It’s only July, but Islanders will soon be thinking of 2017 due to a very special 2017 Calendar. A Firefighters Calendar is in production and will feature a number of the Fort Myers Beach’s own firefighters!
A few months ago, Firefighter Rob Ponte came up with the idea and is now coordinating it. With local businesses sponsoring the effort, all proceeds will benefit the Beach Kids Foundation, a local non-profit devoted to helping Island children and families.
“Our Fire District has a 60-year history of being involved in our community; from the Chief to firefighters, we are all devoted to serving this community,” said Division Chief Fire Marshal Ron Martin. “We are extremely proud of our firefighters making this effort to help local kids.”
The calendar is in production now and is expected to be available in September. Stay tuned for where you can pick up your own Firefighter Calendar!
