The Fort Myers Beach Community Foundation took to the beaches on New Year’s Day for its annual clean-up. Members walked the beach and gathered discarded items ranging in size from cigarette butts and soda can tabs to a pop-up tent.

The next event for the foundation will be a virtual fashion show and auction on Feb. 13, complete with the one-of-a-kind gift baskets the event has become known for. 

The next membership meeting will be held on Jan. 13th at 6:15 p.m., both in person and via Zoom. For more information about joining, email FMBCFCommunications@gmail.com.
