Chocolates tomorrow, music tonight

This week's Dryden Courier stocks its front page with weekend events. They lead with an article on my favorite annual event, the Etna Chocolate Festival, which will be tomorrow, February 10th, from 10:00am to noon at Houtz Hall (map). I'm sad to report that I can't make it this year, but I strongly recommend it.

There's also a notice of an a cappella concert tonight at Dryden High School, including Beyond Measure and Ithaca College's Ithacappella. Tickets are $10, $8 for students and senior citizens. There's a photo from last weekend's Snowfest as well, and another inside the paper.

It's not in the Courier, but I should probably mention another event this weekend, Sunday's pancake breakfast at the Varna Community Center (map) from 8:00am to noon.

The editorial is happy about Governor Spitzer's budget, and there's a letter from the Dryden Senior Citizens thanking everyone who helped raise $3000 for the Dryden Kitchen Cupboard in the Salvation Army Kettle Drive. I like the closing sentence:

It is a blessing to be part of a community where sharing and caring for others is very important.

In sports, Dryden sophomore Tara Brenner is an athlete of the week for her performance in the pole vault, where she broke the school record and won first place. They have a separate report on the track meet. There's also a report on the Dryden boys basketball team's victory over Watkins Glen last week, and a report on the upcoming Lansing-Dryden game.

In the Groton section, there's a report on the schools meeting with legislators.

In Matt Cooper's Inside Dryden, he visits Klein's Archery.
