The May 2018 Caper has arrived!

Soon, this gloomy April will be a thing of the past. There’s no better indicator that things are changing by the release of the Strawberry Festival Edition of the Caper. Beau’s message talks about the Pier Projects still ongoing which will hopefully be done soon. There’s also information in his message about the two County led projects which are starting up in May.

Don’t forget, coming up, May 12th from 10am to 2pm at the Clubhouse fields is the Cape St. Claire Volunteer Fire Company Touch-A-Truck fundraiser. It’s an amazing event for the kiddos. Come out on May 19th from 8am – 2pm at the Clubhouse fields for the Cape St. Claire Garden Club’s Annual Plant sale. More information on both of these great events can be found in this month’s Caper. Don’t miss great write-ups from Goshen Farm and CCC in this month’s Caper. There’s great information there as always.

Then, if you haven’t already, set your calendars for THE event of the year. The Strawberry Festival is set to kick off at 10am on June 2nd with the parade from the firehouse. Then, around 11am, things blast off quickly. All of the forms you need are in this Caper. If you’re looking for even more information about what’s in store this year, check out the Strawberry Festival’s website.

See you around the Cape!

The Caper – April 2018 Edition

It’s so hard to talk about spring right now. Mother nature can’t seem to make up her mind on whether she wants to warm up or stay cold. Winter doesn’t seem to want to let go as snow is in the forecast again.

It is April 5th, right?

In this issue of the Caper, Beau reminds everyone that for those who have paid their yearly lot fees, stickers should be arriving in your mailbox this week. He also wants to remind everyone that the Quarterly Membership meeting is going to be held on Tuesday April 24th, 2018. We will be hosting our State Senator and three State Delegates for a 2018 Legislative Review.

Because it’s chilly out, I wanted to take this time to remind you that the 60th Anniversary of the Strawberry Festival will be held on Saturday June 2nd. To start things off, we revamped the Strawberry Festival website and even added a strawberry hunt. Finding strawberries on the site will reveal some history of the festival. Check it out!

In Community news, Goshen Farm will be holding their Spring Open House on April 21st, 2018 from 11-4. You can learn about its history, visit the sharing garden and high tunnel and learn about the importance of soil health. The Garden Club is hosting their Annual Plant sale on May 19th from 8-2pm. Make sure you mark your calendars. Cape Conservation Corps is congratulating their first Habitat Hero winner. Laura & Don Schrank have spent many hours removing invasive and nonnative plants and replacing them with natives. Read more about them in this issue. It also isn’t too late to get involved in Project Clean Stream, which is on April 7th, AND the Cape Conservation Corps itself. See their website and this issue of the Caper for more details.

Spring IS COMING! Might as well prepare for it and enjoy it when it does. See you around the Cape!

It was a wild finish to March but now that April has arrived and the temperatures have started to rise, we can all declare that spring is officially here. It’s about time.

The July/August Caper is now online!

2015, The Caper - 07 - July-Aug_Page_01Double issues of things always signify that they’re taking a little time off. Mary works hard, we think she’s allowed. The best part about this issue though is that it is in full color. Full color issues of The Caper are awesome. We think that you’ll agree with that sentiment.

As always, The Presidential message is spot on and discusses The July 4th parade and BBQ cook off. If you didn’t get a chance to find out who the winner was, now is your opportunity. A big heartfelt thanks is given to all of the volunteers who made our rainy day event a great one. As always, don’t forget to display your CSCIA stickers on your car. We don’t like to tow people and we’re sure you don’t like to be towed.

There are full color images from the Strawberry Festival, which as mentioned before, was an outstanding event. There are updates on the Cape St. Claire road improvement project which is really gaining momentum. The Board Committee reports from the past month really highlight the dedication of the Board on improving The Cape.

There are details on entering The Cape St. Claire Calendar Photo contest so be sure to grab your best photo and enter it! There’s a great update from the Cape Conservation Corps, Garden Club, and Goshen Farms. Also, there’s a Goshen Farm wine tasting benefit, sponsored by Bella’s Liquors, coming up. Details inside!
