The CoffeePot Bayou Watershed Alliance (CBWA) does quarterly Clean-up work on
Snell Isle, Coffee Pot Bayou and the public waterfront – on land and sea - south to the
Dali Museum. With each event, a volunteer “all-call” to 100+ volunteers where the
scope of work is outlined which we hope to complete. From Oak St NE to Turtle Creek
through Coffee Pot Park down Coffee Pot Blvd and NorthShore Drive to the Dali on the
waterfront we utilize motorboats, kayaks, bikers and walkers with volunteers deploying
supplies from Keep Pinellas Beautiful that include shovels, rakes, clippers, nippers,
buckets, barley bags, etc. to optimize our time and work.
The City supplies a large dumpster where vast amounts of debris collected from the
Bayou, Tampa Bay and the sidewalk is collected. With the exception of one landscape
contractor partner, it is all volunteer work. This contractor removes from the waterfront
a large quantity of Brazilian Pepper, Carrotwood, Silk Floss trees, Reclinata Palms in
addition to weeds and vines. These volunteer opportunities provide a perfect
opportunity to make some great headway and also cultivate new friendships with like-
The CBWA’s upcoming Clean-up dates for 2023 are September 9 th and November 4 th (9:00 AM - Noon)

We had eight new palm trees installed along Snell Isle Boulevard in the park in front of the Vinoy this week. Look for more details on the project in the June Panther, but wanted you to know that you are not seeing things...there really are new trees there.
Thanks to all who worked on this project and for those who have joined the Snell Isle Property Owners Association by paying dues (you can join on the Snell Isle website!). That allows us the opportunity to afford to take on beautification efforts like this.

Santa made a brief stop at Snell Isle last night. So many families came by in anticipation of getting a few minutes with the jolly man in red. And there were the photo opps. So many of them. We had grandparents snapping pictures on their phones, parents bringing reluctant children forward, many kids who bravely sat on Santa's lap and those who felt more comfortable approaching the jolly fellow from behind.
Many enjoyed cookies, egg nog and hot chocolate while they waited to see the seasonal star. We saw some decorated golf carts and many festive outfits.
Thanks to the SIPOA Board for coordinating this event, and for those of you who came out to participate. The Board wishes everyone a wonderful Holiday, wherever you are and whenever you are celebrating.

Want to leave a legacy in the community you love? Snell Isle homeowners are now able to purchase a commemorative or memorial engraved brick for installation at the fountain area at the main Snell Isle entrance.
This Snell Isle Property Owners Association (SIPOA) brick fundraiser will support many beautification projects including; replacement of the shrubs in the parkway area in front of the Vinoy. A future planned project is the placement of a Snell Isle sign near Overlook Park - crossing the bridge from Shore Acres to Snell Isle.
The laser engraved bricks cost $135 each and last a lifetime. You can commemorate or memorialize a special person, family, pet, occasion, or achievement.
Engrave a commemorative brick in your name or the name of a loved one,
honor a soldier or veteran, honor a firefighter or police officer, in memory of a special person in your life, honor a teacher or student, recognize your school or church, mark a special date in your life (graduation, birthday, baptism, communion, anniversary, or wedding)

You've likely noticed the political yard signs popping up around town. Our neighbor, Bonnie Hargrett, has once again currated some helpful reources for us to review prior to the August election:
As you likely know, our next election is August 23rd. Florida is a Closed Primary State meaning if you are a registered Democrat, you will receive the Democratic ballot. Likewise, if you are a registered Republican, you will receive the Republican ballot. There is also the NonPartisan (neither party) races which will be included on both ballots. If you are not registered to either party, you will still be given the Nonpartisan ballot to vote on Judges, School Board candidates. At-Large State and County Commission races. If you’d like to review the candidates on each of these, click this link below...
To get other information regarding your voting status, address information, precinct information, etc., go to this link…
Stay informed and make sure you know which candidates in each election represent your views whether the race is Nonpartisan or not. Again, all Judges and School Board candidates are Nonpartisan, representing neither party.
