Intergenerational Band, Fish tales

This week's Dryden Courier takes a look at the Dryden Intergenerational Summer Band and Chorus, which formed to help Dryden celebrate its 1997 bicentennial but "discovered they were having too much fun to disband". They'll be performing August 14th at 7pm at Groton High School and August 15th at 3pm at Dryden High School.

They also take a look the Kids All-American Fishing Derby, which will be held at Dryden Lake July 15th from 9am to noon. The article leads off with tall tales from Town Supervisor Steve Trumbull, Town Councilman Christopher Michaels, and County Legislator Mike Lane, and includes fishing tips.

The paper also covers Tompkins County Trust Company's awarding the Raymond Van Houtte Teacher Award to Paula Thoma of Cassavant and Freeville elementary schools, and the awards TC3's Tech Prep program has given to local school districts.

On the opinion page, Lorrie Fitzgibbons of Freeville questions the incoming Dryden superintendent's pay package while Gabriel and Penelope Carpenter of Dryden contend that "Same-sex unions would be a detriment to our civilization, our families, our children and our future."
