Rotary Food Run, Presbyterian descendants

This past week's Dryden Courier leads with articles on the Dryden Rotary's Food Run through Clark's ShurSave grocery store. Tickets are $5, with the winning ticket drawn tomorrow night at 6:00pm. The run itself will be held the 19th, and proceeds will benefit a Dryden student studying overseas.

The Dryden Presbyterian Church is preparing for its bicentennial, and is looking for descendants of its thirteen original founders:

  • John and Julia Terpening,

  • James and Sara Wood,

  • Stephen and Rebecca Myrch,

  • Benjamin and Isabel Simmons,

  • Derek Sutfin,

  • Elizabeth Topping,

  • Abram and Asenath Griswold, and

  • Jerusha Taylor.

They're also, of course, looking for any information or memorabilia from the church, and planning a picnic celebration for June 15, 2008. David Smith is preparing a book on the church, the second-oldest in the county after Etna.

Inside the cover, there's an article on Brian Colbert, a fifth grader who just received an award for his help dealing with a fight on a school bus.

Matt Cooper's Inside Dryden reports on successful sales of the Dryden Barbershop Cookbook, which has gone in for a second printing. He notes the Music in the Park and Music in the Hollow events, and reports on Ithaca College's providing hot meals to the Freeville Food Pantry. He also lists a Fish or Steak Dinner at the VFW on July 20th, and mentions enjoying July 4th with "a group of fencers from the Varna Community Center."

In sports, Rex Hollenbeck of Dryden made the Finger Lakes Newspapers All-Star Team for Track, on the strength of his 100 meter and 200 meter dashes.
