Hello, North Fort Myers.

It’s so good to be able to give you the latest. There is a lot doing and a lot coming up:

— Ellsworth Heating & Cooling has presented three free AC units as part of its 18th annual Christmas in July giveaway. The winners are the Amerman family, which received a Traine system; the Marquis family, which received a Lennox system; and the Spencer family, which received an Airtemp system. The value of the new AC units is about $16,000 each.

— The Civic Association met and placed Melvin Scroggins in the vacant Board seat.

— Civic has decided to host a Drag Queen Bingo on Sept. 25 at Victory Lane on Hancock Bridge Parkway. (See NFMcivic.com for more details as things develop.)
