National Flood Insurance Program Extended through July

On March 23rd, President Trump signed the $1.3 trillion omnibus funding package that not only avoided a federal government shut down, but also extended the National Flood Insurance Program through July 31st. 

Lawmakers must work through details of the reauthorization prior to that date since Congress traditionally recesses for the month of August - the peak of the hurricane season.

Re-CYCLE BHI Update

Island residents all pitched in last Saturday to make Re-CYCLE BHI's first bicycle collection day a big success. Over 160 bikes have been loaded onto the Bald Head Island Club's truck for delivery to the Bicycle Man Project in Fayetteville and eventual refurbishment and distribution to those in need.

Re-CYCLE plans more events for the future, but reminds residents that used bicycles can be deposited in container 14, next to the small green building behind the contractor's parking lot. For more information contact Anne Rex ( anne.e.rex@hotmail.com) or Gayle Sanders ( gaylesanders@mail.com).

Re-CYCLE, a mission project of the Village Chapel, wishes to thank all the many organizations and businesses that have contributed to this project, including the BHI Club; BHI Limited, Shipping and Receiving and Tram Services; BHI Stage I and Stage II Associations; Island Hardware; the Maritime Market; Riverside Adventure; the Village of Bald Head Island, Public Works and Contractor Facilities; and Wendy Wilmot Properties.
