Beautiful Night of History on the Beach

IMG_2083.jpegMonday evening, January 11th, the Captiva Island Historical Society aired two of our acclaimed documentaries - “Sands of Time” and “Earth, Water and IMG_2412.jpegWind” - on the beach at ’Tween Waters Inn.

The program was sponsored and hosted by ‘Tween Waters Inn. Thanks to the generosity of Tony Lapi, a CIHS Board member, who is President and CEO of Rochester Resorts; whose holdings include Captiva’s historic ‘Tween Waters IMG_2410.jpegInn, the CIHS was given access to the beachfront and facilities for this outdoor documentary showing.

It was a beautiful night on the beach and the audience of some 50 people enjoyed the mild beach conditions and were entertained and engaged in learning more about Captiva history, while wearing masks and socially distancing.

In addition to thanking 'Tween Waters Inn for their generosity in hosting the program, the CIHS wishes to thank the Captiva Island Yacht Club for the use of their parking lot.tween waters copy.jpg
