11th Annual Family Swim and Movie Night Friday, July 12th, 2024, 6:15PM OPEN TO ATTLEBORO RESIDENTS ONLY FREE
RAIN DATE: July 19th
Great Family Fun!!! Join us as the Attleboro Recreation Department hosts our 10th Annual Family Fun Night at Spatcher Pool and Hayward Field on North Avenue.
Attleboro Recreation is pleased to partner with the Jeffrey Burgess Memorial Trust to present our 11th Annual Family Fun Night this summer. The Jeffrey Burgess Trust was established by Jeff’s family after his tragic death while performing his duties as a maintenance craftsman for the City of Attleboro’s Water Department on August 31, 2009.
The son of Mike and Donna Burgess, Jeff was a 1992 graduate of Attleboro High School. Jeff and his dad built a sports room dedicated to his favorite teams, the Patriots and Red Sox. “Jeff loved kids and sports and was the kind of guy that would go out of his way to help anyone who needed it” according to his dad, Mike.
100% of the money raised for the Jeff Burgess Trust goes directly to benefit kids and is a great way to continue Jeff’s good will.
Since it’s inception the Jeff Burgess Trust has benefitted thousands of local children and families. Funds have been used for field trips for youngsters at the Attleboro Youth Center; swim lessons; tennis lessons; various sports camps; Thanksgiving turkeys and fixings; gift cards for families in need and much more. For over a decade at Thanksgiving time the Burgess family conducted a food drive in Jeff’s memory to support local food kitchens.
In addition to swimming and a movie, Henry the Juggler will be performing. Henry has been dazzling audiences for over 30 years up and down the east coast with his amazing juggling skills. This is a free event open to Attleboro residents only.
Spatcher Pool will be open for family swim for Attleboro residents from 6:15pm - dusk. When it starts getting dark grab your lawn chair or blanket and stroll on over to Hayward Field where we will be showing Clifford the Big Red Dog on the big screen. Prior to the movie showing, Henry the Juggler will be performing.
Pre-registration is not required but you must be an Attleboro resident.
