Dryden Old Home Days 2004

Elsie Gutchess sent a letter that she's also sent to the Cortland Area Tribune, asking for help with planning and putting on Dryden Old Home Days this year, at the pavilion at Dryden Lake Park July 31st and August 1st.

Highlights of last summer: We had a good turnout of visitors, the community merchants donated great prizes and awards, young children participated in races, local papers gave us great coverage, we ate and drank, boated on the lake, sang and danced, took wagon rides, raced, meditated, exercised, walked the trails, and visited. The expenses were covered by a Community Celebrations grant from the County Tourism Board.
I have many ideas to make this a great event for all Drydenites and visitors, from children to seniors. But I need the help of the community to plan and stage this event if it's to continue and possibly to become a yearly event.

Please contact Elsie (drydentownhistorian@cny.net) if you're interested in helping.

(I'm happy to publish letters and documents on upcoming events in Dryden. I think I'll generally publish an excerpt with a link to the full letter. I'll also happily publish public documents in a similar way. Comments about articles in the weblog should go in comments, not as submissions for separate articles.)
