There's a lot going on in Selby this month! I hope to see everyone at either one or ALL of our functions. Keep in mind that all Selby events rely on the help of volunteers. If there is an opportunity to volunteer or donate, then please do. We truly appreciate it and it makes the events nicer for everyone!
1st Friday Happy Hour - 6 December
The theme for this month is "National 'Hi' Neighbor Month"! Come out to the community center from 7:00pm until 9:00pm to say "Hi Neighbor!". Bring your own snacks and refreshments and bring along the kiddos as well. This is a great opportunity to chat with friends and meet some new neighbors. We're going to have a special Zumba demo this month! Have ya wanted to try it? Can you feel the holidays just building up behind that belt? This may be a great opportunity for ya and HEY! classes start after the New Year so you can hop on that Resolution Train to Skinny Town! You can not only get more information at the happy hour BUT you can also sign up!!
Firehouse Santa - 8 December
Every year Woodland Beach Volunteer Fire Department chauffeurs Santa around Selby. For some odd reason SOMETHING always happens. Either they come in from the back of the neighborhood and the times are shifted or it's FREEZING or it's raining. We can't predict the weather, but we can make it a little easier on our fire department friends. Firehouse Santa is a wonderful event that distributes toys and warm clothing to local families in need. They need YOUR help though!
Bring a new, wrapped toy with you labelled with age appropriate group, gender and size. They also will be accepting gently used coats, hat, mittens/gloves and nonperishable food items.
Firehouse Santa enters Selby at 6:30pm. I highly recommend being there a bit early. Also, park to the sides of the parking lot so the firetruck can get in and out safely.
Geminid Meteor Shower - 13 December
The Geminid Meteor shower is the most prolific of all the meteor showers during the year. Meteors, shooting stars, are quite frequent and some can be quite large and bright. It's a night full of wishes! The community center will be open from 8:00pm until 10:00pm for those who would like to view the meteors from the beach.
This event rests in Mom Nature's hands. It will be cancelled due to rain or cloud cover. Cancellation will be announced here and on Facebook.
Santa-At-The-Beach - 15 December
As always, Santa will be making his way to Selby on 15 December. He'll arrive at the community center at 11:00am and stay until 12:30 for wish lists and pictures. We will enjoy a potluck lunch and cap off the afternoon with a reading of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas at 1:30pm.
In order to make this event a success, we need the support and donations of the community. Please sign up for the potluck at the link below. If you would like to bring something and it is not listed, then please email me at SelbyBay@gmail.com.
Movie Night - 20 December
We'll be playing a double feature this month! Beginning at 6:00pm, we will show "How The Grinch Stole Christmas" for the little ones. At 7:00pm, we will show "It's a Wonderful Life".
Bring your own chairs and blankets to spread across the floor. Chips and sodas will be offered for sale for $1 each.
