Memorial Day Parade details

18 May

I’m noticing that people are beginning to search for information about the Village of Webster’s annual Memorial Day Parade, so I thought it would be best to post all the details I know about it sooner rather than later.

Basically, everything will be running as it has in every other (non-COVID) year.

  • 9:00 a.m.:  All groups participating in the parade will assemble at Spry Middle School on Sanford Street. All active duty and ex-service men and women are invited to take part in the parade. Any veterans who would like to ride in the bed of an Army truck are asked to be at Spry by 9 a.m.
  • 9:30 a.m.:  Parade moves out from Spry, down South Avenue, turning west on Main Street and proceeding to Webster Rural Cemetery.
  • 9:50 a.m. (approx.): Parade arrives at Webster Rural Cemetery.
  • The Remembrance Ceremony will begin at approximately 10 a.m., or whenever everyone arrives and gets settled.

This is always a very nice parade, and the ceremony that follows it at Webster Rural Cemetery is always moving. I highly recommend bringing your children to see both the parade and the ceremony, so they might begin to understand the huge debt we owe our servicemen and women.

And don’t forget that after the parade, everyone is invited to lunch at the Cottreall-Warner American Legion Post #942, 818 Ridge Rd. There’ll be hot dogs, ice cream and drinks for everyone.

The parade is organized by the Cottreall-Warner American Legion Post. Click here for a gallery of photos from last year’s parade.

Webster History Bit: What’s in a name?

17 May

The names are all very familiar to us: Plank Rd., Salt Rd., Basket Rd., Five Mile Line Rd., Shoecraft Rd., Whiting Rd. But what might not be so familiar is exactly how these well-known roadways got their names. 

Plank Rd. is pretty self-explanatory. It used to be covered in wooden planks. But how about the others? Their stories, recounted in Webster Through the Years by Esther Dunn, offer a glimpse into Webster’s history: 

  • Salt Rd. was named after salt springs located nearby.
  • Basket Rd. was originally known as Basket Street because many of the early settlers in the area made baskets out of branches from the willow trees that grew nearby.    
  • Five Mile Line Rd. referred to the distance from Penfield Village to Ridge Rd. 
  • Shoecraft Rd. bears the name of John Shoecraft, an early settler of Penfield who served in both the Revolutionary War and War of 1812.
  • Whiting Rd. was named for John Whiting, a pioneer who settled on the lakeshore near the junction of Lake and Holt roads. You can still see the grand home he built near that intersection, in Webster Park, which we now know as the White House Lodge.

Webster history is all around us, even hidden in the streets on which we drive. Uncover more historical surprises at the Webster Museum, 18 Lapham Park in the Village of Webster. It’s open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Visit the website at webstermuseum.org to learn more.

One talk down, one to go

16 May

Thank you to everyone who was able to make it to my presentation Tuesday morning at the Webster Recreation Center. We had a good crowd, and a nice mix of people, some who were familiar with my blog, others who weren’t. Regardless, I think everyone learned something about me and my blog that they didn’t know before. I’m hoping that at least I didn’t bore anyone.

If you weren’t able to make it Tuesday, there’s still one more chance to hopefully not be bored by my talk. I’ll be presenting the same talk at the Webster Public Library on Thursday June 8 at 6:30 p.m.

There’s no charge, but it would be helpful if you could register so we kind of know how many people to expect. It’s easy to sign up. You can click here to do that.

I look forward to meeting more of my readers and hearing firsthand what you think about the blog. Bring along your questions, and any blog ideas.

Hope to see you there!

Webster community mailbag

14 May

This first item today is for anyone interested in learning more about the Forest Lawn neighborhood, up there along the lake, which has a surprisingly multi-faceted history.

On Wednesday May 17, the Webster Museum will host the next in their History and a Cup series. Beginning at noon, fourth-generation Forest Lawn resident George Forsyth will tell stories about growing up in Forest Lawn and the home he now lives in, built by his grandfather Walter Forsyth.

