We generally start the year with an Arbor Day event at our park in the spring. We are a designated Tree City USA and celebrate Arbor Day as part of our commitment to our leafy friends.

We have a rousing 4th of July get together replete with live music, free burgers and hot dogs, (bring a veggie dish please), free ice cream, and a children’s parade with prizes to the best decorated bike, wagon, child, etc. Typically, 10:00 to 2:00 at Sojourn Church on Rudy Lane.

In the early fall we have an ice cream social and free shredding of valuable papers that have lost their value. Ice cream and shredding seem to go together well and everyone has a nice time.

For the Christmas Holidays we have our Glow on the Green event that occurs on the Sunday after Thanksgiving at our lovely 4-acre park. Usually 5:00 to 6:30. We light bonfires and sing carols to live music all the while drinking hot apple cider and eating cookies. To cap it off we throw a switch and ignite the 18,000 lights on our famous 66-foot-tall Christmas tree.

And then it starts all over.
