FIELD OF DREAMS/HAVE A CATCH DAY
Is this Iowa? No it's Orangetown. Join the recreation staff as we return to the days of old when a catch with a family member helped form a bond that would last a lifetime. After having a catch on one of the Veteran's Park ballfields and listening to some great baseball themed songs, we will enjoy a meal and watch the movie Field of Dreams on a small screen in the park.
