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.

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

The 13 Park Supervisors did 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 two village parks throughout the summer, which started on June 20 and ended July 27. This was another banner summer for the Parks Program.

Special thanks to 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.

In addition, thank you to the parents whose children participated in the summer program. Hope to see you next year.

Thank you,

John J. Grillo
