June President Article

 

Welcome to the summer season.  I hope that each family enjoys some downtime together and that our community is able to come together and socialize.   I hope to see everyone out at the community’s playground and beach, as these are great assets and really serve as anchors for our community’s culture – built of family and enjoying each other.  To be courteous to all neighbors, please review the rules for the beach and playground, which can be located on our website, https://capearthur.org/. Also, school is out starting this week, so there will be more children on bicycles and walking/running through the community.  Please exercise caution when driving, especially on Sunset and Giddings, where it is easy to pick up speed. 

In a couple of weeks, the Community Olympics commence.  If you didn’t participate in the past Olympics, please consider joining an event or team.  There are so many different sports/events to include kayaking, running, biking, tennis, golf, swimming, softball, cornhole, cooking, baking and more.   There is a Facebook page for our Olympic Teams and supporters (https://www.facebook.com/groups/427486073938443/).  Come out and cheer on your neighbors or join and have fun!  Here, we compete against other surrounding communities, and it really is a great time (win or lose).

Lastly, if you are a member of Facebook, I encourage you to join the Cape Arthur community page, https://www.facebook.com/capearthurcommunity/?fref=ts.  So many people rely on social media, and this will help us communicate more effectively and efficiently regarding community events.

Enjoy your summer!

Tom Kearney, President
