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 Presidents Day!

If you're old enough to remember when the two birthdays were separate events raise your hand. Remember why they were combined?
And it's National Cherry Pie Day!

Hats off to P Duffey on a GREAT Carti Gras parade and celebration in general. You did an awesome job again, and the Red Beans and Rice cook off was super. Not sure how you managed to pull off the perfect weather but you did. I even got second place. I know, I know thats the same as the first loser but as long as I lost to Beverly I'm good with that. Congrats Bev!

I had a lot of help dropping this ball. As much as we talk about food here how come no one pointed out I don't have a link to the Food Truck Park? Well, look again.

Looks like we won't have an election for Mayor this year. Both Council positions and the Mayors slot were filed unopposed so swoosh, They're in. Adios and congratulations to Mayor Vern Johnson. The Citys longest serving Mayor in our 50 plus year history with 10 years service. Just wow.

Here's Tuesday's agenda. See you there?
