PRESIDENTS REPORT

 

The neighborhood continues to see a lot of growth. Many new homes are popping up and new neighbors are moving in. Let’s all welcome our new neighbors and do our part to keep our community desirable, safe and fun.

 

Unfortunately, we have been unable to have our usual open meetings, but our board members, staff and volunteers have safely provided the needed services to keep our community going. Thanks to Carolynne, the office has remained open for our Shorecrest residents. You can also contact the office or board via email or our website. Your input is important to keep our community moving in the right direction.

 

With our warm, dry summer it was wonderful to be able to have the pool open again for the season. Thanks to Teresa Holcomb and her pool staff for providing us another fun, safe, swimming season. This last year we replaced our old playground equipment with a new fun center which includes more challenging adventures for our kids in the neighborhood. Elliott has been kept busy overseeing our park improvements which includes more grass to mow and weeds to pull now that the new sprinkler system and landscaping projects have been completed around the pool. It looks great and will get better each year as our new plants grow.

 

Have a great year! Mike

 

 

Shorecrest Yoga and Dance for all ages

 

South Sound Yoga and Wellness Group (SSYWG) is a Washington State registered non-profit corporation. Its mission is to promote healthy lifestyles in our communities through activities that nurture physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. The organization has been established in the Shorecrest Community since 2017. Before the pandemic, the members used to meet at Pam’s studio at 21 E Orchard Lane for yoga. Since the pandemic, the classes have been changed to meeting on Zoom teleconferences. Pam and Johanna (both certified yoga teachers) offer yoga classes six days a week and Sasha Savino, a retired ballet dancer from the Moscow Ballet Company and a ballet teacher in the United States, offers beginner ballet classes for adults and children (nine years and above) once a week and intermediate ballet classes once a week. All three of the teachers are residents of Shorecrest. The classes are free but donation is much appreciated to cover expenses and fifty percent of all donations go to The Saints Pantry Food Bank in Shelton. Everyone is welcome. Please log on to www.ssywg.org to view class schedule. If you have any questions, please contact Pam at This email address is being protected from spambots.

How can we improve our neighborhood?

 

There are a number of ways we all can help protect and improve our neighborhood just by doing our part. Here are a few things we all should do:

 

*Keep your yards neat and tidy

 

*Keep parties and noise to a reasonable level that does not disturb your neighbors

 

*Know what your kids are up to, they can create mischief if unsupervised

 

*Keep our parks and neighborhood clean, safe, and beautiful by disposing of trash in proper receptacles

 

* Comply with our Shorecrest community Rules and Regulations

 

*Pay your dues timely

 

*Call 911 for help in emergencies and report any concerns to the Shorecrest office

 

With your help we can make our community better!!

 

 

 

Shorecrest Events

 

A great part of our community gatherings in Shorecrest are the events and activities we provide.

Due to the continued covid pandemic, we have had to cancel many of our usual meetings and events, but with the warmer weather we were able to have some great outdoor gatherings. Memorial weekend was celebrated at the pool with a hot dog and chili party. We followed that with another pool party and barbeque on the 4th of July and in August we celebrated with a “Shorefest Fiesta” picnic at the park which included our giant waterslide and live music.

 

We hope to be able to continue with events again this coming year, weather and covid permitting. For future events, watch for signs at the Shorecrest entrances, clubhouse, emails and also online.

Volunteers to help with these events are always welcome! Just contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or Carolynne in the office.

 

Cheers! Marcia

 

 

Community Garden

 

 

 

Did you see the cover crop growing over the Community Garden?  The cereal rye, Austrian winter peas, and hairy vetch enrich our soil with much needed nitrogen and other nutrients.  In February 2022, BCP delivered 15 yards of compost to the garden.  It was spread over the cover crop to ensure the layer of 'green manure' decays in place and adds to the soil's structure and richness.  Since we need to add more depth to our garden, these layers of organic materials will help develop the rich soil base of our garden. The garden is nearly ready for March planting! 

 

In January we ordered seeds from Uprising Seeds located in Bellingham, WA.  These seeds are adapted to the Pacific Northwest and have a greater likelihood of doing well in our climate.  We added a few more veggies and more varied flowers to increase the pollinators, too.  I hope you have noticed the herb garden located on the Parkway Blvd. side of the garden.  Barbara DePirro has really created an addition to the garden that is essential.  As you know she offers packets of dried herbs to our Wednesday markets during the summer, Barbara designed and created the brick enclosed herb garden along the length of the Community Garden not just for the beauty (which it is) but also for the flavor and nutrient factor.   We are hopeful the bulk of these herb offerings will begin to be gathered from our own herb garden as they grow larger and fill out over time.

 

We are hopeful that the water line will be moved up to the top of the slope this April and that we can then begin the work of designing a more efficient watering/drip system. 

 

 

 

 

Last season, Ray Mayfield and Susan Hanson gave longer hoses and splitters that greatly increased the efficiency of our primitive watering system.  We are so grateful for their generosity.  

 

I am truly grateful for the dedicated watering and weeding teams of the Connie West Community Garden Committee.  Thanks to this group,

the garden successfully made it through temperatures over 100

degrees and was more productive than the year before.  Each year we hope to bring not only produce to our little Bus Depot Wednesday Market, but to enhance our Shorecrest Community with the beauty and calm only gardens can bring.

We have plenty of work for all who would like to join the team.   When working in the community garden, we require masks, distancing, and that you bring your own tools for now.  For the most part, we are senior citizens and we need to continue to protect ourselves and others as the number of cases remain high in Mason County.
