Tribute to William “Bill” Ray was Highlight
Of Sidney’s Annual Arbor Day Celebration
SIDNEY - The planting
and dedication of a Crimson
King tree in memory of William “Bill” Ray and reference
to the new sign at the Bill Ray
field where the ceremony took
place were highlights of the
23rd Annual Sidney Arbor
Day celebration Friday, April
24.
Family and friends joined
the community in recognizing the contributions made by
Bill Ray, especially as related
to the youth. Longtime friend
Harry Knapp spoke of Bill’s
efforts on behalf of both the
young people and adults. “Bill
was devoted to the Moose
Lodge Little League and spent
many hours manicuring the
field, mowing and raking, and
supervising the games,” said
Knapp. He also credited Bill
for organizing and running the
adult softball league. “If Bill
hadn’t been there, there probably wouldn’t have been any
adult leagues, and maybe not
Little Leagues.” Knapp also
thanked Bill’s wife Diane for
“being so generous to share
Bill with us.”
Knapp said Bill had a huge
impact on the young people,
and was well respected by
youth and adults alike.
Paul Foote, representing
the Sidney Recreation Com-
mission, spoke of Bill’s work
on the commission serving as
chairman for over 30 years.
In reference to the sign at the
park that reads, “Welcome
to Bill Ray Field. Enjoy the
Game”, Foote said that the
Sidney Recreation Commission had received donations
in Bill’s memory and thought
it appropriate to construct the
sign. The sign was designed
and constructed by Charlie
Washburn.
Foote also thanked Bill’s
wife Diane and family “for
allowing Bill to volunteer
countless hours at the field.”
He also thanked Bill’s son
Scott for taking over the caretaking duties. “I always joke
that the best thing the village
ever did was name this the
Bill Ray Field. As we all know
that it would
be
done
right with
his
name
attached.”
The program also
included the
presentation
of the Tree
City USA
Award
to
the village
by
Jason
Drobaneck,
Region 4 Forester NYSDEC.
The Sidney Shade Tree Commission, formed in 1983,
continues to work hard to
fulfill the standards required
for the Village of Sidney to
be designed Tree City USA
by the National Arbor Day
Foundation.
Also taking part in the Arbor
Day program and in recognizing the contributions Bill Ray
made to his community, and
the value of the tree planting
program in the village were
Sidney Village Mayor Andy
Matviak and Jim Suriano, long
time member and chairman of
the Shade Tree Commission.
Jim was credited with being
the driving force behind efforts to continue the tradition
of the Arbor Day celebration,
now in its 23rd year.
BAINBRIDGE - The General Clinton Canoe Regatta
Finish Line celebration is
held in Bainbridge. Starting
in Cooperstown, the race is
the longest flat-water, one day,
canoe race in the world. Drawing people from all over the
U.S. and Canada, the Regatta
is a full weekend of canoeing,
contests, fair rides, entertainment and fun, drawing close
to 15,000 local attendees and
tourists. The Jericho Arts
Council of Bainbridge wants
to make the Regatta even better. With the May 2 opening
of the “Bainbridge Art Trail
– Regatta Row” local artists
have an opportunity to become
involved and to bring art to the
streets and to the public. The
local economy is also boosted
by using art to draw business.
Historically, the arts have
been a way of telling stories,
translating emotions and inspiring creativity and original
thinking. Each artist has been
given a custom designed Adirondack chair that features actual canoe paddles for the back
and is suitable for outdoor display and use. Artists will decorate or paint the “Paddle Chair
Sculptures” to commemorate
the Canoe Regatta and aspects
of local history, culture, business, or nature of Bainbridge.
Also, the Greenlawn Elementary School Art Department
has invited children to create
Regatta or Bainbridge themed
drawings to be exhibited in
store windows in Bainbridge.
The chairs are as varied as
the artists. One includes an
embedded thousand-year old
arrowhead from the Susquehanna, others feature the
Bainbridge countryside, pool
tables, eagles and even the
cuddly Susquehanna Monster’s picnic. Golden Artist
Colors sponsored all of the
fine art paints that bring these
themes to life.
The “Street Art Fest” and
“Meet the Artists” night in
Bainbridge invites you to attend the opening night celebration, this Saturday, May 2
from 6 to 8 p.m. The 14 artful
chairs will be displayed on the
sidewalks of Bainbridge along
N. Main Street and Rte. 206,
near the center of town. It’s
a wonderful night for family
and friends to become aware,
intrigued and involved with
the Arts.
The artists will be on hand
to talk about their creative
work. The festivities include
the opening of the JAC Fine
Arts Show in the Town Hall
Gallery, live music by four
groups including: Curt Osgood and Annie Simpson; local Seisiun’s Kathy Shimberg,
Jim Haggerty and Jean Withrow; Iron Mountain Variety’s
Steve Eisenberg and the Barn
Cats Dave Rapaelson and John
Potochnic.
In conjunction with the
Bainbridge Chamber of Commerce, there will be a free raffle
and all Bainbridge businesses
are invited to create sidewalk
displays and to give away free
treats, coupons or mini-demos
sharing their expertise.
The exhibit runs through
Memorial Day weekend. On
Saturday, May 23 at 6 p.m.
at the General Clinton Park,
the Paddle Chairs will be auctioned to benefit the Jericho
Arts Council in their mission
to encourage cultural awareness through creativity and
art.

