Not much Dryden news, many Dryden events

Today's Ithaca Journal has nothing on Dryden in its main news stories, but the weekly Briefly in Dryden section is full of happenings:

  • There's a Healthy Children in Literature & Arts program today from 3:30pm to 4:30pm at the Dryden Village Hall (map).

  • From 7:00pm Friday to 7:00am Saturday, Tompkins-Cortland Community College will be hosting the Relay For Life, which "is designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money for research, advocacy, education, and patient services programs for the American Cancer Society."

  • Dryden Seniors will be meeting on Monday, April 25th at the Neptune Hose Company (map) at 11:30am. Bring your own table service; lunch is $5 for members and $5.95 for non-members.

  • There will be an a cappella concert featuring local groups on April 30th at the Dryden High School auditorium starting at 8:00pm. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children.

  • The Town of Dryden Highway Department's scrap metal cleanup will run from May 2nd to May 31st, with a dumpster at the Town Highway Garage (map) open from 7:00am to 2:00pm Monday through Thursday and 7:00am to 11:00am on Fridays. (Also, I just noticed a photo gallery of highway department activity that's worth a visit.)

Also, in the sports section's Local Briefs, the Dryden Athletic Department is seeking volunteers to help supervise their Fitness Center. They need to cover the 6:00am to 7:15am shift Monday through Saturday and the 6:00pm to 8:00pm shift Monday through Friday. If you're certified in first aid, CPR, and AED and are interested in a free yearly membership for regular supervising, call the athletic department at 844-8694, extension 9243.
