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

We have to do that again!

 and I don't want to wait 8 years!
Steak and Sinatra was a hit and a half. We cooked 84 petit sirloins in just over and hour. Amazing. Lots of ideas for next time. Someone mentioned a tux. I'm in for tux. And a cheesy little fedora? Uh-Huh. I made a few trips up the back stairs to see what it looked like in the Clubhouse and it was packed every time. That was perfect. To see so many neighbors sitting and visiting is just awesome. Preliminary numbers from Super Dave says the club made a few hundred bucks to boot. Thanks to all for coming out and making this a great event.

    Next up is Movie Night! The pic is Office Space, a great comedy. Please remember to bring some spare change as we will be passing the hat. Thanks.

At the Last Club meeting we decided to have the next meeting on June 27th. That is one week early and moves the date to accommodate July 4th. We will be looking for some volunteers to put together some kid games, shepherd the Golf Cart Parade and arrange for Judges, a couple of weenie cooks and the Scholarship Committee Chair, Amanda Booren will be looking for some help on the Silent Auction.

Something else that came up was having a couple of fund raisers so we can buy a roll up garage style door for the middle bay of the Paul Shelley Pavilion. It would help immensely with keeping the noise down during Jammin and go a long way to  keeping the weather at bay for other events. Thoughts?

This from neighbor Dottie:
Please add this to your IslandDrumz:    A lot of you know Donna Boyd she is a friend of Charlie's, Chuck and Lee knows her well..  They are regulars at sunset even though they live at Waterford town homes. She has colon cancer and VERY little insurance.  What she has is not good. She has only been able to work a couple of hours a day as the chemo has made her VERY sick and weak. There is a big benefit at the Elk's Lodge on Sat. starting at 12:00.  Claudio will play at 12:30 and other bands will follow.  They are selling tickets for a big, nice 43 in. color TV.  There is an auction also for a fishing trip and many other great prizes. Margarita , one of my close friends is heading it and she has worked so hard to raise money for Donna's expenses.  Tickets for the TV are 5.00 each.  The benefit promises to be a fun thing to attend.  Donna is a sweet, deserving person and need help during this time of need. Thanks to Lee who has already purchases tickets.  We can ride our golf carts over to the lodge.  Cut through at the Home Depot to get to the Elk's Lodge. Margarita will be at my house on Wed. evening and we may make sunset.  I can get any of you tickets if you want to drop the money over to me.  Thank YOU! for reading this.

I am mailing you $100 for the roll up door for the pavilion to get that fundraiser started. Since the city sponsors this event and the noise is a nuisance to many of its citizens, maybe the City will fund or do matching funds.

I dropped off 3 silent auction items to Amanda for scholarship fundraiser.

Dottie,I will drop off ticket money at your house for sweet
Donna.
