The Recreation phone has been very busy this month taking reservations for pavilion rentals in Marcellus Park. People have been renting for family reunions, graduation parties, weddings, business functions and class reunions. Some weekends are already booked. Last year we added the Playground Pavilion. This popular pavilion is family friendly (no alcohol or smoking allowed). With the a grant from the Olde Home Days Committee we recently put in electrical outlets. We also will be opening up the renovated Welcome Center. The Welcome Center has a small kitchen area, seating for 30-40 people, plus an outside patio with 2 picnic tables and a fire box. The Welcome Center is a year-round facility for small functions such as birthday parties, bridal and baby showers and small family parties.
There will also be a newly remodeled handicap bathroom. We have several bookings already for this summer.
The 2010 One Day Trip Packets are now available at the Town Hall, Village Office, PEACE Luncheon and Marcellus Library. Our first trip will take place on Wednesday May 26th.
