It’s a Wrap


At about 4:30 PM on Wednesday, August 6, the re-siding project of our beloved Cape Meares Community Center was completed.  Mostly.  Only a few odds and ends remain to completely wrap up the project that began about two years ago with a fund-raising effort.

This renovation was achieved because of the volunteer efforts of many individuals.  The dollars contributed were significant and necessary for purchasing the materials needed, but the volunteer efforts were equally important.  The effort was primarily “do it yourself.” DIY projects don’t always turn our as we would like, but if you take a look at the finished project you will have to agree that it looks like it was completed by professionals.  That’s because two professionals, Chris Spence and Randy Klobas, were the ones who guided the volunteers throughout the process.

We now have a refurbished community center we can all be proud of and one that will continue to be an important hub of activities for many years to come.

Well done Cape Meares residents!

Culvert Repair Planned


Bob Garrigues, local Cape Meares resident and member of the Tillamook County Road Advisory Committee, forwarded information that may be of interest regarding our exit route to Tillamook.

In a meeting of the committee today, August 4, there was discussion regarding a new sleeve that will be added to the culvert under the dike road out of Cape Meares Lake.

The work is scheduled to be begin on Wednesday, August 13.  Crews will be onsite and heavy equipment will be involved.  Expect delays in the work area on this date.  No word on how much time will be required for the repair.

At the May CMCA meeting Keith Johanson indicated several local Tillamook churches would be supporting the efforts of 24 college students to raise money for cancer research and asked whether the Cape Meares community residents would like to join in the fund-raising event by providing a potluck lunch for the riders plus another 10 support staff when they arrive in Cape Meares at approximately 10 AM on August 6.   The response from those who were attending the meeting was most positive.
