The 12 Days of Cookies is still running on the blog so check back every day for a new cookie OR just subscribe to the blog and have the cookie recipe come to you as well as Selby news throughout the year. You can find our Selby blog at:
Remember NORAD Santa is now in full swing and beginning on Christmas Eve you'll be able to track Santa's holiday journey. Reindeer food is always a popular treat for kids to make and sprinkle on the lawn on Christmas Eve. Please remember that glitter is harmful to wildlife. Think about substituting colored sugar!
Enjoy your holiday festivities and please be careful when driving to and from parties. Offering to be a designated driver is a gift of a lifetime.
Good Evening Selby!
I'd like to thank everyone who nominated a home for the annual Selby Holiday Lights Contest. This year we will be voting on the Selby blog. There is only one vote per IP address which means you can switch computers, but you can only vote once. You can find the blog at:
The blog covers all the news that is posted on Facebook (i.e. weekly updates) and if you subscribe, then it will send all those updates to you in one handy dandy email. Right now we have the 12 Days of Cookies going on with a new recipe every day!
So go see the blog...subscribe...look at our nominees...and VOTE! Voting ends Midnight, Monday 21 December (I gave a little extra time).
Good evening Selby,
I hope everyone is getting into that holiday spirit! It's kinda hard when you're walking around in shorts and a t-shirt in the middle of December!! I have a few short notes for ya this week.
In trying to get my own holidays rolling as well as taking care of other family business, I have failed to remind everyone of the Selby Holiday Lights contest. Technically, nominations were supposed to end today, BUT I'm going to extend the time until midnight Wednesday. Please send me your house nominations complete with address and picture and category choice (Classic, Childhood Memory or Total Griswold). Thank you to those who have emailed me their nominations. I've been fighting ants in my kitchen and haven't been able to email you back. I will have nominations up on the Selby website and blog by Thursday to open voting. This year we are going to try voting on the blog and only one vote per IP address. I'll tell ya about that later. Right now, get in those nominations! Email: SelbyBay@gmail.com
CLUBHOUSE RENTAL RATES
The rental rates of the clubhouse have increased by $25 as of 1December. The Selby website now reflects those changes.
UGLY SWEATER CONTEST
For some odd reason I didn't write down the winners of this year's Ugly Sweater Winners. Can someone please provide me with names? Thanks!!
That's it for the moment Selby! Have a great week!!
Good evening Selby!
