Recreation meeting in Varna Wednesday

I'm still way behind, but this, from County Legislator Martha Robertson, is definitely worth posting quickly:

If you're interested in the future of recreation in Dryden - what kinds of programs and facilities we have for children, teens and adults - PLEASE JOIN US this WEDNESDAY, July 9! We will be at the Varna Fire Station, Turkey Hill Rd., at 7:30.

The Town is working on a master plan for recreation, to provide a vision for the next twenty years! NOW is your chance to have input! Help us dream a little, and tell what YOU think should be in our town's Recreation Master Plan.

  • Do we need more soccer fields?
  • Would you like to see a theater program for teens?
  • Do you think we need a tots-n-parents program?
  • Should we build a center for indoor recreation?
  • What would YOU like to see???

Children, teens, seniors, ALL AGES are encouraged to come!

For more information, or to offer your ideas if you can't make the meeting, please contact:

Melissa Bianconi
Town of Dryden Recreation Director

I was very impressed by the similar meeting at Dryden Town Hall in May, and am very curious to see what suggestions people will make at this one.

Sungiva at four months

There seem to be two schools of thought about Living in Dryden at the moment. One wonders why I'm so distracted by our new baby and not posting. The other wants all Sungiva photos, all the time, and wonders why I'm not posting enough of those. Hopefully this will help those folks!

Yesterday was Sungiva's four month sort-of-birthday, which she celebrated pretty happily. She's continuing to grow beautifully, finding new ways to entertain us and herself.
