Welcome to the Higgins Beach Association
Plans for 2021
The Board has finalized the calendar for 2021. It looks more like 2020 than a normal year. This is based on the current State and CDC recommendations. If these recommendations change during the summer the Board will look at the remaining events and decide how to have them.
There will be no public food events in the clubhouse. The Board feels it is too much of a risk since the HBA is not a professional restaurateur and use volunteers to serve. However the Board will try to have Wednesday Doughnuts but it will be takeout only with masks and social distancing required.
The organizational meeting is moved to Monday June 28 and will be held outside on the lawn. It will be a meet and greet the Board members with an opportunity to meet the Board of Directors and offer suggestions and comments.
The Parade is cancelled but HBA will have a Celebration. Members are asked to decorate their homes and yards in a patriotic fashion. Judges will walk around the streets at 4:00PM, accompanied with patriotic music, and award prizes.
The ice cream socials are cancelled, the Craft Fair is cancelled, the silent Auction is cancelled, as well as the Welcome Back pot luck dinner, and appetizer socials.
The annual Meeting is TBD as well as the events in September. Hopefully as late summer arrives and more people are vaccinated and cases in the state decline, All of us can get back to normal.
Look for the annual mailing with your membership form which will have more details on this summer's events.

Bridge starts Monday June 21st, see sidebar on the right for details.
