This Month - Updates on construction, art exhibit at City Hall, Nereids rides, Garden Club, St. Pat's and Opening at the Ground Zero Museum
Light at End of Tunnel!
The St. Joseph/Jeff Davis/Nicholson area is still a big mess. Our cars and fence are covered with that orange mud that is on the road. However, I do see the light at the end of the tunnel. We have been tied into the new sewer system and I expect to see paving soon.
I have seen workmen at the movie theater and at the pier – at least that’s progress. Hope to have some completion dates by next month. Won’t it be great to have our theater and pier back!

St. Patrick's Day Parade
What's Up Waveland
March 14th will be Waveland Civic Association’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade rolling down Coleman Avenue. We pray that we have the incredible weather that we have had for this parade since it has returned to Coleman. – If you walk by City Hall, you will see our new mosaic created by Elizabeth Veglia and our community, including Waveland Elementary First Grade and Holy Trinity Second and Sixth Grades. The mosaic depicts the St. Patrick’s Day Parade rolling down Coleman Avenue.
Here are some of the things that our visitors have told us: They love the beach. They love to walk on the beach and many of them bring their dogs and are so happy that their dogs are welcome on the beach. They love the food, our relaxed way of living and they think the people are delightful. Hats off to all of us. We really are delightful!