Eileen Tallmadge Receives
Service to Mankind Award
AFTON - In a ceremony
April 14 held at the Afton
Central School, Eileen (Burnsie) Tallmadge was honored
with this year’s Sertoma’s
Service to Mankind Award.
This award is given every year
to a member of our community who has exhibited a commitment and dedication to the
spirit of volunteerism for the
betterment of our local area.
Eileen Tallmadge grew up
in a family of seven and got
involved in Girl Scouting at
an early age when her sister
volunteered her to go on a
camping trip with her troop.
Eileen has been involved with
Girl Scouting ever since. She
has been a Girl Scout leader in
Afton for 16 years. In addition
to the commitment of weekly
meetings, Eileen and her coleaders have provided the opportunity for many girls in our
area to travel. She has taken
the girls to our nation’s capitol
and has accompanied the girls
to the Adirondack Mountains,
Canada, Switzerland and most
recently to England. Eileen has
for 20 years been chairperson
for the Girl Scout Canoe races
in conjunction with the General Clinton Canoe Regatta. She
also stepped in 10 years ago
to take on the boys division
when no Boy Scout personnel would continue it. These
races involve about 250-300
young people, ages 11-18, not
only from our local area but
from all over the Northeast.
She organizes housing at the
local Girl Scout camp, Camp
Amahami, for out-of-towners
participating in the races.
Eileen is passionate about
the value of outdoor experiences for the growth and development of girls. She has
been a camp counselor, and
outdoor event coordinator, a
camp director and is currently

