1. ‘Coloring with the Cops’

In an endeavor to make additional or new community connections, the Marco Island Police Department will begin to hold family-friendly events called “Coloring with the Cops,” where it will provide an opportunity for families with school-age children to interact with the department. 

The events will be held at the police station and feature police vehicle tours, kids activities, cookies and an opportunity to interact with officers. 

“Coloring with the Cops” will be from 1 until 2 p.m., Aug. 10.

3. ‘Building A Dream’

Entitled “Building A Dream,” the exhibit is the 25 year history of the Marco Island Historical Society.

The exhibit will be on display from now through Sept. 26, in the museum’s Sandlin Gallery thanks, in part, to a generous grant from the Island Country Club Charitable Foundation.

The exhibit tells the story of what began as a small-but-passionate friends’ group ultimately resulted in the construction of an award-winning institution now staffed by a team of career professionals. This exhibit celebrates the 25th anniversary of the MIHS by looking back at its history, exploring not only how the organization’s role has changed since its establishment, but also asking the visitor where it goes from here.

The museum is located at 180 South Heathwood Drive, Marco Island.