George was surrounded by family including his Uncle, Judge C. Benn Forsyth who authored the Forest Lawn book. His stories, will be include his memories as a child. He will bring photos and try to answer all your questions. Bring a sandwich for lunch, and the museum will provide coffee, lemonade and cookies.

Forest Lawn is a lakeside community neighborhood of permanent residents with its own mayor. Samuel Pierce, an early settler, bought and farmed 73 acres along the lake beginning in 1850. His son Horace and an attorney friend, George D. Forsyth, saw potential commercial opportunities in developing the land due to its proximity to the lake and proposed a railway line. In 1888, the Forest Lawn community began with the construction of a hotel. Shortly after, the land was divided into lots which were sold for summer cottages. Wealthy judges and lawyers from Corn Hill soon discovered the area. They would commute to the city by trolley for business, while their families enjoyed summers at the lake.

On Sunday, May 21 beginning at 2 p.m., the museum will hold an Open House to highlight their new Forest Lawn exhibit. Mayor Caley Ferguson will speak at 3 p.m.

If you can’t make it to either of the presentations, plan on stopping by the museum some other time. Their Forest Lawn exhibit will be up all summer. The Webster Museum is located at 18 Lapham Park in the Village of Webster. It’s open Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Check out the website for more information, and “like” the museum on Facebook.

Rosy Glow Maternity supports moms-to-be, and the community

13 May

There are a lot of fine businesses in Webster. But every once in a while one stands out to me, usually because of the strong commitment they’ve made to support our community.

Such is the case for Rosy Glow Maternity, a small, woman-owned shop catering exclusively to expectant and brand-new mothers. Located in Sunrise Plaza across the street from Delta Sonic in Ridge Rd., Rosy Glow is owned by Kari Tetzlaff, a mother of five herself. It’s not a big place, but it’s comfortably stocked with a wide variety of fashionable, reasonably-priced clothing for women in all stages of pregnancy, plus a nice selection of self-care products, like sitz baths, nursing ware, nipple balms and post-partum products all made by women-owned, local small businesses.

Kari opened the shop almost two years ago. She was pregnant with her now three-year old, and was a little stressed out; Motherhood Maternity, her go-to maternity shop, had just closed their retail locations.

“We were moving here to Webster from the city, I was pregnant, and starting a new job. I was, ‘Now where do I go? How do I get myself dressed for this brand new job?'”  

Fortunately, some of her new neighbors were able to help, giving her their unused maternity clothes. So at least she then had enough clothes to get dressed, but started to wonder, how can everyone else get dressed? “I don’t recommend moving when you’re really pregnant, but if you have to, you don’t always luck out having neighbors like that.”

That’s how the idea got started in her head, she said. But it wasn’t until COVID hit and she almost immediately lost her new job, that she decided she needed something to do with her free time. The answer was seemed clear: she’d open a maternity shop where all expectant moms can find the clothing and products they need for reasonable prices.

Starting a brand new business in the middle of the COVID shutdown was a risky proposition, she admitted. But, dealing with pregnancy doesn’t offer a whole lot of options like working via Zoom or ordering out from restaurants.

“You can go nowhere to get anything, but you’re still pregnant,” she said. “You still have to go to some prenatal appointments. You still have to go get blood work done, you still have to make it to the hospital to deliver your baby, go to the pediatrician after. Those are still non-negotiable. And what do you wear if you have nothing to wear?”

With Rosy Glow, Kari is trying to answer that question for all of the expectant and “newly-minted” moms out there who have few places to turn for comfortable clothes. She’s able to keep her prices low by selling only pre-loved items, carefully selected and purchased from women who no longer need them.

That approach presented its own challenges during COVID when new mothers were naturally uncomfortable letting her into their homes to pick up their items. So she invited women to drop them off at the shop or leave them on her doorstep. She also remembers spending many hours bundled up against the winter while sorting through items in cold garages.

