Chocolate time!

I was delighted to get the latest edition of the Etna Volcano newsletter, which announces that "It's Chocolate Time!"

The Etna Community Association will be having its 7th annual Chocolate Festival on Saturday, February 10th, from 10:00am to noon at Houtz Hall (map). I strongly recommend going to this event, as it combines delicious dessert with an opportunity to support a community center. I took pictures a couple of years ago, if you'd like some idea of what to expect.

Their calendar includes a few more events for the first half of the year:

  • An Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday, April 8th at 1:00pm

  • A Soup and Salad Supper on Wednesday, April 25th, from 5:30pm to 7:00pm.

  • The Annual Meeting, Tuesday, May 1st at 7:00pm.

  • Playground clean-up day on Sunday, May 6th, with a May 12th rain date.

"Happening in the Hamlet" reports on on a meeting Etna had with Fernando DeAragon, direction of the Ithaca Tompkins County Transportation Council on traffic problems, signage, and a possible footpath, and also talks about the Route 13/366 Corridor Management Study meeting. (There's a Pedestrian Traffic Survey in the newletter too.) They applaud the $2000 from the town for playground and park repairs as well as for fixing some holes in their parking lot. They're working to change their charter to a different nonprofit status, and are looking for potential new board members to help them out.
