TCH’s Summer Salutations event to offer up food, drinks and fun

The Community House will kick off a new summer series of events for island residents and visitors.

Taking place monthly through August, the first Summer Salutations will be held on May 16 from 3 to 5 p.m. at TCH on Sanibel. Free and open to the community, the events will feature food, drinks and fun.

“We did something similar last year called Lobby Libations. It seemed to be really popular among island residents,” Director of Operations Kyle Wilson said, adding that visitors also stopped by.

She explained that they went with “salutations” this summer as it means to greet or welcome others.

“This will be an opportunity to greet and meet neighbors, friends and visitors,” Wilson said. “So just to check in on each other — and a chance to share stories.”

The theme for the May event will be “Good Vibrations.”

“There’ll be music,” she said.

There will also be a postcard writing station, which will be available at each of the monthly events.

“We have a specialty postcard that was designed by Melissa Gindling at The Island Octopus. It’s brightly colored and features the lighthouse, sunset, a roseate spoonbill,” Wilson said. “They can write postcards to, say, friends, neighbors, family.”

“A chance to send those good vibrations out into the world and let people know we’re still here,” she added.

TCH will mail out the postcards for those who choose to participate.

“There’ll be light food fare and beverages,” Wilson said.

The offerings will include water and soda, along with beer and wine.

TCH will provide the food for the first event.

Island residents and visitors are invited to swing by and enjoy the camaraderie.

“It allows them a chance to stop in and say hello,” she said. “We are the gathering spot.”

“It might be an opportunity also to see the compete restoration,” Wilson added, noting that there is tape in the Founders Room marking the waterline from Hurricane Ian, which will be memorialized later.
