The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village reported that a program about the history of Periwinkle Park from one of last year’s Twilight Talks is now available on its Website for public viewing.

“We hope many people, particularly those who live in Periwinkle Park, will take advantage of this opportunity to watch this interesting program about the park’s history,” Executive Director Emilie Alfino said.

To access the video, visit www.sanibelmuseum.org, click on “News” and then “Twilight Talks; the video, marked April 2019, is the first one on the left. Other Twilight Talks are also available.

The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village has two more Twilight Talks scheduled this season.

On March 11, attendees will hear from people “Locally Homegrown on Sanibel.” Sanibel children of the 1950s will join the Rushworth family and friends and hear from patriarch Jack Rushworth about growing up on Sanibel in the “old days.”

On April 7, attendees will hear “Fish (& Fishy!) Stories of Sanibel,” remembering somewhat true stories of Sanibel that many would like to forget. (Names may be changed to protect the alleged suspects and characters!) Ty Symroski, whose family started coming to Sanibel more than 100 years ago – and has three buildings in the historical village – has fun, funny, serious and dubious stories to tell about people from “back in the day.”

Both talks will be held at 7 p.m. at The Community House on Sanibel.

Tickets are $10 each.
