Welcome to the Higgins Beach Association
Transition Summer 2021 Underway
The first events of this summer have begun. The Welcome Back Meet and Greet event on the lawn was a success. It replaced the Welcome Back Pot Luck Supper but still maintained the Welcome Back social aspect. See below for more information on this event.
The first Doughnut Breakfast is underway as of this writing. People lined up to come in and get their doughnuts and drinks just like always, except for this transition summer there is no seating in the clubhouse. See below for more information on this event.
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.
There are two concerts on the lawn scheduled for July. Don Campbell is scheduled for Tuesday July 13 and Jimmy Micisso is scheduled for Tuesday July 27.
Check the Calendar Page for the latest schedule events.

July 4th Reverse Parade
Flags and bunting adorned many homes on Higgins Beach this July 4th. Although there was no normal parade this year we did have a reverse parade celebration where the judges went around looking at how people interpreted this year's theme "Summertime Fun In Twenty-One". The results of the judging and photos can be found here.
The first doughnut breakfasst of 2021 ws held on Wednesday June 30. From outside the clubhouse it looked liked a normal event with a line of people waiting to get in and partake of doughnuts from the Cookie Jar. Once they got to the door, it wsn't a normal event. They were asked to put on masks. Masks were available to those who didn't have one. They were let in to the clubhouse in groups and went to the doughnut station to select their doughnuts. The person with the money stepped over to the payment station to pay and then on to the beverage station for coffee or juice box. Then it was out the back door to eagerly devour the delicious doughnuts. A few photos are on the Gallery Page.
Welcome Back Meet and Greet
Welcome Back event was held on Monday evening June 28 on the lawn. Normally we would have had a Welcome Back pot luck supper and a sandwich/silent auction event. But in this transition year we decided on an outside social event. it was good to see our friends and neighbors in a social setting again. HBA provided wine and Tony's dessert squares. Feedback from those who attended was positive, so maybe we can convince the Board to have another one later this summer. A few photos of this event are on the gallery page.
