The Danby Community Park Association's Annual meeting and picnic was a hit! On July 16, the weather was perfect for gathering by the pavilion in Dotson Park and celebrating a great year of entertaining events and financial stability for DCPA. Approximately 20 friends of the park enjoyed good food and great information about park happenings, future plans, and volunteer opportunities. See attached document to view the full DCPA annual report.

The highlight of the meeting was when DCPA president Kenny Makosch recognized three special volunteers for their hard work to keep the park going strong. Steve Barber has been a park volunteer for many years, and most recently he agreed to let the park use his tractor for mowing, and helped drill the holes where the disc golf baskets were permanently installed. Peter Farley has dedicated so much time to keeping the park and disc golf course in shape - mowing such a large space is no easy job, but such an important one that we all appreciate! Thanks to Julie Clougherty, the park is more financially stable and we are grateful for the time she has spent caring for the trails and front entrance area (Tom Janda accepted on her behalf). Cutter Cramton and Pat Govang were also recognized for their commitment to building the disc golf course expansion. Gould Colman generously sponsored the awards for these volunteers. We hope they all get to relax and enjoy their new growlers - cheers!

After the meeting, folks hung out around the fire, toasted marshmallows, enjoyed some Ithaca brews, and listened to a terrific acoustic performance by Tom D'Ambrose. It was a great event that truly reflected the relaxed and friendly community in Danby.
