Photo Day Details and Times Announced

This year’s BYBA Photo Day will take place on Saturday, April 26th at Bayside Field.

Community Garden Area at Bayside

As a reminder, the fenced in Community Garden area adjacent to the Bayside fields is NOT a play area for siblings attending games at Bayside.  Several instances have been reported to us of the garden being harmed by unsupervised children playing there during games.  Parents are responsible for siblings attending games, and they should not be allowed to play in the Community Garden areas without being invited by an active Garden member who is tending to their planter.  Thanks for your cooperation!
