The village is top priority for Katz

I met Jeff when he knocked on our door when first running for Trustee. Since then, I have appeared before him as a Trustee regarding various Village projects multiple times. I have worked with him specifically on my volunteer duties for the Village while he has been Deputy Mayor. I have also worked with him on volunteer projects for the Cooperstown Rotary Club. It is very clear that the Village is his first priority, with a desire to be fair with everyone. I truly believe he will make a fine Mayor.

Thanks for support Our first Annual TREP$ Marketplace was a success! I couldn’t believe my eyes! The students displayed their products and services in creative and unique ways _ well done young TREP$! We overhead so many positive comments around the room and were encouraged by the support and encouragement from the parents and community.

I want to give a special thank you to Mrs. Rebecca Stone, Workshop Facilitator, Erika Idelson and Kathleen Gozigian, Publicity Chairpersons, Annmarie Bascio & Martha Heneghan, Marketplace Coordinators. This innovative program could not have been implemented without their hard work and dedication. I thank them for believing in the TREP$ program and in our students.

Also, I would like to thank our sponsors that allowed us to purchase the program and all related materials: Otsego Economic Development, Farm Credit East, Rotary Club of Cooperstown, Lions Club of Cooperstown, Leatherstocking Credit Union, Bank of Cooperstown, Cooperstown Foundation for Excellence in Education (CFEE), NYSHA, and the National Baseball Hall of Fame and a generous anonymous donor. Thank you also to the Cooperstown PTO, the Cooperstown Board of Education, Mike Cring , Mary Jo McPhail, Carol Waller, Mark LaValley, Bennett and the custodial staff of the Cooperstown Middle/High School.

  • Our Readers' Opinions After living in the western southern tier for 10 years, my wife and I decided to visit the Hall of Fame today, June 20, before moving out of the area in a few weeks. We enjoyed the museum, but parking in Cooperstown proved to be a formidable gauntlet.
