We at the Island Sand Paper believe it’s always a good idea to share good news. We use this space every couple months to focus on all the good things happening in our community and the many people who make our island a better place to live, work and play. Kudos go out to…
Fort Myers Beach Soccer Under 18 Teams for winning both 1st and 2nd place in the County Cup!
The Town of Fort Myers Beach, the Marine Resource Task Force, Fish Tale Marina and local businesses for supporting the Dolphin/Gator Alliance, a unique program bringing Island Coast High School and Beach Elementary students together to learn about water quality.
Thomas Bartel on being awarded the Pilgrim Degree by the Loyal Order of the Moose, for his many years of above the call of duty service and philanthropy.
The organizers and volunteers of the Fort Myers Beach marathon and Beach Survival races that brought runners from all over the country to our island for a great weekend of running.
The Rotary Club of Sanibel-Captiva for their recent gift of a dictionary to each 3rd grader at Beach Elementary School.
Beach Chamber of Commerce for another successful Pirate Festival. The family-friendly emphasis is appreciated by residents and visitors alike.
Surfers for Autism who brought a fun event for families to Crescent Beach Family Park for the 3rd year. Volunteers introduce kids with autism to the basics of surfing in a relaxed environment.
Volunteers and the Marine Resource Task Force who planted beach plants as part of the Beachscape program, designed to reduce erosion and create dunes.
Rick Sebastian on his retirement from the role of Town receptionist. Often the first voice or the first face residents encountered in dealing with the town, he offered a friendly greeting to everyone and will be missed.
Manhattan Construction and the Beach Library for their Sand Dollar award for public building design from the Collier Building Industry Association.
Members of the Estero Island Historic Society for bringing interesting speakers to their public meetings each season. They also staff the Historic Cottage museum and have recently unveiled their "Footprints in Time” QR code Historic Tour, offering residents and visitors a glimpse into the past.
