Starting with the Pelham Split Rock Golf Courses, the Bartow Pell Mansion Museum, Orchard Beach, the Horseback riding stables and Turtle Cove and proceeding on to brunch at the Seashore, a visit to the City Island Nautical Museum, a casual stroll around the "village" shops with a treat at Bistro SK, and a trolley tour of City Island Avenue.

The day continued with a boat ride on the Island Current and culminated with a lively cocktail reception at the Samuel Pell House with Chamber members, featuring wines from JGL Liquors and party platters from the IGA. The group toasted Maria Caruso, Chamber of Commerce Director of Tourism for her wonderful work

Chamber President Skip Giacco declared it a great success saying "It is events like this that add to the City Island BUZZ". Skip went on to say that "This is the second concierge tour that the Chamber has created and we are planning a third for the close of the season."