But selling maternity clothes and products is just a part of Kari’s mission with Rosy Glow. She spends as much time as necessary with each customer, getting to know her, her situation, and the kind of support she needs. She’ll offer information about their birthing options. She’ll listen as they talk about their aches and pains and difficulties they’ve faced with their pregnancy. She’ll gently warn them about issues that might lie ahead, then offer encouragement that they’ll be able to overcome them. If they need more professional support, they only need to turn around to peruse the business cards tacked to the “resource board” near the checkout desk.

Every aspect of Kari’s business is focused on removing as much stress from a woman’s pregnancy as she can. Her philosophy is, “It should not be a struggle to get dressed.” For women who might have financial concerns, there’s an entire rack of free, take-what-you-need clothes in the front vestibule. She has a browse-and-borrow library stocked with books about pregnancy, birth, how to become a doula, and more. Her “Red Carpet” rental collection of gowns and fancy dresses is very popular.

“I really feel that I’m here to serve moms.”

I met Kari at the Blue Star Mothers Military Baby Shower a few weeks ago, where she was volunteering her time to connect with and support young mothers. She continues to support the Blue Star Mothers, donating the entire proceeds to them from a selection of clothes in her shop.

That’s the kind of commitment to community I’m talking about.

Rosy Glow Maternity is located in Sunrise Plaza, 1778 Empire Blvd., across the street from Delta Sonic. Find out more on her Facebook page and website and on Instagram (@rosyglowmaternity).

Willink students practice important life skills while giving back to the community

12 May

Every school year, hundreds of lost and found items are left behind by students, and despite the schools’ best efforts, most are never claimed. So what can be done with the mounds of abandoned coats, gloves, hats, shirts, water bottles and lunch boxes?

Cori Horn’s 12:1:4 functional life skills class at Willink Middle School has come up with a perfect, win/win solution. Two times a year, Cori and her students launder, sort, fold and pack countless items collected from nine schools, then deliver them all to Webster HOPE on East Ridge Rd.

Cori came up with the project a few years ago, after noticing the large number of lost and found items collecting at her school.

“When we saw how much stuff Willink had,” she said, “I thought, I’m sure all the other schools probably have a lot, too. It would be great for all of it to go back to the Webster community.” She researched clothing closets in Webster, learned about Webster HOPE, and then proposed her idea to every other school in the district. Eight other buildings responded and offered their lost and found items to the cause.

The project is a perfect way for the students to practice the basic life skills they need as they work towards independent living, while also teaching them patience and perseverance.

As the items are collected, the students first sort them based on clothing type and whether they’re for boys or girls. Then they wash and fold the items, pair up the gloves, zip up the jackets and match the tops to the water bottles. Finally, they place the items in the correct boxes. Even prepping a new box required life skills, like looking closely at the picture on the label, peeling the tape and attaching it to the box. The repetitive nature of all the tasks is especially beneficial.

Each student works on every aspect of the project, giving them a great sense of accomplishment for contributing to something important.

This is the second time this school year that the students have completed the ambitious lost and found project. Last December they packed and delivered 38 boxes to Webster HOPE. This spring they almost doubled that haul, collecting 64 boxes filled with hats, gloves, snow pants, sweatshirts, jackets, water bottles, lunch boxes, and even Halloween costumes. Earlier this week, they packed them all into two SUVs and then Cori delivered them all to Webster HOPE. There, a small army of very grateful volunteers helped unload them to be stored until they can be distributed to the agency’s clients.

Webster HOPE director Margery Morgan couldn’t say enough good things about the students’ work.

“It’s wonderful,” she said. “They wash it, they label it, it’s packed up unbelievably well, already presorted. Sixty-four boxes of name-brand, top-of-the-line clothing. We’re delighted.”

Margery was especially grateful for the snow pants, which she called “a huge item for us.”

