"President's Message"
Your support is needed
It’s been nearly a quarter cen-
tury that our home has been at595 Long Pond Rd. Like any home,a few repairs, maintenance andupgrades are needed now andthen, and our home is no excep-tion. The old farm house needs anew roof (
Newcomb exhibit hall roof was replaced two years ago) 
, some windows require repairs orreplacement, the back exit stairway needs to be re-built, the front porch needs painting and recentlwe had an emergency plumbing issue in our sec-ond floor bathroom. Our dedicated volunteers cando some of the work, but unfortunately all theseprojects take money and as everyone knows, gov-ernment grants are few and far between. So this year our Strawberry & Dessert Tasting Festival willplay a major part in raising funds for our capital im-provements projects. Join us on Monday, June 18
. For the small feeof $6.00 you will enjoy strawberry shortcake, andvisit area vendors who will be offering samples of their dessert products. D-J Paul Anken will be ourMC,
Flying’ Brian and Miss Understood will keepthings going with adult and children’s
singing couple “Music & Memories” will perform
lively entertainment and a Karate demonstrationwill be featured during the evening. Door prizes willbe given out throughout the evening and thepopular Chinese raffle will return with chances towin fabulous prizes. Hots, burgers, etc. will also beavailable for purchase.We will also feature information displays fromseveral local organizations, including the GreeceCommunity & Senior Center and the Veterans Out-reach Center. The museum will be open with a spe-cial Civil War exhibit from the Military History Soci-ety of Rochester. Last year nearly 500 of our guests
enjoyed, what we considered, the Town’s best
neighborhood festival.Your support is crucial to maintain our standardof quality programs & events and continue to pre-serve our artifices and documents for future genera-tions. We sincerely hope that you will join on June18
and help us
“preserve the past for the future”.
Sauers, President

Memorial Day Parade
The colorful parade put on by the Town of Greece is held on Memorial Day and the best "seat inthe house" is in front of your Greece Museum. Bring your chairs, park your cars in our lot, and if the weather is nice, you can enjoy a picnic lunch near the gardens out back. This is a new idea -it's free and fun. Bring friends, too. Call
