SIA Newsletter 12 24 2011 - Merry Christmas!

To All Strathmere and Whale Beach Homeowners and Visitors,

This newsletter reminds us of the movie "Groundhog Day"...
We're writing (again) about replacing the bridge railings, beach replenishment, trash pickup, replacing the bridge railings, beach replenishment, etc., etc......

The work on the bridge continues to progress, although after almost three months of work, you have to wonder if they'll complete it in the five months left until Memorial Day.

It does look nice, though (comparing the old and the new)...

As mentioned in our last newsletter, the dredge has arrived and has now begun our beach replenishment. Here's the view from ground level...

and here are bird's-eye views, compliments of Ted Kingston:

Since both Christmas and New Year's Day fall on Sunday, the Township has a holiday on each of those Mondays. Normally we would only have trash collection on those Tuesdays, but in response to our inquiry about going three weeks without a recycling pickup, they agreed to send a recycling truck over later in the day on each of those Tuesdays.

Consequently, we will have both trash and recycling picked up on Tuesday, December 27 and Tuesday, January 3.

We continue to have (relatively) mild nights, so we "Strathmorons" are still taking daily outside showers. Although tonight (Christmas Eve) is forecast to go below freezing, it won't be enough to freeze pipes, so it looks like we can continue to shower outside right up to the end of 2011. Lucky us!

To everyone, we wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Thanks to all for your continuing support of the SIA!
