An employee of the evaluation department of the Punta Gorda Town Council Lavert Lambey was at one of the locations where he was supervising a group of youths at work.

What we do is we split the group into four around the town and we basically decorate the park and clean up the entrance of PG. We clean up the central park and the sea park as well. The program sponsored by the Punta Gorda town council and the current mayor Fern Gutierrez. The purpose of this summer program is to collaborate with the youths. At the end of the program each youth will receive a bag of school supplies with cash. We look forward to anyone who wants to join the next group next week 8am to 10am you can reach the Punta Gorda Town Council office of the mayor to sign down.
