And Speaking of Our Biggest Fundraiser.......
It was as usual a financial success, and along with the dedication of the 1895 Village Lock-Up it became an afternoon of great food, fun and entertainment for all who attended. Town Supervisor Steve Walters, Town Clerk Cathy Rybczynski, and Town Police Chief Greg Wickett became the first to be "Locked Up" in the reconstructed jail until they secured bail. Of course it was all in fun as they were released after about 30 minutes donating their bail to the Society.
