The 5th Anniversary
Pittsfield has a recreation area where the Picnic is held, but no recreation department. The proceeds from the Picnic are used to support improvements and repairs to this area so we can continue to providing a space that is fun for kids big and small.
The current focus is to improve the basketball court, built through volunteer efforts in the mid 1970's. This is quite a large undertaking and we will continue to raise funds to see this project through. We are happy to announce new basketballs will arrive in time for the event and in Sept we will take the first steps in this project with new basketball system installations. We will share pictures at the Picnic.
In 2013, with the help of volunteers, we installed two sets of horseshoe pits and added the "Pittsfield Strong" horseshoe tournament to our event for the "big" kids. Sign up at the pits that day, $5 per person, teams of two.
