When I first visited my great-uncle and aunt Crowninshield as a child, Gilchirst Avenue was the beautiful center of the town of Boca Grande. My family have been residents here for three generations, so memories go back to the pre-bridge and therefore pre-car and parking years.

By all accounts, the Boca Grande Art Alliance’s Whodunit 2013 fundraiser was a roaring success. More than 200 people attended the event on Saturday, Feb. 16. Everyone seemed to have a fun time and many went home with fabulous original pieces by local artists.

BY JACK SHORT - Wyatt Locke, 17-year-old singer, artist, composer and performer, will showcase some of his many talents in the Royal Palm Players’ upcoming production of “Godspell,” and he says the experience has been a humbling challenge.

The Boca Grande community came out for the purple-lemonade stand located just outside The Palm on Park. The stand was up this past Saturday to raise money and awareness for Sanfilippo syndrome. Grey Chapin, whose older sister Blair was born with the genetic disorder, and friends offered glasses of purple lemonade and plenty of smiles as they raised close to $1500 for the Sanfilippo Research Foundation. For more information on how you can help go to facebook.com/purplelemonadestand or to theblairbanner.org.
