Lost & Found

If you think you lost anything on the beach, please go to the guard house and see if it’s there. There were several chairs and a cell phone found after the recent storm which are at the guard house.

Golf Cart Parking

Please be sure to park your golf cart in a golf cart space (if it fits) or in a regular parking space. I noticed some golf carts this weekend that weren’t in a space and blocked part of the road. If you have an extended golf cart, please be sure it completely fits in the space. Remember, emergency vehicles and other drivers must navigate the narrow roads.

Comcast Update

Comcast was completing the installation work on Beach Plum on August 11th. They have estimated service would be offered by now. There is no other update on when they will actually offer service. Hopefully, Comcast service will be offered sometime in September.
