  • In regard to Michael Welly - there have been very few people that have become more of a friend to Longboat Key than Michael. His demeanor was always smooth, responsive, appreciative, supportive and completely in touch with our community. He was and is a visionary and he created and worked his vision so well for Longboat Key and the Key Club. Unfortunately dark forces prevented his vision from prevailing in the end, much to the disappointment of our community. But this was not the result of his personal commitment and leadership skills.

    Michael never lost sight of his goals for the Club and put his substantial power into moving his vision forward. He enlisted some of the Key's strongest personalities to assist and inspired many of our citizens to support his efforts to improve the Club and as a by-product our entire community.

    Lynn and he became community regulars and knew many of our islanders personally. He seemed to have time for everyone and still work on the success of his vision and to manage the Club with the help of a superb and empowered staff.

    His personality and people skills worked wonders on the Club staff and Club members. Every member group dustup that occurred ultimately had a good outcome for all of the participants.

    We are all glad that Michael decided to come to Longboat Key. He has certainly left the Club and this community much better off than when he arrived here.

    Michael will be sorely missed, but he will always be remembered by the Community and honored for all that he did to support Longboat Key.
