The Beach Restoration project is moving swiftly along. It’s moving so quickly, in fact, that work could begin as early as November. Attached here is a packet that was sent to residents within 300 feet of the Main Beach for review.
Even though mother nature tried to cancel it, the Christmas tree lighting ceremony ushered in the holiday season around the Cape. Bill’s message highlights the ceremony and also talks about the year end activities. This Caper issue contains the ballot for you to elect your new and old board members for 2020. Included in this issue are the bios so please read them!

Fall is in full swing here now. If you hung around the shopping center yesterday between 5:30 and 6:30, you know exactly what I mean. The kid’s excitement from all of the candy is how the Cape kicks off Halloween. Looks like mother nature will cooperate and give Halloween Happenings, which is due to take place this Saturday, a chance to go off without a hitch.
The new Caper is full of what you would expect for the end of October. Bill’s message talks about the tragedy that recently struck the Cape and how we can help cope with it. Ryan, the town manager, talks about leaf litter and how it poses a threat to our water quality. His message this month is not to be missed. In upcoming events, as I’ve already said, Halloween Happenings is due to take place this Saturday from 10am to 3pm. CCC is holding their 5th annual Harvest Bash next Friday, November 1st. Tickets are still $25 but will go up at the door.
This month’s Caper also contains the upcoming budget for 2021. Please remember that the Annual meeting is due to take place on January 14th at 7:30 at the clubhouse. We’ll be electing new board members and voting on the budget. Please take the time to review.
Hate to jump ahead but Santa is due to the guardhouse on December 1st and then will be stopping by for Breakfast with Santa, taking place on December 14th. More information on Breakfast with Santa is in this Caper.

It certainly doesn’t feel like it but fall has officially arrived. Cool weather is coming but summer is hanging on for dear life. Bill’s message in this Caper talks about things to come with this wonderful season. He also gives an update on the entrance sign on Cape St. Claire Road which I’m sure will dazzle. It’s also a call for anyone who is interested in serving this great community, it’s time for nominations for new board members so please drop Ryan Anderson a line to get more information.

We cannot believe that summer is almost over. It was just yesterday that we walked down Cape St. Claire Road and celebrated the Strawberry Festival. Before you know it, the leaves will be changing and the temps will start to drop. Good times are a comin’ around the Cape. This Caper is chuck full of goodness. Bill talks about the “outside of the Cape” dilemma in his message. It’s not to be missed. The Town Manager, Ryan Anderson, thanks the Beach Attendants and gives an important message to the Cape drivers. Best not miss it.
In community news, The Beach Restoration project is moving along. Can you believe that we hope it have it all finished by next year’s Strawberry Festival? Wouldn’t that be something?