“A lot of kids in Webster can’t go outside at playtime if they don’t have snow pants, so they have to stay in the library. A lot of our families can’t afford snow pants, so those are gold to us.” She felt the same way about the lunch boxes. Most of the children they serve get free lunch at school, so they don’t have lunch boxes for summer camp. The dozens of clean, colorful lunch boxes will be greatly appreciated by the families HOPE serves.

A project like this benefits every person and every place it touches, from the students who are learning valuable skills, to our Webster neighbors who benefit from the donations, to the organizer herself.

“I’m so happy that I’m allowed to do this,” Cori said. “It’s a refresh at the end of the school year, a project that’s giving back to the community. … I love doing volunteer work. When we can volunteer and get life skills and curriculum work out if it, it makes me so happy.”

She added that the best part, however, “is when the parents say they notice that the kids are improving, doing the stuff at home.”

On the lookout for fairies at State Rd. Elementary

10 May

Dozens of fairies took over the State Rd. Elementary School library on Monday, in celebration of the school’s annual Fairy Day, organized by kindergarten teacher Jacqueline Smith.

More accurately, I should say that it appeared that dozens of fairies had taken over the library, because no one actually saw any of the secretive sprites. But their fairy homes and twinkling fairy jars were much in evidence, lining a pathway that wove among the library’s bookshelves.

This is actually the ninth year that State Rd. kindergarten teacher Jacqueline Smith has created a fairy garden, but the first one that has taken place in the library, and the first time the whole school has been involved.

Smith has been holding “Fairy Day” for her kindergarten classes every year since 2015. It’s part of an entire fairy tale unit, into which she also incorporates lessons in science, literacy, mathematics, art, even music. On one special day, she’d transform her kindergarten classroom into a magical wonderland, complete with twinkly lights, fairy jars, fairy dust, fairy music, fairy wands and fairy stories.

This year, Smith invited the entire school to take part in the magical festivities. The response was heartwarming. Individual grade levels embraced the challenge to make different parts of the fairy trail; fourth graders made flowers to hang from the ceiling. First graders made stepping stones, UPK students made ladybugs and butterflies, OT students made beaded raindrops and umbrellas, and the kindergartners made fairy gardens and fairy jars.

But Smith was particularly touched by the support she received from State Rd. staff members, who showed up in force to help decorate the library on Friday afternoon. They helped drape green tablecloths over the bookshelves, hang backdrops, spread twinkling green lights along the pathway, hang butterflies and flowers, set up all the houses and fairy jars, and so much more.

“How magical it was to see the team effort,” Smith said. “It was pretty spectacular. Everyone was so excited to see the fairy magic come alive.”

Staff enthusiasm didn’t end there, either. Teachers and support staff alike took Fairy Day to heart, coming to school on Monday with their fairy wands, fairy wings, butterfly wings, sparkly masks and tutus.

Every class took their turn strolling through the fairy lane, which twinkled brightly with the library lights turned low. The youngest students in particular delighted in trying to catch a glimpse of even one fairy peeking out of a fairy house window or sleeping in one of the twinkling fairy jars.

The magical fairy garden was dismantled immediately after school on Monday, but the school’s fascination with fairies did not end there. There’s actually a permanent fairy trail behind the school, which directs walkers past 26 uniquely decorated and lovingly built fairy houses, one for each letter of the alphabet.

The path was created in 2019, thanks to the efforts of then-State Rd. parent Brian Roode. Several of the houses have become damaged and weathered in the years since they were installed, so this year, Roode replaced 12 of them. Since the weather is supposed to be so beautiful this week, I imagine there will be a lot of students out there on the path, wondering if all of the fairies recently uprooted from the library had found new homes.

Click here to read the blog I wrote last year about Jacqueline Smith’s Fairy Day and the fairy trail. You can also click here to see some more photos from Fairy Day and some of the new fairy houses installed behind the school. Thank you to Jacquie Smith for most of these photos!

