  • Awesome news! The staff and residents of Atria Bay Spring Village, longtime supporters of the BSCC, are donating the proceeds of this year's Annual Car Show to the Community Center. Even better, the Car Show is September 13, the same day as the Fiddle n Folk Festival, so you'll be able to take a break from the awesome music and head across the street to check out the amazing autos.

    Thanks so much to Atria Bay Spring Village’s Executive Director Linda Rice, the management team, staff, and residents for their enthusiastic support!
