Message From The Director & Supervisor

Director’s Message It’s summertime again in Penfield and that means events, activities and summer programs! We have a full slate of programs listed in this brochure, including several new programs for you to consider. I hope that I get a chance to see you and say hello at a number of programs this season. As the weather permits, programs will go as planned, however, should changing weather necessitate cancelations please keep tuned into the department’s web site ( and Facebook page. Back this summer is the popular Passport to Play program that highlights all of the Town-owned playgrounds in the community (including JACK’s Place at Rothfuss Park, and our newest playground at Greenwood Park). The passport can be picked up at the Recreation Department, and as a family you can visit and play at each site. Once you have visited all ten playgrounds, bring the passport in to receive a special token prize. For those who are looking for a bit more adventure there is the ever-popular Hit the Trails Passport program that is available at the recreation office as well as Wegmans. Both of these great family programs are sponsored by Wegmans, our community Wellness Partner!

This year the department will be going through the process of updating the Recreation Department’s Masterplan. This process is done every five years and it is our goal to have the update completed and approved by the Town board in the fall. We will be requesting input from the community on a number of recreation topics, including program wishes, facility needs, and park improvements. It’s my feeling that programs, facilities, and parks are what we must focus on moving forward as a department. These three features are the basis to the type of programs we are able to provide our residents. Penfield Recreation should be the community’s recreation destination. Please be active and participate in this update; the update needs community input to be most accurate for the next five years. As I have always shared, feel free to send me—or stop in and share with me—any questions comments or concerns you have. Finally, I would like to share a special recognition to a Recreation staff member who is retiring from the Town later this summer. Steve Orsini has been providing programs and events for the community for over 29 years. Steve has always been the person “behind the curtain” at so many events over the years, but I wanted to thank him for his years of service in front of the curtain before he retires! Please join me in congratulating and wishing Steve all the best! Have a great summer,

Christopher K. Bilow, Recreation Director

Supervisor’s Message

The worst of winter is finally behind us for another year and everyone is longing for the familiar summer thoughts of “Play ball!” or “What group is playing at the amphitheater?” or “I am looking forward to the Independence Day fireworks!” The details on these popular programs and much more are contained in this summer edition of the PenRec program. I would like to recognize and thank all of our DPW employees (Highway, Parks, Facilities, and Sewer) for their efforts this past winter to manage snow and ice for our residents. When many of us are inside watching the worst of the weather, they are out keeping roadways, sidewalks, and parking lots safe for our use getting to work, school, and other important places. Participation numbers in our recreation programs are at an all-time high with more than 10,770 participants enjoying more than 1,010 programs throughout 2017. Our team continues to explore new opportunities to serve you and your families. I would like to recognize and thank Director Chris and staff members Steve, Linanne, Pam, Sabrina, Paula, Anne, Nels, and Sarah for all of their hard work and the support they provide each and every season. Our annual Spring Drop-off for Penfield residents is scheduled for Friday, May 18 from 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM and Saturday, May 19 from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM at the DPW facility, 1607 Jackson Road. More details will be available on the website, including what items will and will not be accepted, as we get closer to the event. The Memorial Day “Ceremony of Remembrance” will be held on May 28 at 10:30 AM at the Penfield Amphitheater and Kiwanis Stage behind the town hall. This event has grown each year and features the parade of roses as a touching tribute to all those who served our country and gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom—their lives. This year’s guest speaker will be the Honorable Thomas Van Strydonck, Deputy County Executive, former Chief Administrative Judge for the 7th Judicial District, and Retired Naval Commander. I look forward to seeing you there for this wonderful and very moving event. The 2020 Comprehensive Plan will be getting back on track this spring. 4

Summer 2018

The Town Board will look to appoint a committee to work with staff and outside consultants on data collection, preparation of a draft plan to review with the public as an information meeting, and ultimately a recommendation to the Town Board for adoption. This document will address residential, commercial, and recreational properties; status/ progress of the new Mixed Use District; infrastructure; multi-modal connectivity; sustainability; aging in place for elders; medical services; schools; rezoning opportunities; and new zoning districts. There will be a project page on the town website to keep everyone updated on the progress of the committee that will include all related documents. On the business front, all six of our business districts have seen changes and/or growth to their respective areas: Four Corners, Routes 250/441, Panorama Valley, Browncroft, Empire Blvd., and LaSalle’s Landing. Supporting local businesses is healthy for Penfield as many of our businesses give back to our community in so many ways including support for youth sports; dance; scouting; schools; visual and performing arts such as Penfield Art Association, the PSO, and Penfield Players; and the many not-for-profits in and around our community. Healthy businesses make for a healthy community, please support all of our Penfield businesses when possible; it does make a difference in so many ways! Also, please remember our many farm and garden stands and centers in Penfield—they offer a wide variety of plants, trees, produce, and many other related goods and materials. I would like to recognize and thank my partners in government, the Penfield Town Board members, for their support as we look to serve all of our residents across Penfield: Andy Moore, Paula Metzler, Linda Kohl, and Rob Quinn. Finally, I welcome and enjoy the opportunity to speak with you on any topic involving our great community as to what you enjoy, what you would like to see more of, and what we might be able to do better. It is your thoughts, ideas, and comments that help us plan new programs, facilities, and services for you and your families. I hope to see you around the town. Please stop me and say hello, I enjoy meeting our new residents and reconnecting with those of you I’ve known over the years. Enjoy your spring and summer…be well and be safe!