Sidney School Budget, Capital
Project Will Be Explained May 5
SIDNEY - Dr. William
Christensen, District Superintendent at the Sidney Central School, will be holding
a school budget and capital
project informational meeting
on Tuesday, May 5, at 6 p.m.
in the high school library.
This meeting is open to
the public to get information
Afton School to Hold
Budget Hearing May 7
about the adopted school budget and the proposed capital
project. Both will be voted on
by school district residents on
Tuesday, May 19 from 7 a.m.
to 8 p.m. in the lobby outside
of the high school auditorium.
For additional information,
see our district website at
www.sidneycsd.org.
AFTON - The Afton Central
School District will hold it’s
2015/2016 Budget Hearing on
Thursday, May 7 in the board
room directly across from the
district office. Visitors are
asked to use the entrance on
Sand Street for the meeting.
Immediately following the
budget hearing, the regular
monthly meeting will begin.
District residents are invited to attend to obtain informa-
Sidney School Board Approves
Budget with Decrease in Taxes
SIDNEY - The Sidney Central School District Board of
Education approved the proposed annual district budget
for $25,585,252 at its April
21, 2015 meeting. This is a 3
percent increase from the prior
year. The budget also includes,
for the fifth straight year, a decrease in local property taxes of
-.84 percent. Superintendent of
Schools Dr. Christensen stated
“We are once again very pleased
to be able to present a budget to
stakeholders that meets the fiscal requirements of the district,
but also reduces our local tax
burden. Over the past five years
we have reduced the school tax
levy by over $700,000 or over
10 percent. We are, and will
continue to do, everything in
our power to produce the best
school system while attempting
to provide additional opportunities, programs, and lower tax
bills.”
In addition to the budget,
the Sidney Board of Education
also approved seeking voter
approval on the next phase of
construction. The ballot will
request approval for a $14 million dollar capital project that
will include renovations at the
elementary school, boiler at the
high school, additional security,
classroom cabinetry, power upgrades, lighting upgrades, and
parking lot restoration. The lo-
cal share of the project will be
approximately $30,000 per year
or about $2.15 on a $100,000
house. The use of one million
dollars in the capital reserve
along with state EXCEL monies minimizes the local impact
for the project.
Lastly, the district will be
seeking approval to lease new
school buses. The district has
conducted an efficiency study
of transportation and in addition to looking to possibly share
bussing with neighboring districts it is also looking to lease
new busses rather than outright
purchasing the busses. This
provides the most amount of
flexibility in purchasing for the
future and allows the district to
keep newer busses with lower
maintenance costs.
The vote will be held on
Tuesday, May 19 from 7 a.m.
to 8 p.m. in the Sidney High
School Auditorium hallway.

CFF Opposes Construction
Of Compressor Station
FRANKLIN - Currently
the Kinder Morgan Company
is planning the construction
of a second pipeline running parallel to the proposed
Constitution Pipeline. Part
of the plan entails building a
30,000 horsepower compressor station approximately 1.5
miles away from the Village
of Franklin. The “Compressor
Free Franklin” (CFF) group
has been active since early
December 2014 to prevent the
building of such a compressor
station.
According to Donald Hebbard, president of CFF, there
are many reasons why building a compressor station so
close to a residential area is
the wrong thing to do. “The
environmental impact can be
tremendous. Compressor stations exhaust emissions of
methane, toluene, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide and
other noxious gases at unknown concentration levels.
Everything is at stake— the
air we breathe, the water we
drink and the soil we use to
grow our food.”
It is not only for environmental reasons that CFF is
opposed to the construction of
the compressor station. Donald Hebbard continues, “Property values will go down. Our
roads will be damaged during
construction with no guaran-
tee of repairs being paid for
by the gas company. Construction also can cause erosion and mudslides, resulting
in contamination of private
springs and wells. The Village
of Franklin’s public water supply, which also provides water
to Franklin Central School,
is also at risk. And once the
compressor station it is in
operation, there is always the
danger of an explosion.”
“The beautiful unspoiled
landscape, our clean air and
fresh water, is why we enjoy
living here. These are exactly
the things we might lose.”
In spite of all these potential
risks to their health and wellbeing, CFF found that many
people in the town and village
of Franklin are hardly aware
of what might be coming to
them. To increase this awareness, CFF sent out a mailing
recently to all residents of the
town and village. The title of
the mailing is “May Be” and
what follows is a long list of
all the things that may or may
not happen.
Edmond Rinnooy-Kan, who
wrote the text of the mailing,
explains, “The purpose of the
mailing is not to inform people about the facts and figures
of a compressor station, but to
give them a sense of the risks
that would be taken if it was to
be built.”

All Keith Clark employees were invited to a ribboncutting ceremony to mark the
opening of their new office
expansion on Friday, April
27. The new facility has two
floors and is approximately
26,500 square feet. The centerpiece of the new addition
is the new employee cafeteria
that is designed to accommodate over 300 people. In
addition to the new cafeteria,
the first floor also consists of
a modest exercise facility and
training room that can hold 40
people at a time. The second
floor will provide office space
for over 75 employees and is
designed to handle growth for
the foreseeable future.

