Fall 2021

As you read this message, the Penfield Rec summer programs we were so excited to plan for you are wrapping up. Day camps returned at levels close to what they were before the pandemic, and it’s been wonderful to see your children back at camp and enjoying the many activities our staff members put together for them! The amphitheater concert series has been well received and attended as we have added a number of new bands for all ages. Weekly music programs run through August 17 with the annual Tastin’ the Blues Event wrapping up the 2021 season on September 11 with a variety of food trucks and music by Steve Grills & the Roadmasters featuring Joe Beard. I would like to recognize and thank the Penfield-Perinton Kiwanis Club, Wegmans, The Woodlands-Fairport Baptist Homes and SYNERGY IT Solutions for sponsoring our amphitheater events. There’s been a lot of activity at Shadow Pines over the last several months with mowing, removal of dead and diseased trees, the layout of a disc golf course taking shape, plans for pickleball courts and biking trails coming along, and work being performed on the Clark House. All of these projects help expand the uses of this roughly 212-acre parcel for the enjoyment of our residents and visitors to Penfield. I would like to recognize our DPW staff, BME Engineering, Bergman Associates, and the many residents and groups who have offered up ideas and volunteered to assist in developing this property. The 2022 budget is well underway with all of our department heads providing details for their plans and programs for the upcoming year. The comptroller and I will be formally presenting the Tentative Budget to the town board on September 15. There will be a public hearing on the budget on October 6. The Tentative, Preliminary, and Final Budgets will all be online for everyone to review. Any and all questions regarding the budget may be directed to the Finance Office at 340-8621 or the Supervisor’s Office at 3408630. As you may recall, Penfield Little League was selected to host the NYS Little League Championships for 10-12 year old boys for three consecutive years beginning with a 2019 debut that was a huge success. Unsurprisingly, COVID essentially erased all activities in 2020. I am delighted to report that the championships will be held in Penfield in 2021 and 2022. Hosting this tournament is a significant honor for the entire Penfield Community. Congratulations to Penfield Little League and everyone involved for making this happen! Now that we have gotten back to “mostly normal” from the pandemic, I want to recognize all of our employees for their efforts during those very unusual times. They found innovative ways to safely run public meetings and programs via Zoom and streaming media to keep us all connected and informed. They were resourceful and creative as they performed all aspects of their jobs to keep roads maintained, storm and sanitary sewers flowing, and facilities configured to keep residents and employees safe. Emails, phone calls–and yes, even snail mail–helped to maintain a work flow for permits, hearings, tax collection and general operations. Employees worked across departments to help one another stay safe while keeping the business of the Town on track. I hope none of us will ever have to experience another pandemic in our lifetime. I am confident that the team of Penfield employees can handle any emergency that comes up at any time and will continue to serve our community as the professionals they are…thank you team for all you do for all of us! As always, I look forward to seeing you out in our great community. Please stop me to say hello; I always enjoy speaking with Penfield residents and visitors to hear your thoughts about the town and the things you like about it. I also welcome your ideas for opportunities as to how we make it better for you and the next generations. Be well and be safe!

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat, our narrator, tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child, who gets in trouble for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton’s challenge is twofold–not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must also guard an abandoned egg that’s been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant! Perinton Community Center is located at 1350 Turk Hill Road, Fairport.

Power of Meditation and Mindfulness in Unprecedented Times

Date Time Fee Oct 1-29 10:30AM-12:00PM $60 (No class 10/15) Nov 5-Dec 3 10:30AM-12:00PM $60 (No class 11/26) Penfield Community Center

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.

Time 10:00AM

“She was born in a log cabin in 1887. Her father lost his leg as a Confederate soldier in the Civil War. She was one of 15 children, married young, and had 11 children of her own. Her husband beat her for 33 years before she got a divorce. At age 67, she made her first attempt at hiking the Appalachian Trail in 1954, but got lost in Maine. The Rangers told her to never come back, so the next year she started in Georgia. Before long she became the darling of the press, as she used a shower curtain for a tent, a gunny sack for a backpack, and climbed mountains in tennis shoes. Yes, she made it up to Maine, and the Rangers did not say a word! She went on to hike the AT two more times, the Oregon Trail once, and over 10,000 miles in all. On June 7, 1973, she died of a heart attack, singing “Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory of the Coming of the Lord.” You absolutely need to meet this woman – Grandma Gatewood. 28

The Life and Career of Soldier Mingo Sanders by Rand Darrow Performed by Robert Djed Snead Act. No. Day Date 466413-09 Thu Oct 21 466413-10 Thu Oct 21

Time Lunch Lecture only

Fee $6 Free

Sergeant Sanders’ life and career will be portrayed by local actor Robert Djed Snead in this one hour play reading of Sergeant Sanders’ incredible story. Among the soldiers of the 25th Infantry was Sergeant Mingo Sanders, a black career soldier and member of the bicycle corps. Respected by his peers and his commanding officers, he distinguished himself multiple times in Cuba during the SpanishAmerican War. Sadly, in 1906, Sanders was one of the 167 soldiers discharged without honor after being accused of causing violence in Brownsville, Texas. Sanders, who was less than two years away from full retirement, became the face of the wronged soldiers when he traveled to Washington DC to appeal the discharge.

The Colosseum is an oval amphitheater in the center of the city of Rome, Italy. It is the largest ancient amphitheater ever built and is still the largest standing amphitheater in the world today, built of travertine limestone, tuff (volcanic rock), and brick-faced concrete. The Colosseum could hold an estimated 50,000 to 80,000 spectators at various points in its history, having an average audience of some 65,000. It was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles, including animal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas based on Roman mythology, and briefly mock sea battles. The building ceased to be used for entertainment in the early medieval era. It was later reused for such purposes as housing, workshops, quarters for a religious order, a fortress, a quarry, and a Christian shrine. Pompeii was an ancient city located near Naples in the Campania region of Italy. Pompeii was buried under 13 to 20 ft of volcanic ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79. Pompeii was rediscovered in 1592, and excavation of the site has been going on sporadically at some level since then, especially during the last century. About onethird of Pompeii remains buried. Objects buried beneath Pompeii were well-preserved for almost 2,000 years as the lack of air and moisture allowed little to no deterioration. However, once exposed, Pompeii has been subject to both natural and man-made forces, which have rapidly increased deterioration. Join George for another arm chair travel tour of these ancient sites in Italy.

DEAR - Daytime Education at Recreation Civil War Medicine

Kathleen Britton, Rochester Medical Museum Act. No. Day Date Time 466413-15 Thu Nov 18 Lunch 466413-16 Thu Nov 18 Lecture only

Let’s Get Crafty – Art and Craft Work Day Fee $6 Free

We are thrilled to have Kathleen Britton from Rochester’s Medical Museum join us for a presentation on Civil War Medicine. The American Civil War is considered one of the most defining periods in American history. The war touched the lives of every American and influenced the early history of the Rochester City Hospital. The magnitude of combat casualties prompted the creation of the Army Medical Corps. The efficient organization of hospitals coupled with medical advancements such as camp sanitation, improved methods of transportation, and hospital design helped to decrease mortality rates and left a lasting effect on medical science for decades. Additionally, the Civil War became the training ground for many surgeons who would later become respected members of Rochester City Hospital’s medical staff.
