Cape Coral Fire Department – Reality TV Show July 2, 2014

Mark Your Calendar    July 2, 2014   10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

Cape Coral Fire Engineers Amanda Brashear and Mark Solich were selected by Swiss producers to travel to Switzerland for their part in the “Job Swap”.

Cape Coral Fire Truck

Fire trucks draped with the American flag will be situated next to the Iwo Jima statue to provide a strong visual backdrop for the two visiting Swiss firefighters participating in a week-long job exchange with the Cape Coral Fire Department. This ceremony will be their first glimpse of Cape Coral.

It’s all part of a Swiss Reality TV Show called Job Tausch, or “Job Swap”. This will be the third season of this popular show, and Cape Coral is honored to be selected out of all the Fire Departments in the country.

On July 2, the Welcome Ceremony will include an Honor Guard, words from Mayor Marni Sawicki and Fire Chief Donald Cochran, and a Proclamation in honor of this week-long job and cultural exchange. But the most important element will be a strong show of support from the community. The show’s producers are looking for “fanfare” and we know the Cape has plenty of enthusiasm to spare.

Please join us at Eco Park, at the base of the Veteran’s Memorial Bridge, for this special ceremony. You might want to arrive a few minutes early. We will work to have things wrapped up by 11:00 a.m. or sooner.

Thank you for helping us to showcase our beautiful city!


Summer Break

Hello all,

Sorry there haven’t been any recent updates.  The kids are out of school and we have traveled and will be traveling, so this blog has been on the back-burner.  

I will get busy the next couple of days and get more info posted.

If anyone has an event they are hosting or knows of one, please send me a message and I will get it on here.

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer like I am.

What Did You Do This Weekend?

We went to the Balloons Over Paradise event in Immokalee on Saturday, but it was too windy for the balloons to take off. The one laying down is Miss Daisy.  I did not get to see her filled, but have heard she is impressive.

This was a cool shot of the sun coming up between the two balloons.

I hope they do this event again as I would have loved to see the balloons fill the air.

What to do on Spring Break????

So, now that  Lee County and Charlotte County public schools have been on Spring Break since Friday,  you might be wondering “what are you going to do with your kids” during this week????????  If you are lucky enough to have the time off with them and are staying local, check out my page on SWFL Attractions to get some ideas to keep you and your kids happy during this “together” time.   I just finished posting a bunch more places to visit, so check it out!

If you have a favorite place that you all like to visit locally, that is not listed, please share it with me so I can add it to the list.  I know I don’t have everything listed.

Please let me know what you will be doing during spring break.  Sharing can give others inspiration!!  Have a fabulous week.  (p.s.  the Collier County Fair begins Thursday, Mar 15)

Happy Leap Day!!!

Here’s that extra day that all of us need!

New Events Posted

Hi Everyone,

I hope you found something great to do this past weekend.  I took in the RV Show at Germain.  That was fun and the weather was perfect.  Had I not gotten so hungry, we would have hit the Home & Garden show inside as well.

Just got done posting a plethora of things to do in the upcoming days.  I hope that you find something to entertain yourself and/or your family and friends.  Check out the calendar for everything listed so far.  It continuously changes, so check back often.

If you know of something coming up that I haven’t posted yet, please let me know and I will try to get in on the list.

My New Blog

Hi Everyone,

So now I have 2 blogs.  My other blog, I Love A Deal , has deals that I find on products and services locally and nationally and things to do in SWFL in one blog, but when I tried to come up with a name for a website that would let everyone know what the site was about, I couldn’t combine them comfortably.  So I decided to start a second blog with just Things to do in SWFL and special happenings around Florida.

I will be posting events as I find them, so this blog will be continuously updated.  I hope you find something you like to do.  Please leave a comment if you know of something coming up that I don’t have posted or you are hosting an event.

Thanks for reading.  Hope you enjoy!