A federal grant of $91,350
has been offered to the village of Sidney to pay about
one third of the costs of the
required sewage treatment
plant.
At the present time sewage
is being discharged directly
into the Susquehanna River.
The state has required that a
sewage treatment plant be constructed. Sidney filed plans for
a sewage treatment plant and
the required interceptor sewers and these plans have been
approved. The total program
will cost about $316,000.
Explorer Post 99 of Sidney

Bainbridge-Guilford School
teachers who have served
education for 25 years or
more were honored Monday
evening, April 26, in a program sponsored by the B-G
Parent-Teacher Organization.
Florence Race, kindergarten
teacher at Guilford; Margaret Hohreiter, second grade
teacher; George Vicary, senior

April 29, 1920 - In a disastrous fire Saturday, the Casein Manufacturing Co. plant
burned to the ground in one
hour’s time. The plant was
one of the largest of its kind in
the United States. It purchased
dry milk curd from this and
other countries and manufactured casein glues from that.
During the war, the plant was
run to capacity on government
contracts. Bainbridge people
hope that the company will
decide to rebuild. It employed
50 hands and was a source of
great benefit to the community, paying good wages to a
large number of employees.
UNADILLA
25 YEARS AGO
May 2, 1990
A project carried out by
the Village of Unadilla with
the help of second graders
from the Unadilla Elementary
School was very much in keeping with Earth Day and Arbor
Day in April. A Sycamore tree
was planted in Corwin Park in
a special ceremony on Thursday, April 26.
Aerobics Plus opened last
Saturday, April 28 at 78 Main
St., Unadilla, as a family business. The new business features lycra-spandex clothing,
which is manufactured locally. Pat DiLena and his wife,
Katherine, who is the owner
of the Unadilla store, have
about 30 sewing machines
and employ 23 people. About
a year ago, they started their
second manufacturing business in Wells Bridge where
several family members
manufacture clothing. The
opening of the Unadilla store
will have manufacturing with
eight machines.
Unadilla resident Scott
Gladden won the “People’s
Choice” award at the Jericho
Arts Council’s Fine Art show
in the Bainbridge Town Hall
Theatre with his oil painting
“Katie.” That painting also
won second place in the oil
and acrylic category. Last
year, Scott took first place in
that category with his painting
“Amber.”
UNADILLA
55 YEARS AGO
April 29, 1960
Reconstruction at the Unadilla National Bank is now
nearing completion and the
building is rapidly becoming
an addition to the beauty of our
Main St. When the blacktop
drive is completed, the new
drive-in window will be open
during the hours indicated in
the bank advertisement. This
will be a great convenience to
patrons of the bank.
Another
improvement,
which adds appearance to our
Main St. is the attractive new
front just completed at the
funeral home portion of the
Joyce Stores block.
If everything goes according to plan, Unadilla’s electric power will come from the
new sub-station in back of the
D. & H. freight house near
the village garage after today
(Thursday).

their annual charity auction.

clothing and “white goods”
(large kitchen and laundry appliances) will be rejected.

pick-up. Donations can also be
dropped off at the Grange building at the fairgrounds on the day
of the auction before 4 p.m.

fasting for 30 hours, a small
time compared for too many
people around the world today, when hunger is a daily
experience.

