May: Cherry Tree Planting at the Dorset (Veteran's Memorial) Park, South Burlington

South Burlington accepted JASV's offer of cherry tree planting in Dorset (Veteran's Memorial) Park. They accepted only Sargent cherry trees. The date isn't set yet since it is weather dependent. Plus it isn't easy to find Sargent cherry trees around here. We canceled it last year.

June: Potluck Picnic at the Sandbar Beach and JASV's Annual Meeting

This is an annual event. Since it is weather dependent, we will set the date when it gets closer. Usually it will be the last Saturday in June. We did it in July last year.
