The stalwart volunteers who work with God’s Table and CCMI at Chapel by the Sea to provide sustenance and services for those in need on our island, week in and week out.
Boy Scout Javier Ramirez on attaining Eagle Scout rank and to the Beach Kiwanis for their support of Javier in his efforts.

The Fort Myers Beach Chamber of Commerce for hosting a Business Expo bringing local businesses together to showcase their products and services.
Fish Tale Marina for hosting a National Marina Day celebration encouraging Islanders to enjoy boating and get out on the water! Also for keeping attention on the shoaling and navigation problems in Big Carlos Pass and coordinating community meetings to share information.

All the candidates who have qualified to run for local office and are willing to devote their time and energy to representing Island residents.
Participants in a Strategic Planning Session held in June for Town Council and advisory board members along with Town staff and interested residents. The all-day session focused on the town’s strengths and weaknesses and the development of vision and mission statements plus goals. It’s always a good idea to step back and look at the big picture every once in a while.
The Public Safety Committee for their continued focus on ways to keep residents and visitors safe on our island. A new flashing crosswalk beacon has been installed at Bay Beach Lane and their lightning detector suggestion will be getting some attention following the lightning death on our beach recently.
