As I sit here watching and listening to spring bloom all around, it is disheartening to write such a melancholy article about our beautiful park and all the wonderful events that occur there throughout the spring, summer and fall. Unfortunately, the news from the Preble Recreation Department is not what we all are hoping for at this time.
It is at this time and until otherwise announced that all events scheduled at the Preble Park are CANCELED. This was a collaborative decision based on the guidelines set forth by the CDC, State of New York, and Local Health Department. When restrictions are lifted by the governor and affiliates, that the health and safety of all individuals is deemed more secure, notification will be provided. Until such time there will be NO EVENTS and ACTIVITES at PREBLE PARK.
The pavilion and bathrooms will be closed during this time.
If you have made reservations to rent the pavilion, please contact facilitator, Renee Compton. The recreation department intends to work with each family and organization should something change prior to your reservation.
The Preble Park Youth Program will not be in session this summer. We are saddened by this as well. However, PPYP plans to upload some craft ideas periodically to the web page so that would-be campers can still be artists and create at home. Please contact the director should you have questions.
The Annual Preble Yard Sale will not be held either as Governor Como has stated that these are not to be held during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Preble Recreation Department wishes you each a safe and healthy season.
