Despite the fact that Fort Myers Beach canceled its fireworks and downtown celebration, plenty of people still came out to celebrate the new year.
An organization called Keep Lee County Beautiful traditionally hosts a cleanup on Jan. 1 every year, but not in 2021.
The group said it’s because the New Year’s Eve festivities were canceled, and it’s harder to get volunteers to help out on the holidays. That’s why the organization planned a cleanup for next weekend instead.
If you plan to come out and enjoy the beach on New Year’s Day, Keep Lee County Beautiful wants to remind you to pick up after yourself.
