Webster community mailbag

19 Jun

As summer kicks into gear, thanks to this stinkin’ virus, there’s not a lot happening in our town and village. But I have a few items to bring to your attention today.

First, a reminder about tomorrow’s “Summer Celebration, Re-Imagined” at the Webster Recreation Center. Naturally they can’t hold the usual celebration this year, so the folks at the Rec Center have come up with a fun alternative.

Here’s the information again:

2020 is the year of thinking differently – and town festivities are no exception. While we have made the tough call to cancel Summer Celebration this year, the Town of Webster Parks and Recreation Department is bringing our Webster community together that day…in a different way!

Introducing “Summer Celebration Re-Imagined”! On Saturday, June 20 from 12 p.m. to  – 2 p.mm come to the Rec Center, 1350 Chiyoda Drive, to pick up a FREE bag filled with surprise items to celebrate summer at home!

The bag distribution will be a drive-thru party in a parking lot! We can’t tell you everything we have in store for you… but we are encouraging you to pack up the family and come pick up a bag! (*Bonus points if your car is decorated in fun summer gear!*) So, even though we can’t be together this year, we can still celebrate!

**PLEASE NOTE** There is a limit to ONE (1) BAG PER CAR. Bags are available to the first 1000 cars from 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm or until supplies run out. Please wear a mask, remain in your car at ALL times and follow the traffic pattern.

narcanHere’s a great opportunity provided by WHEN, the Webster Health and Education Network and other local agencies.

It’s a virtual Narcan training. Participants will learn how to administer Naloxone in the case of a drug overdose, perhaps saving a life. Only 50 slots are available, and you can register online here. Check out the poster for more information.

As you have probably heard by now, the Webster CSD 2020-2021 school budget was passed by an overwhelming margin.

As a teaching assistant in the district, may I add my personal thank you for supporting your teachers, staff members and students during this very difficult time. It’s going to be hard enough trying to figure out how to keep everyone safe this fall while still delivering the quality education that Webster has come to be known for. Having to do that while worrying about where funding will come from would make that even harder.

Here are the details:

Budget = APPROVED       YES = 6,197 (62%), NO = 3,808 (38%)

Proposition #1 for purchase of school buses = APPROVED     YES = 6,037 (60%), NO = 3,950 (40%)

Board of Education Election (THREE positions):

    • Janice Richardson = 4,430
    • Mike Alt (incumbent) = 4,304
    • Mike Suffoletto (incumbent) = 4,239
    • Jennifer Birdsong-Ng = 4,067
    • Shanna LaDelfa = 3,811
    • Maria Cortes = 3,706
    • John Hutchings = 1,727
