What a great unofficial start to summer! There is quite a bit to choose from to keep you busy (and get you out of that to do list).  We have a separate holiday event list you can check out too.

Here's what's up on Saturday:

The Southern Tier Antique Tractor Club is raising money by bringing in Doug's Fish Fry! It will be at Country Wagon Produce, Route 26 in Maine, from 11 am to 6 pm. There's nothing like a Doug's!

If you want chicken, the Endwell United Methodist Church, 3301 Watson Blvd., has you covered with a chicken barbecue from noon to 2 pm. It benefits Relay for Life.

The variety continues with Thompson United Methodist Church, Thompson,PA, hosting a roast beef supper at 5 pm. You can eat in or take out.

Enough food! let's think about cars and lots of them. The Cruisin' Buddies are holding their 11th annual car show from 10 am to 4 pm at Dorchester park, Route 26 in Whitney Point. Not only is the park a gorgeous place to hang out, but there will be tons of cars to view with special trophies being given out.

This sounds fun. The 1st Annual Grandma Jam Against Alzheimer's is at the Mosquito Lounge at 4 pm. It features the areas hottest DJ's facing off.

Plus, to help our furry friends, Rotary at the Market for True Friends Animal Welfare Center is happening at Ray's Market on Route 706 in Montrose,PA  from 10 am to 3 pm. You can buy all kinds of plants, vegetables and more. There will be food and some of the animals looking for forever homes from True Friends will be there too.

Beyond this weekend, I wanted to share two special events this coming week, since these organizations are dear to me:

The American Cancer Society Relay for Life Greater Binghamton is hosting an open house on Tuesday from 5:30 to 7 pm at 13 Beech Street in Johnson City. This is to start planning for Relay for Life events, including getting information about starting a team.

And the U.S. Marine Corps League's City Chicken Dinner is Thursday from 4 to 6 pm at the American Legion Post 80, 76 Main Street in Binghamton. It benefits high school scholarships, Wounded Warrior Project and Marines Helping Marines.

Feel free to email me with your upcoming community event.
