Annual PAPOA Membership &
April Board Meetings
April 18, 2020
Sea Base Conference Room
We have had a busy 2019, and we’ll go over where the money has gone, the results of the Beach Survey and what we have planned for the future. One topic of discussion will undoubtedly be the 2020 budget. We will also be talking about anything else you might wish to bring up.
Three Board Members are up for reelection. If you are interested in serving on the Board, please let Mari know sooner rather than later. And include a biography.
Watch your mailbox for a ballot and more information. Please carefully follow the instructions for returning the ballot and be sure to mail it back to us.
Ballots will be counted at the Islamorada Library beginning at 4 pm on April 17th. This meeting is open to the membership.
The April Board meeting will be held immediately following the Annual Meeting.

When? Sometime later this year. October, maybe?
Where? Your yard!
Get rid of the fishing gear you don’t use anymore, the clothes that have been in your closet forever, anything and everything!
We put the ads in the papers – you put the stuff in your yard!

Our Winter Celebration!
A couple of dozen folks put up with the 20 knot winds to enjoy some outstanding Hors d’Oeuvres (especially the yummy shrimp) and some even better comaraderie at the Beach for our Winter Celebration.
President Dave spoke about issues facing the Association, touching on the upcoming budget deficit, golf carts, and of course, the trespassers and other problems at our Beach. All in all, very informative! Thank you, Dave, for listening to our concerns.
And thank you, Esther, for putting on a great event.
Cookie Exchange on the Beach
The popular get-together was held on December 7th. Thank you to everyone who brought and shared cookies. For those of you who didn’t make it, you missed out on some fabulous treats!
Lots of People and Lots of Food
October 5, 2019
About 60 people trickled in an out for a fantastic time on the Beach. The “appetizers” were more like main courses and were delicious! The company was supurb, and all had a great time.
If you couldn’t make it, please check back here for the next event and come out to meet new friends and renew acquaintances.
A Fourth Filled with FUN
July 4-7, 2019
People lounging in the cool(?) waters just offshore, a white sandy beach, the smell of hamburgers and hot dogs cooking on a grill … all the ingredients one needed for a wonderful time in Port Antigua!
The Food’s Almost Ready!
While the offshore waters were crowded, the beach had plenty of room to play volleyball, horseshoes, or to just lay out in the sun!.
Just Enough Room for One More
The parking lot was busy, and the overflow lot next to the boat ramp had its share of occupants.

Memorial Day at the Beach
May 25 – 27, 2019
The winds kept many folks close to shore this Memorial Day weekend, and quite a few decided to visit the Beach. While there were MANY boats anchored in the shallow waters, there was plenty of room for people to picnic on the beach. There was even an open Tiki hut on Saturday afternoon!
Building Sand Castles!
Weary Beach Goers Head for Home
Picnicking on the Beach
The sand piles were popular with the youngsters and oldsters alike.
Wide Open Spaces!
And a robust Sheriff’s Deputies presence kept trespassers down and the more rowdy partyers tame. See the “News” for a bit more on that!
All Ready For Customers!
Community Wide Yard Sale
March 30, 2019
Okay, maybe it wasn’t so much “Recent Fun,” but those who participated in the Yard Sale did say it was a success. There was an early morning traffic jam on El Capitan as that street took the prize for the most yard sales.
December 4, 2018
Cookie Exchange showcased the baking skills of quite a few of our members, and those who attended came away with lots of fresh baked deliciousness. Thanks to the Recreation Committee for putting it together, and thanks to those who participated for the goodies.
