This is going to be a busy month and a quick one too! Everyone is hustling and bustling around. Be sure to stop...breathe...and ENJOY your holiday. That's what it's for right? Family...friends...things that really matter. Now that I think about it...if you see me out-and-about, then make sure you remind me too! I am guilty! Seriously, it's good to get out for mere enjoyment and what better place to go than your own community. Good peeps. Ya can't beat the drive! Kids are always welcome.
Let's start out by celebrating "National 'Hi' Neighbor Month". What a perfect theme for this month! Stop by the community center on Friday, 6 December and say "Hi neighbor!". Bring your own snacks and refreshments and just chill from the work week. This month we will have a Zumba instructor giving a demo for a class being held starting 8 January. If you like what you see, then register then and there! Just a little FYI, ya know this will be good for your New Year's Resolution and it's closer than a gym.
On Sunday, 8 December the Woodland Beach Volunteer Fire Department will be driving Santa around for their annual toy drive. This year they will stop at the community center only. Please bring new, wrapped toys labelled with age appropriate group, gender and size. They are also collecting gently used coats, hats, mitten/gloves and nonperishable food item. The fire department will enter Selby at 6:30pm so I suggest being at the community center a little early. Please park on the sides of the parking lot so that the firetruck has plenty of room to pull and around.
The Selby Holiday Home contest is in full swing. I do realize that most folks don't have lights up, but you have until the 21st to get nominations in. Email pictures to SelbyBay@gmail.com and DON'T FORGET TO INCLUDE THE HOUSE ADDRESS. Pictures will be posted on the website and the SCA Board will vote on their favorites. Winners will be announced on 23 December.
Do you like to sing? Would you like to go caroling? We are forming a caroling group for the holidays. The group will perform on two evenings and, hopefully, at Santa-At-The-Beach. Please email SelbyBay@gmail.com ASAP if you are interested. We need to get this going quickly.
Finally, stop by the website and see the cookie of the day! I'm going to try (you know how that goes) to post a cookie recipe a day through December. As always, if you have any questions, then please email me at SelbyBay@gmail.com.
