The Sanibel Historical Village on Monday held a luncheon to thank its volunteers for all they do to help the museum. More than 65 volunteers attended the event held at The Dunes.

“The village could not function without our family of volunteers,” said Executive Director Emilie Alfino. “They are highly skilled and informed about the island’s history, and they get scores of compliments from our guests. We are very lucky to have such wonderful people involved in our village.”

Volunteers celebrating anniversaries were recognized, as were new volunteers.

The historical village is currently open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Beginning in May, the village switches to summer hours, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The village is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS). Admission is $10 for adults 18 and older; those under 18 and members are free. Docent-guided tours are available at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. at no extra charge, based upon docent availability. There is handicap access to all buildings. For information, call 472-4648 during business hours or visit www.sanibelmuseum.org.
