Community happenings

Cathy Wakeman's Dryden Town Talk emphasizes community events today. She starts with the work toward the Dryden Community Cafe, which will have a meeting tonight (and future Wednesday nights) at 7:00pm.

She also notes:

  • The Southworth Library book sale, which runs September 20th and 21st from 8:00am to 9:00pm and September 22nd from 9:00am to 1:00pm, all at the Dryden Fire Hall, 26 North Street in the Village of Dryden.

  • The Varna United Methodist Church chicken barbecue on Saturday, September 22nd at 4:00pm. They'll have both halves and meals available.

  • Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts will be selling popcorn throughout the town for their annual Trail's End fundraiser.

  • The Dryden Town Historical Society will be hosting Patti Kiefer's "Gallagher Hill: The Incomplete History of Lot 57", an exploration of the history along one area of Irish Settlement Road, on Tuesday, September 25th at 7:00pm at Dryden Village Hall, 16 South Street, Dryden. I've seen the notebook she's assembled and strongly recommend seeing this one - it should be great!

Emergency responders held an emergency communications workshop at TC3, focused on getting information out to the public rapidly and accurately.

It sounds like Cornell's new master plan will keep the university focused on its main campus, rather than expanding out into Dryden. (I've heard rumors of expansion toward Ellis Hollow as long as I've lived here.)
