Larry Hogan announced yesterday that Maryland will be in Phase 3 of COVID recovery on Friday. That’s good news. Some would argue that’s too fast and others would say it’s too slow. No debate on that here. It’s nice to see us climbing out of the COVID doldrums and trying to find out sense of what normal used to be. Events around the Cape still continue to be cancelled. We hope to have something in October but perhaps that’s simply wishful thinking. Maybe we can light the Cape tree in December. Maybe Santa can come for a visit…? I’m skeptical but am hopeful.
We’ve received most of the required permits to get started on the beach project(s). Now, we have to wait for the contractor(s). Due to the project’s delays, we won’t be able to start in 2020 but we’re on target to start (and complete!) work on both projects at the same time in the spring of 2021. We absolutely cannot wait for that, It’s been a long road to get to this point. Thanks to all board members for their hard work this year and in previous years to get us to where we are today.
Bill’s Presidential message is the standard stuff from that stiff … say that 5 times fast. Ryan’s town manager message talks about the ways you can get your lawn ready for the fall. He also reminds everyone about the Quarterly meeting, scheduled for October 27th 2020. Cape Cleanup is scheduled for September 18th and 19th. This Caper has more information about that. Cape Conservation Corps is hosting their fall plant sale on Saturday September 26th from 9am until noon at the field behind the clubhouse. They will be practicing safe social distancing. The Garden Club is hosting their annual Seed and Cutting Exchange on Tuesday, October 6th, 5-6pm. They will practice social distancing, in the parking corral behind the Clubhouse.
Please don’t miss out on the tribute to Josephine Gardner. A long time Cape board member, she was a tremendous influence and hard worker for this community for so many years. She will be missed. Don’t miss the beautiful tributes by many Cape St. Claire board members and residents.
