Fall Programs

The Fall Programs have gone well and are but over. Youth soccer, the Pittsford Pumpkin Party, and the Disc Golf Tournament are a few items that kept the Recreation Area busy the through the month of October. Coming up on Saturday, 11/17/12 is the annual Craft Fair held at the Lothrop.


2nd Annual Fall Disc Golf Fundraiser

On Saturday, October 20, 2012, the Pittsford Recreation Department sponsored two activities at the Pittsford Recreation Area. Fortunately, we had a remarkable sunny and unseasonably warm autumn day for these outdoor events. The day began @ 9:00 am with the “Shot Gun Start” of the second annual Fall Disc Golf Tournament held on the Pittsford Recreation Area Public Disc Golf Course, an 18-hole venue. This fall we had thirty-five people take part in the benefit tournament almost doubling the number of disc golfers from the year before. The Recreation Department raised $350.00 to go towards the Varsity Baseball Field improvements at Otter Valley.






Winter Programs

The next Teen Dance is scheduled for Friday, 12/7 at the VT Police Academy. The Recreation Department is sponsoring a Snowmobile Safety program on Saturday, 12/8 at the Pittsford Fire Department.


Lothrop Basketball & Saturday Practices

The Lothrop basketball program will have some practices and games on Saturdays. There had been much discussion after Mr. West, Lothrop Principal, decided the Lothrop Soccer teams were not allowed to meet on Saturdays earlier this fall. The Basketball coaches meeting is scheduled for Monday, 11/26 and the parents meeting is scheduled for 12/10.
