Two Fort Myers Beach businesses were recognized by Keep Lee County Beautiful for their volunteer efforts to keep Fort Myers Beach beautiful, especially after Hurricane Ian on September 28th.
At the 1st annual Keep Lee County Beautiful Environmental Stewardship Awards, held at the Riverside Community Center in Fort Myers, Tunaskin and Mid-Island Water Sports took home the trophies in the respective categories.
Tunaskin took home the Community Partner award for its 8 years of the Beach Keepers Club clean up on Fort Myers Beach. Mid-Island Water Sports took home Hurricane Recovery Champion Award for pivoting their business, which was completely lost when Hurricane Ian came through, to helping clean the beach every day after the storm.
