It’s Susan just back from a quick trip to the Dominican Republic to find that my SanibelSusan teammates did a great job holding down the fort in my absence and preparing this update! Here’s what they had to say:
It was another quiet week on Sanibel, but traffic continues to increased. There was very little rain this week and local news stations have reported record-setting temperatures with afternoon highs of 91 degrees F.
The set-up for CROW’s Taste of the Islands was going on today across the street from SanibelSusan Realty. It is Sunday November 8th at the community park from noon to 5pm.
Here are some other news items followed by the MLS activity since last week.
SCCF Oyster Restoration
SCCF is looking for volunteers to help restore healthy, productive oyster reefs in San Carlos and Tarpon Bays. Events will be held three days a week from 9 a.m. until noon.
Restoration efforts started this week & included filling buckets with fossilized shell and transporting them to Tarpon Bay boat ramp, loading buckets onto a barge and transporting them to the restoration site, and finally dumping the shell. This is physical work so come prepared with clothes that can get dirty and wet and close-toed shoes that can get wet. Work days and plans for the upcoming weeks will be sent on Fridays to those individuals who have registered at http://marinelab.sccf.org/signup/.
Veteran’s Day Ceremony
The City of Sanibel and the Lee Coast Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America will conduct its annual Veterans Day Ceremony to honor military veterans on Wednesday, November 11th. It will be held at Sanibel City Hall with military music beginning at 10:45 am and ceremony starting at 11 am.
The guest speaker is former naval aviator and Sanibel resident Ed Sieber. Sanibel’s BIG ARTS Concert Band will provide music. One of the most touching aspects of the ceremony is Remembrances, where veterans recall past military experiences. Any veteran who wished to participate is welcome to do so.
Native Plant Nursery Moving
SCCF’s Native Plant Nursery will be moving to the Bailey Homestead Preserve. On Wednesday, November 11 at 8:30 there will be a soft opening for the nursery’s new location at 1300 Periwinkle Way and to present it’s new name SCCF Native Landscapes and Garden Center.
