Treasure Island newsletter. I live in Treasure Island and therefore I receive this newsletter every month. I love it !!! I asked the author and got permission to post it here on my blog so everybody can enjoy it.

Thank you to Jeff Jenson and the City of Treasure Island.

I have not figured out how to get the pictures in, but I might in time.

THE FINE PRINT: Published online since 2005 by the City of Treasure Island Public Information Office for exactly 1052 online sunscribers and forwarded by the Teeming Millions



Fourteen days into the far-off, futuristic year 2009 and everyone – yep, everyone, all 7,450 residents (and most of the tourists on the island who can carry a tune) – hums “Anticipation,” the great Carly Simon ketchup commercial song. Now, in reader-friendly bullet-point style, we bring you why we’re all humming with 2009 anticipation:

TCall us Carly Simon because that’s a lot to hum about.

The Islettes are always in fashion
All the pretty flowers in downtown TI are there because of the Treasure Islettes. Fresh off HollyFest, where they raised over 3 grand for pretty posies and beautification, the Islettes are at it again with the Treasure Islettes Fashion Show and Luncheon on February 7th at the Community Center. Tix are only $10 at the TI Chamber office. Or give Millie Fant a call at 367-1301.

Treasure hunting for a cure
As host city for Relay For Life for the Gulf Beaches, it’s important cancer survivors and Relay volunteers (many whom are both) mingle extensively. A superb mingling moment is at the Friendly Fisherman in John’s Pass Village on Thursday, January 15th at 6:30pm. Learn about the Relay, hear fundraising ideas and share your survivor experience. Oh, and there’s food and door prizes, too. Details at 727-812-7009.

That’s a signpost up ahead: your next stop: the Rotary Challenge!
There we are – golfing or playing tennis on a fine February weekend at Treasure Bay – and at the same time, we’re fundraising for the TI kid’s programs. “How can this be?” we ask ourselves in one of those dreamy Twilight Zone whispers. Relax, Rod Serling, it’s just the 10th Annual Gulf Beaches Rotary Golf and Tennis Challenge. Every year, this event raises thousands of dollars for TI’s Junior golf and tennis. There’s a party on Friday, February 20th and the actual golfing/tennising on Saturday the 21st. Click on the link above for the poster, entry form and to enter the Rotary Zone.
