May 7 FOCCL Volunteer Appreciation Event

The Friends of the Cape Coral Library Board of Directors held a luncheon to say thank you to all the members who have volunteered for our organization throughout the year. It was held in Cape Coral's Gulf Coast Village auditorium/dining room. GCV served a delicious buffet, and everyone had a great time.

March 23,2024 Annual Meeting

We enjoyed another meeting with excellent turnout. (42 members in addition to 5 guests, who signed up as new members at the meeting, were in attendance.) Guest Speaker Brittnay Laster, Education & Outreach Coordinator for CROW, gave an enthusiastic presentation including slides with photos of local wildlife and answered our many questions.

Our Booths at the Festivals This Year Were Busier Than Ever!

FOCCL had booths again at each of the annual events. Our wonderful members plus student volunteers from FGCU had paper and art supplies ready for kids to create their entries to the 18th Annual Children’s Environmental Art Contest. Printed materials about the endangered Smalltooth Sawfish were on hand for the young artists to browse through for inspiration. (The many parents who visited our tables not only learned about this precious species but also about our organization.)

Jan. 20, 2024 General Meeting  

We had an excellent turnout of members and guests (over 45 people) who came to get the latest news about FOCCL activities and to hear guest speakers from Captains for Clean Water. In their presentation, Dianna Ryan and Bob Beville shared information about the organization, their history, importance of clean water to the state in general and southwest Florida in particular, and how they are addressing water issues with an eye on the future. Just a few of their many slides are shown here.
