Future Leaders of Tioga County

Tioga County is growing future leaders. The Tioga County Institute for Advancement Program kicked off with its opening session last month. Nineteen county employees attended the first of five classes that will be given throughout the year. Over a year ago, a Succession Planning Committee was established to examine the approaching retiring county workforce and to identify the leadership positions that would soon be left vacant. The impending loss of historical knowledge and skill sets is a threat to the future success of county government. Therefore, the Planning Committee identified critical roles within the county and with the help of current leaders identified possible internal successors for the future. The Planning Committee studied similar training programs such as Ontario County, and then created Tioga County specific classes intended to educate individuals and help them step into positions of leadership. Classes will include management skills, budgeting and fiscal

skills, county operational procedures, hiring, conflict management, and will increase overall county knowledge. The goal of the institute is to develop a program designed to build leadership skills, to provide technical information and to prepare individuals for future opportunities within Tioga County Government.

Forty-seven members of the Triple Cities Ski Club (TCSC) enjoyed skiing during a week-long trip in the Alps at St. Anton am Arlberg, Austria. St. Anton received a total of 21 inches of snow before and during their stay, so much snow that transportation in and out of the area was shut down for a few days after their arrival due to an over abundance of snow and avalanche dangers. Skiers witnessed breathtaking views with every turn. Ten members

took a side trip by train to Innsbruck, Austria on the last day. Upcoming TCSC trips are to Killington, VT; Snow Basin and Powder Mountain, Utah; Belleayre, NY; and Mount Snow, VT. The 325member group meets the first Thursday of the month through May at 7 pm at Knights of Columbus, 136 Park Avenue in, Binghamton. Triplecitiesskiclub.com

Repairs that must be made include cement and concrete replacement, cast iron refurbishment, repainting, pipe, plumbing and pump work, basin liner repair and updated landscaping.

TEAM Tioga Works for You

The Tioga County Department of Economic Development and Planning (EDP), Tioga County Industrial Development Agency (IDA), and the Tioga County Local Development Corporation (LDC) unveiled their new look, brand, and name last month. The three organizations are now known simply as TEAM Tioga. “Before TEAM Tioga, people only referred to us individually,” said LeeAnn Tinney, Director of Tioga County EDP, “Although we are known as different entities, we collaborate on so many projects that the lines tend to blur. This made us wonder, why not identify ourselves as one team?” Madison Tinney, a Freelance Graphic Designer located in the Owego area, developed the new brand strategy for the organizations. In November, TEAM Tioga selected Tinney to develop a comprehensive branding

and marketing strategy. Elements of the strategy include a cohesive TEAM Tioga identity, as well as, a social media and advertising campaign to enhance awareness of economic development activities in our local community and across the region. According to Bryant Myers, Executive Director of the Tioga County IDA, “Together we all have the same mission to strengthen the Tioga County economy. TEAM Tioga provides the resources, funding opportunities and contacts that will help our businesses grow.” Rebecca Maffei, Director of Tioga County Tourism added, “TEAM Tioga will make it easier for the community to find the resources they need. No matter what your business may be, we will connect you with the right person. We work for you.” TEAM Tioga’s Facebook page launched earlier this week. They will also be sharing the new brand and logo at the Tioga Chamber Annual Dinner Meeting on February 15, from 5:00 to 9:00 pm. Gwen Kania, President and CEO of the Tioga County Chamber of Commerce stated, “The Chamber is proud to be a Team Tioga partner, and we would like to invite the businesses and the community to partner with them as well.” For more information about TEAM Tioga visit their Facebook page.

Senator Fred Akshar visited three local schools last month to continue his “Akshar's All-Stars” district-wide student recognition program. Each month, Senator Akshar recognizes three or four local students selected by their school districts in the 52nd Senate District who have shown great leadership, compassion, school spirit or improvement amongst their peers. For each student recognized as an “Akshar All-Star” Senator Akshar presents them with a T-shirt, framed certificate, and a challenge coin. In the first three months months since beginning the program, Akshar recognized students at MaineEndwell Middle School, Windsor Central School District, Harpursville Central High School, Tioga Central High School, Vestal Middle School, Oxford High School, Norwich High Schoool, Delaware Chenango Madison Otsego (DCMO) BOCES, Deposit High School and Newark Valley High School. Akshar recently recognized students at Owego Free Academy, Union Endicott High School, and Greene High School. At Owego Free Academy, Akshar recognized senior Kennedy Keefer (pictured above) for being a true fighter and not letting adversity or medical issues stand in her way, achieving success and fulfillment both in and out of school. Thanks to her hard academic work, Kennedy will graduate with several college

