Dear PVBA Spirit Day Summer 2019 Family;

A BIG shout out to each of you who came out for PVBA's Spirit Day this past Sunday. It was AMAZING!  And a full house!  So many wonderful folks. Such great PVBA spirit.

Summer Season is now closed with the last and a final day spent together with a full RSVP list of PVBA players, families, friends, fans, coaches, and guests.

It was a very special day and such a memorable experience. We are all so very grateful to the many excited faces and supportive families who all came out to spend this action packed day together.

From the snorkeling to the tidepool exploration teams, to the ever so popular s’mores makers, to the Taco Man, Vicky, Rachel and team – you guys rocked it!  The food was amazing! And to the sunbathers, sand makers, sandcastle artists, Frisbee Olympians to the swimmers, climbers, sliders, kite flyers and amazing cake lovers… most especially to the Coach who brought the most comfortable sports chair ever made to the family who brought out the awnings and blew up all those beach basketball’s (you guys were amazing!) and to each of you who worked so hard to break it all down at the end...You are each so very special and all so appreciated.  And boy do you know how to party!

Wishing each and every one of you a very special rest of the summer and hope to see you again this Winter season. 

In closing, a fitting and heartfelt toast to each of you;  

“May your summer days be warmer.

May your summer nights be cool.

May you fill your days with new memories

Beyond summer and in to school....

No matter where the road ahead takes you

May friends and family warm your hearts

We hope we reconnect with you again this Fall!”

When the PVBA basketball season starts!!!

Until next season well.

Your PVBA family.
