Port Royal was filled with cheers and laughter Thursday night, March 24, as the 40 members of GNL Class XV joined the ranks of Greater Naples Leadership alumni. President Jen Walker welcomed and President-elect Bob Berlam congratulated our newest graduates, and Susan Jones, incoming chair of the Community Service Committee, encouraged each to put what they had learned into action. As Class Chair Paul Cioffi and Program Chair Susan Jones presented the graduates with gifts, family and friends cheered their success. The class skit, featuring Ronnie Antik, Bill Brock, Mike Isermann, Ann Nagan, Rusty Troth and Van Williams, was the highlight of the evening, raising hoots of laughter as the actors recreated an old time radio show, sprinkled with current events in Collier County, on Station WGNL. A standing ovation marked the evening a complete success.
