EMPTY BOWL PROJECT will beneﬁt the Newark Food Closet
For the third time since 2010, the Newark Art Department is tackling another highly ambitious and caring “Empty Bowls” project that will beneﬁt the Newark Food Closet. The 2010 and 2012 “Empty Bowls” soup, bread buffet and silent art and craft auction events raised $11,500 for the local food closet that used the money to purchase a new freezer and help stock its shelves. “Empty Bowls,” is a grassroots movement that various organizations, including schools, have been involved in since 1990 to help raise money each year to support food banks and soup kitchens throughout the nation in an effort to ﬁght hunger. As in 2010 and 2012, the April 24, 2014 soup and bread buffet and silent art auction will be the ﬁnal step in an ambitious and lengthy project in which many students, staff and others create ceramic bowls to help prepare for the event. For a modest monetary donation, the bowls are selected by people attending the simple soup and bread dinner with the hope that each will serve as a reminder that others may not be able to afford to put food on their table and in their own bowls. NHS art teacher Courtney Dentel will be the overseer of the fundraising event again this year. “By participating in this service learning project, our students are creating art to make a difference in the lives of many of our community members,’’ Dentel said. Citing January 2013 through October 2013 Newark Food Closet statistics , Dentel said: 367 Newark/Arcadia households received food during that period. Of that number, 648 adults and 390 children, from infancy to age 18, received food. Preparation for the culminating event involves a lot of work and a lot of students. This year: NHS Pottery and Advanced Pottery students will create about 200 bowls on a wheel or by hand building. Other high school art classes will make about 110 bowls using the hand building method. Newark Middle School art classes, including Lisa Stringer’s advanced sixth and seventh Studio in Art classes, Amy O’Connor’s advanced eighth grade computer graphics and design art classes and her general seventh and eighth grade art classes, will hand build about 125 bowls. NHS computer graphics students will design tee shirts, event programs, posters and tickets for the “Empty Bowls” event in April. Lincoln and Perkins School students will make placemats for the event. The NHS Art Club will make about 20 bowls, create some silent art auction pieces and will help O’Connor, who also teaches art at Kelley School, host a family bowl painting night at Kelley School. The district Art Department and the NHS Art Club will host a bowlpainting party for faculty and staff interested in becoming involved. More details will be forthcoming. In preparation to the last two “Empty Bowls” events, many community members and business owners graciously donated money and a variety of supplies like bottled water, Styrofoam bowls, paper coffee cups, coffee, tea, sugar, creamer, plastic spoons, napkins and more for the culminating event. Dentel is hoping there will be a similar, generous outpouring this year. Local artists and craft makers are also encouraged to donate their creations to the silent art and craft auction, with all proceeds beneﬁting the Newark Food Closet. She also noted the Newark Kiwanis Club plans to help at the “Empty Bowls” event this year. Others are welcome to volunteer to help. Tickets for the “Empty Bowls” event will be $10 per person. For more information contact Courtney Dentel at Courtney.dentel@ newarkcsd.org, Amy O’Connor at Amy.email@example.com or visit the Newark Art Department Facebook page and read about the event at https://www.facebook.com/pages/EMPTY- BOWLS-NewarkArt-Department/335314601127?ref=hl.

