    Halloween- The Halloween party on Hawksnest/Eaglesnest was a big success. Parents and children dressed in costumes, passed out candy, and in general, had a good time. There were no incidences of seriously bad behavior reported. Thank you to everyone for making this Halloween a great experience for everyone.

    Rain- The rain has saturated the Island. Mini lakes are everywhere. I have received calls regarding the drainage of these lakes. The drainage issue is a function of the City of Corpus Christi. Please report drainage issues to the City. You can report them online or by calling 311. The PIPOA has notified the City of several mini lakes. However, the more reports, the more likely the City is to take action.

    Towing- Over the weekend, five vehicles and four trailers were towed from the boat ramps. You can purchase your vehicle and boat trailer stickers at the PIPOA office located at 14015 Fortuna Bay Drive. The vehicle sticker is $5.00, and the trailer sticker is $10.00.

    Boat Ramp- From time to time, deck and dock builders will place pilings and other construction materials on PIPOA Boat ramps. Subsequently, the builders will remove the pilings and take them to their job site. The builders are required to notify the PIPOA office of their materials at a specific boat ramp. The pile of materials should contain a written notice of whom the materials belong to. However, there are materials on the Gypsy boat ramp that are unidentified. That is, we do not know to whom they belong. The materials have been there for nearly two weeks. If you own them, contact the PIPOA office immediately. At some point, the PIPOA will consider the materials abandoned on private property and will sell them to the highest bidder.

    Board Meeting- The next PIPOA Board meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, December 13, 2022, at 5:30 pm at the Padre Island Baptist Church located across from Whataburger. All PIPOA members are invited to attend.

    La Posada- December 9th will be the boat parade on the North canals, and December 10th will be the boat parade in the South canals. For a full listing of dates and events, go to the La Posada Facebook page.
