Grange honors, Dryden school renovations lead Courier

The front page of this week's Dryden Courier has a picture of the Dryden Middle School production of Fiddler on the Roof. The lead stories focus on the Dryden Grange's honoring of farmer and school board member Tom Miller and Red Cross volunteer Marylyn Brooks, as well as the Dryden School Board's effort to 'resurrect' improvements for music classes at the high school.

Inside, there's a story on Cassavant Elementary School's work on a project about stories of people who immigrated to the area, and an editorial on New York's Freedom of Information Law, a key tool for making this site work. There are also announcements of some events this weekend:

  • There will be a New England Contra and Square Dance tomorrow, April 30, from 8pm to 11pm at the Bethel Grove Community Center, 1825 Slaterville Road (map).
  • On Saturday, May 1, there will be a Jazz Dessert Night at Dryden Middle School gym, featuring the a cappella groups beyondmeasure and Dryden Voices. Tickets are $7.

There's also a article on Groton's efforts to turn a house over to Better Housing of Tompkins County for renovation, which seems an example worth learning from.
