“ I am hard pressed to believe we are at this point already,” remarked Michael P. Bare, SBCA President, “ it seems as though it was just this week that we had our Kick-Off Breakfast. I am very excited about this Friday’s event, it is going to be spectacular, we have Hogan’s Goat entertaining us for the reception and dinner, with DJ Drew Errico carrying on the party after dinner . We are recognizing some of South Boston’s best citizens.” Bare continued.
