Mount Morris Matters
Dam tour is time well spent
The Visitor Center at Mount Morris Dam is open and offering free tours. Tours are limited to 30 people and are first come-first served. So come early and check out our visitor center. It’s a great free tour and an awesome sight.
The family of Bill Truax would like to thank everyone for the money raised in the First Annual Bill Truax Memorial Gold Tournament.
Through the generosity of Triple Creek Golf Course, 79 golfers, area businesses, and friends, $3,400 was raised and has been donated to the Noyes Memorial Hospital Chemotherapy Infusion Unit.
A big thank you to the 79 golfers who participated.
The Mount Morris Library would like to thank all the parents and children who participated in the Summer Reading Program “Dream Big-Read” and “Own the Night.” Attendance was over 300 for our eight programs.
We are all grateful to Stephanie Gehrig, Kaitlin Camidge, Joyce Tantillo and Sharon Stanley for planning the programs, and to Leona Davis for planning the programs, and to Jon Stanley for helping to carry them out. Noelle Davis took the photographs that appeared on our Facebook page.
Richard and Cathie Barry graciously provided “Theatre 101” for the three programs that were too large to be held at the library. Community members gave us their time.
Police Officers Jeremy Blair gave a talk on street safety, Bill D’Angelo from the fire department read to the children and stressed fire safety. The children were given a chance to tour the fire truck and were provided with firemen hats and Colleen Powers shared her knowledge of American sign language and provided booklets for the children.
Local businesses were generous as well. “The Mount Morris Shopper” helped out with publicity, “Leaning Tower” provided pizza’s and “The All Around Shop,” “Jane’s Pantry,” and “Bob’s Dugout” each provided reading incentive. We apologize to anyone who assisted us this summer that we have omitted.
If you would like to contribute to the Library, you can return your bottles and cans at the ARC Redemption Center. Just tell the clerk you would like the refunds to be applied to the Mount Morris Library before you begin the transaction.
If you are unable to get to the redemption center, pick up can be arraigned by calling the Mount Morris Library at 658-4412.
To the residents of Mount Morris: The Mayor and Village Board would like to invite you to the dedication of the Mount Morris Patriots Park, Sunday, Sept. 22 at 11 a.m., and doesn’t the park look beautiful?
Have you stopped at Dave’s Hot Dog Stand on Main St.? My husband and I stopped the other day for lunch. We enjoyed a delicious hot dog and cold drink, while sitting at a table and chatting with neighbors in the small park like setting.
The stand is run by Dave Provo and I think it’s a nice addition to Main Street and adds to the old time look of our village.
Words to Ponder: Enjoy life. This is not a dress rehearsal.
