Bank of the Islands President Robbie Roepstorff is pleased to announce that the bank’s partial reopening of the Sanibel office now includes zoom connectivity for group meetings in its Sanibel Community Room.
“We have been happy to welcome island customers and community groups to our Fort Myers and Captiva offices during the months following the surge,” said Roepstorff. “Now that we can offer remote participation for groups meeting in the Sanibel office, we really feel we have good options for islanders who have not yet returned but want to stay connected with their nonprofit colleagues. It means so much to welcome back our fellow islanders to the space they’re accustomed to meet in.”
Prior to the devastation of Hurricane Ian, the Bank of the Islands’ Sanibel office at 1699 Periwinkle Way at Casa Ybel Road regularly welcomed 27 different community groups to use the Sanibel office’s meeting rooms.
The Bank of the Islands is the only bank with offices, including ATM operations, on Sanibel and Captiva. The Captiva office, located next to the Captiva Post Office at 14812 Captiva Drive, is open from 9am-2pm Monday-Friday, with a half-hour lunch closure at noon. The Bank’s Sanibel office is offering banking services from 9am-4pm Monday-Friday at 1699 Periwinkle Way at Casa Ybel Road. In addition, the Edison National Bank offices in Fort Myers at 13000 S. Cleveland Avenue and the River District office at 2105 First Street continue to welcome all of the Bank’s island customers. The bank’s meeting spaces in Fort Myers are also available to the islands’ non-profit organizations and houses of worship. All visitors are welcome to enjoy iced water, coffee, and freshly baked cookies in our bank offices.
As the oldest locally owned and managed community bank on Sanibel and Captiva, Bank of the Islands is proud to be the winner of more than 50 “Best of the Islands” awards over two decades.
