Drop by the BIC Center this week to get in the Christmas spirit.  We’ve decked the halls and have plenty of Christmas events planned.  This weekend our Christmas at the Movies series gets under way with The Polar Express at 3. Remember, to hear the sleigh bells you have to believe.  That’s our theme for the month.  At 7, our feature presentation is Elf.  Christmas movies will continue throughout the month with everyone’s favorite cartoons, Christmas classics and more.  Check out the details on our full movie listing by clicking here.

On December 20th, Beaver Island Community School students will present their traditional Christmas Program at 7.  There is also rumor that Santa and Mrs. Clause will be in town and possibly stop by the Community Center to chat with the Island’s young ones. If we find this rumor to be true and when this could happen, we’ll be sure to let you know!  And Christmas Eve,  WVBI will be tracking Santa’s progress with their newly installed Mega Santa Tracker Radar 2020™.  It’s state of the art.

Please remember that we’ve switched to our off-season hours, so on Mondays through Fridays the BIC Center is open from 9am-5pm and 9 to 9 on Saturdays.  Regular events include the Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program upstairs in “Carol’s Hangout” on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 to 11, Pickle Ball on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 to noon and Games Galore on Thursdays from 1 to 4.  And, throughout the winter, Dawn George with the Council on Aging (COA) will be providing arthritis services and senior meal coupons from her office upstairs from 9am-2pm (weekdays).

Oh, and the winner of the 2018 Kubota Raffle?  Angel Welke takes home the vehicle, but the entire island wins because all of the proceeds go to support programs here at the BIC Center and on WVBI. We thank the entire community for their support of PABI, the Beaver Island Community Center and our community radio station WVBI.
