The commemorative centennial coin which was produced to raise funds for the upcoming celebration officially went on sale last week.

The token is available for sale at Portside Trading Company, The No Name Café, Cadence Bank, Joseph’s Cottage and City Hall. The cost is $15 and the coin comes with a velvet bag for storage.

Clarence Monette is coordinating the details of a time capsule that will soon be under construction at the Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School. The capsule will then be filled with mementos created by local students or donated by businesses and buried in the City Commons on July first.

Monette has also been organizing a basketball game to take place at the Washington Gym that will feature athletes of note from the past and present.

Not to be left out, Magidson has prepared several speeches about Port St. Joe. He will speak at several of the events throughout the celebration.

The Centennial Celebration will culminate on Thursday, July 4 with the annual fireworks display, closing out the festivities with a bang.

A website for the week-long was created by Rick Lamberson at the Bluewater iNet Group and features a schedule of the events, historic photos and a list of the centennial celebration sponsors. For more information on how to get involved or donate funds, visit
