook. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the next event in September at Tampa Theatre.
