PTA says thanks
The Cooperstown PTA would like to thank the Cooperstown community for supporting our recent Holiday Breakfast held Saturday, Dec. 1. We owe a sincere thank you to all those who made the event possible: school faculty for breakfast items, band director Peter Daum, the tireless kitchen and custodial staff, Santa and Mrs. Claus, the Leo Club and Boys Scouts for providing volunteers, the vendors who participated in the Marketplace, the Silent Auction donors and local businesses for their continued support, Stagecoach for providing coffee and a holding container, Mark Davine for breakfast supplies, Price Chopper and the countless parent and student volunteers who made this year a success.
The PTA would also like to recognize the efforts of Jennifer Stalzer, who organized our Marketplace, Tabetha Rathbone and Melanie Boyer who organized the fabulous Silent Auction, Joanne Crowson and Julie Cring for organizing the kitchen and cafeteria staff, and Cari Lifgren for organizing the book fair.
We wish all Cooperstown students and families a safe and healthy holiday season and look forward to Crayon Carnival coming up next year on Saturday, March 16, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the MS/HS gymnasium.
Former trustee against
I have been on the village board and read the minutes from the first paid parking proposal public meeting. I then participated in another one. I took the time to talk to business owners and others in the village and heard the opinions, before reversing the law of paid parking on Main Street. I have not been approached by a single trustee, nor has any other business owner that I have talked to. I am not sure what has changed since the last vote, but from what I have heard, opinions have not changed.
