Canton Woods Senior Center: Thanks to local organizations for supporting center

If you live or work in Baldwinsville, you know Baldwinsville is a very generous community. The center always welcomes and appreciates the community’s generosity. I wish to thank the Rotary, who recently hosted a picnic at Canton Woods for well over 100 seniors. The center also thanks youth from the Community Wesleyan Church for volunteering their time to weed the center’s garden areas.

EDITORIAL: Look out for Lyme

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Lyme disease is the fastest growing vector-borne infectious disease in the United States. It infects about 300,000 people a year, roughly 10 times more Americans than previously reported. The number of cases reported annually has increased nearly 25-fold since national surveillance began in 1982, making it a huge public health problem. So what should we do about it? To start, we should educate ourselves about the problem.

LETTER: Marching Bees bring back memories

To the editor: My mom just sent me a clipping she’d held on to awhile, which was a letter from Dr. David Hamilton, Superintendent of Schools, and Casey Vanderstouw, marching band director, thanking alumni of the B’ville Marching Band for the years of support. That stirred quite a few emotions for me, and on behalf of many alumni, just wanted to share a ‘way back then’ moment.

Library focus: Stay busy and dry at BPL

The combination of summer reading signup (still in progress) and the monsoon season kept things extremely lively at the library last week. I’m hoping that the rain ceases, but if it doesn’t we have plenty of activities and tasty takeouts at the library, both in the building and online.
