Director’s Message The winter season will be fully upon us very soon and people will begin to look for ways to get away from the cold winter days we will be facing. The staff in the Recreation Department has done a fantastic job of preparing programs that will give you an opportunity to spend time with friends in a wide range of recreation opportunities. I encourage each of our residents to participate in as many of the programs as we have offered this winter and spring! With the many opportunities the snow brings I also encourage residents to get out and enjoy all that the Penfield parks offer in the winter. The various parks are a fantastic place to cross country ski as well as snowshoe or even just walk the trails. Harris Whalen is one of the best places for sledding and spending an afternoon playing in the snow. Before you know it, the summer will be knocking on the door and another winter will be behind us. As we prepare for the upcoming summer I am once again asking for your input on program offerings. If there is a special program you would like to see offered through Penfield Recreation I encourage you to contact me and share your ideas. We have developed a number of our existing programs based on resident input. Your feedback and input is important to our success. I would like to thank the individuals who have been working on the Brighton/Penfield Senior Transportation committee. These individuals, with assistance from Lifespan, have been working to develop a program that will meet the transportation needs of seniors in the Brighton/Penfield community. If you have interest in volunteering as a driver or in other roles, I encourage you to contact us.

Supervisor’s Message - Tony LaFountain, Penfield Town Supervisor Weather-wise, it feels as though I should be writing this message for the fall edition of the Pen-Rec brochure. We have been blessed with some wonderful mild weather that has given us an extended autumn season to enjoy our many parks and trails systems. The theme of wellness is the foundation of all aspects of Penfield Recreation programming. Our recreation team works hard each and every day to provide a variety of events, classes, sports activities, and trips for all ages. I would like to recognize and thank Director Chris Bilow and his team of Steve, Linanne, Pam, Sabrina, Anne, Christine, and Paula for their energy and creativity in the preparation of yet another wonderful lineup of programs you will discover in this season’s brochure.

the plaza is undergoing a complete facelift with many new stores moving in. Stoneyard Brewing took over a closed restaurant and converted it to a brewery and beer garden, and South Point (now Waters Edge) has completed a majority of the apartments along Irondequoit Bay. The Four Corners has also seen its share of redevelopment. Aspenleiter Vacuum purchased the church across from Mark’s Pizzeria on Five Mile Line, The Art Stop opened in the former Mason’s Building, Nothnagle Realtors built an addition, and there was a complete facelift of TBones, now known as Bistro 1778. Lastly, the new Hampton Inn on Panorama Trail South is expected to be completed by early 2017. Looking ahead, 2017 is shaping up to be another busy year. The budget has been adopted; all services will remain the same, we were under the tax cap mandated by the Governor’s Office, and the tax rate will remain the same as 2016. The Penfield Town Board looks to complete its work on the mixed use district along Route 250, install a solar array at the DPW on Jackson Road, and finalize the Shadow Pines recommendations.

There was a lot of excitement around the town in 2016. I will touch on some highlights. The most frequent question I hear is, “When will Route 441 finally be completed?” The NYSDOT plans to have everything wrapped up by December 1. It has been a long process indeed, and the As always, if you would like an final diamond grinding is making the update on any matter in the town, ride on Route 441 much smoother. please feel free to drop me an email The intersection of Routes 250/441 at supervisor@penfield.org or stop have seen a lot of new builds with me out in the community to say hello Moe’s, AT&T and the Hair Zoo and chat about any item you have on recently opening their doors.

the holidays and begin the search for that “perfect” Christmas tree for your holidays, please remember to shop locally—right here in Penfield—for that special tree. Several farms in east and north Penfield offer “cut your own tree” and a selection of pre-cut trees for your convenience. Local scout troops also offer trees for sale. Supporting local farms and scouts makes a difference. When you support them, they help support our community. Whenever you can, please make a point to shop locally this holiday season! I would like to recognize and thank all of our town employees for their dedicated service to the Penfield community and residents. Each and every day they make a difference in providing information and services to this great town. I would also like to recognize my partners in local government, town board members Linda Kohl, Paula Metzler, Andy Moore, and Rob Quinn, who provide me support and guidance to best serve you. To all residents of Penfield—our customers—we wish for you this holiday season the gift of peace, the gift of happiness, and the gift of health. During this time enjoy your family and friends and consider performing an act of random kindness to someone…it will make a difference for both of you!

The AARP Foundation Tax Aide Program will be offering free income tax preparation on Wednesday and Friday mornings at the Penfield Community Center, 1985 Baird Road, by appointment only, beginning February 2017.

One important thing to note is that we will NOT have access to any prior year carryover information. It is important that you bring last year’s tax return and supporting documents with you to your appointment (even if prepared by the Tax Aide program), and especially if prepared elsewhere.

Healing Power of Meditation Meditation is not just about being quiet nor is it about the absence of challenges. It is about being the witness or observer of one’s life experiences. Through increasing awareness, we learn to transcend the ego that thrives on drama, pain and suffering. Meditation develops concentration and promotes deep relaxation, with the brain emitting alpha and theta waves. These waves have the power to calm the mind, relax the body and balance and harmonize the discordant energies within us. When we allow meditation to become a part of our lives, we are in reality reconnecting to the sacred silence that resides in us and allows the inner peace to permeate in our outer life. The sessions will include the use of the crystal singing bowls and how these sounds can expedite one’s healing and transformation. #163826-A

Private Lives

Other Than Honorable

Million Dollar Quartet

Elyot and Amanda have been divorced from each other for five years, so imagine their surprise when, whilst honeymooning on the French Riviera with their new spouses, they find themselves in adjacent suites. Sparks fly, reigniting a passion between them too powerful to fight (although fighting is the thing that they do best) in Noël Coward’s 1930 champagne cocktail of a comedy about the fine line between love and loathing.

