We've built our new building. We've celebrated it's opening. A few folks have gotten to party in our new building. Now we're embarking on the holiday season where the WHOLE community can get together and have a little fun! As with everything, kinks need to be ironed out and processes need to be honed and patience is indeed a virtue. Please keep in mind, especially during the holiday season, that this community association is run by volunteers. They do not get paid. They stay up late nights. They take time away from their families. Many have jobs. They try very hard to bring the community together and make this the best neighborhood they can. Thank you to them all!
With that being said, our socials for the remainder of the year have been scheduled. Socials will be scheduled every 3 months so check back here in January for events happening in the beginning of the year. Check the calendar for dates, times and specifics. I would like to take a moment to relay a few repeating socials that we will have throughout the year.
First, SignUp Genius. We will be using SignUp Genius for donations and volunteering. It's a great tool that keeps the social chair organized and it sends out reminders. Please sign up for an account!
Who doesn't love movies?! Movies will be family friendly. Snacks and drinks will be made available at a small cost. We encourage everyone to hit the snack bar since the money raised will go towards funding other social events. Please bring blankets and chairs so that you're comfortable. Blankets and sleeping bags can be spread out on the floor. Make yourself comfortable!
1st Friday Happy Hours
Friday is a great time to kick back and decompress from the work week. Families are invited down to just hang out and spend some time in the community center. There are no sign ups and everyone brings there own snacks and drinks. If you're feeling nice, then bring something to share. Usually there will be a theme just for fun. If you'd like to be creative, then bring a snack to share with everyone that fits the theme! Happy hours will generally be on the 1st Friday of every month unless it falls after Halloween like it does this year. Times are 7:00pm to 9:00pm.
If you have any questions regarding social events or even if you have some ideas, then please email Tracie D'Angelo at SelbyBay@gmail.com. Please keep in mind that we are beginning a process and we listen to all ideas even though it may take some time to fulfill them. Baby steps. ;)
