What an absolutely devastating time of year. The leaves are dying like the summer’s potential, and every morning there’s a looming chill in the atmosphere and the word ‘September’ cuts like a cold knife through an over-ripened watermelon.

July 12th Sunday Afts

Our first Sunday Afternoon Races will be taking place tomorrow… this Sunday afternoon! It’s always a hoot. Typically, “Sunday Afts” (which is what the kids call it) starts at 1PM. However, we are sharing the date with the Sturgeon Point Union Church’s 100th Anniversary — an epic milestone in this village’s history. So as to not cause a schism, we will be pushing back…
