Brand New Open House Event!

On Friday, July 5th, Amberations will host an evening of entertainment with the lively sounds of Phil Pitroff and Friends. Anchors of the group are the brother and sister team of Phillip Pitroff on trombone and Caroline Pitroff on soprano saxophone. Phillip and Caroline are “music staples” of the CNY jazz scene, having played with the Lock 52 Jazz Band and the Harbor Lights Dance Band. They are in demand as solo artists around the area and enjoy jamming with a vast array of very talented friends! The July 5th program will range from Dixieland to Big Band Swing tunes, from “St. Louis Blues” to “Stardust”. You’re sure to enjoy your Friday evening with this entertaining group. Bring your friends, a favorite chair and your dancing shoes. Music will start at 7:30 PM.

If you have not yet visited Amberations, come a little early and take a peek. Our barn is adjacent to the Community Center. We will have volunteers on hand from 5 till dusk to show you around. We have animals, a pond teaming with frogs, sand for the kids (and kids at heart), a stream and hiking trails. Refreshments will be available; donations are appreciated.
