Nature preserve, Supplies for Success

This week's Our Towns section in the Ithaca Journal takes a look at the creation of the O.D. von Engeln Preserve in Malloryville, which hosts pitcher plants, carnivorous sundews, and native orchids. Its two miles of trails are attracting a "steady stream" of visitors.

In this week's Dryden Town Talk, Cathy Wakeman talks about Adam Pamel's Eagle Scout project, the "Supplies for Success" program which is collecting school supplies and cash for supplies for K-2 students who need them. She also discusses beautification in the Village of Dryden and the summer "Music in the Park" concert series. The Burns Sisters are playing tonight at Montgomery Park in the Village of Dryden.

Dryden briefs report that the First National Bank of Dryden's Cortland office is now open, and that the Dryden High School Class of '84 will be having a reunion July 9th and 10th.

For some reason, the paper has repeated last week's statistical sidebar, which still announces that 49.94% of Dryden residents are male while 50.06% are female.

At the county level, the Legislature passed five resolutions for moving forward with a new emergency communications radio tower on Ithaca College property.

Finally, if you see helicopters overhead, they may be inspecting power lines for NYSEG.
