LETTER FROM THE DIRECTOR:
While we don’t like to admit it, Fall and Winter are fast approaching! Besides Summer, Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. I love seeing all the beautiful colors and cooler weather. I hope you all enjoyed your summer time activities with family and friends. We truly enjoyed our summer here in the parks, and enjoyed seeing all of you out enjoying what the Sandwich Park District has to offer.
This summer we had numerous fun programs and events to offer. As always, we have an amazing turnout for our Freedom Day’s Parade and Fireworks. It warmed my heart to see so many of Sandwich’s residents out celebrating our country’s independence! Though the summer is coming to an end, we can all be excited and ready for the fall and early winter activities. READ MORE
