Thanksgiving 2019

Useppa Thanksgiving – Thoughts and photos by UseppaGin – It was a peaceful Thanksgiving on the Island. Families took their time over turkey dinner at the old Collier Inn. Some chose to dine inside. Others sat on the patio savoring soft warm breezes. Children swam. Grownups sipped a glass or two of chilled wine. The staff graciously and professionally made us all feel at home.

Members Welcome Back 2019

Welcome Back to Useppa – Thoughts and photos by UseppaGin – We missed you. Saturday Night was the Annual Useppa Island Club Members Welcome Back Party. Saxophone music in the old Tarpon Bar set the stage. Delicious trays of hors d’oeuvres were passed about. Conversations between old and new friends went on in every room, and on the patio beyond. Fine wines were poured, drinks were served. Food tables offered selections of fruits, cheeses, Beef Wellington appetizers, and more. It was a night of smiles, and the beginning of another season.

Veterans Day 2019

Veterans Day Weekend On Useppa – Thoughts and pictures by UseppaGin – It was a quiet Veterans Day on the island this year, a peaceful gathering of families and friends grateful for the serenity Useppa offers in a too busy world. Seasonal residents are returning, local families came by boat and relaxed by the pool. Happy Hour was a mixture of cocktails and people. Useppa welcomed everyone.

Halloween 2019

Halloween Fun – Thoughts and words by UseppaGin – The Island family gathered in the Tarpon Bar on November 1st to celebrate Halloween and the beginning of another season. Almost everyone back on Useppa stopped by and reconnected with old friends, met new neighbors, and weekend guests. The Collier staff outdid itself with a delicious buffet and prize winning costumes. The band was great. The party was just one more reason we are lucky to live on Island Time… even for a night.
