SIA Newsletter 9/6/11 - SIA Meeting This Friday Evening

To All Strathmere and Whale Beach Homeowners and Visitors,

This Friday night, the SIA will hold its September (and final 2011) meeting at 8:00 pm. We will again have a Memorabilia Night, which proved so popular last year. Please bring scrapbooks, souvenirs or postcards from "Old Strathmere". An invitation to the meeting is attached.

At our August Meeting, we elected new officers and awarded savings bonds to our Strathmere students. Here are four of the students:
Chris ("CJ") Furey, John Pond, Matt Pond and Brian Furey. All attend Bishop McHugh School.

Also receiving an award, for the 12th consecutive year, was Nick Roash, who graduated from Ocean City High School this June. He was unable to attend because of a Beach Patrol commitment.

Nick is now attending Florida Atlantic University.

August was also our "Jersey Fresh" meeting. Goodies made from New Jersey products were prepared by:

Liunda Bateman, Elaine Holsombach, Diddy Addario, Wendy Dougherty, Debbie Vandegrift and Christine Furey (not pictured). They were great!

Did you make your 2011 SIA dues payment yet? Our thanks to everyone who has. Remember, it's just $10 per adult family member, and you can send it to SIA at PO Box 57 in Strathmere.

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 objective of making Strathmere a better place. We are proud of the organization's many accomplishments over the years. The dues and fund raisers provide for, among other things, funding the Fourth of July Parade, and our share of the Christmas Party. 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!

The Strathmere Improvement Association -
Butch Vandegrift - President
Linda Bateman -Vice-President
