So how was your drive in to work this fine Friday AM? Did you get to see any of the balloons? It's BallunarFest Weekend and they usually kick off with a fly-in Friday morning. Lots of variables so it's almost always last minute.
Are you ready to tear off the September page of your calendar? Next week is October ready or not and things are getting busier. The fun starts Sunday at the pumpkin house. I really hope some of you can make it out and lend a hand. I'll be in Shirley's front yard about 3p.
Then there's Jazz Fest in Kemah. It starts Saturday. Read all about it here http://galvestondailynews.com/story/350578
National Night Out is next Tuesday night. Below is the schedule. No conflict, City Council moved their meeting to Monday. Agenda below.
Parade starts at 6:00 Lazy Lane and Birch. Pack the family in your golf cart and follow along, or get on your scooter, bike or roller skates and join us anywhere along the route for a fun time. Get acquainted with our police force during the evening. Want to help? We could use a hand or two handing out drinks.
Parade moves at 6:15 to South Shore & Narcissus
6:30 Forest and West Shore
6:45 Pine and Ivy
7:00 Queen and Juniper
7:15 to 8:00 Sundial Park
If you haven't paid your Civic Club dues this will be a good time - Find any board member and we'll take care of the rest.

washing is not possible, staying home when sick, maintaining personal space

"If you're not having fun, you're doing it wrong"
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
