Strathmere Improvement Association October Update
October 13, 2016

Beach Cleanup Reminder: The SFEC invites you to join in this Saturday, 9 am, beginning at Seaview and the beach. Please wear gloves; trash bags will be provided.  Later that day, everyone is invited to a special presentation by Mr. Hugh Carberry, Director of the NJ Artificial Reef Program, concerning the history and current state of the New Jersey artificial reef program. 4:00 pm at the Firehouse. Refreshments will be served!  

Check Your Electric Bill! A few folks in town have noticed big jumps in their electric bills. The CFSWB advise all to compare recent statements with last year's. Some meters have been found to be faulty. Customer service number is 800.642.3780. Have your account number and service address ready.

Recycling Reminder: While not as exciting as saving $$ on your utility bill, it is a good time to review your recycling when in Strathmere. All recycling materials must be loose-please no plastic or trash bags. If you bag your recycling, it will go into the trash containers, not recycling. As another reminder, please do not use the trash and recycling containers on beach ends for your household trash.

Save the Date!  The annual Christmas party will again be held at the Deauville on December 10. Details to follow. The SIA and Fire Company are co-sponsors.

Strathmere Stories Roll On: We are continuing our video archive project and invite you to view some of the raw footage on youtube. If you have a story you'd like to add, please email us at Wouldn't it be fun to get some of your family's memories on camera? We have some very user-friendly camcorders and can also help you get started. Visit our "channel" on Youtube:

After a long, rainy end to summer, a spectacular autumn finally broke through. The moon and the stars at night, along with our trademark sunrises and sunsets, have been putting on quite a show. It's a special time in Strathmere and Whale Beach!


Last Sunday a rainbow appeared at the Point!
