The feature-length film includes vintage home movie clips from the 1930s through the early 1960s, and shows Sanibel the way it was before the causeway opened in 1963.
This is the third Sanibel documentary sponsored by Pfeifer Realty Group designed to support island non-profits. Previous films “Growing Up on Sanibel” and “Seven Sanibel Artists” generated more than $25,000 in community support donations. Pfeifer Realty Group has designated the Community House as the only recipient of this film’s proceeds, because movie clips like these were often shown at the Community House on Sanibel before the Causeway.
Since 2015, Children's Education Center of the Islands has hosted this fabulous outdoor Pig Roast on their Campus.
Attendees enjoy 2 pigs roasted by the pre-school parents, lots of great side dishes to go with roasted pork.
All proceeds of this event go towards funding scholarships for working parents, and also help defray the cost to maintain the 5 acres of this Sanibel pre-school campus.
The Sanibel Captiva Optimist Club's Annual Road Rally is an island tradition that provides good old fashioned fun for everyone. The first Road Rally was in 1979, making this event the longest running 4th of July celebration on the islands.
Right after the 4th of July parade finishes, road rally team cars begin gather in the Timbers parking lot for this unconventional scavenger hunt.
Did you know that on the third Saturday in June you can tour the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village free of charge? In fact more than 350 people came to the Village during the Free Admission Day in 2016 with a line that stretched from Shore Haven's front door to the parking lot.
