Back to school? Not so fast! We are still celebrating summer here at KBIA, our final week of the season. We have a festive finale planned for Saturday, details below, and we hope you’ll join us in enjoying these last days of summer.
Season finale: August BBQ & Awards this Saturday


Please join us at KBIA this Saturday, August 17, for the second and final barbecue and awards ceremonies. Just like our July event, our August BBQ and Awards Ceremony will kick off with assorted watersports in the pool for various ages:
  9:30 AM:  3- to 4-year-olds
10:00 AM:  5- to 6-year-olds
10:30 AM: 7- to 8-year-olds
11:00 AM: 9 and older
11:30 AM: Free swim for all ages
At 10 AM, we will launch our new student-built boat (details below).
At 11 AM, we will hold our annual Membership Meeting under the white tent (details below).
At 12 PM, KBIA volunteers will serve up a barbecue lunch (hot dogs, hamburgers or veggie burgers, chips, cake and drinks.)
At 1 PM, we will begin the awards portion of the day, handing out various KBIA “wedges” and traditional KBIA honors.
Be sure to check next week’s e-newsletter for a list of the winners!
Help us launch new boat
For eight weeks our KBIA kids have been building a boat. Yes, that’s right, a real boat that will float! From bow to stern to the final paint, it is almost done and ready to launch. Please join us at 10 AM Saturday for an official boat launching ceremony in the cove. Will it be named Poseidon or Narwhal? We’re tallying the votes from those who had a hand in its making, and we will announce the name Saturday. Please join us!
Membership Meeting is Saturday
All KBIA members are invited to our annual meeting at 11 AM Saturday under the tent. This is an opportunity to share thoughts on the season, air ideas for next summer, and ask questions of the Board and/or Executive Director. We will also introduce new members of our Board of Directors. Afterward, please plan to stay for a BBQ lunch at noon, followed by the Awards Ceremony at 1.
Membership Directory due out this fall
Our annual Membership Directory, due out in early September, makes it easy to stay in touch with your KBIA friends and family throughout the year. Our annual publications lists our trophy winners as well as the 2013 list of KBIA staff and families’ names, addresses, e-mails and phone numbers. In order for it to be as accurate as possible, please make sure the office has your latest contact information. And if you haven’t joined yet, you have until Friday! 
Wear your heart on your sleeve … now 20% off!
Now through Saturday, everything in our KBIA store is 20 percent off. We have hats, long- and short-sleeved T-shirts, fleeces, umbrellas, sweatshirts, sweatpants and so much more to help you remember the good times at KBIA all year long. The store, located next to the office in Strong Cottage, is open during regular office hours.
Lost-and-found overfloweth
Towels and life-vests and flip-flops … oh my! Our lost and found is overflowing with some things you are surely missing. Before leaving campus this week, please stop by the gray bin, located outside the garage door of Smith House. Items left behind after Friday will be donated to Goodwill.
Don’t be left out from Movie Night
Due to overwhelming popularity, Movie Night has reached capacity the last two weeks. We don’t like to have to turn folks away, and we strongly suggest parents preregister their kiddos in the office as soon as possible for this week’s movie, “A Bug’s Life.” Capacity is 55 children.