AREA CHURCHES receive sacred sites grants
The New York Landmarks Conservancy has announced 23 Sacred Sites Grants totaling $275,000 awarded to historic religious properties throughout New York State including $2,000 to First Presbyterian Church of Ontario Center and $1,500 to North Ontario United Methodist Church in Ontario, New York. “It’s vital to renew and repair religious buildings,” said Peg Breen, President of The New York Landmarks Conservancy. “Not only do these sites convey their communities’ history, they serve their neighborhoods today with food pantries, nursery schools, concerts and a variety of worthy programs.” About the churches First Presbyterian Church of Ontario Center received a Sacred Sites grant of $2,000. Built in 1914, the church is a representative example of early 20th century religious architecture. Built of rusticated concrete blocks, the church is an unusual application of inexpensive, modern materials. The church is detailed with a massive corner tower topped with a crenellated parapet and Gothicarched stained glass windows. The church and adjacent parish hall are used for church-related activities and by the community for scout troop meetings, aerobic classes, and quilting club gatherings. In addition, the church serves as a site for a summertime service camp for high school students that alternates among various sites in the US. The North Ontario United Methodist Church received a Sacred Sites grant of $1,500. The church is a simple, gable-roofed brick structure, with Italianate brick corbeling, and a two-stage steeple visible for a considerable distance. A stone over the doorway reads “Centenary First Methodist Church, Ontario, 1866.” The church was constructed of locally made clay bricks and quarried stone. Known as the Brick Church, it is a contributing component of the Heritage Corners Historic District, a nineteenth century hamlet consisting of a school and mill. The district is an intact example of settlement, once prevalent in rural New York State communities. The church sponsors meetings for local boy scouts, the Garden Club of Ontario and the Historical Society Museum. The high school uses classrooms for AP honors testing. Weddings and funerals also take place in the building. Annually, the church hosts a bazaar, a bake food sale and a dinner to showcase the church to the community. The New York Landmarks Conservancy has led the effort to preserve and protect New York City’s architectural legacy for 40 years. Since its founding, the Conservancy has loaned and granted more than $40 million, which has leveraged more than $1 billion in 1,550 restoration projects throughout New York, revitalizing communities, providing economic stimulus and supporting local jobs. The Conservancy has also offered countless hours of pro bono technical advice to building owners, both nonproﬁt organizations and individuals. The Conservancy’s work has saved more than a thousand buildings across the Cstate, protecting New York’s distinctive cultural heritage for residents and visitors alike today, and for future generations.

Canal visitors get warm welcome
Harbor hosts greet boaters at Palmyra
By Tammy Whitacre | MESSENGER POST MEDIA
When a boater arrived at the Port of Palmyra with a dog in need of some special care, volunteer harbor host Jack Wisner offered the animal’s appreciative owners a ride to Rite Aid. “That’s over and above,” Vicky Daly said. “But that’s Jack.” Wisner and Daly are among the 10 volunteers spending 90 minutes each day at the Port of Palmyra, meeting and greeting the people arriving at the marina. The village has been calling for volunteers to act as harbor hosts to fill time slots from 7:30 to 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. every day at the port. Wisner, now retired, heard about the concept from Daly. Now retired, he decided that since he likes the water and loves the boats, the job was a good ﬁt. “They (the village) keep the place immaculate,” he said sitting on a bench, not far from Muddy Waters Cafe, on a pleasant summer morning. “It’s beautiful.” Wisner keeps a small journal about the people he has met since he became a harbor host. John and Ann Knox out of Toronto were sailing the Lady Edwyn to Buffalo after visiting Oswego. And there was Jonathan Colenick from Morro Bay, Calif., in a 38-foot tug-like boat called Valentine, which he sailed down from California, “somehow,” Wisner said, then to Texas and to the East Coast, traveling along the Oswego Canal to the Erie Canal to Buffalo and back again. Each visitor has his or her own story, and they are more than happy to share it with Wisner as he tours their boat. Then they pose for a photo, which Wisner is happy to email to them. During their stay, the harbor host on duty hands out a variety of pamphlets that give visitors the ﬂavor of Palmyra, Daly said. The village brochure includes a map and a list of restaurants and sites.
They also receive a Historic Palmyra and Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints visitor site pamphlets. The children are offered a canal-themed coloring book and pack of crayons, she added. Harbor hosts are there to answer questions, provide directions and generally make people feel welcome. “It’s just one more thing to greet people with and to help them remember us,” Daly said. “It’s an absolutely beautiful way to spend 90 minutes. If you like to chat, you’ll enjoy this.” And remembering Palmyra is what the concept of a Harbor Host is all about. Daly said she had seen the idea in other canal towns, like Fairport, where an employee acts as host. But it was Bob Stopper, a huge advocate for the canal in Lyons, who pushed Daly to bring the idea to Palmyra. Daly worked closely with Mayor Chris Piccola and the Village Board to iron out the details, and today, Daly said the response from volunteers is promising. Wisner volunteers 12 to 16 times a month and Daly and her husband, Bob, have assigned themselves the “stop and check duty” to catch visitors when a greeter isn’t on hand. “This is a win/win/win,” Daly said. “Our visitors appreciate being assisted; the greeter enjoys the conversation; Palmyra as a whole beneﬁts by being seen as a friendly and interesting place to visit.” There are still days available this month, particularly for 4:30 to 6 p.m. time slots and for the coming months. Harbor hosts will be at the marina through October and again in May, keeping in time with the canal season. Anyone interested in volunteering may call the Village Hall at 597-4849 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and put “Harbor Host” in the subject line. “It gets me up and out,” Wisner said. “All you have to do is make one person appreciative and it makes your day.”

