Special Events Committee


The Special Events Committee is made up entirely of volunteers from our community and plans several family friendly events throughout the year celebrating the Town's heritage, recreational opportunities, Town history and culture, and past accomplishments. You can contact the committee at right (or scroll below if on a mobile device). Events are usually FREE and are always open to the public and are posted on the Town website, the calendar, the Town Facebook page, and sent out to our email list through MailChimp.
