Route 281, Preble, New York 13141
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
As I sit here under the tree watching and listening to the sounds of FALL approaching and those last sounds of Summer.... birds chirping,geese flying, the fields being cut and harvested, or towing of boats and rumbling of motor cycles my thoughts stay to the tune "What a Wonderful World"
by Louis Armstrong. Although not all of us are physically "shaking hands, saying how do you do" (Armstrong, 1968). We continue with High fives, fist bumbs, and waves with greetings and "saying I love you" (Armstrong, 1968). It is a wonderful world!
Although this may be true, we are still in a time where all events scheduled at the Preble Park remain CANCELED. This decision was based on the guidelines set forth by the CDC, State of New York, and Local Health Department. When ALL restrictions are lifted, moved through the Stages completely accordingly by the Governor and affiliates that the health and safety of all individuals is deemed in such a setting is in the best interest of all, notification will be provided. Until such time there will be NO EVENTS and ACTIVITES at PREBLE PARK. Please note Governor Como has Recreation is listed in Stage Four. However, other factors play into the decision as well.
However, if you choose to use the playground equipment avaliable, fields or park in general this is at your own risk as nothing is cleaned or disinfected daily. The Pavilion and Bathrooms will remain closed during this time. There will be no access to these.
If you had made reservations to rent the pavilion and you have not been contacted, please contact Renee Compton, as she facilitates the reservations. The Recreation Department strives to work with each family and organization should something change prior to your reservation. Again, All reservations have been cancelled.
Granted, the Preble Park Youth Program was in session this summer. We were saddened by this as well, but are looking forward to what next year will present for our youth. Please watch for information as the time comes closer.
The Preble Recreation Department wishes you each a safe and healthy season.
** Please remember the PARK is GARBAGE IN and GARBAGE OUT--- if you bring something in with you PLEASE take it out with you.
