Strathmere History Videos

In August of 2015, Ken Weaver gave a talk and slideshow of “Early Strathmere History” to the residents of Strathmere. First up below is the actual video of the presentation which features old photos from people in Strathmere and the Strathmere website and a ton of Strathmere history from Ken.

The second video is a “Then and Now” presentation with old images of homes and buildings in Strathmere and what they look like now.

September: National Preparedness Month
The theme this year is “Don’t Wait. Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today.” Here at the shore we realize the importance of being prepared for emergencies. Whether it’s just moving deck furniture or making a plan for evacuation. It’s always good to PLAN ahead even when it turns out not to be necessary (like when a hurricane changes direction and drifts around in the ocean). So, make your plan today!

Meteor Shower this Week!
Ed Tettemer writes: "The Perseid Meteor Shower peaks this week - especially Thursday night and Friday morning - and will be wonderful in Strathmere, assuming clear skies."
Here's a link to some good information: http://www.timeanddate.com/astronomy/meteor-shower/perseid.html
The best show will be in the pre-dawn darkness. So get up around 3:45 and run outside to the beach!
Last Summer Concert!

Strathmere Stories-
The SIA has embarked on a project to create a video archive of our history, as told by our longtime Strathmere and Whale Beach families and current residents and visitors. Everyone has a story, a memory to share. What's yours? Come to our upcoming open mic night, August 25 at Schiavo Library, and take part in the excitement. Or you can borrow a video camera and record your family's story as well. Email us for more details. We'll show a clip or two of what we've begun to gather at the August 19 meeting.
2016 Bergus Laurence Scholarship Awards were presented by Katie Laurence at the July meeting. Pictured below: John Pond, Matthew Pond, Michaela and Valerie Voegtlin. (Not pictured: Brian and CJ Furey.)
