ALBION – The Village of Albion will run a six-week summer parks program beginning June 20 through July 27.

The village will have paid park supervisors on weekdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Bullard Park and Pee Wee Park, which is part of Bullard on Route 31, at the east end of the village. There will be recreational and arts and crafts activities available for free for boys and girls, ages 5 to 16. The program is open to children in the Albion Central School district.

Parents and guardians are urged to attend registration the first week of the parks program to meet the supervisors and fill out important paperwork.

The parks program will also offer the following camps: tennis for grades 5-12 from June 25-29; wrestling for grades 6-12 from July 2-6; volleyball for grades 6-12 from July 2-6; baseball for grades 4-8 from July 9-13; and tennis for grades 5-12 from July 16-20.

John Grillo is the recreation director. This summer’s program has added weekly fitness challenges as well as special events, including presentations from the Genesee-Orleans Council on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse and the Genesee-Orleans Youth Bureau on making good choices.

The annual senior citizen picnic will be July 24 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The Children’s Carnival will be July 13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
