CLARENDON – Before the Clarendon Town Board members held their regular August meeting at the Historical Society Museum Barn on Tuesday evening, community members enjoyed free hot dogs and drinks, and were treated to a concert by the band, Brick.

The Clarendon Historical Society served up the food provided by the Clarendon Gazebo Committee.

“It’s a very nice event for the town,” Clarendon Town Board member Allen Robinson noted during the meeting, following a comment from a resident praising the annual event as a time for the “small community to come together, sit down and relax.”

During their meeting, board members set workshop dates of Sept. 21 and 22 for budget preparation. The town must have its 2016 tentative budget in place by Sept. 30, officials said.
