Christmas Party December 18
A spirited Christmas Holiday party took place on December 18, 2018 at President Bill McDaniel's home on Redhawk Lane. All had a good time socializing outside of business meetings. The house was festive, and the snacks provided by everyone, were great. We are a small neighborhood who like to keep to ourselves, so this is always a special occasion to gather together in a different atmosphere. Thanks to the president for hosting us every year. This was the ninth year he has done so.
CINA Meeting in April
A meeting took place Tuesday, April 16, 2019 at the Corkscrew Sanctuary.

All members are invited to attend via e-mail notices. It is hosted at the President's home.
Bill, who is also Commissioner of our District gave a detailed report on what's happening around Collier County, which is always a highlight of our meetings. See the Meeting page for details.
Honoring Brother John
John Hinson, pastor of the Church on Immokalee Road, was honored Tuesday, April 30, for his many years of service on the Board of Directors of CINA. As a founding member of our Corkscrew Island Neighborhood Association, he has given serious consideration to all projects undertaken in the neighborhood, and has offered and contributed intelligent ideas over the years.
Below, President Bill McDaniel presents Bro. John with a plaque during dinner in the Church's dining room. Bro. John is 93 years old and beloved by all of the members of this unusual community which has been together for more than 30 years. He is credited with helping many people during their times of difficulty. Seated in the background is Eduardo Tabraue, also an ordained pastor.
CINA may be a small community but there are some talented, wise and honorable people amongst us, most of whom are unseen and unrecognized. Blessings to all behind the scenes!