Webster Thomas NHS students help preserve Webster’s history

9 May

Gravestones belonging to many of Webster’s earliest settlers got a little TLC last weekend, thanks to several Webster Thomas High School National Honor Society (NHS) students.

Thomas seniors Ella Esders, Adam Zlotkus and Mya Cacciotti, assisted by their friends Gary Weiss and Allison Peterson, spent a few hours last Saturday morning at Webster Union Cemetery getting down and dirty — and wet — removing years of moss, lichen and built-up dirt from 17 headstones.

The effort was part of a project required of all second-year NHS students. The project must be something that benefits the local community, and students are encouraged to design it around something they’re passionate about. They have to develop a plan, get it approved with the group’s faculty advisor, and once it’s been completed, create a video slideshow to be presented at an NHS meeting.

Last year, Ella, Adam and Mya helped with a friend’s second-year project, repairing headstones at Webster Rural Cemetery. That experience inspired them to head back into a cemetery for their own project.

The students were guided by Cherie Wood, Webster Union Cemetery Historian, who demonstrated and explained the many-step process involved in carefully removing moss, lichen and dirt from the delicate headstones. As they scrubbed and sprayed, Wood also gave them a bonus history lesson, telling them stories about Webster’s early history and its founding families, and introduced them to some of our former town leaders and two Revolutionary War Patriots.

The students were especially intrigued to learn more about the many headstone symbols they saw. Wood explained that in the 1700s and 1800s, symbols placed on the stones were a kind of code about that person. One child’s headstone, for example, was decorated with a plant with four leaves, a drooping rose in full bloom, and a rosebud cut off. The rose represented the grieving mother. Each leaf was a child, and the missing rosebud was a child under 10 who had died. The circle surrounding them all represented eternity.  

The students worked nonstop for two and a half hours. Despite the hard, messy work required under a pretty warm sun, every single one of them characterized the job as “fun.” And the importance of what they were doing wasn’t lost on them.

“It’s a nice day in the sun with our friends,” Ella said, “learning about the historical value of this and also preserving the memory of these people.”

Revelle’s Home Decor opens in the village this weekend

8 May

Just in time for Mother’s Day, a charming new business is coming to the Village of Webster.

Revelle’s Home Decor will be opening on Saturday May 13, the day before Mother’s Day. It’s located at 5 East Main St., in the east half of the former Savage Chef location. It’s kind of a small space, but it’s going to be packed with a wonderful variety of handcrafted items and new and refinished furniture.

Revelle’s is new to Webster, but not new to the new and beautifully refinished furniture business. Former customers will remember Revelle’s when they had a storefront in Hilton. Unfortunately, a house fire led to their having to close that business. Fortunately for Webster, however, the Revelles eventually found a new house in Wayne County and chose the Village of Webster as the perfect place to establish their new shop.

This new Revelle’s is going to be so much more than just furniture, though. When owner Peggy Revelle knew she was going to open a new shop, she sent out a call to local crafters who would be interested in displaying and selling their products in the store as well. She received more than 100 responses. From them, she carefully chose from among them eight of the most creative, unique, high-quality artisans to fill her walls and shelves.

So in addition to some incredibly beautiful refurbished and new handcrafted furniture pieces, customers will find a wide variety of wonderfully creative handcrafted home decor items, including candles, soaps and body butters, jewelry, pine-cone art, wood flower arrangements, decorative tumblers, paper craft wall art, decoupage and fabric-covered pots and more.

Basically, they’re the kind of gifts that might just make Mom finally admit that you’re her favorite.

Revelle’s Home Decor will open Saturday May 13 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It’s located at 5 East Main Street, right next to the also brand-new M.O. Pasta. Stop in and welcome both new businesses to the Village of Webster!

To find out more about Revelle’s, check out the Facebook page here or the website here.
