ORLANDO – It’s likely to sound like a novel concept to some people: get a bank card, then visit a museum — for free
This weekend, Bank of America has a special offer for its cardholders: free admission to a number of museums and other cultural institutions in the Orlando and Tampa area.
It happens on Saturday, Aug. 4 and Sunday, Aug. 5 – as well as the first full weekend of each month – at local museums that are participating in this program. In Orlando, it includes the Orlando Museum of Art and the Orange County Regional History Center, and the Mennello Museum of American Art.
To the west, the bank’s card holding customers can visit the Tampa Museum of Art and, in St. Petersburg, the Florida Holocaust Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts.

On Friday, July 27, in a year when Poinciana is celebrating its 40th anniversary as a community, a little bit of history was made when the Community Center hosted the very first Miss Poinciana Pageant, an event that put the women and girls of Poinciana front and center.
More than 150 people attended the event, including Farrell, who said it was nothing short of inspiring to see such a positive, upbeat and entertaining event come off without a hitch. Continue reading
