President’s Update ~ Chris Pendleton, President & CEO

Posted by Edison Ford Winter Estates On October 3rd

marina chris     As a great addition to the activities at Edison Ford, The Marina at Edison Ford has had a full month of celebration. The M/V Edison Explorer, the 48 passenger river cruiser was christened recently with champagne, flowers, ferns, and good wishes by dignitaries including Fort Myers Mayor Pro Temp Johnny Streets.

The M/V Edison Explorer already has a great following of dolphins as it heads up river daily toward the manatee areas and bird rookeries. The river excursion project is a collaboration between Pure Fort Myers (owned by Lance and Harry Julian), Pinchers, The Marina at Edison Ford, and the Edison & Ford Winter Estates. Daily daytime cruises are supplemented on Friday and Saturday evenings with gorgeous sunset cruises. In season, nighttime sunset cruises will be offered regularly. For information on tickets or group packages, call Edison Ford or stop by The Marina at Edison Ford.

This month, the Marina activities have included an Official Ribbon Cutting for Pure Fort Myers on October 2nd, with the Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce and City leaders and an official Grand Opening on October 4th. In celebration for the opening, Pinchers and the Marina also held the first Fort Myers Craft Beer Fest with 75 craft beers, great food and music.

It seems hard to believe but we are already meeting with this year’s design team planning Holiday Nights. It will be an exciting December with more areas open on the site as well as access to The Marina at Edison Ford for nighttime cruising, dinner and beverages. We are very grateful for decorating teams listed below.
