26th Annual Grapeview
Water & Art Festival

FESTIVAL RECAP!

SATURDAY JULY 27, 2019 - Fair Harbor Marina 

The Grapeview Water and Art Festival, hosted at Fair Harbor Marina, celebrated their 26th annual event, showcasing 48 booths of artists and craft designers selling paintings, poster art, jewelry, ceramics, wood crafts, sculptures, photography, soaps, glass, fabric arts and much more.    

Festivities kicked off at 10:00 AM and included various free kids activities.  Face painting and a children’s craft area, where kids could build and paint boats, airplanes and other neat items was a bit hit!  The annual fishing derby and golf hole-in-one contest were also very popular.  Attendees also enjoyed live music throughout the day!    

The Food (of course) which has become a great tradition over the years, included hamburgers, hot dogs, corn on the cob, steamed clams, shrimp cocktails, toasted cheese sandwiches, drinks and of course our famous homemade cobblers!    

As with all GCA events, proceeds from the Water & Art Festival go back into the community through various projects and organizations supported by the community association.

"Prepare in a Year"

Disasters can happen anytime and anywhere, so are you prepared?  The consequences of a disaster are largely preventable.  One hour of "Disaster Preparedness Activity" each month will help you be ready for disasters -  wherever they occur and whatever they are.

One of GCA's goals for 2019 is to help our members to "Prepare in a Year".  As with any goal, preparing for a disaster can seem like a monumental task.  The goal is to be easy and as inexpensive as possible.  Our August Focus is "Utility Management". 

Did you know that in an earthquake and shortly thereafter, the worst damage is often caused not by the shaking itself, but by gas or propane leaks, broken water pipes, and damaged electrical systems? Fires and flooding are the two most common indirect effects of disasters. Not only can they destroy an otherwise-okay home or business, but they can be prevented. 

Knowing how to shut off your utilities is crucial in a disaster. Do you know where your electrical, gas or propane, and water shut-offs are? Do you know how to shut them off? How about turning them back on? Follow the link to our August Focus which will give you valuable safety tips on when to shut your utilities off, and how to safely turn them back on. Check it out!
