To the Editor:
Thank you for all your support for the Florida Atlantic University Surf Team. We hope you are cognizant of the fact that every dollar was a tremendous help and we were not able to surf our nationals contest at Salt Creek, Calif. without you.
Although we sold our family home on Tarpon Avenue years ago, we have enjoyed vacationing on the island frequently since. Our last visit, however, turned into a nightmare.
BY MARCY SHORTUSE - At the Wildlife Center of Venice, there is no such thing as a typical day. You’ll never know what you’ll find when you come in, or what might happen. One thing is certain, though, help is needed.
To the Editor:
The June 7 issue of the Beacon detailed the GICIA’s extensive and expensive two block beautification of the bike path through the commercial district.
As most of you know I have been involved with the local art scene in Boca Grande for most of my adult life. I have been a member of the Boca Grande Art Alliance since its beginning and was even president for a year, teaching classes and exhibiting my work at the center. I am incredibly grateful for the support that I am shown by this community and I never take it for granted. The island has supported my artistic efforts throughout my life and I am proud to say that at least three generations of islanders collect my hand-colored etchings and acrylic paintings.
