The Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association held its Annual Membership meeting and elections on Tuesday, November 7th.  With now almost 4300 members strong, the PGICA voted in its slate of officers for 2018 and presented awards to some of our outstanding community contributors.  The highlight of the evening was the unveiling of the Ray Rose wing of the PGICA facility. Ray, a longtime member and civic leader, was represented by his wife Carol. Ray’s contributions to the PGICA and to Punta Gorda will be remembered by all in our community. Additionally, Craig Esterly and Dan Carey were awarded for their continued support. Over 200 members were treated to dinner and served at their tables by the current PGICA Board of Directors as a thank you to each member for making this such a wonderful and exciting year. Various bylaws were voted upon, making the PGICA governing policies stronger. A thank you to all who support the PGICA. Check our fantastic website: for new events and educational opportunities.
