The Webster Marching Band’s first Bottle and Can Drive of the summer takes place this Saturday, June 4. And the exciting news is that the band is once again offering curbside pickup in addition to their regular drop-off option at Webster Schroeder High School.

You can drop your returnables off at Schroeder (875 Ridge Rd.) between 9:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., OR you can place them at the end of your driveway this Saturday morning, and someone will be by to pick them up.

If you won’t be around on Saturday it’s easy to schedule a pickup at your home. Log onto http://bit.ly/3tOdZht, fill out the short form and someone will be in touch. The next drive will be Aug. 13, so put it on your calendar now.

Challenger Miracle Field of Greater Rochester will be hosting the highly respected Disability Dream & Do Sports Camp (D3Day) on Saturday June 4.

The Disability Dream and Do (D3Day) sports camps were created by Dave Clark, the only pitcher in professional sports history to pitch on crutches, and Doug Cornfield, a former NCAA medal winning runner at Georgia, who himself had a child born with no arms. These camps allow professional players to interact with children with special needs in various drills and compete in sports with no limitations. 

D3 participants have an opportunity to hit, throw, catch and run the bases with instruction from the best regardless of anyone’s limitations. 

Lunch is provided for all participants, their family members and caregivers.

Space is limited, so be sure to sign up soon. There is no cost to D3 participants and their families. Click here to register and find out more. And if you’d like to read more about this outstanding program, click here.
