Oh, the choices for the coming few days.
A concert? Some golf? A good walk? Buy a plant for the home or garden?
Here are a few suggestions to while away some time this weekend.
1. Bo Spring album release concert. The Bo Spring Band will celebrate the release of its self-titled album with a concert tonight at the Port Theatre as part of the “Thursdays at the Theatre” series. Spring promised some guest players along with the band. Doors open at 6:45 p.m. ET and concert kicks up a notch an hour later. Tickets are $10 and are available at the Port Inn and The Fuss. Tickets are also available at bospringband.com.
2. Tee off to support SHH volunteers. The Sacred Heart Hospital Volunteer Guild will hold it third annual Golf Tournament Friday at St. Joseph Bay Golf Club. Registration is at 10:30 a.m. ET with a 12 p.m. ET shotgun start. Registration fee is $100 and includes golf, cart, lunch, Happy Hour oyster bar and dinner by David Rich and Sister’s Restaurant. Registration forms are available in advance at Novak Law, the Port Inn, the Haughty Heron and St. Joseph Bay Golf Club.
3. Walk some laps, have some fun, support a cause. Relay for Life of the Forgotten Coast will be held 6 p.m. until 12 midnight ET Friday at Shark Stadium in Port St. Joe. The opening ceremonies will be followed by the “Survivors Lap” celebrating and honoring those who survive the dreaded diagnosis. That will be followed at roughly 6:30 p.m. ET by the “Survivors Dinner.” “We really want to honor and celebrate all our suvivors,” said Lisa Jones with the American Cancer Society. The “Luminara,” a lighted salute to those who have lost the fight will be held at 9 p.m. ET. There is also music, food and games for the young ones and a family atmosphere to support cancer research.
4. Peruse, purchase, spring plants. The Port St. Joe Garden Club will host its annual “Plant Sale” 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. ET Saturday at the Garden Center on 216 Eighth Street. There will be houseplants, vegetables, yard plants, decorative containers, and many garden-related treasures. Come and check it out!
