Boat Ramp job opening; Fire Commission Election; Holiday Trash & Recycling

Happy Valentine's Day from the Strathmere Improvement Association!  Feb. 12, 2017

 News:  Boat Ramp Attendants being hired; 
Fire Commission Elections;
and President's weekend trash schedule 

Boat Ramp Nearing Completion
Strathmere First!
Are you interested in becoming Strathmere’s First Boat Ramp Attendant?
At a recent Township meeting, Karen Mitchell inquired about who would work at the new boat ramp this season. She then followed up with Township Clerk Barbara Young, and Township CFO Barbara  Spiegel to advocate for Strathmerians to be hired. A blank application is on the SIA website (link below) or you can contact the Twp. Clerk and or CFO offices for an application.
Three new positions will be created to man the Strathmere Boat Ramp from May 26, 2017 through Sept. 4, 2017, with a salary of $12.50 per hour.  These will be part time positions with existing Beasley Point collectors having first dibs at the Strathmere positions. However, at least one new position will be available and possibly up to three. Karen argued that someone from Strathmere should be hired. For more of Karen's message and to find an application form, click on the link to the SIA page:


Cast your vote upstairs in the firehouse from 2 -8pm.

Trash and Recycling Pickup for President's Weekend will be on Tuesday, February 21,  according to the Public Works website.

   Please remember that recycling must be loose inside the container, not bagged. Thanks!

Schiavo Library February 2017 Newsletter

Schiavo Library February 2017 Newsletter

February Schedule - 
Just a reminder - the library will be closed for the first two weeks of February again this year. This will provide needed maintenance time. We’ll be reopening on February 14th with our regular schedule. I will be in Florida, so Melissa Warren, my assistant, will be covering the library. Her hours will be 9-3:00pm Tuesday - Friday and 10-4:00pm Saturday. I’ll be back at the beginning of March.

Take Your Child to the Library Day – Feb. 4 -
There’s an official day for everything – so, don’t miss a chance to take a child to the library on February 4th or any day of the year. Libraries are very special places. Or if you’re looking for a great February book for your child or grandchild, check out the website: They have comprehensive lists for every occasion. For Valentine’s Day I recommend Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch by Eileen Spinelli and The Day It Rained Hearts by Felicia Bond. We have them right here in the library.

Love Your Pet Day – Feb. 20
If you would like to read a novel or memoir about pets, stop in to the library and try one of these:

February: Library Lovers’ Month 
Last, but not least: February is Library Lovers’ Month. So, if you love your local library, show it! Write notes of gratitude to your local librarian or maybe even better - write your local politicians and tell them how important our libraries are to everyone! Or donate books, money or even your own time to your local library. I’m sure that they will appreciate it.

Christine Rohrman, Library Director
