Meteor Shower this Week!
Ed Tettemer writes: "The Perseid Meteor Shower peaks this week - especially Thursday night and Friday morning - and will be wonderful in Strathmere, assuming clear skies."
Here's a link to some good information:
The best show will be in the pre-dawn darkness. So get up around 3:45 and run outside to the beach!
Last Summer Concert!

Strathmere Stories-
The SIA has embarked on a project to create a video archive of our history, as told by our longtime Strathmere and Whale Beach families and current residents and visitors. Everyone has a story, a memory to share. What's yours? Come to our upcoming open mic night, August 25 at Schiavo Library, and take part in the excitement. Or you can borrow a video camera and record your family's story as well. Email us for more details. We'll show a clip or two of what we've begun to gather at the August 19 meeting.
2016 Bergus Laurence Scholarship Awards were presented by Katie Laurence at the July meeting. Pictured below: John Pond, Matthew Pond, Michaela and Valerie Voegtlin. (Not pictured: Brian and CJ Furey.)
