PGICA Members...

We are happy to report that regularly scheduled activities resumed PGICA on Thursday, September 14. Our grounds are in good shape and the facility fully functional. You may want to check with your individual clubs to see what their plans might be. In the meantime, the office if you need ice or a place to charge your cellphones.

One of our members has suggested that we offer to be a "lost & found" resource and we think that is a great idea. If you find valued items floating in canals or on lawns, etc., and you don't know who the owners are, bring the items here or call to let us know what you found. Owners can call to find out if their missing items have been discovered.

Thanks to all of you for reaching out to those in need.

Cancellation Notice

Bayfront Health Port Charlotte Event
VIP Event Scheduled for Septemter 27th

In our September edition of The Commentator, there appeared a flyer from Bayfront Health Port Charlotte advertising an event that now is cancelled. They asked that we issue the following cancellation notice: "As we continue to focus our efforts on our patients and by supporting our staff, physicians and local community that are still impacted by loss of power and other life safety issues, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the VIP event scheduled for September 27. We will be rescheduling soon however and will make sure you are once again included on our exclusive invite list."
