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, and other volunteers.

The Recreation Department set up field trips to the following businesses who hosted a great day for the children: Fishers Eats and Treats, Oak Orchard Bowling Lanes, Albion Sportsman’s Club, and the Orleans County Fair.

Thank you to the following who contributed to the Annual Senior Citizens Picnic: Orleans Community Action, Wal-Mart of Albion, Crosby’s of Albion, Albion Fire Department and Save-A -Lot of Albion.

The 15 Park Supervisors get a wonderful job of providing a fun, safe and exciting time at the parks each day. Well over 150 park children signed up for the Summer Parks Program at the three village parks which started on June 24 and ended on July 31. This was another banner summer for the Parks Program.

Special thanks to Annette Grillo Finch and Heide Wyant from the Orleans Community Action for busing the children on the field trips and for the Annual Children’s Carnival. 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, Parks Maintenance Department and the Recreation Committee all for their support throughout the summer.

Thank you,

John J. Grillo
