THE LEGACY OF PBWL
The power of one woman changed life for the better for all of us in Pelican Bay. In 1995, Muriel Lord had an idea. She called together 15 women to help her create an organization to offer activities that would connect women while they were together for season in Naples. She knew making friends and finding meaningful and enjoyable activities in which to participate would enhance time spent in Pelican Bay. The group’s excitement led to the formation of the Pelican Bay Women’s League. This vibrant group was and is all about creating friendships through spirited events.
To further enhance the quality of life in spirit of community through social, cultural and educational programs and activities.
THE FIRST OFFICERS
The all-volunteer group had a mission to offer social gatherings, stimulating programs, and other activities to enrich the spirit of community in Pelican Bay, The first elected officers were (left to right): Shirley Varley, vice president, finance; Muriel Lord, president; Cornelia Kriegh, secretary/interest groups; and Kathy Mann vice president, programs.
Welcome to paradise! We hope you’ll join the Pelican Bay Women’s League so we can include you in our sisterhood. Becoming a member is the perfect way to fit in quickly and make new friends who live in Pelican Bay.
This season, we’ve planned a whole slate of activities for you to enjoy. Activities include luncheons at area country clubs offering entertainment, guided tours of museums and organizations, and over twenty interest groups. To top off the season, we will host a gala to celebrate our Silver Anniversary.
Please join us!
