|[updated 9/6] Help the Townsends Inlet Civic Center! As you may know, the City now levies taxes on the TI Civic Center. In order to pay taxes and pay for ongoing repairs and maintenance, the volunteers who keep the Center open are holding two fundraisers. The cornerstone of the new fundraiser is a gift basket that includes a handmade wooden Lifeguard Boat replica. For details, see the TICC page. Note: if you ordered a gift basket and haven't yet received it, no worries -- they're working on it (and didn't cash your check). The baskets are labor intensive to make, and there is a backlog. That backlog is also affecting the cashing of South End Neighborhood Association checks.|

George Marinari, Jr., passed on July 25. George's family, SIC, and SICTA's Board of Directors suffered a great loss. RIP, George. Obituary. [Webmaster's note: my fondest memories of George include the times he made me laugh during a boring/contentious/boring-and-contentious meeting. The only time he wasn't smiling is when he was slipping in a dry "one-liner" bit of humor.]
