|Dear Granby Chamber of Commerce Members, Friends and Patrons of Salmon Brook Park,|
On September 19, 20 and 21 the Granby Chamber of Commerce held its “Celebrate Granby” event in Salmon Brook Park. The weather gods smiled and this year’s event drew thousands of visitors to Salmon Brook Park, Celebrate Granby not only promotes local businesses but it celebrates the beauty of our wonderful home town.
The Chamber’s Celebrate Granby Committee worked closely this year with the Town of Granby to reorganize our event. Most activities at this year’s event were centrally located in front of the Band Shell at Salmon Brook Park. As in past years, the ball fields in front of the band shell took quite a beating. As always, the Chamber reimbursed the Town for the cost to repair and reseed the ball fields after Celebrate Granby.
The Granby Chamber of Commerce is continuing its efforts to raise funds for the Town’s portable sprinkler system. Proper watering provides the ability to quickly get the fields back to playing condition regardless of rainfall. To date the Chamber has raised over $1,000 of our $5,000 goal for the “Sprinkler Fund”.
The Sprinkler System will benefit the many teams and individuals who use the park. It will help ensure that events like Celebrate Granby, the Granby Bluegrass Festival and the Summer Concert Series continue to utilize the fields in front of the band shell.
Although the holidays are upon us and summer activities seem like a distant dream, I am once again asking you to donate to the Chamber’s “Sprinkler Fund”. I wish to thank those who have already donated and encourage those who haven’t, to do so.
Donations in any amount may be made to “Granby Chamber of Commerce, Sprinkler Fund” at P.O. Box 211, Granby, CT 06035.
Please help support this worthy cause with your generous donation today. We’ll see you all at Celebrate Granby in Salmon Brook Park, September 18, 19 and 20, 2020.
