I hope everyone has been enjoying their summer. It’s great to see the beaches full of neighbors playing corn hole, fishing, crabbing, grabbing a snack from the beach shack or just relaxing.
You may have recently be seeing a lot of people with Golden Beach t-shirts or cups. There are several different designs and more to come. Thanks to some generous neighbors, the sales of these shirts has been a profitable fundraiser for BEMACO with 100% of the labor and sales being donated. Stop by the Beach Shack to see the latest selection.
We have a couple improvement projects happening that should be finishing up soon and we are excited to start enjoying.
First off is the pier at Trent Hall. This project has been in the works for some time but now and will be completed by early August with the dedication and grand opening scheduled for shortly there after. The kayak launch that was donated by our Civic Association will be reinstalled and BEMANCO is installing a picnic table for people to enjoy a day of crabbing and relaxing at our new pier. Thank you to all the volunteers who gave up their time to make this happen.
The next project is the completion of the fire pit at Long Point. We are very excited about this because it was at very little cost to BEMANCO. We had most of the supplies for this project donated and thanks to some wonderful neighbors and board members who volunteered their labor and gave up their weekends to complete it. We are looking forward to the cooler weather to start enjoying some community bonfires.
The parking lot at Benson's Boat ramp has been been enlarged and new millings installed. All the topsoil removed from Benson's has been relocated to Long Point to even out the low lying areas. Thanks to all the volunteers for completing these projects.
If you would like to get involved with any improvement in the beach please drop us an email and we will reach out to you as projects pop up. As you know BEMANCOs main concerns are the upkeep of all the beaches and ensuring they are only used by neighbors and their guests.
I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable rest of their summer.