Book explores Macedon’s history
By Tammy Whitacre | MESSENGER POST MEDIA
A new book takes readers on a pictorial walk through Macedon’s history. “Macedon” is the newest addition to Arcadia Publishings’s Images of America series. Author Reginald W. Neale brought together several sources in a compilation that tells of Macedon’s establishment and the people who lived there. “One thing that makes Macedon special is the many individuals who are committed to maintaining the records of its history,” Neale said. “Macedon Town Historian June Hamell oversees a large collection of historical material, and is also the curator of the Bullis Collection at the Macedon Library. Village Historian Sally Millick conducts walking tours of historically signiﬁcant locations in Macedon. Sandy Pagano is the president of the Macedon Historical Society, which houses a huge collection of artifacts and documents at the former Macedon Academy building in Macedon Center.” But it was Neale’s discovery of a huge collection of historical images of the town that decided him on writing the book. “Most people have never seen these,” he said of the book’s photos.
“Macedon resident Hod Conant and his son, Dan, graciously shared some images from their magniﬁcent collection of photo postcards.” Neale grew up in Palmyra and graduated from the Palmyra-Macedon School District. His love for history grew over the years, but it wasn’t until he retired that he was able to put pen to paper and write about it. His first book, Farmington, where Neale and his wife now call home, was published by Arcadia Publishing in 2011. The people in Macedon’s history have been playing key roles in important social issues for many years. Notably, it was Macedon residents who signed the Declaration of Sentiments in Seneca Falls that led to women’s right to vote. In the late 1800s, the village was a manufacturing center for agricultural equipment. Major local employer Bickford & Huffman’s “Farmer’s Favorite” grain drill made in Macedon is credited with opening up the western plains to settlers, Neale said. The Erie Canal also had an enormous inﬂuence on the growth of the community as an outlet for agricultural machinery and goods to be shipped across the continent, he added. continued on page 15...
Wayne County Community Guide • Page 14 • Week of February 23, 2014 Education was important to the early residents of Macedon. The Macedon Academy was well known throughout the area for its exemplary standard of higher education. Founded in 1841, the Academy was designed as an intermediate level of education, between the district school and college. The Academy adhered to very strict doctrines, and for more than ﬁfty years had a great inﬂuence in guiding the morals and the higher education of young men and women in the area.
Wayne County Community Guide • Page 15 • Week of February 23, 2014 continued from page 9... Health Network. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work closely with residents of Clyde and Savannah to ﬁnd out the best way to facilitate health improvement. In planning for this project, it was clear that both communities want to do this work,” Mary Lee Bourbeau of CCE of Wayne County. Sandi Bastedo, CCE and coordinator of the project, and Lisa O’Dell, health educator from Wayne County Public Health, have already distributed yellow surveys throughout Clyde and Savannah at town and village ofﬁces, the public library, local businesses, schools, and churches. Please take a few minutes to ﬁll out the survey and tell us what you like about your community and what would improve the health of your community. We need Galen, Clyde and Savannah residents to become part of the healthy changes in their communities. Please contact Sandi Bastedo at 315-331-8415 ext. 108 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or would like a survey sent directly to your house. Lisa and Sandi are very excited to be working with the residents of these communities and anticipate great response to the survey. continued from page 13.... “In many ways, the story of Macedon is similar to other villages that were settled about the same time,” Neale said. “Quakers and other New Englanders bought land in the giant Phelps & Gorham Purchase as soon as treaties with the Native Americans made it possible.” The book boasts over 200 images, including the history of Macedon Academy, founded in 1841, that served the area for 50 years and drew students from all over due to its curriculum and reputation. The building still stands today as home to the Macedon Historical Society. Photos of the Drill Works, stores on Main Street that no longer exist, influential graduates of Macedon Academy, and photos of Barge Canal construction are among Neale’s favorites in the book. “I hope (the book) will raise public awareness of Macedon’s rich history and historical importance,” he said. The 128-page, soft cover book is available at several area retailers and online retailers and at www.arcadiapublishing.com.
