As we get closer to summer we will begin to schedule fun events like Kayaking, Volleyball, Hiking, and much more… Plus our annual Earth Day cleaning project in the village.

Some of our big trips in the Summer are South Sandy Creek, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival (Celebrating it’s 25th year), Ithaca Gorges, Green Lakes, Chimney Bluffs, and Montezuma Nat’l Wildlife Refuge.
