The South End Neighborhood Association of Sea Isle City (SENA) seeks all Townsend’s Inlet residents to support the T.I. Civic Center located at 85th Street, in their endeavor to renovate their facilities.
Please send $5 annual membership dues or donations to: 25 72nd Street, payable to T.I. Improvement Association, Treasurer, V. McCaffrey.
SENA has sent a contribution to T.I. in support of their remodeling program. SENA, during 2006, will continue to represent you in all community activities and meetings.
They will also maintain the planting of eight flower tubs at the entrance to the dunes on each street. They request any residents to water and add to entranceways. As they have in the past, SENA will also provide funds for plants to beautify the T.I. Waterfront Park.
If you have any suggestions for improvement, please call 263-4911.
