The Back to the Beach Event was a great kick-off to the summer season! Tuesday evening at Shelburne Beach provided perfect weather as well as a beautiful sunset for the setting of the Parks and Recreation Annual Back to the Beach event. Hundreds showed up to enjoy the event and to help celebrate the official opening of the beach for the season. Many thanks to the Shelburne Fire Department for loaning the grill and offering support and to the Parks and Recreation Committee and their families for putting on another great community event!
