What’s Happening


An important message from the Friends of the Bay Spring Community Center:

Due to the coronavirus, and an abundance of caution, the Bay Spring Community Center is suspending all scheduled, onsite programming, until at least June 1st.  We are currently running some great virtual programming and looking to expand that list of offerings!

Please stay informed about the status of specific programs by referring to the list below, or check our Facebook page.

Our top priority is the health and safety of community members. For reliable, up-to-date information about COVID-19, visit the websites of the RI Department of Health and the CDC.

Thank you and stay healthy,
The Friends of the Bay Spring Community Center
