Can i say how much i have enjoyed Sunset Thursdays. I want to let the Ptown staff know what a wonderful classy job they have done all season... So sorry we only have one week left... SALUTE
Youth Soccer Registration
Enjoyed listening to band Tidewater Drive at Portside.
Good morning! Just want to put this out there for the Summer RAYS programs...to inform the staff that the kids would be taken to the pool on 2 separate days after majority of parents have picked up their kids already is inconsiderate! I have watched children crying and disappointed after learning of the news upon arrival to the site this morning. I understand the circumstances call for safety measures to be put in place, but let's be proactive and not reactive. The number of kids hasn't changed that much since last week. Let's do better on behalf of the kids!
Love the guide that came in the mail!
