SCCF's Honoring the Past - Protecting the Future Campaign has four components:
Sanibel Island is pronounced san-a-bell by most residents and visitors. Some Island pioneers call her "san-a-bull". Often Sanibel's name is mispronounced and misspelled.
Regardless of how you spell it: Sanebel, Sanibell, Sanabel, or Sanbiel, SANIBEL ISLAND is a wonderfull place to live, work, visit, vacation, or retire.
Leave your snow shovel at home. Sanibel's forecast: NO SNOW... EVER!
Okay this may be a stretch of the truth. The last officially recorded show in our area occurred in 1899 with snow reported as far south as Fort Myers on the West Coast and Fort Pierce on the East Coast of Florida. In 2002 a record cold snap produced snow flurries in the Miami area but not here on the West Coast.
Centrally located on Periwinkle Way, F.I.S.H. accepts donations of food and many other items which can be used by island families in need.
Please help us spread the good news! Sanibel and Captiva Islands continue to remain unspoiled and in top condition. Last week NOAA released reports that the oil from the BP Deep Horizon spill is not projected to come near Sanibel and Captiva Islands! According to NOAA's latest reports, there is less than a one percent chance of any oil reaching our island beaches.
