IslandDrumz

Welcome to our little slice of paradise! Clear Lake Shores is probably one of the best kept secrets in the entire Bay Area. Yes we are an island. We are surrounded by Clear Lake, Jarbo Bayou and the Lazy Bend canals. Plug this in to Google Maps and you'll see what I mean 29.32' by 95.01' We are about half way between Galveston Island and the city of Houston and located in north Galveston county. I will try to keep us up on all the goings on that we can walk, boat, bike or drive our golf carts to. Very few things pi$$ me off but one of them is wasting my precious time. I'll try not to waste yours. Enjoy. ab

May Day


Busy week and it all starts tonight. See you at the City Council meeting at 7:00
 
Keels and Wheels is this weekend at Lakewood more here:

Kemah Gumbo Cookoff Saturday, 8-8 on 6th street. YUM!
 
I am going to post this every other day to make sure everyone gets it
“Proposition 1
The reauthorization of the local sales and use tax in the City of Clear Lake Shores, Texas at the rate of one-fourth of one percent to continue providing revenue for maintenance and repair of municipal streets.   For or Against”
 
Voting for this proposition will continue to provide about $180,000 per year in sales tax revenue to the City to help maintain our streets.
It is not a property tax and does not increase or decrease the property tax that our home owners pay – which is currently zero.
 
Voting against this proposition will discontinue this important revenue stream to the city.
It must be re-enacted every three years to retain the revenue that we are now collecting.
If you would like more information please contact the mayor, any council member or city staff official.

Everyone please show up for Frank's benefit. He has been the first one to volunteer for years anytime we have attended any charity event. He is really loved and I am sure there are going to be some great auction items available including a plane ride donated by an islander!! The music is going to be great too and you will get to experience the majic that happens when great musicians get together and play music. Look forward to seeing you there. This may be one of the best parties we have all summer long.
