Looking past the Dryden line

Today's Ithaca Journal doesn't have much directly about Dryden, but the paper has some articles on Groton and Caroline with Dryden connections. There's a profile of the Space family dairy farm in Groton, which notes that two of their children are attending Dryden schools. The Caroline Town Talk article for today leads with mention of the Tompkins County SPCA having a free rabies vaccination clinic tonight from 7:00pm to 9:00pm tonight at their facility on Hanshaw Road. It also notes that Bethel Grove Bible Church will have a commissioning service and reception for their new senior pastor, David M. Jones, Jr., on Sunday the 29th at 3:00pm.

All of this reminds me how my definition of "Dryden" has changed over time, because of the many overlapping lines and connections. Originally I used the Town lines as my guide, but since then it's grown to include McLean, anything in the Dryden School District, and nearby pieces of the Towns of Groton, Cortlandville, Virgil, Harford, Caroline, Ithaca, and Lansing. Municipal lines reflect political boundaries, but the connections go further.
