On the shores of the South River where chords of music fill the air and smells of barbecue and grilled hot dogs waft near your nose: This is where you need to be Sunday, May 7 as Bay Weekly celebrates its seventh birthday on the lawn at Surfside 7.
Our birthday bash means a lot to us and a lot for you. You are our guests; no fee is required. But we do hope for $1 donations to benefit the South River Federation.
Games of volleyball will activate the afternoon. Music, food, massages and more fill the day. Walk the deck to keep your bids current in the silent auction.
