TRY offers an amazing calendar of activities and events which bring fun to all members. In September, we celebrate the beginning of Fall with a Hayride and hotdogs night. From October until March, the first Friday evening of each month offers dances with a live DJ, followed on the second Friday evening by Fun Night ( i.e. bingo, crafts, popcorn and a movie, Monte Carlo night).  These options provide a relaxing environment for individuals ages 13 and up to socialize with old friends and make some new ones.  Santa Claus makes a scheduled visit on the first Friday evening in December, where everybody receives a gift and has a picture taken with the jolly ol’ elf.  We shake up the dance schedule by presenting the dinner and Prom evening on a special night in April. July hosts a week long day camp with nearly a one to one ratio of volunteer to member campers.  Transportation to and from camp and lunch are provided free of charge. Activities such as arts & crafts, swimming, fishing, athletic games, and more can be expected.  Additional events include September’s family picnic at North Park Lodge, March’s Athletics Day at Wexford Elementary School, April’s Welcome Spring Egg Hunt at Pine Park, June’s Knights of Columbus baseball tournament (our members serve as special coaches) at Vestal Field, and August’s Wildwood Highlands Day with game and ride tokens provided. There is NEVER a charge for TRY members to participate in any of our events or activities.

Athletics Day

A morning filled with all different sports activities, each with a point value that converts into metals. Lunch is served, followed by an afternoon of team activities.  The day ends with a metal ceremony where every individual is honored in a particular category. Registration is requested.

Hayride and Hotdogs

A great evening of fun starts off with a hayride in a sided wagon (for safety), usually including some off key singing. Rides continue throughout the evening. Hotdogs are roasted by the members and fellowship is shared by all. This activity is held at the Family Resource Center.

Welcome Spring Egg Hunt

Enjoy an afternoon in the warm spring like temperatures, looking for hidden eggs with surprises in each find. Along with the egg hunt, each participant is encouraged to visit all of the many games and activity stations set up around the designated area at Pine Community Park in Wexford. RichMar Rotary provides lunch which includes hot dogs, chips, cookies, and a drink. Registration is requested.

Bowl-A-Thon

This is a unique activity which originated as a fund raiser at Commodore Perry Bowling Lanes. It is now a free activity comprised of up to 3 games of bowling. Lunch is provided. The participants are encouraged to continue with the fund raising aspect and are recognized for their devoted efforts. Registration is requested.

Fun Night

Fun nights consist of a variety of fun activities. Movie night is a time to enjoy that perfect  PG movie indoors with popcorn and drinks.  Members may bring their own chairs and blankets to create their own comfort. Bingo night is a favorite activity supported by many volunteers, where ALL members win at least one prize.  Drinks and a snack end the evening. Craft nights pair volunteer assistance with the member’s personal creative touch to make homemade treasures that are taken home that evening.  All supplies are provided.  Snacks and drinks end the evening. Carnival night presents that perfect fun atmosphere with games and relay races, concluding with prizes, drinks and snacks. Be sure to check the upcoming events calendar for these activities.

Family Picnic

Fall and family make for a wonderful afternoon at North Park Lodge in Allison Park, PA. Parents are invited to sit back and relax as everybody enjoys a catered picnic lunch, accompanied by music and other fun activities. Additional family members are welcome to join in the festivities at a minimal charge. RSVP is requested.

Dances

Dance the night away to music provided by a DJ which always spins the member’s favorite music. Each month’s dance has a theme in which members are encouraged to dress accordingly to blend into the mood of the evening. When the music stops, members rest their weary feet with a cool beverage and snack. Be sure to check the upcoming events calendar for the monthly theme.

Prom

Experience a wonderful evening of dinner and dancing. Special music is part of the evening, as well as photos with your friends. Attire is anywhere from casual, to Sunday best, to fancy. This is a night to make memories.

Camp

TRY Camp takes place during the last week of July at the Family Resource Center. This week long camp runs from 10AM to 2PM, Monday through Friday. Transportation is available if needed - a bus picks up the members and safely gets them to and from TRY camp each day. As soon as each member arrives, their fun filled day begins. In the mornings, all members rotate through 4 different activities such as fishing, crafts, shows, petting zoo, etc. In the afternoon, we have fun with interactive group activities such as a pool party, bingo, dancing, etc. Lunch is provided each day. Camp is completely cost free to all TRY members. We look forward to building friendships and making everlasting memories each year! Registration is necessary!
