A grateful thank you to the community from CAVAC

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: On July 5 and 6, CAVAC (Cazenovia Area Volunteer Ambulance Corps) held its annual Cazenovia Arts and Crafts Fair at Lorenzo State Historic Site. There were more than 100 craft and food vendors who participated in CAVAC’s only fundraising event of the year. We had a record high of more than 10,000 visitors who attended the event over the weekend. The huge success of the event can be attributed to the efforts of many people and organizations throughout the community.

A resident’s tribute to Circa

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: I’ve been thinking about the rationale we as a community have been using about Circa, the slow-food restaurant that is being forced out of business by rising rents. Why should we keep it open? It’s good for our property values? It’s good for Route 20 tourism? It proves we are a cool small town?

‘Quiet’ is a resource to be preserved

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

“Peace and quiet” is a resource that most of us have taken for granted comes with living in a small town in a rural setting. As someone who frequently travels to large and chaotic international cities, I can attest to the restorative value of Cazenovia’s quietude. However, like Cazenovia’s other unique resources, quiet is at risk of being lost incrementally unless we proactively preserve it. Fortunately, Cazenovia’s town board saw this and recently introduced a draft noise ordinance together with an ordinance governing regulation of “special events.”

Kudos to Cazenovia High School Music Department for great concert

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Please share with the music department my sincerest congratulations on an outstanding performance at the Civic Center. This was the first Cazenovia concert I attended at the Civic Center, and I was a bit skeptical, given the expense and effort of bringing performers and audience from Cazenovia to Syracuse.
