Just about everyone has noticed the popular landmark outside Island Decor & More in Matlacha. It is a dolphin riding a wave.
According to Sue Collins, manager at Island Decor & More, "We need to have a name for our dolphin. I imagine just about everyone has seen it. Every year we have a coloring contest but this year we decided to tie the two together."
"The contest is for children 12 years old and under.," she continued. "The kids color the picture we provide of two dolphins playing with a ball and submit it for judging. We can take the submissions until Aug. 29, 2013, so be sure to bring them in as soon as possible. The winner will be chosen by Capt. Jack."
A contest is under way to name the dolphin stationed outside Island Decor &?More in Matlacha.
The winner will receive a "Back Bay" Eco Tour through the mangrove coast to see a wide variety of native birds. The tour will then go through Matlacha Pass where they will see manatee and dolphin.
The boat tour is provided by Capt. Jack on Labor Day weekend.
Pick up the picture for coloring at Island Decor & More at 4206 Pine island Road, N.W., Matlacha. You know, the place with the swimming dolphin out front!
