SHOWING OFF MY TOWN - ARMONK NY

By
Education & Training with Performance Development Strategies

This is a fun challenge for me to show off my home town.  Actually I have two of them but I will start with my home town for the last 31 years, Armonk, NY  10504.

We have fun in Armonk all year--Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter.  Just three weeks ago the Lions Club hosted our Annual Fol de Rol.  This is a fun fair with rides, exhibits and events, and live entertainment.  Everyone stops by for a good time and the proceeds collected by the Lions help fund great projects in Armonk.

And here is this year live group Kidgoldie - Sage

 

 

Next up is the Armonk Concert Series.  These concerts are heard in the beautiful Wampus Park near the center of town.  In the past we have had local artists perform including veteran New York Yankees player Bernie Williams.  Bernie lives in Armonk. 

 The Wampus Brook Park is a beautiful setting near the center of town.  It is great spending a summer night there listening to local talent.  People come with their chairs and blankets and bring food.  The local restaurants sometimes have tables there for those who want to buy food.  Of course, the highlight was listening to Bernie Williams play.

The Armonk Chamber of Commerce hosts a "Third Thursday of the Month" event in June, July, and August each year.  The next event night is Thursday July 18th and it will be The Armonk Car Show with classic cars and super cars displayed along with live music.

But what would summer be without a swimming pool.  A focal point in Armonk is the North Castle Town Pool.

When our children were younger they would spend summer days here and they were both on the swimming team.  The pool was recently rebuilt and is bigger and better than ever.  There are plenty of summer days to enjoy life in my home town Armonk, NY.

Morning Grant.

With the temperatures being what they are here, and of course the humidity, I'm limiting my exposure outside today.

Grant, what a delightful place Armonk is. I looked it up on the search engines - you must love it, to be so close to New York, and yet feel the charm of a small town, and Nature just within a walk away.

Hi Grant:

You did a terrific job showcasing Armonk. I can see why you have enjoyed living there for 31 years! Looks like you are having a car show this Thursday, the same night of our Classic Car Cruise Night in Encinitas. How ironic! Will you be there?
