Greetings!  Well, summer continues to fly by.  And what a terrific season it has been so far.  We aren’t done yet, so get out there and enjoy all we have to offer here in our town.

Thanks for the memories:  As summer kicked off, we had several wonderful events in town that provided great family fun and lasting memories.  In early June, with help from the Knights of Columbus, our 18th annual Fishing Derby at Perinton Park went “swimmingly.”  Great weather, great turnout, great fishing and great prizes made for a memorable afternoon. 

July brought the annual Chamber of Commerce 4th of July Parade.  As I walked in the parade, I was so impressed with our community’s display of patriotism all along the parade route!  What a great event!

Earlier this month, the youths of our town showed their skill and endurance in the Perinton Youth Triathlon.  Participants competed in a race including segments of swimming, biking and running.  If you missed it this year, be sure to look for it next summer.

Our Gazebo Concert Series at Kennelley Park and the Sunday Evening Concert Series at Center Park are both well underway.  Come check them out.  These popular concerts are an ideal way to spend a summer evening with friends and family.

Please check this brochure for upcoming events and programs.

The Red Truck Fleet:  There is an old saying around here that says “there are really only two seasons in upstate New York – winter and road construction.”  While this may seem painfully true, our town residents know all too well our Department of Public Works is so much more.  With road maintenance/repair season coming to a close, I want thank all of you for your patience as our “Red Truck Fleet” continues to keep our streets in top condition.  This summer our town DPW worked on nearly 80 of the 335 lane miles of roads in Perinton.  While you may expect them to step back and take a little breather, think again – they will soon be turning their attention to the annual leaf collection. 

Super Hero Time:  Lastly, I would like to take a moment to thank several members of our staff here at the Town of Perinton for their quick, level-headed professional response to an emergency situation at our Community Center early this summer.  Recreation staff members Paul Kelly, Laura Silins and Mike Clark along with John Overacker and Greg Seigfred from Code Enforcement leapt into action to save one of our community members after he suffered a heart attack at our Rec Center.  Although they hope to never have to use it, these individuals have spent hours training for situations like this one.  I am proud of the way they handled it and delighted with the outcome. Kudos!!

Please enjoy the rest of your summer and fall.  Take a hike on our trails, enjoy a free concert, have a picnic at one of our many parks, enroll in one of our rec programs.  Also consider volunteering at one of the many local organizations that do such great work in our community.  There are many volunteer opportunities out there - keep making Perinton a great place to live! 

As always, if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to stop by, call or email any time.  My number is (585) 223-0770 and my email address is channa@perinton.org.  I look forward to hearing from you.
