These should not go unrecognized. Cooperstown schools are very fortunate to have so many dedicated volunteers and generous residents who keep their respective school-related organizations active and productive.

A full array of activities and events they sponsored over the past year for students and residents was truly impressive. New audio equipment, summer music camp scholarships, after school tutoring, guest writers and performers, sponsorship of clubs and the CCS Quiz Team, Kid Garden, a new Entrepreneur Club, concession stands for sports events, the annual All Sports Banquet, and Cabaret Night are examples from a list otherwise too long to include here.

These groups bring enrichment to students through enhancements for basic academics, support of art and music activities, and extracurricular opportunities. And all are done through the spark of volunteerism and donations form people and businesses in our community.

The time, effort, and enthusiasm, shown as their works were described to the Board were clearly grounded in a love and concern for children in our schools. We, the educators, along with parents and students, owe a great deal of admiration and thanks to the volunteers and organizations that serve our school community. Lastly, we heartily endorse any help from new volunteers or money contributions as a way for anyone to become a part of a rewarding educational experience.

I’m voting for Jeff Jeff Katz is my choice to provide the team leadership for the Village of Cooperstown as we continue to creatively confront the challenges faced by communities across the country. The special flavor of the Village, so deeply treasured by its residents, provides its own unique agenda to maintain it aesthetically, recreationally and financially.

We read, hear and witness a great deal about our eroding infrastructureàthe melding of our residential life among thousands of visitorsà the relatively small tax baseà our architectural charm and how to preserve its integrity in a manner that’s fair and the list goes on and on.
