I thank the residents of Granby for all of their support during my seven years as the Director of Recreation and Leisure Services for the Town of Granby. I will be leaving my position here at the end of June and I will take with me many wonderful memories of special events such the Flashlight Egg Hunts and Trunk or Treat at SBP and the popular Comedy Nights at the Holcomb Farm North Barn Pavilion.
