Commissioners ok PSJRA move

Boyer said the committee had raised more than $26,000 in cash and in-kind donations for the event.

“We would not be where we are without these in-kind contributions,” Boyer said.

She said there was a possibility of another major sponsor and her numbers did not include profit from the sale of commemorative coins.

“The coins sales have gone well,” Magidson said. “We have covered the cost of the coins and whatever more we make will go to the event.”

After the event, the committee will publish an 80-page softcover book of historic and celebration photos.

“Whatever we spent money on (such as the timeline) it wasn’t for a one-shot deal,” Boyer said. “We wanted to be able to use it year after year.”

Boyer also urged those joining the celebration to visit one of two Facebook pages. The Centennial Celebration has a page and there is another page titled, “If you grew up in Port St. Joe, you remember…” which includes recollections from current and former residents.
