Dryden Youth Commission; County Legislature organizes

In this morning's Ithaca Journal, Cathy Wakeman's Dryden Town Talk visits the Dryden Youth Commission, which "is on the front lines of creating successful programs for our kids, and is seeking a volunteer who lives in the Town of Dryden to help out."

Briefly in Dryden lists three upcoming events:

  • The Dryden School District is seeking applications for the vacancy on its school board. The position will last from February to May 16th, the next election. This position is open because of John Curatolo's resignation.

  • Dryden Senior Citizens will meet on Monday, January 9th, at the Dryden Fire Hall. Seating starts at 11:30am with the meal at 12:15pm.

  • The Varna Community Association will be having a pancake breakfast on Sunday, January 8th, from 8:00am to noon at the Varna Community Center.

  • Planning is underway for the 1996 Dryden High School reunion.

  • There will be a senior services forum on Thursday, January 12th from 11:00am to 3:00pm at Dryden Fire Hall.

The County Legislature held its organizational meeting last night. New Dryden County Legislator Mike Hattery showed that being down 11-4 is no reason not to indulge in partisanship, as he nominated Republicans Frank Proto for chair and Mike Sigler for vice-chair. Neither won - Tim Joseph remained chair and Leslyn McBean-Clairborne became vice-chair. (New legislators don't yet have web pages - I'll add links when available.)

Hattery and Legislator Martha Robertson were both named to the Tompkins County Industrial Agency board. Robertson will be chairing the Planning, Development, and Environmental Quality Committee, and serving on the Public Safety and Health and Human Services Committees. Hattery will also be on the Public Safety and Health and Human Services Committees. Newcomer Tyke Randall, whose district includes Groton and a corner of Dryden, will be chairing the Facilities and Infrastructure Committee, and serving on the Planning, Development, and Environmental Quality Committee.

In news around Dryden, there's an article on more testing coming to schools, and the print edition talks about defining the scope of the Cornell/Town of Ithaca transportation study.
