6:00PM-8:00PM – 5TH ANNUAL POLLINATOR POTLUCK & HONEY HARVEST

Do you know how honey is made? Have you ever heard the phrases “busy as a bee”, “the bees knees” or “bee line”? Stop by and get
to know these critical critters. See a hands-on extraction of honey from the LBIF’s adopted hives with LBIF Beekeeper, Paul Buterick of
Mothflower Apiary, to learn how honey is created and harvested from the combs. Honey bees are absolutely vital to the production of our
food supply and come to learn why. Admission is FREE! Just bring a honey or pollinator-inspired dish to share with other members of the community.

8:00PM-10:30PM – SOUVENIR-A FANTASIA ON THE LIFE OF FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS AT THE SURFLIGHT THEATRE

Surflight Theatre
201 Engleside Ave, Beach Haven, NJ 08008

This weekend on LBI: Souvenir – September 19, 20, 21, 22 at 8:00 pm; September 20, 23 at 2:00 pm
Florence Foster Jenkins, a wealthy society eccentric suffered under the delusion that she was a great coloratura soprano when she was in fact incapable of producing two consecutive notes in tune. Nevertheless, her annual recitals in the ballroom of The Ritz- Carlton hotel, where she resided, brought her extraordinary fame. As news of her terrible singing spread, so did her celebrity. Her growing mob of fans packed her recitals, stuffing handkerchiefs in their mouths to stifle their laughter—which Mrs. Jenkins blissfully mistook for cheers. The climax of her career was a single concert at Carnegie Hall in 1944. Famously, it sold out in two hours. Souvenir, by turn hilarious and poignant, tells her story through the eyes of her accompanist, Cosme McMoon. Faced with her boundless certainty, Cosme comes to revise his attitude, not only towards her singing but to the very meaning of music itself.
