SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
On behalf of the Village of Tivoli, I want to take this opportunity to invite you to Tivoli Day 2011, “Celebrating Local Talent.” The Village of Tivoli and our surrounding area is fortunate to have so many talented and gifted artists, crafters, and musicians. This year we celebrate that talent by featuring the works of those that help to deﬁne our community’s character. In addition, I am proud and grateful that so many of our local civic organizations have lent their time and support to ensure a successful celebration again this year. My sincere thanks to our sponsors, volunteers, village personnel, and the many who work tirelessly each year to make Tivoli Day a source of community pride. I have often said that the words “Tivoli and community are synonymous.” I believe a day like Tivoli Day perfectly illustrates that sentiment. Thank you in advance for your participation and attendance, and for your support of the Village of Tivoli!
