Punta Gorda in Bloom

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony – Taylor Street Beautification

Punta Gorda in Bloom celebrated the completion of its latest beautification project at an April 19, 2021 ribbon cutting sponsored by the Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce.  The purpose of the event was to recognize the accomplishment of TEAM Punta Gorda and the Green Thumbs organization in completing the Taylor Street beautification project. Following the ribbon cutting, TEAM volunteers hosted a reception.

PG in Bloom founder and chairman Richard Polk was honored as were many volunteers, most of whom are members of the PGI Green Thumbs organization. Benefactor Alan Schulman and his wife Barbara were recognized for their contribution to all that blooms in Punta Gorda, including the History Park gardens.
