Celebration of Love & Community
February 14, 2019
Come experience Ferry Beach, a vibrant community center that has been in your back yard for over 120 years. We will once again be hosting our Valentines evening celebration of love and community on Feb 14, 2019 from 5:30-8:30 pm and are extending invites to our friends and neighbors who live, work and play in the Saco community.
Ferry Beach has been a part of this wonderful city since 1901, providing youth camps, conferences, retreats and programs for families, individuals and organizations. We would like to host the community for a “chocolate lovers” all-you-can eat buffet style meal and wonderful desserts with a cash bar with bear & wine. Tickets are $15 each and we have space for 150 to attend.
To register for this event, call 207-282-4489 ext. 1 or click here.
