Supervisor’s Message - Tony LaFountain, Penfield Town Supervisor As I near the end of my fourth year in office as supervisor, I wish to thank all of our residents for their ongoing support, feedback, and thoughts as to how we continue to make Penfield one of the best communities in Monroe County. Truly great communities have strong communications and relationships with residents, businesses, school districts, the faith community, and surrounding municipalities to discuss new and innovative ways to improve the community and support residents. I believe Penfield gets it more right than wrong on a consistent basis; however, there is always room for improvement and my commitment to all our residents is to look for ways to improve on everything we do at all levels, and I am honored to serve you over the next two years. Allow me a moment to re-cap 2013 and discuss 2014. The town board’s focus has been, and continues to be, keeping Penfield a fiscally sound community by managing healthcare costs, expanded use of technology, implementing several mixed use districts to help expand the tax base in a well planned manner, and to expand cost-saving partnerships with school districts, surrounding municipalities, and other business entities. Throughout 2013 we accomplished most of our aggressive DPW project goals, implemented a new town-wide accounting program; added turn arrows in the Four Corners, and expanded open space. We also added a new kayak/canoe launch and picnic area behind Tops in Panorama Plaza and expanded wellness programs offered by the Recreation Department.

the Motts Lane extension in the Four Corners. We will see the adoption of the Mixed Use Plan and ongoing town-school district programs and projects. We will also continue to balance our workforce across the town with regular full-time and part-time employees, seasonal labor, and some added contractors to help manage the increasing costs of medical (“affordable health care”), pensions, and insurances. The next phase will be a pilot program this winter in DPW to contract one of our 17 plow routes and municipal parking lots. As costs continue to rise, and with the majority of our residents not wanting to see taxes increase, we will continue to explore ways to manage and control costs and spending. Cost savings come in many forms. Wo r k i n g w i t h t h e E n e r g y & Environmental Advisory Committee (EEAC) we are ready to begin our next solar energy project which will be located on the roof of Harris Whalen Lodge and designed to cover approximately 60 percent of the facility’s total electric costs annually. Our investment will be in-house labor and preparation time of the necessary NYSERDA paperwork by a member of the EEAC. The grant we will be receiving from NYSERDA is funded by the monthly fees that are charged on all RG&E bills. While the savings may only add up to a few thousand dollars, every dollar counts when attempting to manage the increased spending being pushed down to local communities by the state and federal government.

enjoy the outdoors during the spring, summer and fall seasons. As we head in to the holiday season, I would like to encourage all Penfield residents to consider shopping locally in one of our six business districts: Lloyd’s Corners (Routes 250/441); Panorama Valley; Browncroft Corners, the Four Corners; LaSalle’s Landing and North Penfield Crossroads (yes the Empire Blvd. area is in Penfield!). Also, let’s not forget our many farmers markets which may stay open until Christmas Eve. Please remember that “healthy businesses make a healthy community…shop locally.” I want to close by recognizing several groups. First, the staff of the Recreation Department, lead by Director Chris Bilow, and the rest of the team: Steve, Linanne, Pam, Sabrina, Carol, Paula, and Chris for putting together this brochure and coordinating the many hundreds of wellness programs for our residents. Next, I would like to recognize all of the rest of the town staff, appointed boards, and all the volunteer board and committee members for their ongoing dedication to the Penfield community. Lastly, I would like to recognize and thank our town board, town clerk, and town attorney for their support and guidance throughout the past year. Successful government is not about one person or group; it is about the broader team. In Penfield you have one of the best teams in local government, all of the men and women who work so hard to support all our residents. I thank them for their service! Finally, on behalf of town staff and their families, we want to wish all of you a wonderful, healthy and safe holiday season. It has been our pleasure serving you in 2013 and we look forward to an exciting and dynamic 2014.

Watch for changes to the landscaping at the Penfield Community Center. The last four overgrown and diseased Austrian pines on the south side of the building will be removed to make way for new trees, plantings, and enhanced walkways and seating areas for those visiting the facility, especially the library. The As we head into 2014 we are looking plan will enhance the aesthetics of our to complete the last phase of the Baird community center and make it more Road construction, and finally complete inviting for residents and patrons to 340-8631 Penfield Recreation

The Young, Open & Honest Players


~ 29 Years Young! ~

by William Inge

Wednesday, April 2 4:00 PM, Penfield Community Center


The play takes place on Labor Day weekend in the joint back yards of two middle-aged widows. The one house belongs to Flo Owens who lives there with her two maturing daughters, Madge and Millie, and a boarder who is a spinster school teacher. The other house belongs to Helen Potts, who lives with her elderly and invalid mother. Into this female atmosphere comes a young man named Hal Carter, whose animal vitality seriously upsets the entire group. Hal is a most interesting character, a child of parents who ignored him, self-conscious of his failings and his position behind the eight ball. Flo is sensitively wary of temptations for her daughters. Madge, bored with being only a beauty, sacrifices her chances for a wealthy marriage for the excitement Hal promises. Her sister Millie finds her balance for the first time through the stranger’s brief attention. And the spinster is stirred to make an issue out of the dangling courtship that has brightened her life in a dreary, minor way. Winner of a 1953 Pulitzer, Picnic is noted to be an American classic for every generation. Penfield Recreation

The Odd Couple

A wickedly funny and fiercely provocative play about the volatile combination of race and real estate. In Act One it’s 1959, and a white couple sells their home to the Younger family of A Raisin in the Sun, causing an uproar in their all-white neighborhood. Fast forward 50 years in Act Two and the same house is bought by a white couple with plans for gentrification - and a knack for saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. While the stakes have changed, the debate remains as neighbors reveal just how far ideas about race have evolved…or have they?

