President’s Message -July 13th, 2016
Well finally summer has arrived and I don’t know about you but it’s getting harder and harder to keep up with watering my flowers! Phew! It has been really hot!
I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who attended our Open House on the 22nd of June, we had a very nice attendance and coverage by the local media. When you see the OPEN flag flying, stop in and take a look around. Members, we’re still looking for flyers and information to share visitors that stop by.
As you have seen the swans are missing from the park. We were told they both passed away and we are now working diligently with the Agency of Natural Resources to allow us to replace them. It’s a process and one that we hope meets with a positive resolution.
If you haven’t had a chance to look at our calendar and were not aware, we have the 7th Annual Car Show coming up on July 30th . This is always an exciting time to come out and see all of the beautiful, tenderly cared for vehicles on display. It is also a great time to meet neighbors and friends, the park is a beautiful place for such gatherings, so come join the fun!
This summer we are continuing to have free concerts in the park. Mark your calendars:
- July 30, 6-9, Nobby Reed Bank
- August 10th , 7:30-8:30, Citizens Bank
- August 27th , 6-9, Almost Nowhere
As you may be aware the Swanton Chamber is a volunteer organization and the hours we are open are dependent on the wonderful people who are able to volunteer their time. We are having a challenge filling in the Friday spot, so if you know anyone who would like to welcome people in a very lovely setting the hours are very flexible and we can work around you. Email or call me directly, contact info below.
- Tues-Wed: 1-4
- Thursday 10-2
- Friday, check to see if the flag is out
- Saturday 10-2
Please stop by and say hello and check out the merchandise and goodies for sale at the Farmers Market every Saturday from 9-2. If interested in displaying your crafts, art, etc please reach out to Randy Pilon at 309 3586.
Thank you all for your support and if you’re traveling this summer, be safe.
Happy Summer Everyone!
