In Memoriam
Anita Belmar
The Palm Beach Civic Association extends our deepest sympathy to Director Warren Belmar on the sudden passing of his wife Anita. 

Warren met Anita 45 years ago on a blind date and recognized her kind-heartedness, as we did here in our community.

Anita will be missed, and we will keep the Belmar family in our thoughts and prayers during this sad time.  

Anthony "Buzz" Myura
The Palm Beach Civic Association is saddened by the passing of Supporting Benefactor Anthony "Buzz" Myura.  

With his wife Patty, he made a great impact in our community in business and in philanthropy. 

We extend our deepest sympathy to Patty and wish her well during this difficult time. 
Water Survey
Dear Members,

Our Lake Worth Waterkeeper and Florida Atlantic University’s Water Analysis Laboratory are undertaking a water testing program to determine the health of the marine environment in the Intracoastal Waterway along Palm Beach. This survey will help the laboratory understand the chemicals that are being used on Palm Beach landscapes. The data from the study will help us gain a better understanding of how these chemicals affect the lagoon, allowing us to make more informed decisions to build a healthier community. We hope you will take a few minutes to fill out the short 10 question survey that can be accessed by clicking here .

Many thanks,

Linda Beaty, Co-Chairman
Environmental Beautification Committee  

Be sure to watch this week's PALM BEACH TV newscast, to learn more about the Lake Worth Waterkeeper and his efforts to protect the waters right off our island in the Lake Worth Lagoon.
