SIA seeks 501-C status; necessitates by-laws amendments 
Please click on the link to review proposed amendments to be voted on at the August 18 meeting: 
http://www.strathmereimprovementassociation.org/

  As we move forward toward gaining non-profit status, there are several governing pieces missing from our by-laws which have necessitated a few changes. (Our application must be accompanied by our by-laws.) We've uploaded a draft of the proposed amendments, with the suggested changes highlighted in yellow.  When you click on the link above, you'll be able to open the by-laws and see the highlighted areas. We'll preview them at the August annual meeting.

Nominations Sought for 2018 SIA Officers
 If you or someone you know is interested in running for office for the next calendar year, please email Nominating Chair Marion Ingram -  marion.ingram@comcast.net  to add a name to the slate. Offices are: President, Vice President, Recording Secretary, Treasurer and Member-at-Large. Descriptions of duties are found in the by-laws (see link in previous story).

Last Castaway Lounge Concert of the Summer!
   Remember Spacecamp, with locals Brian McNally and Brian Nash? They're back on August 12!
Check the SIA facebook page for updates as the date draws closer.


Bring your Little Ones to Safety Day at the Firehouse!
   The SFEC is once again sponsoring safety day August 13, 2-4pm. We'll be there with goodies for the kids and the Fire Company will put on demonstrations, talk about fire safety and other valuable topics. 


Do You Have a Home Elevator in Strathmere?
New post-Sandy height changes have brought an increase in the number of home elevators in town. The Fire Company would like to have information from homeowners in the event a rescue is needed. Please email Dave Townsend and let him know about your home elevator: dtown711@gmail.com
