Fifth-graders gathered around their school’s dolphin mascot in Beach School’s courtyard Wednesday morning to thank the Fort Myers Beach Kiwanis Club for their donation of $5,000 to the Beach School PTO. On hand to accept the donation from Kiwanis President Tom Swanbeck was PTO Co-President Kim West who explained that half of it would be used for the 5th grade end of year field trip and half for the school’s general field trip fund. The donation continues a long tradition of the Beach Kiwanis Club supporting Beach School activities. Since their founding in 1968, the club has donated over $1.5 million to the community.
