SIA Newsletter 11 20 2012 - Christmas Party and Town Meeting 12/8; Lost & Found; Trash Pickup; More...

To All Strathmere and Whale Beach Homeowners and Visitors,

The Strathmere Community Christmas Party, sponsored jointly by the SIA and the Strathmere Volunteer Fire Company, will be held at 6:00 pm on Saturday, December 8 at the Firehouse. So that Santa can complete his list for the party, please let us know the name and age of any child (ten or under) who will be attending, so we can help him with that list!
Santa and his helpers need to get that information from you as soon as possible.   

Please let us know by  emailing Donna Diefenderfer at donnad921@comcast.net
 or calling Donna at 215-801-5876 (cell) or 609-263-3620 (home); or dropping her a note at PO Box 57, Strathmere, NJ 08248.

Thanks for your help - and we'll see you all on December 8!


That same morning, December 8 at 10 am at the Firehouse, the Citizens for Strathmere and Whale Beach will sponsor a Town Meeting with Mayor Richard Palombo

All Strathmerians are welcome to attend a facilitated discussion regarding the impact of Hurricane Sandy and the future of beach and bayfront management in Strathmere and Whale Beach. You are invited to listen and participate with your questions and comments. A lively conversation with Mayor Palombo is encouraged, one which we hope will remain focused on what happens from this day forward, and not upon past disagreements.


Lost & Found:
We received a picture of one "found" item: a birdhouse. It's not new, but may have some sentimental value...
We have also been made aware of some additional "lost" items:

**A 12' 1950's era plywood over cedar frame, double ended duckboat, marsh brown color, in the process of being restored.
**A 7' x 3' x 2" table made from a tree (quite heavy)
**A 10-foot Pelican, yellow sit-in kayak
**A bright green sit-on-top kayak
**A blue, black and white O'Brien "Ultra Screamer" Towable Tube (deflated)
Please respond to this newsletter if any of these are found – sia6@comcast.net
We will be happy to list additional lost or found items.
Township Engineer Paul Dietrich asks residents to put flood debris out before Friday, November 30.
This will be the last day that the Public Works will have a crew to pick up debris curb side.
Residents who have bulky items for pickup can put them out to be collected on Monday, December 3 as part of the regular Bulk Pickup. You should call 628-2011 ext. 352 to schedule the pickup.
If you have construction debris or bulky items that needs to be collected between the regular Bulk Pickup days, you must contact Paul Dietrich at 628-2011 ext. 244 to discuss the nature of the pickup.
Note: Perhaps a little late for this advice - but be sure to take pictures of storm-damaged possessions before you dispose of them. Insurance adjusters may want more than your word...

The SFEC will hold their "Last Cast" Tournament this Friday and Saturday.