‘Green Thumbs’ May Find a Home In
Friends of Rogers Community Gardens
SHERBURNE - For the
second year in a row, Friends
of Rogers invites the local
community to garden at Rogers Environmental Education
Center, where a limited number of raised bed plots are now
open for the season.
Space is available on a firstcome, first-serve basis to individuals and families. Groups
wishing to raise crops for local food cupboards are also
eligible for a spot. Preference
is given to those without space
for a garden at their place of
residence. Participants sign a
contract for the 2015 season
agreeing to garden rules, and
all gardeners are asked to have
an active membership with
Friends of Rogers.
“Growing your own food is
fun, good for you, and good for
the environment,” said Simon
Solomon, Friends of Rogers
executive director. “Community gardens bring people together from a wide variety of
backgrounds and help build
team spirit.”
By hosting this initiative,
Friends of Rogers is providing unique opportunities for
increased exercise, health,
recreation and well-being.
Community gardens stimulate
intergenerational and cross-
cultural social interaction, and
participants benefit from a
natural and inexpensive stress
reliever which also produces
delicious fresh food.
Rogers Center is operated
by Friends of Rogers Environmental Education Center, Inc.,
a nonprofit organization that
offers educational programs for
all ages. Seasonal spring hours
are from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Air Conditioners Provided to Low Income
With Medical Conditions Worsened by Heat
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that $3 million
has been allocated to the Cooling Assistance Component of
the Home Energy Assistance
Program to help low-income
New Yorkers who suffer from
medical conditions aggravated
by extreme heat. The program
will provide air conditioning
units to eligible households
for the summer months. Prolonged exposure to high indoor temperatures poses health
risks that disproportionately
affect those already suffering
from medical ailments.
Local departments of social
services will accept applications to the program beginning
May 1. The Home Energy Assistance Program is overseen
by the New York State Office
of Temporary and Disability
Assistance.
“The summer months can
bring extreme heat, and we
must ensure that our most
vulnerable New Yorkers are
protected,” Governor Cuomo
said. “This program will provide extra assistance to those
who need it to stay safe in
their homes this summer, and I
encourage all who are eligible
to apply.” Last summer, the
program provided cooling assistance to 3,400 households.
To qualify for the subsidized air conditioning units,
households must meet 2015
Home Energy Assistance Program income guidelines and
have a member that suffers
from a documented medical
condition exacerbated by extreme heat. Acceptable written documentation can be
from a physician, physician’s
assistant or nurse practitioner
and must clearly indicate the
need for an air conditioner.
The document must be dated
within the last 12 months.
Cooling assistance is provided on a first-come, firstserved basis. Contact information for local departments
of social services can be found
at http://otda.ny.gov/workingfamilies/dss.asp.
2015 Income Eligibility
Guidelines based on family
size and monthly income are:
1 person, $2,194; 2 people,
$2,869; 3, $3,544; 4, $4,219;
Pine Ridge Groceries
5, $4,894; 6, $5,569; 7,
$5,696; 8, $5,822; 9, $5,949;
10, $6,076; 11, $6,534; and
each additional member, add
$508.

Sidney Community Band
Rehearsals to Start May 12
SIDNEY - The 2015 season
for the Sidney Community
Band will begin with a series
of weekly rehearsals to start
on Tuesday, May 12, at the
Sidney United Methodist
Church on Liberty St. in
Sidney.
For 31 years,
music for all
ages has been
played by musicians of all
ages. We
are a local volunteer group,
comprised
of amateur
music-lovers from
elementary
students to
senior citizens.
In fact, in this, their 32nd
year, SCB had dedicated
its summer concerts to the
memory of Conrad “Connie”
Schlafer. Connie played clarinet with the band through the
age of 94 with the energy of
a teenager. He passed away in
January of this year and will
be greatly missed.
Music selections range
from marches and polkas to
show tunes, big band pieces
and medleys of songs by one
composer or as a theme, such
as movie soundtracks. All
area musicians are invited
to come and try Sidney
Community Band. We
take all skill levels,
and all that is required is a love of
music and a sense
of humor. Student
scholarships are also
available for high school
seniors.
Our director this summer will be Amy Hoxie,
a New Berlin native and
a graduate of the Ithaca
College Music program.
Amy is also “instrumental” in the introduction
to and instruction of band for
elementary students at Sidney Central School. Welcome
Amy.
SCB will present their concert schedule in the coming
weeks. For now, get out that
horn, flute, or sax and get
your “chops” ready in time for
the May 12 start to the 2015
season of Sidney Community
Band!
If you see this
“young” retired
stock car driver,
wish him a
Happy
80th
Birthday
on
May 3rd!

Quote of the Week
The quote of the week is
from Albert Einstein: “Make
everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.” Albert
Einstein was a very smart
man and this is good advice
because everyone doesn’t
always understand what is
going on around them and if
things are kept simple and uncomplicated they might have
a chance to understand better and their world will make
sense to them.
School News
It is almost the end of April,
the budget is in the minds of

education meeting on Tuesday, May 5 in the high school

Pre-Kindergarten Program.

