In a recent article for Laker/Lutz News, our sister publication from Florida, staff journalist B.C. Manion reports on the effect Hurricane Ian had on the area. Local officials originally estimated greater damage to the The Laker/Lutz News coverage area, however Hurricane Ian veered south towards Fort Myers. Local officials and charities have galvanized to assist the the communities of Fort Myers, Sanibel, Cape Coral.
Writes Manion: Chris Casella, district governor election for Rotary District 6950, shared the group’s efforts, via an email to The Laker/Lutz News. “As of this morning, every club president has received their flyers and directions for the Supply Drive. We encourage everyone to share the flyer to your social media and/or media outlets,” he said, in an Oct. 1 email. Rotary District 6950 is collecting monetary donations and donations of items for those affected by Hurricane Ian. Visit Rotary6950.org/IanRelief for more information and to donate.
