Happy Labor Day!

August 31, 2022

Labor Day is upon us, and that means the non-official end to summer. Before the kids head back to school and temperatures start to cool down, this is your last chance to barbeque in the beautiful Pittsford community, head to the lake, and wear your favorite pair of white pants.