Saturday, May 19 • 8 AM - 12 PM We are looking for volunteers for the 3rd annual Terry Rothfuss Memorial Good Neighbor Day to help seniors, veterans, or those who are disabled to do light yard work and spring clean-up. We need volunteers of all ages, so bring the whole family! Know someone who could use the extra hand? Let us know! We will bring scrap to the Penfield Drop-off, rake out flower beds, plant flowers, fix lawn damage from plows, and much more! Terry Rothfuss was a farmer in east Penfield who was a friend to all. He was always ready and willing to help anyone at any time. When he passed away in 2014 there was a huge hole left in the community. His friends and family want to carry on Terry’s legacy of friendship by continuing to help their community and inspire others to do the same.

Summer Readers’ Theatre: Robin Hood By Tim Kelly FREE PERFORMANCE Saturday, July 28 • 6 pm Veterans Memorial Park - Amphitheater For children and parents! This is a new theatrical event for the Penfield Players. Robin Hood is intended for children and parents in a picnic-style venue at the Veterans Memorial Park Amphitheater, 3100 Atlantic Avenue. Families and friends are urged to bring lawn chairs, blanket, and a picnic supper. Robin Hood, the outlaw of Sherwood Forest, leads a merry life with his followers. Anyone who is hungry or who has no place to live is welcome in the greenwood. The citizens of the forest oppose wicked Prince John. He’s taken the place of King Richard the Lion-Hearted, who has gone to the Holy Land on a crusade. One day a caravan cuts through the wood. In the convoy is Robin’s childhood sweetheart, Maid Marian, ward of King Richard. Alas, the evil Lady Merle of Cornwall plans to force Marian to marry the Prince in an effort to make John more acceptable to the people of England. To arms! It’s up to Robin to stop the marriage, defeat a nasty sheriff and secure Nottingham for the king’s return. It’s all done in rousing fashion! The show is suitable for all ages!

Shinrin-Yoku Forest Bathing

June 2 is National Trails Day! Do you often feel stressed and like you are moving way too fast? Craving an easy, almost effortless path to calm and inspiration? Forest bathing (aka Shinrin-Yoku in Japanese) is a simple but scientifically proven practice for quickly boosting our mental, physical and emotional health…fully clothed! Through playful invitations that engage all 12 of our (known) senses, we bathe in the atmosphere of the forest and receive peace, support and guidance from the beings who call it home. All of our ancestors lived in the forest; it’s in our DNA. After millennia of connection, it’s only in the last century that we have lost so much of this knowing. An epidemic of stress-related disease and environmental crises has ensued. Join us for a walk back to connection, to the medicine of the forest…song birds, cool shade, warm sun, and the magical energy of Irondequoit Creek await.

Shinrin-Yoku Forest Bathing for Adults 50+


Deborah Denome and Teresa Keyes, Certified Forest Therapy Guides Reg. No. Day Date Time Fee 344830-A Tue Jun 19 10:00AM-12:00PM $25 Ages 50 and up Channing H. Philbrick Park

Do you remember wonderful times in the woods as a child? Would you like to get back there with a little support? Shinrin-Yoku is Japanese and literally translates into “bathing in the atmosphere of the forest”, fully dressed! It is a gentle path for reconnecting our human selves with the more-than-human world. Through enjoyable invitations that engage all of our 12 (known) senses, we expand our awareness of the forest and receive support and nourishment from the beings who call it home. So many of us knew these connections growing up. It’s only in recent decades that we have lost touch as a society and an epidemic of stress-related disease and environmental crises has ensued. Join us for a walk back to connection. This is a very slow, easy walk on level ground. We will cover a short distance, with plenty of benches, shade trees, singing birds, and the soothing babble of Irondequoit Creek.

