School to summer; changes at WHCU

This week's Dryden Courier looks at the transitions from the school year to the summer. There's an article on the Montgomery Park summer concert series, which starts this coming Wednesday at 6:30pm with the Burns Sisters. A full list of the concerts (and everything else on the recreation calendar) is available at the Recreation Department site.

There's also a piece on the recent Dryden Board of Education meeting, focusing on honors and farewells given to retirees, as well as a list of the Teachers of the Year, including Mary Kay Hickey, Karen Cunningham, Kay Newhart, and Janet Redfield.

There's a nice collection of Dairy Day photos, starting with a calf getting a snack on the cover, with more on the inside.

In Anecdotes and Brevities, Harry Weldon writes a thorough history of the Freeville United Methodist Church's many physical changes over the years.

WHCU has a new news director, Geoff Dunn, who has worked in the area at WTKO and News Center 7. WTKO, 1470 AM, is also changing format, becoming an Air America station and changing its call letters to WNYY.

In sports, a report on the New York State Track and Field Championships notes that sophomore Rex Hollenbeck placed third in the 100-yard dash and seventh in a later race, and Megan Stuttle won the long jump.
