How Times Change!Look at the treasure we were recently given by Elizabeth Bergus's estate. Atlantic City Magazine, a little over 26 years ago, did a story on our sleepy town soon after a building moratorium had been lifted. (Moratorium was because of lack of a safe water supply.) Eight houses were under construction as of April 1992 (two finished during moratorium). Proud to say former SIA President Bill Cowan is featured, and the article gives credit to the SIA that "banded the residents together and called on Upper Township, the municipality that governs Strathemre, to impose the moratorium." Water was precious and the town was in danger of running out.
Lynda Carpenter, Bruce & Gwen Riordan, Donald & Elizabeth Bergus, and Gussie Eggie and David Meade were also interviewed for the story. The SIA is passing the magazine along to the Schiavo Library for the public to enjoy up close and personal.

Upper Township Releases Survey
of All Strathmere Bulkheads.
The Twp. has invited bay homeowners to an informational meeting on Saturday, June 30, at 9 am in the Firehouse. While the meeting is open to the public, priority seating and initial discussion will be reserved for bayfront owners. Other seating is first come; first served.
You may remember when the Coastal A Zone was announced and a large contingent of Bayview homeowners and others attended a Twp. Meeting. One of the meeting outcomes was to have a complete survey of all bayfront bulkheads to gain a better understanding of existing bulkhead heights. You can view the survey maps by clicking the blue box on the left.
Remember these? If you'd like to register your vehicle as belonging to a "local," a free bumper sticker is avaliable. Email: email@example.com for details. Good for security- identifies your vehicle as one that belongs in town, especially during the off season. (@2" high X 3.5" wide)
