Earlier this month Cape Meares residents should have received a letter requesting a donation to support the ongoing activities of the Cape Meares Community Association (CMCA). CMCA has an annual budget of approximately $5,000 and this is our target for the current fundraising effort. Our treasurer, Anita Johanson, announced in the past few days that we are at the half-way point to reaching our goal.
Join the celebration on New Year’s Eve at the Cape Meares Community Center. Festivities begin at 8 PM. Bring along your favorite beverage to drink. Snacks will be supplied by CMCA.
There will be an ongoing Silent Auction at the party. If you like bring along an item or items you wish to contribute to CMCA. This auction is part of the annual fundraising effort of the association.
Remember, CMCA is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Your contributions are deductible. Our tax ID number is 46-5361645.
Cape Meares residents held their annual Christmas/Holiday Celebration on December 12 at Cape Meares Community Center. Delicious food and lively conversation was available with much of the conversation related to earlier days of the week when the access road to Tillamook was cut off due to a washout that occurred on December 9.
On Thursday I hoped on my bicycle during a break in the rain and headed for the blow-out on Bayocean Road that cut us off from access to Bayocean Road. Along the way I stopped to capture some of the damage caused by the multiple landslides along Bayocean and the other spots where I thought a picture might help us all understand the extent of the storm damage.
Residents of Cape Meares will soon be experiencing more changes to their water system – new water meters. Starting around the first week of January, the Oceanside Water District will be installing radio read water meters throughout Cape Meares.
