After holding its first meeting in December, the Port Theatre Foundation has welcomed its latest member and the board is already solidifying plans for the future.

The founding members, who include Jimbo Collins, Dolores Windolf, Anna Duren and Phillip Croton, have welcomed Tom Goldsmith to the board of directors.

Goldsmith, Port St. Joe High School Class of 1987, will join the discussions that will ultimately lead to the historic Port Theatre building becoming a central location for movies, live theatre, weddings and graduation ceremonies.

Goldsmith worked at the St. Joe Paper Mill and Raffield Fisheries and spent seven years as a telecom technician in the U.S. military, serving in Saudi Arabia and Iraq during Operation Desert Storm and the Gulf War.

Upon returning to Port St. Joe, Goldsmith opened Beachy Keen custom framing and gallery on Reid Avenue next to the Port Theatre.

Also a photographer, Goldsmith will soon open a portrait studio.

"I couldn't think of a more beautiful and diverse location to live and be able to shoot my pictures," said Goldsmith.  "We are thrilled to have something happening with the theatre and look forward to being involved with its community endeavors."
