Celebrate by the Seaside
Saturday, July 21
    
Join us this Saturday, from 6 to 8 PM, on the KBIA lawn for our eleventh annual Seaside Celebration. This night unites the "older" members of this KBIA community (21 and older, please), and gives us a chance to catch up and enjoy the beautiful setting by the cove. All are welcome, so invite your friends and family, partake in some cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, and have a good time!
 
 Auction items available to bid on at the Seaside include:
 
1) One parking space for the 2019 season -- convenient to your favorite summer enrichment program and one of the best beaches around!
 
2) Pool party at the KBIA pool for up to 20 swimmers for before the end of the 2019 season. 
 
3) A private hot dog roast and s'mores on the beach for up to 10 -- sit back and enjoy as KBIA staff provides the food and fun!
 
4) A beautiful floral display arranged by Fleurant
 
We also will be accepting donations for our scholarships.  These scholarships go to local children so they can attend KBIA for a fulfilling summer they otherwise would not have the chance to attend.
 
If you would like to bid on any auction item but cannot attend the Seaside, please contact Martin Lodish.

Clynk for KBIA
 
CLYNK is another way to help preserve our beaches and help KBIA at the same time!  We have the green CLYNK bags available at our office for members to pick up, fill with returnables, and redeem them at the Kennebunk Hannaford (or any CLYNK redemption center).  Proceeds from KBIA-tagged bags will benefit our nonprofit organization.
