We’re sprucing up just for you! While we continue to adhere to MDHHS orders, and help keep everyone safe and healthy, we’ve decided to take this time to freshen up the BIC Center. The concession stand and “Hangout” will be closed for the next few weeks while we work on small capital, maintenance and general clean-up projects. We are diving right in and scraping, painting, cleaning, storing, fixing and shining! We will have limited BIC Center use hours downstairs for internet Monday – Friday from 1:00pm – 3:00pm. When we fully re-open we will be spiffed up, shiny and ready to welcome our island residents and guests. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to seeing you back at the center soon!
Starting Wednesday December 16th our hours will be Monday-Friday 1:00pm – 3:00pm. During this time the only area open will be the welcome center downstairs. The counter will not be open for service but staff will be at the center to answer phone calls and help with information.
Our maintenance work won’t interfere with our participation in the upcoming Christmas Harbor Lights Parade on December 22nd! Santa and Mrs. Clause will be at the BIC Center to greet you with a wave as you make your way down the parade route. You can drop off your wish list and pick up some treats, if you like, out your window as you pass.
We wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season and look forward to seeing you at your Community Center.
