From the Supervisor – August 2018

By on August 1, 2018

Summer is in full swing here at Greece Town Hall. We just held our biggest event of the year: The Old Fashioned 4th of July Celebration! This is the fifth year we’ve held this beloved event, and as in years past, we saw thousands of attendees flock to the Town Hall Campus for the day’s festivities. Kicking off the day was our 5K Freedom Run and Super Hero Sprint for kids. I would like to thank all who braved the heat to participate in these friendly competitions. Evening festivities picked up around 4:00pm with family-friendly and children’s activities and food provided from some of our favorite local food truck vendors. During the live concerts of the evening, attendees were treated to a wonderful performance by Rochester native Josie Waverly. Following Josie Waverly was the popular band Orleans. Orleans actually performed the first year we held the 4th of July Celebration and they were so popular, we wanted to bring them back.

The huge celebration ended with a bang – literally! The Town of Greece is proud to have one of the best firework displays in Monroe County, and this year did not disappoint. I would like to thank everyone who came out to enjoy Independence Day in the Town of Greece!

Flag Day, recognized across America every year on June 14th, was extra special this year in the Town of Greece as Greece Legion Post #468 joined us for a dedication ceremony at Veteran’s Memorial Park. As people across the United States commemorated the flag’s adoption, we were honored to raise and dedicate the flag at Veteran’s Memorial Park to the brave men and women of our military. A plaque was placed at the base of the flag pole, which reads: Dedicated To Our Great Veterans.

Make sure to check out our next summer concert featuring Beatle Magic on Sunday, August 12th. All concerts are free to the public and take place at the Pavilion at Town Hall from 2:00pm – 4:00pm. In addition to our summer concert series, we also feature movies for families at our Town Pavilion. All movies are free to the public. The next showing will take place Friday, July 27th at 7:00pm and will feature “Coco.”  For more information, please call our Community and Senior Center at 723-2425.

I hope that you will take advantage of all of our upcoming programs! If I can be of assistance to you in any other Town-related matter, please do not hesitate to contact our office or visit our website.
