Water off tomorrow/Cinco De Mayo

HI all,
Don't forget, NID is turning off water Wed am for work.
Did you know that the Stonehouse at foot of Broad/Boulder has been a culinary/restaurant school for the past 2 years. The idea is to teach foster kids the trade, so they are employable when they "age out" of the system. What a great idea. Anyway, this Thurs. they are hosting a Cinco De Mayo dinner starting 6PM. $2 donation at door, and buy your authentic Mexican food to celebrate! Sounds like fun, and what a great cause. The statistics on how many foster children enter a world of poverty due to lack of education after age 18 is shocking. So, you can help by attending this event and extending your support. See you there!
I guess every one is in a "clearing" mode with this great weather. The chain saws are buzzing, I see delivery trucks bringing soil and lumber, etc. Looks like we're all in the mood to clear and beautify. It's important to get all the fallen trees/branches cut and burned or stored to reduce fire danger this summer. Hope all the "vacation home" people will join in soon. Those who live here stay very concerned through the summer/fire season months. We all need to do our part to keep the Shores firesafe. That means tackle that cleanup asap. The county chipper is driving around chipping the stuff you have neatly stacked (stems out towards road). Take advantage!
On that note, if you need help, there is one person on our service provider list who will gladly tackle your yard work. Dusty Hudson is listed. Give him a call! Nice kid, and he works for $12 an hour, and always does a great job. There are 2 tree people listed. Hire local! It save them gas and travel time, and they can give you a great deal.
