Green Town Hall?

In this past week's Dryden Courier, Tony Hall asks "how green will the new building be?" He reports on NYSERDA's possible financial support for an energy-efficient Town Hall, and related green-building projects at the SPCA and the Town of Lansing Highway Department.

There's also an article on the Dryden Kitchen Cupboard, which is having a food drive, with the support of the Dryden Serteen Club. (As the article notes, they'll also take checks, sent to Dryden Kitchen Cupboard, PO Box 42, Dryden, NY 13053.) The Dryden Kitchen Cupboard, hosted by the Dryden Presbyterian Church (map), is open every Monday and Friday plus the last Saturday of the month from 11:00am to noon, as well as from 5:00pm to 6:00pm.

The Courier was popular at last week's Dryden Town Board meeting for its photos of the Band Showcase held earlier this month by the Dryden Recreation Department at Neptune Hose Company.

Courier photographer (and Etna resident) Skip Thorne took first place in the feature photo part of the New York Press Association Better Newspaper Contest, as well as second in sports photos and third in picture stories.

If you want to learn how to farm, Cornell Cooperative Extension will be having a series of workshops starting April 26th. Contact Debbie Teeter at 272-2292 for more information.

In sports, the Courier covers Dryden Track and Softball, with a photo of Dryden Softball player Kayla Seager.
