A survey team from Davey Research Group are visiting the City of Dunkirk during the month of August to help us work on a very exciting project. We invited the surveyors to the City to inventory and evaluate all the trees on city-owned property so they can determine how best we can maintain, preserve, and improve these beautiful natural resources. As part of the project, the surveyors will measure each tree and log it’s type and location for future planning, so if you see a surveyor in your neighborhood please wave and say hello. They are identifiable by the vest and Davey uniform shirt they wear.

Music at the Point Sunset Concert Series

NEWS FLASH: Our new MUSIC AT THE POINT-Sunset Concert Series begins WEDNESDAY, August 7, 2019 with a HUGE performance by Lee Alverson-ELTON JOHN TRIBUTE! The show will begin at 6pm to 8pm and then we can all watch the sunset together at Point Gratiot in Dunkirk. We will try to use genres that haven’t been popular at MUSIC ON THE PIER-Summer Concert Series! Genres such as: Solo Acts, Duos, Jazz Bands, Barber Shop Quartets, Big Band Orchestras, etc. There have been many calls for these genres and we believe that Lake Erie Sunsets make the perfect pairing for these shows. An ELTON JOHN Tribute kicks off this “Sunset Series” on Wednesday, August 7, 2019 from 6-8pm…C’ya then!!! Then we watch the Point Gratiot Sunsets on Lake Erie! Bring a lawn chair! Please share to help spread the word. We may include a Water Slide for the kids and a couple of Food Vendors for this inaugural MUSIC AT THE POINT-Sunset Concert Series! Thank you for your support! Thanks to Revitalize Dunkirk for their collaboration and Chautauqua Nursing and Rehabilitation for their sponsorship!
