We are happy to visit with you on such a gorgeous Friday. Just wanted to check in with all of you and provide a few pieces of news you might like to know about. Hope you are all well and having fun this summer so far. Here we go:
UPCOMING EVENTS & SOME NEWS
THIS SUNDAY, July 9th: The 46th Annual Sand Sculpture Contest, Walnut Beach, Registration starts at 8:15 a.m., FREE
Grab your shovels and your beach buckets on Sunday and have some fun at the 46th Annual Sand Sculpture event. All ages and skill levels welcome. Start building your creation at low tide (expected around 11:00 a.m.). Then the fun begins as all kinds of creatures, items, castles, and things you might not even find on the beach start to appear! Judging will begin at 12:30; awards at 1:00 p.m. Even if you don’t want to participate, this is a wonderful family-style event where it’s fun to just walk along the beach and observe. One thing: remember to bring sunscreen and a water bottle … it’s gonna be hot and sunny out there! Have fun!
Call 2-1-1 for Available Cooling Centers over the Weekend
If you’ve been watching the news for the past few days, we are expecting the next few days to be brutally hot. If you (or an elderly relative or friend or neighbor) need to find a place to get cool, the answer is quickly accessible by dialing 2-1-1. They will provide all of the cooling centers available in the area. If those don’t work, just think about visiting places that have air conditioning – such as the movie theaters, the public library, or the mall. As we said in the post above, make sure you hydrate; carry a water bottle with you everywhere! Stay cool, friends.
