Cape Story’s 12th Annual Spring Fling

Similar to last year, we had to postpone the event one week due to weather.  But we had sunny skies on a Memorial Day weekend and a wonderful event that drew about 80 children and parents for the festivities.  Jared from Astro DJs kept the party shaking with cool tunes and special events.  DeeDee from Bobby the Clown Agency made great balloon animals and painted unique designs on many smiling faces.  All enjoyed hamburgers, hotdogs, and chips courtesy of the Civic Association.  Snow cones and popcorn where graciously provided by LYNN HUME, RE/MAX Allegiance.  Yummy desserts were also brought and shared by neighbors.    Kids of all ages had an out of this world time on the moonwalk, while others competed in various games to try to win gift certificates to AMC theatres.  The kids even managed to beat the adults in a tug-o-war match. 

Event winners were:

  • Hula Hoops – Mia Wallace
  • Belly Ball – Jenifer and Todd Solomon
  • Water Balloon Toss #1 – Rachel Reiss & Haley Reiss
  • Water Balloon Toss #2 – Chris Buca & Alley Wood
  • Sack Race #1 – Elizabeth & Emma Jennings

Oak St Benefit Yard Sale 4/9 – 11

Here’s the new date for the CAPE STORY by the SEA  YARD SALE   to benefit CSBTS neighbors in need:

FRIDAY  10:00 a.m. TO 4:00 p.m. on APRIL 9TH, AND SATURDAY AND SUNDAY APRIL 10-11 th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 2215 Oak Street.

Janet Hollingsworth (contact info. below) will continue to except donations through this date. The response so far has been amazing.

As mentioned at the civic association meeting, we have a couple on Oak Street who are going through a very difficult time and could use our help. Jorge and Stephanie moved into our neighborhood about a year ago. Shortly after their arrival, Stephanie was diagnosed with cancer. Their health insurance from her job had lapsed during the move, and treatment was delayed. She is currently down to 75 lbs, and has a broken hip. She has to deal with a trachea tube and feeding tube, but is still fighting. 
Jorge is a master tiling contractor, but has had little opportunity to work because he is Stephanie’s primary care giver. 
Our neighbor Janet Hollingsworth at 2215 Oak Street is holding a yard sale fund raiser for them the last weekend in March (Saturday is the 27th)  DATE CHANGED DUE TO WEATHER . We would like to spread the word, and ask for any items that might be donated to help these neighbors. 
Janet’s contact information is: 

More help needed for family we aided at Christmas


I received this email from Teri Doddy — 
Teri has agreed to continue to be our champion for this family. 
 TereDod7@aol.com  phone 621-6724 
 and 2219 Bayberry Street
I just got a call today from Tamika (the family we helped at Christmas that had no furniture). She called to let me know her 6 yr old has been in CHKD since 2/11/10 with an absess on the brain and has had 4 brain surgeries. She is still in PIC (ICU). Due to being with her child Tamika has not been able to work the last couple months. She has contacted Social Service which is helping her with her water bill, but out of funds otherwise. Her rent is paid for, but she’s two months behind on her electricity ($473.00) and is in need of items that she cannot buy with food stamps (diapers, toilet paper, shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, dish liquid, etc.). She has received a cut off notice for her electricity for 3/4/10, but has been able to borrow $20 here and there to send to Dominion VA Power so her electricity hasn’t been cut off yet.  
I told her I would see if we could send out an e-mail to CSBTS to see if anyone is willing to help her with any of her needs. I know this is a hard working young lady who has been appreciative of everything CSBTS has done for her. This medical emergency has set her back by not being able to work.  
Please advise if you think we could send out an e-mail. I would be willing to help coordinate the collection and to take items to Tamika if anyone is willing to help.

Update: all pets reunited

Update: All the below animals were reunited with their owners.

Several animals found!

3/20:  Yellow Lab or Golden Retriever, found on Wake Forest St. near Poinciana Dr. Sat 3/20.  He is wearing a tan/brown collar with the name Hobbes on it.  Please call Kevin to claim on 848-3336 up until 5:00 p.m. today (3/20).

3/21: We just found a tailless adorable cat in our outdoor shower. It looks (and smells) like he/she has been there a while. It has fluffy black, grey fur on its back and some legs and a white underbody and white triangle around the mouth area.  It does not have a collar, and although it seems to want to hang out here, it is rather skiddish of us and our dog  (who thinks she has found a new playmate).  I can be reached at 617-6277.

3/22:  A huge, grey, domestic rabbit was found on Oak St. Bayside.  Please call Elyse – 412-0644 to claim.
