Best-selling Author, Bard College Professor Daniel Mendelsohn to Lecture at Hamilton College

Hamilton College - Kennedy Auditorium in the Taylor Science Center

Best-selling author and Bard College professor Daniel Mendelsohn will present a lecture, "An Odyssey: A Father, A Son, and An Epic." Mendelsohn’s talk will intertwine an ongoing reading of the Greek classic "The Odyssey", around a personal narrative that itself combines adventures both real and metaphorical. That narrative is a father-son story: an account of how a year-long reading of the poem that the author undertook with his ailing father affected their relationship to each other and, eventually, to the enduring questions the author was faced with once his father fell ill and began to die. His talk will be a combination of a reading from this new work and a discussion of it.

(Taken from http://www.uua.org/ ) Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that embraces theological diversity; we welcome different beliefs and affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Working for justice in our world is a principal way for Unitarian Universalists to express their faith.

Book Signing -Flames of the Past

Frank J. Basloe Library 245 North Main Street Herkimer

Barbara Gunter Anderson, a long time residence of Herkimer presently residing in Bradenton Florida, will be having a book signing of her new book Flames of the Past at the Frank J. Basloe Library, 245 North Main Street, Herkimer, NY on September 22nd from 5pm-8pm. Mrs. Anderson is the designer and editor of Flames of the Past which is authored by her deceased father, Rev. Samuel T. Gunter. Rev. Gunter, who pastored the Free Methodist Church in both Herkimer and Utica, was born in 1871 in the backwoods of Gunter, Ontario, Canada and grew up among the ruggedness and simplicity of civilization marking the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. His boyhood was full of adventures, his young manhood experienced the lumberman's life and at age twenty he discovered the way he was to live the next sixty-seven years of his life, a circuit rider in Canada, a minister in the United States and a man of strong religious conviction. Flames of the Past offers the reader a wonderful variety of poems from religious to humorous filled with the hardships and fun of pioneer days, the adventures of logging and the life of a circuit rider during the 1800's in Canada. Mrs. Anderson, who enjoyed the fun and excitement of growing up in the 40's and 50's, feels that she was very fortunate in having a father who could share his adventures of growing up as a pioneer and wanted to share this with her readers.

Canastota Fire Department Haunted House

Canastota Pole Barn (across from Zems Ice Cream) on the corner of South Main and Hickory Street

The family that kills together has survived yet again. Pushed from their home filled with stocked freezers, they've come back with a vengeance not to let it happen again. No longer are they hiding in the woods, instead the nomadic nature of these blood lusting fiends has settled down in this historical site once known as the main place of employment for this town. Abandoned with the turn of modernization, the building famous for its saw mill left behind plenty of room for wanton terrorization of those wandering in for a peek at history. The family is hungry and it's almost feasting time. Prices: Adult tickets: $10.00 each attraction per person $15.00 for both attractions per person $5.00 for re-entry per attraction Child tickets (12 and under): $6.00 each attraction per person $10.00 for both attractions per person $3.00 for re-entry per attraction $2.00 off any ticket with a canned food donation that will be donated to the Canastota Opportunity Shop.

All retired and active military members are invited to attend this inaugural picnic, along with all community members. Dan Enea, owner of Daniel J. Enea Funeral and Cremation Care on Route 5 in Herkimer, is the event coordinator/planner. He says, “It has always been my goal to have a casual setting where we could honor and learn the importance of our veterans. The event will be laid back and simply an opportunity for everyone to talk with the veterans while at the same time offering our gratitude along with hearing about their experience serving in the military." Enea feels that the time has come to celebrate our area veterans as a whole for our freedom. This family friendly event will include free food, drink, and games for children along with other entertainment with no admission charge. One of the event highlights will be John Seymour (involved in the Herkimer shooting tragedy), who will offer patriotic music. Please RSVP to Dan Enea at (315) 508-5250 or info@eneacares.com. You may also contact Laura Powers, co-coordinator, at (315) 868-0233 or laura7ellen@gmail.com for additional information.