Ripped from today’s headlines and based on a true story, an ambitious geneticist, Gillian, is hired to help solve why a Native American tribe is being devastated by diabetes, but her research threatens to destroy their most sacred traditions. Meanwhile at home, she and her husband are confronted with the choice of using modern science to determine whether their four year-old daughter will be haunted by the family’s medical history. With genomic breakthroughs happening at breakneck speed, this heartwarming and honest tale explores the question of just how much knowledge is too much.

One of Neil Simon’s most recognizable and timeless comedies. Fastidious Felix Unger is thrown out by his wife. His only refuge is with his best friend, Oscar Madison, a recently divorced sportswriter whose apartment is a study in slovenly chaos. Friends, yes, but will they drive each other crazy?! This peculiar pair, with decidedly different approaches to life, to love – and yes, to housework, has been entertaining audiences with side-splitting laughter and classic comedy for nearly 50 years.

Two men in love, two parents in denial, two friends on speed dial. When Luke is injured in a car accident, his partner Adam must negotiate Luke’s family and reconcile the differences in their faiths.

Add a government inspector, guns, strait jackets, men dressed as women, women dressed as men, and a policeman searching for the stolen private parts of Winston Churchill, and the situation spirals into the absurd, and the hilarious!

Free Thursday Lecture Series at Penfield Community Center 12:30 PM From Oz to St. Louis: The Life of Thomas Jefferson An Introduction to We hold these truths to be self-evident: Judy’s Journey to Glamour Computer Technology that all men are created equal; that they This talk will include everything from classic “computers” like the PC to modern devices like the tablet PC and the smart phone and what their role in the modern world has come to be as well as which might be right for you. We’ll also cover a number of Internet related topics from the different types of Internet browsers to free e-mail accounts and free online storage/ sharing space you can take advantage of.

The Life and Times of Benjamin Franklin One of the leading figures of early American history, Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) was a statesman, author, publisher, scientist, inventor and diplomat. This talk will take the audience from his modest beginnings to his illustrious career as a printer, publisher, inventor, diplomat, politician, entrepreneur and one of the most revered men of his time. Franklin created a list of 13 virtues which he believed were good rules to live by, although he often went astray. A character full of tremendous passion, energy and zest for life, he is by far one of the most important people of early America.

When Louis B. Mayer brought Judy Garland to MGM she was a shy insecure young actress who didn’t fit in to the smooth sharp Hollywood image. Just as Dorothy was sent to the Elizabeth Arden salon in the Emerald City for a sprucing up, the newly christened Judy Garland was sent to the studio’s makeup and hair wizards for a makeover. The initial result was a more polished, pretty looking little girl. With a few tweaks Judy was molded into the ideal all-American Girl Next Door. Follow Judy’s transformation from Francis Ethel Gumm to Judy Garland and her ongoing struggle to compete with the Hollywood image she so desperately wanted to achieve. Karen Noske from Movie Star Makeover® will share one of her more popular blogs on her site as we take a look at the career of Judy Garland.

are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And so writes Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence. His personal, political and professional life all tell the story of a brilliant writer, inventor, architect, statesman, gardener and much to his own chagrin, slave owner. His own struggle to come to terms with the beliefs he fought so valiantly to achieve, equality for all, escaped his personal choice to own slaves. This lecture will take a look at his early and later political life. We will get into his personal and business life at a future lecture.

All humans, alive or dead, constantly emit microscopic particles bearing human scent. Millions of these are airborne and are carried by the wind for considerable distances. Trained search and rescue canines can locate the scent of any human in a specific search area. The dog is not restricted to the missing person’s track and can search long after the track is obliterated. Kathy Boone trained as a medical firstresponder, has worked with dogs and horses all her life so when she discovered canine search-and-rescue by reading a magazine article, she knew she was destined to pursue a new passion. Founder of the Eastern Region Unit of the Central Montana Search Dogs, she has worked with area police enforcement units along with her two trained dogs Devin and Blair for eight years and seven years prior to that in Montana. Come hear about her incredible experiences with her amazing dogs. 3/20 Kathy Boone

The Civilian Conservation Corps in Letchworth State Park This presentation will discuss the impact that men enrolled in the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) had on Letchworth Park during the Depression of the 1930s. It includes interviews with four local men who volunteered for six month stints in the CCC to get an idea of what led them to enlist, what the actual dayto-day experience was like, and what impact it had on their lives. To properly understand the importance of this program, we will discuss the enormous dislocations created by “The Great Depression” and the tremendous benefits the CCC brought to program participants, their families and the millions that visit and make use of our beautiful parks.The presentation will utilize slides and videos to depict the historical environment which resulted in the adoption of the CCC and the creation and building of much of the infrastructure which still enhances Letchworth State Park.

