Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum featured at FISH Virtual Friendly Faces Luncheon

All islanders, friends and family are invited to the community-wide FISH OF SANCAP Virtual Friendly Faces Luncheon, scheduled for Tues., Mar. 8 beginning at noon via Zoom.  Lunch, prepared by George & Wendy’s, consists of a cold entree, side, water bottle and dessert.  The cost of the luncheon is waived and complimentary to all participants.  FISH volunteers will deliver meals to islanders beginning at 11:30am. 

Guest speaker Sam Ankerson, Executive Director at the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum, will provide an overview of the Museum’s 2020 new addition, Beyond Shells, a living gallery of aquariums and exhibiting over 50 species of marine life. He’ll also describe new exhibits, educational programs, and events in 2022. 

“Known as one of the ‘best’ things to do on Sanibel, the Shell Museum provides educationally fun activities to guests,” says Erika Broyles, Senior Services Director, FISH. “We are so lucky to have the museum as part of our community; it’s the only museum in the US devoted solely to shells and mollusks.”

The FISH Friendly Faces luncheon is a great way to catch up with friends, make new connections and learn about exciting offerings in the area.  Reservations and meal choices are required by Fri., Mar. 4 to the FISH Walk-In-Center, 239-472-4775.  Once registered, FISH will provide an emailed link and meeting ID number for access.
