Summer is here!

Thanks to everyone who came out for the Ice Cream Social!  We were very pleased with the turnout and excited to have you all here.  Today is the summer solstice, which means the days are getting shorter from now until December!

Don’t worry though, we have plenty of activities to fill up the daylight hours for the rest of the summer.  Here’s a partial list:

If an event says “at Parks”, it’s taking place at the Menands parks program, which takes place from 9am to 12pm on weekdays in Ganser Smith Park. Visit this site for more information.
