John Dauster, President
Here’s an interesting way you can stay connected as our snow birds “fly” north and our intrepid RV’s head for parts unexplored. I would like you to send a picture of you holding a PGICA license plate in front of a sign showing your furthest distance from PGICA. Each month we will award a PGICA memento to the member who submits the winning picture. Get your cameras ready and pack that PGICA license plate. We’ll be looking forward to seeing our travelers show their PGICA connection.

2013 PGICA Recognition Committee
The Board of Directors of the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the 2013 Recognition Program. As part of its fiftieth anniversary celebration, the PGICA recognized twenty seven current or former residents of the Isles community for “having made a difference”. Engraved bricks honoring those recognized have been set in a garden at the southeast corner of the PGICA Center.
Whether it be the County, the City, or any one of the numerous charitable or service organizations in the area; volunteerism is the catalyst for their success. The Recognition Program established by the PGICA honors those who have given back. “To enhance the quality of life in Punta Gorda Isles as a leading waterfront community” is the mission statement of the PGICA and the basis for the PGICA Program.
All nominees, living or deceased, must currently be or formerly have been a resident of Punta Gorda Isles.
An applicant will be evaluated on their volunteerism, the importance of their contribution to the community, the long-term impact of their contribution and a set of intangible criteria determined by the individual members of the selection committee.
Since there are so many aspects to our community that impact PGI; contributions to PGICA, the City of Punta Gorda, and Charlotte County will all be considered.
Nomination forms for the 2013 Recognition Program are available in the PGICA Office, or on the association’s website. The use of these forms is not required but is encouraged. All information required by the committee is listed on this form. Nominations must be received by October 4, 2013.
