History at Dairy Day

Cathy Wakeman's Dryden Town Talk visits the Dryden History House, and recommends its new model airplanes display as a good stop during Dairy Day this Saturday. (There are also some excellent new exhibits on raising chickens in Dryden.) Wakeman also notes tonight's event at Dryden Central School with Thousands of One, the Dryden Elementary performance of "Once Upon a Mattress" tomorrow and Friday, and the Sertoma Golf Tournament on June 30th.

Briefly in Dryden notes that the Dryden Swim Team will be raising funds for a new scoring and timing system with a chicken barbecue at Clark's next Saturday, June 17th.

In print, but not online, the Journal reports that Dryden Elementary School made it onto a Higher Performing/Gap Closing Schools, "recognized because during the 2004-05 school year they met all applicable State standards for English and math and also made Adequate Yearly Progress in English and math for two consecutive years. "

The Journal didn't take my advice about reporting Democratic and Republican Committee endorsements in parallel, so they give top billing for the candidates Republicans endorsed to candidates in competitive races. Maybe they were just embarassed by their previous approach?
