Good Afternoon Selby!
Sorry about not doing an update this week. Just like everyone else, I was getting into the school and sports routine. I did want to update everyone on the Howl-At-The-Moon event this Saturday.
Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, the pig will be not be able to attend. We had some scheduling conflicts with the pig dude, but he will be bringing some meats and that will be available around 7pm. In that case we are going to alter the time just a bit and have everyone start bringing stuff down around 6pm. It's just an hour later. No sweat!
A BIG thank you to everyone who has signed up to the potluck! I REALLY appreciate it!! If you haven't yet, then please do! The link is:
There is a separate sign up if you would like to bring some games. This is not mandatory. It is just to let folks know what is being brought down in case they are looking for something to bring too or if they would like to offer up decor or torches.
5:oopm - Setting up. If you have any decorations you would like to donate then please bring them down.
6:00pm - If you are donating food items or games, then come on down and set them up and stay while folks meander in.
6:30ish - Official start time
See ya then!!

Selby Beach Gate Security
If you are interested in sitting on the gate at the beach, then please email me with your name and email address.

Selby's end of summer bash! Howl-At-The-Moon! Join us on Saturday, 29 August 2015 from 5pm to 11pm. We're counting on you to sign up and add to our potluck.
Games, decor, etc. donations:
Calling all volunteers!! We are looking for a few folks to help sit on the beach gate and check parking stickers. Word has gotten out that Selby Beach is a public beach and folks from all over are innocently hopping over to relax. It has now become a problem and we need to step up security, but we need some people-power!! We have put together a sign up to sit on the gate in 2-hour shifts. It's not a lot of time, but would make a huge difference to our community. Here are the details:
Dates: 14 August through 13 September
Fridays - 6pm to 8pm
Saturdays and Sundays - 11am to 7pm
Selby Residents only.
Sign up for a shift that fits your schedule!!
Good morning Selby,
It's been a while since I've put out an update. The summer is going by REALLY quick! I've altered the final summer activity plans yet again. I apologize. I'm trying to get over a cold and I'm just exhausted. We'll have 2 final activities this summer ~ one this Wednesday and one next Wednesday. We are still meeting for our summer reading club every Monday to turn in times.
* Selby Summer Reading - 5:00pm to 6:00pm
This Monday will be an extended time since we are helping Edgewater Books collect school supplies to help our local schools (meaning the South River cluster schools). You can still turn in your hours and grab a new sheet, but we will also have a table set up for folks to drop off supplies.
* SCA Board Meeting - 7:00pm
* Selby Tots - (9:30am - 11:00am)
* Airplanes! Summer Activity - 2:00pm - 3:00pm
* Key cards, parking stickers and boat keys - 7:00pm - 9:00pm
* Community center reservations - 7:00pm - 9:00pm
* Paddle boarding - 6:30pm
*1st Friday Happy Hour - 7:00pm
Friday's happy hour will be at the beach. We need to soak up the nice weather while we can! The community center will not be open so don't forget to bring your key fobs!
** Tonight at the Selby community center during the Selby summer reading program, we will be collecting for the Edgewater Books school supply drive for needy students. Let's really show them what Selby can do and don't forget they gave us our Little Library that we love so much. Let's show our support! This is our regular summer reading night, so you will be able to turn in your hours and pick up another sheet. I will also have new books out to look through as well as information on the Selby Youth Book Club that will start in September. Target has some really great sales on school supplies AND you can text "School to Target" to the number 827438 and you'll be sent a link for a $5 coupon (expires 8/8) when you spend $25 in school supplies. The kids need our help! The schools REALLY appreciate these supplies. It really isn't too much money and who doesn't love school supply shopping!!!
** Howl-At-The-Moon - The Selby end-of-summer bash is Saturday, 29 August from 5:00pm to 11:00pm. We'll be celebrating the end of summer under the light of the full moon! A pig roast is already being arranged, but we need some culinary help from our Selby chef masters!! Here's the sign up for the potluck:
We are also in need of decoration and games/entertainment in the form of torches or cornhole or horseshoes and things of that nature. You may bring them by during set up (4:30) and grab them on your way out. We really appreciate the loan! Here's the sign up for decor and games:
One last thing, I'm looking for music - bands/DJs - that would be interested in playing that night. Please email me at SelbyBay@gmail.com.
** Calling all those that have been interested in the Neighborhood Watch Program! Here is your first call of duty. We are starting sign ups for teams to sit on the gate at the beach. The job is simple: grab some chairs or a tent or the back of a truck or pick-up and stop all those who attempt to enter. Only folks with a parking sticker may have entrance to the beach. Walkers must be a resident of Selby. Check out the sign up and see if there is a good time for you!!
I think that's about it for now! Have a good week!
