Early Voting Location Clarification

Though the Village of BHI article in the November Island Report correctly lists the Brunswick Center at Southport (located at 1513 N. Howe Street #1) for the Village of BHI voters, that polling location is only for election day - Tuesday, November 5. The early voting location for 2019 (and for all odd-numbered year elections) is at the Board of Elections in Bolivia, located at Building H, 75 Stamp Act Dr NE, Bolivia, NC 28422. For any questions and information, contact the Brunswick County Board of Elections at www.brunswickcountync.gov/elections, elections@brunswickcountync.gov, or 910-253-2620. The Village of BHI and the Bald Head Association regret any confusion.

Bicycle Man Community Outreach
The Village Chapel

Join the Village Chapel in helping raise money for the Bicycle Man Community Outreach Projects. This  non-profit organization, based since 1990 in Fayetteville, NC ( www.thebicycleman.bike ), the Bicycle Man has a vision of making a positive impact on the community by leading through example and demonstrating the Christian principles of charity and thrift.

Your tax-deductible donation helps provide The Bicycle Man with the purchase of helmets and bicycles that will be given away on Dec. 20th. An example of what your donation can help purchase; one helmet for $8, or a small child's bike for $65.
 
Checks are welcome and collected via the church's regular collection, by designating "Helmets" on the memo line, mailing a check to the Village Chapel at PO Box 3035, Bald Head Island, NC 28461, or placing your check in the Village Chapel donation box.
 
The Bicycle Man's goal is to provide more than 1,000 bikes and helmets each year to those less fortunate children in the weeks leading up to Christmas, reaching six surrounding counties. This is the first year Brunswick County children will be included in the annual giveaway efforts, of which eligibility for the bikes will be facilitated by county Department of Social Services offices. Donations will be accepted until November 30th, at which time the Village Chapel will donate all collected funds to the organization. Please consider donating to this worthwhile cause!
