Methodist Church serving meals

This week's Dryden Courier is, as usual, packed with Dryden news.

There's an article on the Dryden United Methodist Church, which is serving a free meal on the fourth Wednesday of every month. They'd like to expand to more nights, if there is demand.

There's also an article on the February Town Board meeting, and the Town's search for more grants. The Board held its first public hearing toward an application for a Community Development Block Grant, building on success with them in 1995, 1997, and 1999.

The editorial urges residents of local villages to vote, which for Village of Dryden residents will be March 18th.

On Campus notes that Adam Sutton of Dryden earned a Master of Arts in Teaching from SUNY Binghamton, and Samantha Vitale was named to the Dean's List at SUNY Oneonta.

In "View From a Dryden Window", Kelly Horrocks reflects on the history in local cemeteries, especially Green Hills Cemetery in the Village of Dryden.

In Sports, Dryden swimming placed fifth in the Class B championships, and Tara Brenner of the Track team was named an athlete of the week for setting "the Section IV indoor reord during last weekend's championship at Cornell."

There's an article called "Crossed Wires at Bethel Grove," which looks at some recent conflict over who is running the Bethel Grove Community Center and complications that has created for the Town.