With her husband deployed to an unknown location, lawyer Grace Rattigan, a former Army officer who resigned her commission under sealed terms, must make life-altering decisions on her own. When she reluctantly takes on a military sexual assault case, it reopens old wounds and forces her to confront her past, along with the real meaning of the military’s codes of honor, courage and loyalty. A hot new drama by award-winning playwright and screenwriter Jamie Pachino, writer of NBC’s “Chicago PD.”

On December 4, 1956, four young musicians got together at Sun Records in Memphis for what would become one of the greatest ever jam sessions. Put on your blue suede shoes and join Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, and Carl Perkins for the recording session of a lifetime. Loaded with classic rock ‘n roll hits such as “Great Balls of Fire,” “Sixteen Tons,” “I Walk the Line,” “Hound Dog,” and many more.

Bristol Valley Theater Murder Ballad

Art

Crimes of the Heart

Conceived by and with Book by Julia Jordan Music and Lyrics by Juliana Nash

by Yasmina Reza Translated by Christopher Hampton

by Beth Henley

A steamy new rock musical of a love triangle gone wrong. Sara loves her husband Michael, but can’t get her old flame, Tom, out of her mind. When circumstances throw them together again, the smoldering temptation ignites and the situation boils over, and someone’s gonna die. The question is who? And of course, who dunnit?

Serge has just spent a small fortune on a painting, a white background patterned with white lines. His longtime friends think he’s lost his mind. What begins as a friendly discussion of personal taste rapidly devolves into a scathingly funny all-out war as the guys take off the gloves and share their opinions of art -- and each other.

In this warm-hearted and somewhat zany comedy, three southern sisters reunite under shaky circumstances: Babe, the youngest, has shot her hotshot politico husband because “she didn’t like his looks.” The sisters navigate their very different personalities, dark family secrets and their current troubles, which are grave and yet, somehow, hilarious.

Some adult situations and language.

“A Matter of Memory” and the Digital Age Have you ever wondered what will become of our personal memories now that most of what we photograph is taken with our cell phones and shared on Facebook, Instagram and stored in cyber space? What effect will the digital age have on our collective memories now that news photos have been reduced to small digital images for viewing on E-readers and laptops instead of “above the fold”? Come and join the discussion while we take an in depth look at the George Eastman Museum’s current exhibition “A Matter of Memory” with GEM Gallery Docent Pam O’Brien. “Memory” features 35 Fine Art Photographers who explore the shift from analog to digital photography. We will explore and discuss many of the photographs featured in “Memory” in two class sessions plus a visit to GEM to tour the exhibit.

The Simulation Hypothesis We always love the avant garde topics Kit Nelson prepares for us and this year is no exception. The mind blowing topic: as computing power proliferates, computer simulations will soon become so detailed as to be indistinguishable from reality. Has this already happened? Could we be simulated beings in some alien’s ultra real computer simulation? Serious researchers and philosophers think its not only possible, but likely. We’ll investigate. #166410 - D 1/23 M - 11:00 AM - 2:30 PM Penfield Community Center Free (Registration required) Kit Nelson

Hidden Life of Trees

Trees have a sense of time, have memories, taste, smell, feel, explore, see, and hear, but because trees live on a much slower time platform than we do, we consistently underestimate and misunderstand them. Scientists study this, know this, and can prove this but German Forester Peter Wohlleben created a groundbreaking worldwide best seller which puts scientific facts into a language that makes what he dubs “the Wood Wide Web” seem almost human. Not since Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree has a book so effectively argued for the beautiful symbiosis we share with the trees of this earth. Come hear the science and wonder of The Hidden Life of Trees. 1/26 #164010-A Lunch $6.00 #164010-B Lecture only - free Rosemary Irwin

More Nuts and Bolts of Elections

The Hudson River School was a mid19th century American art movement embodied by a group of landscape painters whose aesthetic vision was influenced by romanticism. The paintings for which the movement is named depict the Hudson River Valley and the surrounding area, including the Catskill, Adirondack, and the White Mountains; eventually works by the second generation of artists associated with the school expanded to include other locales in New England, the Maritimes, the American West, and South America.

Theatre!

Our Winter Readers’ Theatre – FREE to the public! Saturday, February 25, 2017 2:00 pm Penfield Community Center Playwright: Nell Benjamin

London, 1879. The prestigious Explorers Club is in crisis: their acting president wants to admit a woman, and their bartender is terrible. True, this female candidate is brilliant, beautiful, and has discovered a legendary Lost City, but the decision to let in a woman could shake the very foundation of the British Empire, and how do you make such a decision without a decent drink? Grab your safety goggles for some very mad science involving deadly cobras, irate Irishmen, and the occasional airship.

2017 spring melodra ma

Red Velvet Cake War Playwright: Jones/Hope/Wooten

Opens April 28, 2017 Brief synopsis: A family reunion in Sweetgum, Texas goes horribly awry. Hilarity ensues! Things spin hilariously out of control when a neighbor’s pet devours everything edible, a oneeyed suitor shows up to declare his love, and a jaw-dropping high-stakes wager is made on who bakes the best red velvet cake. As this fast-paced romp barrels toward its uproarious climax, you’ll wish your own family reunions were this much fun!
