Strathmere 4th of July Parade and other upcoming events

To all Strathmere and Whale Beach Homeowners and Visitors,

Get your floats, wagon, bikes and ideas ready for the Fourth of July Parade!

Since the Fourth, and the parade, falls on a Sunday, service at the Strathmere Church will begin a half-hour earlier (at 9:00) and the parade will start a half-hour later - at 11:00 am.
Registration will be at 10:00 and judging at 10:30. As always, awards and refreshments following the parade will be at the Deauville Inn. Since we had no entries in the coaches and strollers division last year, we've combined that with "mixed walkers". See above for the new categories. Strathmere tee shirts, caps and visors will be available for purchase before and after the parade.

The Strathmere Improvement Association includes all owners and many visitors to Strathmere and Whale Beach. It was founded over 50 years ago as a community organization with the simple objective of making Strathmere a better place. We are proud of the organization's many accomplishments over the years. Our thanks to all who have paid their SIA Dues ($10 annually per adult). The dues and fund raisers provide for distributing the trash regulations, mailing the post cards, funding the Fourth of July Parade, and our share of the Star Party and Christmas Party. In the past, we've also donated money to help pay for extra State Police protection. If you have adult children or relatives (or visitors) who visit Strathmere, please forward this message to them - perhaps they'd like to be members and receive these e-mail messages also.

You can contact us by responding to this e-mail or by mailing SIA at PO Box 57 in Strathmere.

Thanks to all for your continuing support!

Butch Vandegrift - President
Ken Weaver - Vice-President
Donna Diefenderfer - Treasurer
Debbie Vandegrift - Secretary