The Belfast Titanic Museum Dave Kuchman is an avid collector of all things Titanic. Collecting since childhood, Dave could well be one of the most serious Titanic historians in the Rochester area. He has talked with twelve of the actual survivors, has read most, if not all, of the books, articles and web site information out there, and visited the memorials and museums. Needless to say, when the new Titanic Museum in Belfast opened its doors in March of 2012, Dave and his wife made plans to grace its decks. They visited last spring. We are so excited to have him share his experience with us, as well as his extensive knowledge about the beautiful ship and its fateful voyage.

Sweater Quest

#142030-B 3/5 W - 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM Fee: $5.00

For Adrienne Martini, author of Sweater Quest and countless others, knitting is the linchpin of sanity. As a working mother of two, Martini wanted a challenge that would make her feel in charge. So she decided to make the Holy Grail of sweaters - her own Mary Tudor, whose mind-numbingly gorgeous pattern is so complicated to knit that its mere mention can hush a roomful of experienced knitters. The sweater, Martini explains, “is a knitter’s Mount Everest, our curse, and our compulsion. So she took on the challenge to conquer Mary Tudor while also taking care of her two kids, two cats, two jobs, and (thankfully) one husband - without unraveling in the process. She also wrote about her experience and she will be here to talk about the book and the gruelling but euphoric process of creating the ultimate sweater. 4/3 Adrienne Martini

The Most Human Human In 1637, Rene Descartes proclaimed “I think, therefore I am” creating a still famous catch phrase to define what makes us human. In 1950, Alan Turing famously asked: “Can machines think?” and proposed the Turing Test to scientifically answer this question. In 1997, IBM’s Deep Blue machine triumphed over chess master Garry Kasparov and in 2011 IBM’s Watson computer won the TV game show Jeopardy, but artificial intelligence experts have not yet been able to win the Turing Test. In his book The Most Human Human Brian Christian, the 2009 human winner in the Loebner prize Turing Test, explains “what it is like to be the human half of this competition.” Humans and their machines are irreversibly connected now. This lecture will look in depth at Christian’s thoughts on “what computers teach us about what it means to be alive.”

The Great Course Club Classics in American Literature

History Sleuths Wanted

Mark Twain’s definition of a classic book is “A book which people praise and don’t read.” Classics in American Literature is an opportunity to read or re-read those very important texts and discuss their relevancy to the American experience. They are authors and titles that have somehow shocked, The First Ladies of the Civil War destabilized, or changed the scope of American society. We continue with this epic series (84 lectures) here at Penfield Recreation and invite you to explore and review the great works of American authors We are gathering our next team of history as well as the lives and details of the authors themselves. Literary resources for each lecture appear sleuths as we begin to research the lives of below the course description. See the following authors for this sessions reading assignments. “The First Ladies of the Civil War.” Our

Herman Melville

and the Fish Story to End All Fish Stories

Walt Whitman

Moby Dick is that quintessential 19th century novel. It’s not for the faint of heart with 135 chapters and an epilogue to boot. But it is an important selection when we are studying the classics in American Literature. In this text the reader finds conjurings of an adventure yarn of the whale ship Pequod, commanded by Captain Ahab. Ishmael soon learns that Ahab has one purpose on this voyage: to seek out Moby Dick, a ferocious, enigmatic white sperm whale. In a previous encounter, the whale destroyed Ahab’s boat and bit off his leg, which now drives Ahab to take revenge. In Moby Dick, Melville uses stylized language, symbolism, and metaphor to explore numerous complex themes. Join us for these lectures as we transcend the pages of Melville’s work to understand the spiritual, metaphysical and ideological metaphors he has crafted for the reader. Hopefully we will gain an appreciation and an understanding of the epic tale.

Walt Whitman introduced 19th century America with an unprecedented poetic account of the common man and woman. His themes of democracy, nature, humanity reflect the vision and vulnerability of the relatively new nation. Like Emerson and Thoreau, Whitman is inspired to break away from the European trends and find a voice in the territory of the new world.

Harriet Beacher Stowe

Global Warming: Yes? Maybe? No?

An important representation of slavery during an era that needed to lay witness to an atrocious institution that threatened the very values that the new nation fought so desperately to achieve. Her novel sold over 300,000 copies its first year and is a striking example of how literature can change the course of human history.

Let’s examine—in a cold sober round table—all chosen sides and agendas to today’s raging controversy on the subject. Science based and politically driven arguments get in the way of our planet’s future climate trends. Retired science teacher and Penfield resident Nels Carman will lead us on a thought provoking rational conversation about this misunderstood topic.

The Fox on the Fairway by Ken Ludwig

“The Fox on the Fairway” takes audiences on a hilarious romp which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, it’s a furiously paced comedy that recalls the Marx Brothers’ classics.

AUDITIONS for “The Fox on the Fairway” will be late

February. We’re looking for three men and three women (ages 20-60) to be a part of this great comedy! For more information, please go to 44
