The stipulations were simple: To enrich the children of our community with a place to play, learn and enhance their lives through team and individual sports activities in a facility that bears his name. The Christopher Dailey Memorial Youth Gymnasium was completed on March 2nd, 2006 and is currently getting extensive use by our community youth.

Family hikes are slower paced, easy-going walks intended to comfortably bring people together in nature. All ages and abilities are welcome to join in. The pace and path will be determined by the group at the time of the hike. At this time our trails are not able to accommodate strollers or wheelchairs, however, we can stay to the roads making the hike more accessible. If this is something your party requires, please let us know when you sign up. Because this is Thanksgiving day, please come prepared to share with the group something you are grateful for. Reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance. The cost is $5 for adults (18+) and $1 per child, payable by cash or check at the office upon your arrival, or, in lieu of the program fee you may bring an item for the food pantry for each individual in your party.
