The Immokalee community enjoyed a hot summer day in the cool of the gym for a day of bingo, cornhole, lunch and just enjoying each other’s company.

The day started with an early morning walk/run through the reservation, followed by breakfast and the rest of the day’s activities. There was no holiday or event to celebrate on Aug. 19, but Immokalee Council Liaison Raymond Garza Sr. planned the event – known as “Fun Day” – to bring the community together with no real reason other than camaraderie.

“I like seeing tribal members work on their health,” Garza said before the approximately two-mile walk commenced. “We do it to keep our community coming together for fellowship. It’s good for health and the spirit.”
