Pittsford Day Celebration 2007

R. Adams informed the Recreation Committee that the 2007 Pittsford Day is scheduled for Sunday, July 1 at the Recreation Area. He stated as the Recreation Director he suggested to the Pittsford Day Committee that they think about the possibility of holding the event on July 4. His reasoning was since the actual holiday was on a Wednesday and residents would most likely to be around and looking for something to do. R. Adams thought it would be nice to fill the Recreation Area with people during the week. However the other Pittsford Day Committee members were not overly in support of the concept and voted to host the event on the first Sunday in July as it has been since the event was reintroduced in 2005.