credits to give her a head start in her continued education. Kennedy is a long standing member of Key Club (serving as president this year), an active member of the YES LEADs program, SADD, and the yearbook staff. In addition, she is a member of Girl Scouts since the age of 6 and has achieved all of the top awardsBronze, Silver and Gold. She works part time since 2016, most recently as a student aide at Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital for an average of 20 hours a week. At Union-Endicott High School, Akshar recognized senior Jonathan Dallard for his outstanding commitment to academic excellence and service to his community. At Greene High School, Akshar recognized junior Sara Tanzini for her positive attitude, unflappable work ethic and always being willing to lend a hand to other students. Senator Fred Akshar said, “This is a great opportunity for us to work with school districts throughout the 52nd Senate District to recognize outstanding young people who are doing wonderful things in our community. Whether they’re in 2nd Grade or a senior in high school, we want to bring attention to those students who are making a difference in their own lives and in the lives of those around them. They inspire us all by showing us the good that exists in our communities.”

OA Music Dept. to Present “Hello, Dolly”

The Owego Apalachin Music Department, including over 50 students in the cast, stage crew, and pit orchestra, are excited to present the Tony Award winning musical “Hello, Dolly!” on Friday, February 9, at 7:30pm; Saturday, February 10 at 7:30pm; and Sunday, February 11 at 2:30pm; in the Owego-Apalachin Theater within the OA Middle School at Sheldon Guile Boulevard in Owego. First produced on Broadway in 1964 by David Merrick, “Hello, Dolly!” won 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The show has become one of the most enduring musical hits, with four Broadway revivals, most recently starring Bette Midler in the title role. In 1969, Barbra Streisand starred in the film version. The musical takes place in the 1890s in New York City. Widow Dolly Levi (Ellie Casterline) is a bold socialite turned matchmaker. Her latest clients are the argumentative “half-a-millionaire” Horace Vandergelder (Nic Hulbert) and a young artist named Ambrose (Andrew Clark), who is in love with Horace’s niece, Ermengarde (Abigail Murtha). Dolly’s scheming soon involves Horace’s employees, Cornelius and Barnaby (Camden Dyer-DeCator and Colby Selover), as well as a New York milliner

Irene Molloy (Abigail Dove) and her friend Minnie Fay (Olivia Holt). Dolly uses these other schemes to cover up her own romantic desires. Megan Burrell and Mike Meaney codirect the cast of 50 students in support of Dolly’s schemes, while Katherine Gould has choreographed entertaining numbers. Under the technical direction of Nate Brown and artistic direction of Christine Crossgrove, the stage is transformed with beautiful Victorian sets. Colleen Dewey-Wright will have the cast in full costume to add to the story. Well-known songs “Put on Your Sunday Clothes” and “Hello, Dolly” are played by the wonderful pit orchestra directed by Nicholas Olesko. Tickets are $8.00 for adults and $6.00 for seniors and students. Reserve tickets before February 7 by calling 687-7301 Ext 4 or online at https://goo.gl/forms/ DRpzK2tmTuLi12P63. Your tickets will be waiting in the lobby at Will Call the day of the performance. Tickets will also be available for purchase in the lobby, starting one hour before the performance time. Ticket purchases can be made by cash or check. Theater doors will open 30 minutes before show time. Concessions will be available for purchase (cash only).

ART Class Splash Workshops Remember how fun elementary school art class was? You’d walk in and find stacks of manilla paper, pots of paint, or maybe clay at your table. Every class was an adventure. Now you can reclaim that feeling of artistic exploration through a series of art workshops offered at Candor Free Library. Local artist and book illustrator, Johanna Husband is offering ART Splash workshops for ages 8 to 108, though children under 12 will need to be accompanied by an adult. “We’ll paint, draw, sculpt, make collage, and create fiber art,” says Johanna. “It’s an opportunity for

adults to rediscover the artistic kid inside themselves, and for younger people to try new things.” ART Splash workshops will be on the third Sunday of each month, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. There is a nominal fee of $5 to cover materials, and participants are asked to bring their own smocks or aprons. Art Splash is art fun for all ages. To register, call Johanna at 6597375 or 659-7258 or e-mail jvandersterre@me.com The Candor Free Library is at the corner of Main and Banks Street in Candor.
