In 1980, this island was an unpainted historic village (yet to be discovered) with railroad tracks through the middle and plenty of jungle.
To the Editor:As a member of the Boca Grande Garden Club, I have listened to countless speakers rave about the beauty of this unique island.
To the Editor:We want to thank all of our customers who helped us to raise $3,290 for the Sgt. Mike Wilson Fund. A portion of the proceeds from each service call was put into the fund, and we thank all who donated.

I wanted to compliment Mr. Short on his terrific article in the recent Gasparilla Magazine about the Boca Grande organizations which provide scholarship funds for island students. I thought it was a clever idea for the nice people of Boca who support Boca Bargins, the spaghetti dinners and all the chamber events to see what these fundraisers really accomplish. Space permitted only a few students highlighted, but we know there are many monetary gifts given to alot of young people with dreams. Thank you for letting folks know these scholarship events are truly making a great impact and the young people are sincerely grateful. Boca Grande is a place of community heart with love and respect. What a great island to grow up on. Thank you!

To the Editor,
We are responding to the letter published in the Oct. 25 Beacon from Mr Len Tatko concerning potential solutions to parking issues in town. He concludes his letter with the statement that “Boca Grande wants to look like 2013.”
