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

Happy Star Wars Day!

Wait for it...................
May the Fourth be with you!

OK I feel safe enough to say its Spring. What a gorgeous weekend it has been. ANd what better way to kick it off than Jammin' with the Level One Band. You just gotta love that motown sound. What a crowd pleaser. And what a crowd!

So what do you think about the City Looking for a new motto? Someone thinks the old Yachting Captitol of Texas is in need of an update. Some think it needs to stay put. I think the Yachting Capitol of Texas is more of a title than a motto. It's a statement. A fact of sorts. A motto is more of  "a phrase meant to summarize the general motivation or intention of a social group or organization" (thanks wiki). With that I'm going to submit "It's where you want to be". What's yours?

You only have a few more days to register for the IWGarage Sale. It's only $5 bucks and yes you do have to register. It's only fair and the $5 is used to pay for all the advertising in the local papers and new signs when needed. Don't get all cheap and try to jones out of this. The IWGS raises a lot of money for Your Civic Club so it is for a good cause to boot.
