Webster community mailbag

2 May

mailbag iconCommunity Arts Day has officially been cancelled for this year.

Organizers were hopeful that the event, originally scheduled for April 18, would just have to be postponed, but that will not be possible given Gov. Cuomo’s announcement that schools will be closed for the remainder of the academic year.

Registrants, donors and sponsors will be contacted directly and refunded their payments.

I’m sure you’ve seen reports of the various birthday parades winding though our town and village neighborhoods. They’ve all been led by emergency vehicles driven by representatives from our incredible local emergency services.

If you’ve ever thought it would be great to organize one of these parades for one of your loved ones, you can.

All you have to do is contact NEQALS by writing to them at P.O. Box 905, Webster, 14580, or sending an email to info@neqals.org. You can also try sending them a message on Facebook.

Check out this gorgeous chalk artwork!

These photos were sent to me by Laureen Anthony-Palmer at the Webster Public Library. The creations were chalked in front of the library by two staff members and one of their daughters last week.

Laureen wrote,

One of the employees that worked on it is the person involved in all of the creative displays that you see at the library. She taught a Chalkboard Art class for us last year. She also created all of the chalkboard art signs at Lagoner’s Farm Market in Williamson. We are so lucky to have her on staff!

I continue to gets a lot of emails from the library. They may be closed, but they are not idle.

Here are a couple of highlights:

  • The Webster Public Library YouTube channel now features offerings for adults, not just videos for children and teens. Book reviews for adults and how-to tutorials have been added.
