FRIENDS OF ROBBINS FARM PARK EVENTS
- FoRFP Annual Meeting ------- Wednesday, January 23rd, 6:45pm
Join us in the Community Room at the Robbins Memorial Library for the Friends of Robbins Farm Park Annual Meeting. This year, we are excited to have Bill Armstrong, the founder of Armstrong Ambulance and a life-long farm and park neighbor with us to share his reminiscences about Farmer Robbins and his farm. There will be presentations on the group's accomplishments over the past year and the election of the board of directors, followed by a special celebration. This year marks a special birthday for two of our founders: Oakes Plimpton and Roly Chaput.
- Spring Cleanup & Kite Day-------Saturday, May 4th, 9am
Bring your trowels, rakes, leaf rakes, shovels and pruning shears and meet your neighbors at the Park! And while we're there, we'll celebrate the crocus, daffodils and tulips planted at Robbins Farm Park last fall! At 1pm, bring you kites as well and hope for good wind at one of the area's best kite-flying locations. If you come early and help in the cleanup, you'll get a free kite.
