The Sanibel Historical Village has announced that Sanibel Captiva Community Bank will be a silver sponsor of its fundraiser Gala Movie Premiere on Feb. 22, when it will show the documentary “Secrets & Stories of the Sanibel Lighthouse.”
“’Community’ isn’t just part of the bank’s name, it’s a commitment that shows in everything they do,” said Historical Village Executive Director Emilie Alfino. “The bank has supported so many community organizations and has been a sponsor of our fundraisers for many years. It’s island businesses like this one that make Sanibel what it is – and that help us preserve, share, and celebrate Sanibel’s rich history.”
Anyone interested in a business or individual sponsorship can call Alfino at (239) 472-4648 or (239) 357-1644. “As we all know, it really does take a village – and it takes community-minded businesses and individuals to help keep our village, the keeper of history, alive on Sanibel,” Alfino said.
The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. In accordance with the city of Sanibel’s regulations, masks are required inside the buildings at this time. Full guided tours will resume in January after a hiatus due to COVID. They will take place at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. and advance reservations are not required. There is no additional fee for these tours.
The Sanibel Historical Village is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS) and there is handicap access. Admission is $10 for adults over 18. Members and children are free. The village has handicap access to all but one building, the tiny Post Office. For more information, call (239) 472-4648 during museum hours or visit http://www.sanibelmuseum.org.