Turkey Hunting
The season began for young
hunters this past weekend with
the regular season to begin on
May 1. Happy hunting everyone and have a safe season.
On the Farm
Here on the farm it is becoming very busy for everyone with the spring chores beginning. The fields are quite
muddy and wet and it seems
that it could be quite some
time before the planting can
begin. We hope for all farmers
that the grasses will grow well
and the corn fields will dry
up for the corn to be planted
and hopefully it will be a good
growing season.
Springtime always brings
calves being born also, and
we have had a few this past
week. With the cool and damp
weather they have been having a hard time getting started
but the ones that are here seem
to be doing well, two bulls are
among them and will be sold.
The cows seem to like the
cooler weather and are milking well.
All us farmers could thank
our truck drivers very much
for picking up the milk for the
creameries around the area
mostly every other day, we
appreciate them very much for
doing it in all kinds of weather
conditions.
Birthday Greetings
Birthday greetings this week
go out to Harold Paul on May
4; Bill Ostrander and Justin
North on May 5; Mikey Wagner and Kathy Ryan on May 6;
Chuck Smith and Austin Scott

POSING WITH NHL PLAYER Nick Grossmann of the Philadelphia Flyers are students in Beth Whittaker’s first grade
class.
NHL Player Nick Grossmann Pays a Visit
To Sidney Elementary School First Grade
SIDNEY - Students in Beth
Whittaker’s first-grade class at
Sidney Elementary School got
a big surprise April 22. Nick
Grossmann, a defender on the
Philadelphia Flyers who has
played in the NHL for 10 seasons, visited the classroom late
in the morning and answered
a plethora of questions about
hockey and his home country
of Sweden.
Grossmann is a family
friend of Whittaker’s, and has
been dating her sister, Rita
Madden, for several years.
Madden visited the class with
Grossmann.
The Flyers missed the playoffs this season, and following the season, Grossmann
and Madden were visiting the
area and wanted to see Whittaker’s first-grade classroom.
Surrounded by first graders, Grossmann and Madden
answered many questions
about Sweden, and hockey.
He taught the class how to
say “hi” in Swedish, which is
“hej,” but pronounced “hey.”
After being asked what else
he likes to do in the winter, he
said he skis, and builds snow
forts and snowmen, which
excited the class. “It snows
a lot,” he said. “We do a lot
in the snow and you have to
dress warm.” One student
asked how this season went,
and Grossmann said his team
just missed the playoffs. “It
was a lot of fun,” he said. “We
won a lot of games, but didn’t
win enough.”
Several questions included
the animals one would see
in Sweden (similar to what
we see in this area, such as
deer and fox, but also moose,
brown bears, and reindeer if
you go north). He also told
students what they might hear
in classrooms from teachers in
Swedish.
He ended by saying the
alphabet in Swedish and the
kids spoke along with him.
SPECIAL GUEST NHL PLAYER Nick Grossmann of
the Philadelphia Flyers, and Rita Madden talk with first
graders at the Sidney Elementary School.

