The Hodges University Ambassadors, a community service organization comprised of students, will host a Summer Staycation Saturday, July 24, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm
at the school’s Fort Myers campus.
The event features family activities and will highlight the many options that local residents have for finding summer fun. Activities include an open car show and kids zone, as well as vendors like the Imaginarium, Swim Florida, Calusa Nature Center, ECHO, Boys and Girls Scouts, the Lee County YMCA, and more.
The event will also provide an opportunity for local residents to identify community partners for family fun and volunteer work as well.
“With the challenging economy, many families have had to sacrifice their summer vacation plans,” said Tonda Soisson-Lawson, Ambassador Chair at Hodges. “This event gives the people of our community a chance to interact with participating businesses and organizations to find new and exciting ways to vacation with their families’ right here at home as well as find volunteer opportunities to give back to the community in which they live.”
The event is free, but organizers are asking for a canned food item which will be donated to The Lee County Soup Kitchen, CCMI. For more information, or for local businesses wishing to showcase their services, contact Molly Grubbs at 239-938-7815.
