In the current economic environment, small cities can no longer fund these types of events with taxpayer money, and businesses find it difficult to participate as much as they would like to. Community spirit and pride will allow us to celebrate this onetime event with the classic small town spirit and pride we have become known for. Different fundraising activities are being planned, and donations/sponsorships are being solicited from the business community and private citizens.
Small donations from private citizens are crucial to an event such as this. Checks should be made payable to the Port St. Joe Centennial Celebration, and can be delivered to City Hall, or mailed to P.O. Box 278,
Port St. Joe, Fl 32457. Any amount donated will be greatly appreciated.
On July 1, 2013, Port St. Joe will celebrate its 100th birthday and a celebration worthy of a centennial year is being planned.
In October 2012 Mayor Mel Magidson appointed a committee that includes representatives of the Chamber of Commerce, Tourist Development Council, Historical Society, business community, and private citizens to begin planning this event.
The last weekend in June was chosen as the kick-off date. Activities are in the planning stages, and will be listed on the Schedule of Events page as the list is finalized.
A limited number of commemorative coins ARE NOW available.
