Cruiser’s Appreciation


The Anchorage Advisory Committee for the Town of Fort Myers Beach and Matanzas on the Bay co-sponsored the 9th Annual Cruiser’s Appreciation Day Saturday April 2. The event showcases the Town’s 70-ball mooring field and facilities, and thanks the boaters who use it.  The day was a huge success and could not have happened without the help from the following people and businesses:

Thanks to Awesome Sauce for their great music.
