Amenia-Wassaic Community Outreach Summer Program
The first year of the Amenia-Wassaic Community Outreach Summer Program was a huge success! Sponsored by the Amenia-Wassaic Community Organization and the Maplebrook School Community Outreach Pilot Program, over 36 kids, ages 3-13, participated in the month-long program. The program provided an enriching and engaging recreational experience for children while enhancing their physical, social and emotional skills through a variety of group activities. The Program was a community effort, made possible by Maplebrook School, Silo Ridge Field Club, Amenia Free Library, Cousins Café, Fudgy’s Ice Cream and Four Brothers Pizza Inn. Huge Thanks to the team!
