Thank you to everyone who kicked off their summer with us at the Criterium and Brewfest on Sunday, June 9. We had a beautiful day filled with bike races, beer and family-friendly fun. We estimate that 7,000 attendees joined us throughout the day. We also had 72 volunteers that gave an average of 5.5 hours each for a total of 396 hours. Our volunteers, sponsors, supporters and attendees made this event a great success! We hope to see you at the rest of our community building events this year.
