Cape Coral Kiwanis Hall & Cape Coral YMCA to open

By Staff | Oct 13, 2011

The Cape Coral Kiwanis Foundation will host an official ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Cape Coral Kiwanis Hall and YMCA facility at 360 Santa Barbara Blvd. on Oct. 18 at 7 p.m.

The ceremony will be led by Samuel Huber, president of the Cape Coral Kiwanis Foundation, James Sanger, CEO of the Lee County YMCA and Governor Eddie Lee of The Florida District of Kiwanis. Lee, whose term began Oct. 1, supervises the 9,000 Kiwanis members and 18,000 high school Key Club members in the state of Florida and the Cayman Islands. Before the ribbon cutting Lee will visit with other clubs in the area.

“Our Kiwanis club is excited to step up to bring the YMCA to Cape Coral at a time when other community programs are being cut,” said Huber, “We will no longer be the largest city in Florida without a YMCA.”

The Cape Coral Kiwanis Club is looking for more service-minded individuals and business professionals who would like to make a direct impact on the community through volunteering. Meetings are held every Tuesday.
