Civic Association DVD is big hit at City’s 60th Birthday Bash
The Civic Association provided a DVD to the City that was shown on the Commission Chamber’s large screens to the delight of visitors to the City’s 60th Birthday celebration! The video was produced to commemorate the City’s first 50 years back in 2009. And here’s your chance to own one of these DVD’s. Just visit our website at and donate to our annual fund. Donate $30 and we’ll send you a copy in time for the holidays. Limited quantity available and all donations go to our annual fund that helps pay for Music by the Sea and Surf Illumination talent. No funds are paid to anyone with the all-volunteer Civic Association Board of Directors. If you’re new to our community, this is a great way to learn the history of our little piece of paradise.
The Civic Association also wants to congratulate City Manager Max Royle on his 30th anniversary with the City. Mr. Royle is a devoted public servant and we have always found him to be a delight to work with. We wish him continued success and hope he continues to enjoy his tenure here in St Augustine Beach

Help us plan the future of Music by the Sea
Next year will mark the 18th season of the iconic Music by the Sea Concert Series and the Civic Association is seeking your input on the future. We’re asking all of our concert fans to visit to share their thoughts on schedule options, shuttle service and more. The survey also asks for feedback on the bands we have used in the past. The goals are to continue to provide quality entertainment for all of our patrons, drive more visitors into our local stores, hotels and restaurants. The survey may be taken only one time per IP Address. This will ensure the results are not skewed by someone with nothing but time on their hands. Our web guy has assured us that Russian hackers will also not be able to influence the results! The survey will be available until December 20th. If you have ever attended one of our free concerts, we invite you to complete the survey.