Finger Lakes Mud Run

Everest Park, 5342 North Rd, Auburn, NY 13021

The Finger Lakes Mud Run at Everest Park is a challenging, military-style trail run that’s intended to pit participants against one of THREE EXTREME COURSES. Yes, THREE! Each wave of participants joins a stampede of literally hundreds who’ll trudge through thick field grasses, over wooded underbrush, down and out of deep gullies, and ultimately face jaw-dropping obstacles––each designed to encourage teamwork and camaraderie. The Finger Lakes Mud Run has THREE courses in 2014! Our first is the 5K short course, which is designed for those who’re looking for a fun challenge, but aren’t quite ready for the big time! Our second course is the 14K long course that explores over 750 acres of dense forest, sun-baked fields, and terrain that even scares the wildlife! Our third course, introduced in 2013, is the ever-popular Mini Muddy. This course lets kids ages 6-12 get completely covered in mud, just like the rest of the family! The Finger Lakes Mud Run remains a volunteer-organized event that uses 100% of its net proceeds to extend the mission of Everest Park by offering a restful retreat for families of children who are experiencing life-altering health issues.

Our community welcomes new members and draws on many religious sources, welcoming people with different beliefs. We are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma. Unitarian Universalism combines two traditions: the Universalists, who organized in 1793, and the Unitarians, who organized in 1825. They consolidated into the Unitarian Universalist Association in 1961. (Taken from http://www.uua.org/ ) Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that embraces theological diversity; we welcome different beliefs and affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Working for justice in our world is a principal way for Unitarian Universalists to express their faith. Unitarian Universalists have a rich religious community withSunday and holiday services and life passage celebrations.

Canastota Fire Department Haunted House

Canastota Pole Barn (across from Zems Ice Cream) on the corner of South Main and Hickory Street

The family that kills together has survived yet again. Pushed from their home filled with stocked freezers, they've come back with a vengeance not to let it happen again. No longer are they hiding in the woods, instead the nomadic nature of these blood lusting fiends has settled down in this historical site once known as the main place of employment for this town. Abandoned with the turn of modernization, the building famous for its saw mill left behind plenty of room for wanton terrorization of those wandering in for a peek at history. The family is hungry and it's almost feasting time. Prices: Adult tickets: $10.00 each attraction per person $15.00 for both attractions per person $5.00 for re-entry per attraction Child tickets (12 and under): $6.00 each attraction per person $10.00 for both attractions per person $3.00 for re-entry per attraction $2.00 off any ticket with a canned food donation that will be donated to the Canastota Opportunity Shop.

Canastota Fire Department Haunted House

Canastota Pole Barn (across from Zems Ice Cream) on the corner of South Main and Hickory Street

The family that kills together has survived yet again. Pushed from their home filled with stocked freezers, they've come back with a vengeance not to let it happen again. No longer are they hiding in the woods, instead the nomadic nature of these blood lusting fiends has settled down in this historical site once known as the main place of employment for this town. Abandoned with the turn of modernization, the building famous for its saw mill left behind plenty of room for wanton terrorization of those wandering in for a peek at history. The family is hungry and it's almost feasting time. Prices: Adult tickets: $10.00 each attraction per person $15.00 for both attractions per person $5.00 for re-entry per attraction Child tickets (12 and under): $6.00 each attraction per person $10.00 for both attractions per person $3.00 for re-entry per attraction $2.00 off any ticket with a canned food donation that will be donated to the Canastota Opportunity Shop.

The family is hungry and it's almost feasting time. Prices: Adult tickets: $10.00 each attraction per person $15.00 for both attractions per person $5.00 for re-entry per attraction Child tickets (12 and under): $6.00 each attraction per person $10.00 for both attractions per person $3.00 for re-entry per attraction $2.00 off any ticket with a canned food donation that will be donated to the Canastota Opportunity Shop.

Canastota Fire Department Haunted House

Canastota Pole Barn (across from Zems Ice Cream) on the corner of South Main and Hickory Street

The family that kills together has survived yet again. Pushed from their home filled with stocked freezers, they've come back with a vengeance not to let it happen again. No longer are they hiding in the woods, instead the nomadic nature of these blood lusting fiends has settled down in this historical site once known as the main place of employment for this town. Abandoned with the turn of modernization, the building famous for its saw mill left behind plenty of room for wanton terrorization of those wandering in for a peek at history. The family is hungry and it's almost feasting time. Prices: Adult tickets: $10.00 each attraction per person $15.00 for both attractions per person $5.00 for re-entry per attraction Child tickets (12 and under): $6.00 each attraction per person $10.00 for both attractions per person $3.00 for re-entry per attraction $2.00 off any ticket with a canned food donation that will be donated to the Canastota Opportunity Shop.
