Happy New Year! It is 2021 already! It seems like time is moving so slowly but hopefully some are beginning to get the vaccine and some kids are returning to school. We just pray for the health and safety of all our community. The Clubhouse has been dark, and lonesome for community gatherings, blood drives, movies, etc.
If you are in the middle of a rainy day, I suggest you watch the IBIC Holiday Stunt Night, check out www.98342.org. There is a lot of talent in this community. It will be running until the end of January, please watch until the end. There is a great weather montage of pictures from Tim Celeski’s weather cam.
We were prompt in sending out dues forms this year! Thanks to so many of you who have been so quick to return them! This is one of the only forms of income the club is experiencing besides our little merchandise store. Colleen is doing such a great job organizing and creating new products – she made all the glass ornaments and donated them to the IBIC! We would like to look into running an online store. Would any local person like to share their knowledge with us? We know it can be done, we just aren’t very computer literate. Please contact me and we can talk!
We have set the date for Indianola Days 2021; July 24th. The low tide is a great one; -3.2 at 11:40 AM. Let’s hope we will be able to hold the event this year, it will be dependent on COVID-19 and safety. We will keep our fingers crossed!
Congratulations to Rob and Tia Trueb for all their years running the Indianola Country Store and welcome to Rachel and Greg Trueb as the new owners. They have made a few changes already. If you are taking items to the beach, please pack them out! If you are collecting items you find on the beach and would like to put them in the garbage or recycling, please contact me and we can meet at the dumpsters on the side of the Clubhouse. We appreciate the people who help keep our beach clean!
Thanks to the group working on the beach issues. This might be a rewarding experience! Also, thanks to the patient people who wait in line at the Post Office, I think most of us have figured it out and it feels safe. While you wait in line, check out the bed by the door – things are sprouting! My beautiful orange witch hazel is blooming! Spring is coming…..
