Genesee Valley Hunt Races @ Race Grounds
Oct 9 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

stevensprint2007We’ve got our eyes on October 9, 2021 and we’re really hoping to SEE YOU THERE! Planning has started…so pencil it into your calendar for the 2nd Saturday in October!

The Genesee Valley Hunt Races and Fall Festival is a great way for the entire family to spend the day in a beautiful outdoor setting just north of Geneseo, NY. The Hunt Races have been hosted here for over 120 years, and some of the finest steeplechase trainers on the eastern seaboard bring their horses here to race in this pastoral setting.
But the Hunt Races and Fall Festival isn’t just about horses—it’s about dogs and canine events, too. There are Terrier and wiener dog races, a jumping contest, agility courses, sled dog demos, and of course the Parade of the Genesee Valley Hunt foxhounds. Leashed dogs are more than welcome to attend the event, and some people say that dog-watching is just as much fun as watching the horses!
There’s lots for the kids to do (including stick horse races and pony rides), food and drink vendors, wine and craft beer tasting, shopping, music and more. It’s like an old-fashioned country fair with a race track instead of a midway, and there’s something for everyone to enjoy!

Tuesday Preschool Storytime @ Wadsworth Library
Oct 12 @ 11:15 am – 11:45 am


Welcome to in-person Preschool Storytime!

• In order to keep class sizes small we are requiring that all children, siblings, and caregivers register for storytime. Participants will register for a three week session beginning in June, with a limited number of people per class.
• In accordance with CDC guidelines fully vaccinated individuals are no longer required to wear masks in the library. Children and adults who are not vaccinated should continue to mask.

• Miss Sarah will greet storytime classes in her mask, remove it while reading stories, and re-mask for the craft and activities. This will allow her to better promote early literacy skills and be clearly heard.

Please register by calling 585-243-0440. Spaces are filling quickly. If you have questions or concerns please call the phone number listed above or email Children’s Librarian Sarah Matthews at smatthews@pls-net.org. We can’t wait to see you!
