I hope that everybody had a Merry Christmas this year. I hope that all your wishes were granted. Take the time to visit your friends and family. Share the holiday season with them. I hope that a big snow storm does not come for a while. We could use some time to be with the ones that we love. With the children being off from school, you can take them outdoors and relax with them Ice skating and sled riding will be here soon. Building a snowman can be a lot of fun. For indoor sports there is always basketball and volleyball. Beulah Brinton Community Center, 2555 S. Bay St. in Bay View, has a lot of winter activities for the family. Relax and enjoy your family and friends. Please support the Bay View community.
