Bay City Post, June 2016
It's June in our fair city, and that means summer fun: backyard barbecues, sailing out of New Port, riding the Lollercoaster at Hairy Hippo Fun Land, or just hanging out at the Blue Crystal Pool in Dennis. Speaking of pools, please remember that children - and their parents! - have lovely wading pools to use in both Morton and Maddequet, so leave those fire hydrants alone! The fire department thanks you, and so will our fire-prone city.
This month, the Bay City Post welcomes our newest columnist, Georgia Sipe, with her delightful fashion column, "Georgia's Closet". Among other things, Georgia runs Georgia's Beauty Parlor in Truro. Stop in for some juicy gossip and a great retro 'do!
June will also bring with it Second Life's 13th annual birthday party, SL13B, and Bay City will once again participate with an exhibit entitled "City of Adventure." An SLB exhibit (and the party being held there) was how I was first introduced to Bay City. I'm really looking forward to the exhibit, and to many more years of Bay City adventures.
And now, let's see what kind of adventures our reporters have been up to this month. On to the June issue of the Bay City Post!

Fundraising efforts celebrated
by Marianne McCann, Ace Reporter
On the eve of our 8th Anniversary weekend, the Residents of Bay City are proud to announce the following:
Thanks in large part to our donations from our annual Hot Bay City Nights and holiday Tree Lighting & Silent Auction Events, as well as the generous Linden Dollar gift from Ivan Suen, Bay City is snow listed as a Silver Level sponsor on Child's Play's website. You'll see our logo on the main page of their website, at www.childsplaycharity.org
In addition, our donation kiosks are now transferred over to Child's Play Charity. They have announced this on their website at www.childsplaycharity.org/misc/secondlife. You can learn more about the organization and their efforts there.
Bay City has long been a supporter of Child's Play, both for their mission as well as their desire to keep a low overhead: meaning more money goes to help kids in need, not "administrative costs."
Bay City is a mainland community, developed by Linden Lab® and home to the Bay City Alliance. The Bay City Alliance was founded in 2008 to promote the Bay City regions of Second Life and provide a venue for Bay City Residents and other interested parties to socialize and network. It is now the largest group for Residents of Bay City.