DEAR Programs 65 and older who live or pay taxes in Penfield or Brighton. Bri -Pen also provides rides to medical appointments and religious services. • Why do I have to register? Two reasons: 1) we often send updates about class changes or cancellations to your e-mail account or calls to those without access to the internet. 2) Many classes are held in rooms where we can only accommodate a maximum number of people. Registering insures you will be reserved a spot in that program. • Do you repeat programs? Yes, especially those classes with large waiting lists.

DAYTIME EDUCATION AT RECREATION - DEAR - Wisdom at its finest hour! All programs are at the Penfield Community Center unless otherwise stated in description. We are excited to offer classes and lectures to our consortium of lifetime learners. Engaging in intellectual, socially viable cognitive activities to help keep our minds sharp and alert while reducing the risk or delaying the onset of age-related concerns. Daytime Education at Recreation at Penfield Community Center has become an important staple to adults who understand the significance of this idea and would like to reshape the way they spend leisure time, meeting new and interesting people along the way. Join the national movement to learn and share life experience with others, exploring the multitude of free programs available in the following pages.


FAQ: • Are all the classes free? Many DEAR classes are free. There are some exceptions, for example FUNdraising events are fee based and the revenue is used to subsidize our other free classes. • I am not a Penfield resident. Can I still attend a DEAR program? Yes! The first week of registration is for Penfield residents but there after anyone can register. (Note: don’t wait to submit your registration form. We will take non-residents in the order their forms arrive at the Recreation office.) • How do I take part in a DEAR class? Register online, or with a registration form.

Our DEAR participants are truly some of the kindest and most approachable people you will ever have the privilege to meet. • Is there transportation available? Yes, we have recently launched a new free volunteer transportation program in Penfield and Brighton called Bri-Pen Senior Rides. The service is for adults Penfield Recreation | 585-340-8655 

• What if I register for a program but can’t attend all the scheduled classes? Missing a class or two is not an issue. However, if you find you will miss half of the session or decide a class is not for you, please call the Recreation Department to let us know. There are often waiting lists and we would like to give someone else the opportunity to attend. PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER FOR A CLASS YOU WILL NOT ATTEND! There are expenses for each program. Running a class is based on the number of registrations we receive prior to the class beginning. If there is low interest we will cancel the program. We cannot cancel a class due to low attendance once it has begun. By registering for a class, you have told us you want us to allocate funds to run the program. • Do I need to sign in for class? Yes. We request participants to sign in when they arrive for class. This will help us keep track of participation and attendance. • Is there a charge for the coffee? No. Coffee is complimentary. • I have an idea for a possible program. Do I have to be a seasoned instructor? How do I go about offering one at DEAR? We are always looking for new and interesting subjects to add to the schedule and volunteers to facilitate them. You do not have to have experience. The DEAR program celebrates the philosophy “it’s never too late to do anything”. If you have an idea and would like to follow through with organizing one, contact Pam Gerace Mount at Penfield Recreation. Pam is the Recreation Supervisor who coordinates the DEAR program and can be found in the Recreation Department or call her at 340-8664. • What if I have an idea but don’t know how to go about putting it together? The DEAR Advisory Board will help you put a program together. We also will have training sessions scheduled throughout 2018 to teach PowerPoint and tips for using the internet. • Can I donate to DEAR? Yes. Donations are vital to keeping our classes free. We are so grateful to all of the people who have generously given these last few years. Checks, cash and credit cards are all accepted and appreciated. Checks can be made out to Penfield Recreation (DEAR). Classes are now listed by day of the week in chronological order. WE NEED YOU! COME BE A PART OF THE DEAR CREATIVE TEAM. HELP US CONTINUE TO ADD NEW AND INTERESTING PROGRAMS TO THE DEAR SCHEDULE BY DEVELOPING AND RUNNING YOUR OWN CLASS! CONTACT US AT 340-8664.

Time Fee 1:00-2:30PM Free Penfield Community Center

Can you list the ten most important actions we can take to avoid the cataclysmic effects of global warming? I think you will be very surprised at the solutions included on the Top 10 List presented.

If enacted by Congress, it will place a steadily increasing fee on fossil fuels at the well, mine or port of entry and return all of the net proceeds equally to American households to offset their rising energy costs. I think you will be pleasantly surprised by the projected results of implementing this one piece of legislation and by the growing bipartisan support it is receiving right now in Congress. Whether you feel hopeful, hopeless, in-denial or just curious at the moment about how we can solve the overwhelming problem of human-caused climate change and global warming, join us in this two-week course to learn how we can all help to create a more livable world for our children, grandchildren and future generations.
