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

74? Really?


Mary Ann say it ain’t so! Happy birthday to Dawn Wells. Who else liked her best?

The Children’s Halloween Party will be held at the Club House on Saturday the 27th

Don’t forget about your Farmer’s Market! It’s every Saturday and it can’t get any closer. The FM Team is working hard to find new vendors and they are back up to 18+. Lots of new stuff so stop by and take a peek. And to all of you out there with a little extra from your garden they will take it, sell it, and donate the proceeds to the Scholarship Fund. How cool is that?!

Chief says the Police BBQ fundraiser is on for the 24th of November. They will server from 11AM until 3PM. After all that turkey some BBQ is gonna be great! Chief, I will donate the biggest brisket I can find for your BBQ then I’ll come up and help you eat it. Tell me what else I can do to help.

Parade update. The Parade will begin as close to Noon on the 10th as we can manage it. We will line up in front of the Park. We are going for the longest golf cart parade in Texas so spread the word. We need to get every buggie on the Island involved. And feel free to invite off island friends if they want to get in on the record. We are still hammering out the details of the route. As soon as we can nail it down I’ll post it here and email it out.
