I was extremely honored to visit the New York State Senate and Assembly with the 2021 NYS Class C Girls Soccer Champions from AuSable Valley.  It was a tremendous experience for the team to be honored in both the Senate and Assembly for their achievement.  As a byproduct, we were able to witness our state government at work.  I was able to network with Senator Dan Stec, Assemblyman Matt Simpson, and Assemblyman Billy Jones as well as their chiefs of staff.  I think it is incredible to have such a great group of representatives supporting us and our children at the state level.

Our parks department, Paul Benway, has been hard at work cleaning, prepping and getting all of our parks beautiful for the summer.  Our parks committee, led by Councilman Knut Sauer, has also been hard at work getting volunteer days lined up, equipment and material in place, and making plans for the future.  If you would like to help make our parks better, our next volunteer work day is June 11th at Douglas Park near the Covered Bridge 9:00 AM – Noon.

Our community garden is almost ready for the season.  We still have a few plots available for rent for the season.  If you would like to have a plot, please contact the Town Clerk to reserve yours today.

In an effort to offer more local events to our community, we will be starting to offer movie nights.  Our first movie is Thor: Ragnarok, it will take place in the gym at the Community Center on Friday, June 10th at 7:00 PM.  The doors will open at 6:30 PM and admission is free.   Bring a blanket to lay out on the floor or have a seat in the bleachers.

Have a great week,

Matt Stanley.
