The kids at the Boca Grande United Methodist Church had a food drive recently and collected more than 500 non-perishable items! Way to go to Taylor Edwards, Jordan Caron, and Effie Joiner (below), as well as Flynn Stewart, Sammy and Wyatt Steyer and Liam Hugger (above)!
The Lee County Library System held their most recent bookmark winner awards. The grand-prize winner was Karoline Bellamy, a fifth grader at The Island School.

In honor of Halloween, the “normal” writers took a break to bring you this one-of-a-kind profile on one of our favorite All Soul’s Eve characters, Jack Skellington. This perspective was written by none other than Skellington himself, exclusively for the Boca Beacon. Jack and his wife, Sally, are now full-time Boca Grande residents after his 2011 retirement.
Over at the Banyan Tree Pilates & Yoga Studio on E. Railroad Avenue, the “Little Sprouts” class has been learning all about yoga. Above, the kids learned about stretching. At right, yogi Emma McGill in the swan position and at the bottom the group took a lesson from instructor Maggie Dill.
At The Island School, Boca Grande firefighters paid the kids a visit to discuss fire safety. Dafne Garcia was impressed to meet one of the guys in full gear. Park Service representative Thelma Proctor also came to the school to discuss our need for clean water.
Thought our readers might like this bit of Halloween decor from the meat case at Hudson’s Grocery. Happy Halloween!