FROM THE PASTOR’S PEN
May Fellowship Breakfast
Will Be May 1 at Saint Agnes
Living as Disciples of God.
By Pastor Ernie Varga, St. Luke’s Lutheran Church
“We receive from him whatever we ask, because we obey his
commandments and do what pleases him. And this is his commandment that we should believe in name of his son Jesus Christ
and love one another, just as he has commanded us”
1 John 3: 22-23
What does it mean to follow and love God? What does it
mean for us to be a true disciple of God? This question is not an
easy one. There is more to loving God and being his follower
than we realize. It doesn’t just mean that we just go to church
each Sunday morning and then give him marginal acknowledgement the rest of the week. To love God and to following him
means that we live in a close relationship with him. A relationship that he established with us. In this relationship he set forth
the ground work for us to be able to love him, because he first
loved us.
Jesus went willingly to the cross to express God’s love to us.
In 1 John 3:16, “We know love by this, that Jesus Christ laid
down his life for us.” He shows us what true love is all about.
It is the highest form of love, self-sacrificing love. It knows no
bounds. Jesus loved all people, no matter who or what they are.
Look at the people he ate and associated with. They were the
despised and rejected people. The ones that the Pharisees and
Sadducees (the religious leader) of Jesus time rejected and despised. Just think of the despised and the rejected people the
Pharisees and the Sadducees hate and condemn in our day.
The love that Jesus wants for us is having that same self-sacrificing love that Jesus has for us. Willing to go the extra mile for
those around us and in our world. 1 John 3:16 goes on to state,
“we ought to lay down our lives for one another.” For in doing
so we express the God’s love for our fellow human beings. In
verse 18 of 1 John 3, we read: “let us love, not in word or speech
but in truth and action.”
Being disciples of Jesus is more than saying I believe in Jesus.
That one goes to church for that one hour and returns to one’s
own way of life. To love is to proclaim Jesus not with just our
words but also with our actions. Our world can be a dark and
lonely place. Many may wear smiles on their faces but are crying on the inside with hurts and the brokenness of life.
As Christians and disciples of Jesus we need to be a people
of action. Jesus said in Matthew 25:35-40: “ I was hungry and
you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to
drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36I was naked and
you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was
in prison and you visited me.’ 37Then the righteous will answer
him, ‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you
food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? 38And when
was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked
and gave you clothing? 39And when was it that we saw you sick
or in prison and visited you?’ 40And the king will answer them,
‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who
are members of my family, you did it to me.’”
When we see people in need and address their issues we are
showing God’s love and living as his disciples. So God’s love
is always active in the lives of his disciples. Reaching out to the
lost and forgotten as he did in his day. Do we just do lip service
to God with just giving money into the offering plate to help
others help them or do we try to reach out and act on the needs
of the others. Texts like these help us to understand what love
is really all about.
SIDNEY - The annual May
Fellowship Breakfast will be

Community Foundation of Unadilla
Is Accepting Grant Requests
UNADILLA – The Community Foundation of Unadilla
is accepting requests for financial assistance to local groups
and organizations that will
benefit the community and
promote the general welfare.
Requests must be received by
May 29 using only the Grant
Application Form and will be
considered at the annual meeting in mid-June. Forms may
be requested by e-mailing
[email protected] or by
writing to the Foundation at
PO Box 608 Unadilla, NY
13849. Forms will be in Microsoft Word or PDF version
11 formats.
The Foundation was formed
in 1971 and is a tax exempt
organization. It gives people a
way to help support community projects and benevolent
causes in the Unadilla area.
The Foundation accepts donations and bequests which are
managed to provide long term
growth so that the interest may
be dispersed on a yearly basis.
Many residents’ estate planning has greatly expanded the
Foundation’s ability to help
our local civic organizations.
Over the years the Foundation has been able to help
many groups including the
Delaware Humane Society,
Unadilla Fire Department and
Emergency Squad, Scouts,
sports groups and Unatego
Alumni Association to name a
few. For a Past Unatego Student in good standing in their
second year attending SUNY
Oneonta or Hartwick College
and studying in the Arts, they
can apply for the Virginia Herman Grant.
The Foundation would be
happy to share more information on our mission and how
you can give a tax exempt donation or share in your estate

Eileen Tallmadge Receives
Service to Mankind Award
(Continued from Page 1)
the driving force behind the
Friends of Amahami, a group
dedicated to keeping this pristine Girl Scout Camp open
and in good repair.
Girl Scouting is not the
only activity “Burnsie” works
on. Eileen works as a teacher
with BOCES at the Norwich
Campus. During the 2006 and
2011 floods Eileen, her husband Bill and daughters Caty
and Leslie could be found
helping with whatever needed
to be done, including paddling her canoe through the
flood waters to the Afton Edge
Apartments to retrieve needed
items left behind by the residents hasty departure, including medicines, photos, personal effects and even a caged
parakeet. Besides all this, she
has also served on the Afton
Community Theater board
of directors and has worked
both on stage and behind the
scenes on many productions.
Eileen can also be found Sun-
day mornings playing her guitar for services at St. Agnes’
Catholic Church.
For all this, and much more,
the Afton Sertoma Club is
pleased to honor Eileen Tallmadge with its Service to Mankind Award. Eileen epitomizes
what community service is all
about and she serves as a role
model for many young people
in the area.
