The Caper – June 2021 Edition

After a bitterly cold (and record breaking) start to the summer, we think Mother Nature is ready to get back on track. Looks as though we’ll be safely leaving those temperatures in the 50’s in the rear view mirror. Let’s sure hope so. In this month’s Caper, Jeff talks about the great job our teachers have done throughout this past year. It’s been a crazy and challenging time for them and for our students. He also talks about being mindful of the Cape and Anne Arundel County rules. Have fun but be lawful and safe. Also, if you don’t use Facebook and want updates on CSCIA, please add your email address to our website. You’ll be emailed when new things are a foot! Be sure to read Jeff’s full message, it’s outstanding.

Ryan, our Town Manager, will be celebrating his three year anniversary this month. It’s hard to describe the positive impact he has had on the daily comings and goings within the Cape. In his message, as we get ready for the 4th of July, he talks about firework safety. He also wants to remind you that our quarterly membership meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 27th at 7:30pm.

In community group news, Goshen Farm is having their raffle for a chance to win 2 Daylite lifetime 8ft kayaks and paddles. The drawing will be in July.

The Caper – May 2021

That disease which must not be named has started to loosen its grip on our dailies. Jeff, in his Presidential message dives into how TDWMNBN has affected the community over the past year. We’re all looking forward to whatever the new normal can be. As we all start to get outside more and <GASP> see other humans, Jeff has a reminder to all of you on brushing up on the rules and regulations of the community, including our boat ramp and beaches. Check our site for more details.

Ryan, our Town Manager, has a great message on things in bloom and ways to improve your landscapes. Maintaining turf grass is one of the easiest ways to prevent soil erosion in your yards. The University of Maryland Extension office recommends tall fescue as the species of choice for our state. More information in this month’s Caper.

In Community group news, Goshen Farm is doing their Annual Goshen Farm kayak raffle. $5 tickets can be purchased on their website: https://goshenfarm.org. Drawing will be in July.

On May 14th and 15th from 9am to 4pm, we will be doing Cape Cleanup. There are some limitations with this year’s event so please be sure to read the article on page 11 to understand what you can and can’t bring.

The Cape St. Claire Strawberry Festival, even though it won’t be in June, will be held on August 28th. We’re so excited to have this event and we hope it will be the best yet. More details on it are in this month’s Caper.

Don’t miss the write-up on the CSC Shoreline Beach Restoration Ribbon Cutting ceremony that was held on April 13th. It was a great event held to celebrate the board’s resiliency over the past 8 years to get it done.

Bottom line, read this month’s Caper, it’s LOADED with the information you need.

See you around the Cape!
