I would to thank the many people and organizations who contributed to the growth and success of the Village of Albion Recreation Summer Parks Program. The following organizations visited the parks with great messages for the youths attending: GCASA, Genesee Orleans Youth Bureau, Orleans Health Department, Hoag Library, Ice Cream Truck along with others.

The Park Supervisors did a wonderful job of providing a fun, safe and exciting time at the park each day. Well over 90 park children signed up for the Summer Parks Program which was held at Vet’s Park this summer due to the construction at Bullard Park. The program started on June 26 and ended on July 26. This was another banner summer for the Parks Program.

Special thanks to Orleans Community Action for busing the children on the field trips.  Thanks go out to the Albion Central School District for being the host of several sport clinics this summer.

Thanks to the Batavia Daily and the Orleans Hub for their coverage of the summer program.

Thanks to the Village of Albion Trustees, Mayor, Village Office Staff, Maintenance Department and the Recreation Committee all for their support throughout the summer.

In addition, thank you to the parents whose children participated in the summer program.  The Summer Parks Program will be held at Bullard Park next summer in hopes of new apparatus, amphitheater, storage and rest rooms along with a very popular Spray/Splash Pad. Next summer may be the best ever.

Hope to see you next year.

Thank you as always,

John J. Grillo
