The Sand Paper family is committed to sharing the good news about our community. We use this space regularly to focus on all the good things happening and the many great people who make our Island a better place to live, work and play. Kudos to…
Evelyn Wicks who has guided the finances at Town Hall for 8 years. Winning multiple awards along the way, she has been a steady "guiding light” for Town staff and council.
Keith Laakkonen for his tireless work as the Town’s Environmental Sciences Coordinator, monitoring our beach environment. And congrats on being the 2014 winner of the Florida Shore & Beach Preservation Association Environmental Award.
All beachfront property owners, renters and visitors who are mindful of protecting our nesting turtle population and turn off lights or use special lights, remove furniture and don’t leave holes on the beach. We’re still in peak hatching season-let’s make our beach safe for turtles!
American Legion Post 274 and Estero Island Medical Care for organizing a Veterans Health Fair last month, gathering a variety of health care providers in one spot to screen veterans for health issues.
Soccer coaches, players, officials and parents as the season gets off to a big start.
Organizers, sponsors and participants in both Spirit of ’45 celebration events held last month to mark the end of WWII. The solemn pageantry and heartfelt gratitude shown at these events are much appreciated by our WWII veterans.
Teen Challenge International, those folks who wash cars at Beach Baptist on Fridays and Saturdays, on the opening of their new Thrift Store on San Carlos Blvd. This non-profit offers life-changing faith-based recovery programs for both men and women of all ages.
Bibliophile Shirley Semmer for her donation of a sizeable collection of books, many first edition or signed, to the Beach Lions Club to support their charitable efforts.
