The Sanibel Historical and Village Museum has a full schedule of events coming up this season.
There will be a special exhibition, “Trees, chronologies and special memories”, with holiday decorations and timelines describing each building’s past, including interesting little-known facts. There will be a Luminary event for the community with free admission from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Additionally, the new pavilion will open in December, which will feature a timeline showing world and Sanibel events, as well as historical photographs.
“The pavilion will be a wonderful place to gather our tour groups and can serve as a venue for small group events”, said Managing Director Emilie Alfino.
Open to volunteers and donors level $ 150 and above, the following volunteer updates will take place: “The state of our village” January 10, “Our buildings have a past” February 7, and “Growing up on the bay” March 7. Each will feature well-known island icons talking about their experiences.
In addition, the following Twilight Talks are scheduled at The Community House in Sanibel: “The History of Tarpon Bay” March 15 and “God and Sanibel: the history of religion on Sanibel” April 5.
The highlight of the season is the gala film premiere on February 22 at The Community House.
