FORT MYERS, Fla. (October 3, 2011) – Shell Point Retirement Community resident, Frankie Rad, was featured on the cover of the bi-annual Seniors Blue Book for Southwest Florida. The current publication, which covers September 2011 through to February 2012, offers great stories and information to seniors looking for housing and resources in Lee and Collier Counties.

Rad, who is 92 years young and has lived at Shell Point for 18 years, is just one of the more than 2,000 very active individuals at Shell Point. She is an amazing wife and mother, and for decades always hoped that she would one day learn how to fly. The article in the current Senior Blue book goes into great detail on how she worked towards and accomplished her dream of flying.
