Many thanks go to all the volunteers who baked desserts, worked in the kitchen to prepare and serve food, washed dishes, and helped take down decorations and clean up. A special thanks to the Leo Club student volunteers coordinated by David Pearlman and Paul Weber. The hard working Leo Club made it possible for us to bring back real plates and silverware this year, saving costs and the environment.
My final expression of gratitude goes to the FOMA members who meet monthly and worked hard to make Cabaret Night a success again this year: Teresa Drerup, Dina Sams, Roberta and tom Hohensee, John Saphier, Janet Rigby, Mike Bauer, patty Murphy, Liane Hirabayashi, Dorothy Tang, Leslie Boyles, Grace Olmstead, and especially Annie Stewart, who has been patiently showing me how to do the Job! And of course to all the folks who came, supported, and had fun!

Mebust has my support
Lynne Mebust, my friend, neighbor and our committed Village Trustee, has my support and needs yours for the upcoming election on March 16. Lynne’s representation of Cooperstown residents during the last three years on the Streets and Building Committee, the Parks Board and the Police Committee brought about positive change for our community. Her tenure has resulted in improvements at our Badger Park ice skating rink and increased revenue for the village through paid parking.
Lynne’s professional background of grant writing and non-profit management brings an acute understanding of focused research skills and team leadership. Some of her many community contributions include a threeyear term as PTO treasurer and Crayon Carnival chair with her work benefiting our elementary school and students.
With a commonsense approach to problems garnered from past and present work experiences, Lynne remains on task with issues presented before her resulting in thoughtful and responsible outcomes.
