In a special ceremony to be held on September 28, 2023, the new Times Square Clock will be officially dedicated.
This dedication will be approximately 30 minutes after the end of the Town’s remembrance ceremony. (That ceremony will be held at Bayside Park at 9 a.m. The agenda for that event is attached.)
The clock was installed on September 14, and the base and surrounding area are receiving some finishing touches between now and September 28. The clock will remain covered until the dedication ceremony that will feature a ribbon cutting led by Town officials and the clock’s donors.
“The new clock was donated to the Town by George and Linda Merschman after Ian washed the old clock away,” said Town Manager Andy Hyatt. “The previous Times Square clock was an icon for residents and visitors alike on Fort Myers Beach for years. The Town is especially grateful to the Merschman’s for restoring a new version of this much-loved clock to Times Square.”
Verdin, a company in Cincinnati, Ohio, built the original clock and also built the new clock.
