Weight Watchers could be coming to the Boca Grande Community Center, if enough islanders show interest in the program.
Marta Howell, executive director of the Friends of the Boca Grande Community Center, has already claimed a spot as a charter member.
“There have been a few people out here who have done so well with the program, and they are an inspiration,” she said. “But Englewood and Port Charlotte are a long trip, especially for people who work on the island. It would be almost impossible for many of them to make it to a meeting off-island.”
Several members of the community have expressed an interest in having meetings on the island.
Howell has already had Susan Forbes, a member services specialist from Venice, out to look at the Community Center facilities.
There is a meeting scheduled for Nov. 7 at 4 p.m. in the Houghton Room, formerly the Reference Room.
The Community Center is looking for at least 30 people to come to the informational meeting. If you are interested, contact the Friends’ office at 964-0827.
