Message From The Director & Supervisor

Director’s Message

Happy SUMMER! I hope you enjoy the “NEW LOOK” to this brochure. We realized it was time for a new look and we are excited to share the new format with everyone! In every brochure I try to emphasize some of the upcoming programs and events as well as reflect on some of the highlights from the previous seasons. I thought I would take a different approach this issue. It has been 5 years since I became the Director of Recreation, and as I look back 5 years, I am most proud of the changes the department staff has made to improve the quality of programs. As a department, we know we can no longer offer programs just because we always have. The staff is always looking for new and creative programs to fill the community center. We will continue to offer programs that are most needed and well received, thus utilizing our staff time in the most efficient manner.

.I appreciate those who have taken the time to share their thoughts and ideas for programs with the department. The entire department team is always willing to take time to listen to the suggestions of residents on programs, events, and any other recreation-related interests. Recently, we had a resident stop by the office on a typical Wednesday morning to share how happy it makes her feel to come to the community center and see all of the activities for young and old. We encourage and embrace interaction with our residents. The more we are engaged with the residents the better our understanding of community needs. If you have something to share with the department or me, I encourage you to stop by the office and talk with me or any staff member. .We will be updating the Recreation Masterplan in the coming months and I encourage you to be a part of that process. In 2012, when the masterplan was updated, it was great to hear from so many residents. We will always accept your input, and if you have an interest in the direction of the recreation department, we encourage you to take the opportunity to share your ideas.

Christopher K. Bilow

Supervisor’s Message

I want to begin this message by recognizing all of the Penfield town employees for their efforts to keep our community and residents safe during the destructive March 8 wind storm that ripped through all Monroe County towns and villages. Reports from many different sources say the damage rivaled that of the 2001 ice storm. Many town employees had no power and had damage to their own homes and properties; however, they worked around-the-clock to clear roadways, assess damage, provide resources to utility workers, and support residents and businesses throughout Penfield. Great job team ­— you are all professionals who serve our community well. Thank you for your efforts, not only during this event but each and every day. Our department heads continue to prepare for late spring and summer programs, activities, and construction projects. Please stay informed about all town news and events by regularly visiting www.penfield.org, watching or attending town meetings, reading my weekly column, and following us on social media. There will be a lot of exciting things going on in Penfield for all ages, from music and concerts at the Penfield Amphitheater & Kiwanis Stage to the expanded Penfield Library programs, including story time, the reading game, and LEGO Lab. There will be hikes, dances, sports activities and camps, field trips, arts and crafts, aquatic wellness, DEAR programs, day trips, and parades. Registration starts on May 1, but do not delay our programs fill up quickly due to their popularity! Mark your calendars for May 29 at 10:30 AM for the annual Memorial Day Ceremony of Remembrance. This event has been recognized as one of the most popular and moving events in Monroe County. The featured parade of roses is a touching tribute to all of those who served our country and for those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom… their life. The Penfield Town Board recently extended the moratorium for the Shadows golf courses through March of 2018. This will allow the town board and the Dolomite Group the opportunity to explore all options for preserving open space and recreational and general municipal Penfield Recreation | 585-340-8655 

uses. Stay connected to this project at www.penfield.org. Click on the “Shadows Moratorium Committee” for the most current and accurate information. Traditionally, we host a Penfield-Webster household hazardous waste drop-off with Monroe County each spring. However, this year Monroe County has moved the collection to September 16 from 7:45 AM to 1:00 PM. This year’s event will be held at Webster DPW and reservations are required. As we get closer to the date we will provide more information on our website, social media, and other town communications. The annual spring drop-off event for Penfield residents is scheduled for May 19 from 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM and May 20 from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM at the DPW facility, 1607 Jackson Road. The annual fall recycling event is scheduled for Saturday, October 14 from 7:30 AM to 3:30 PM at the same location. Again, more details will be shared as we get closer to the events. As reported over the winter, installation of a solar array at DPW is slated to begin over the next few months. This project will provide approximately 70–75 percent of the overall electrical usage of all our town facilities. Installation of this project is part of a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Solar City. With this PPA, Solar City pays the entire cost of equipment and materials up front and no Penfield taxpayer money is being spent on the project. This is another initiative to help manage the cost of government in our community. As always, I like to recognize my partners in government, the Penfield Town Board: Linda Kohl, Paula Metzler, Andy Moore, and Rob Quinn. This is the group that advises me and provides the framework for general operations of our great community. I always enjoy speaking to residents when they come into the town hall, stop me at the grocery store or other Penfield business, or catch me at one of our many community events. It’s always good to exchange hellos and learn what people like about Penfield and hear ideas as to how to make our community even better. Thank you in advance for your thoughts and feedback. Until the next time…be well and be safe!

An escape game is a real-life experience where participants are locked in a room and must use elements of the room, the group’s collective knowledge, and wits to discover clues, solve puzzles, and escape and/or find the missing item within a set amount of time. We have designed an escape room especially for the DEAR program so you can experience this fun interactive game. The same theme will be offered on three separate dates as there are a limited number of players per game. Please register for only one event.
