Wednesday, July 8th - MANASOTA BEACH CLUB, 7660 Manasota Key Rd, Englewood, FL 34223
Peace River Painters has been invited to participate in a special painting opportunity at the 60 year-old Manasota Beach Club in Englewood. The property is located on Manasota Key and is surrounded by the tranquil waters of Lemon Bay and the Gulf. This is a precursor to a special event to be held there in the fall when we will take part in a paint-out, reception and sale to benefit the Club in its efforts for Florida Historical Landmark designation, thereby saving a large chunk of Gulf front property from commercial development. Local painter extraordinaire Bill Farnsworth is spearheading the event and will be painting with us on Wednesday. Let's be part of the effort to preserve "old Florida" and all its charm.
