  • Springwater Party Line: Blood drive Monday; hikes continue

  • Monday, Jan. 30, the Springwater Legion will host the Community Blood Drive from 2-7 p.m. All blood types are needed and the Post 905 Grill will be open if you care to stay for lunch or dinner. The weekday was chosen because so many of our donors requested it, so please take advantage of the extended hours and give the gift of life.

    This Thursday evening, Jan. 26, we are hoping you have the opportunity to come to the Spaghetti Dinner and Bluegrass Jam at the Webster’s Crossing Church on Route 15 between Springwater and Conesus. Although the crew for making the dinner and cleaning up afterwards is going to be short on people, everyone in the community will rise to the occasion. As June Perkins would say, “We will do with what we have!”
    You recall that last week I urged you to attend the meeting on the plan for hiking trails around the entire town compiled by the Springwater Parks and Trails Committee. The presentation by Chuck Winship of Sugarbush Hollow and the rest of the Committee made up of Howie Harris, Pati Clark, Dean Faklis, Ellen Folts, Carole Koss, Bob Radell and Wendy Stevenson was followed by a question and answer period. Please pick up a copy of the 14-page Town of Springwater Parks and Trails Plan, the result of a year and a half of hard work.
    Last Sunday, the Springwater Hiking Group travelled to Canandaigua. Fourteen participants walked the level path, parts of which were the old rail bed of the Canandaigua trolley cars. Deena Munsell organized the hike and the place of the social afterwards. Next week the group will return to Springwater for a hike near Schribner (often misspelled) Road, ending with a social at the Hopkin’s House.
    We have prayers in for Barbara Babbit, Lee Babbit’s wife, who broke her ankle and will be laid up for at least four weeks. She is home.
    Don’t miss the program “Springwater Inspirations, A SUNY Geneseo Student Project,” being hosted by the Springwater–Websters Crossing Historical Society on Tuesday, Feb. 7, at the Springwater Fire Hall in anticipation of many Springwater residents attending. Bring a dish and join the Historical Society members for the dish-to-pass dinner at 6:30 p.m. and program at 7:15 p.m.

    Amie Alden, county historian, notified us this week that the Porter Pastels have been moved from the Lockhart Gallery in Geneseo to the Livingston Arts Center Gallery at the Genesee Valley Council on the Arts located next to the County Historian’s Office on Murray Hill in Mt. Morris.
    This exhibition of 12 historic sites related to the Revolutionary War, including the Groveland Ambuscade and Boyd and Parker Memorial, is a stunning display. So if you missed the premier last fall, now is your chance to see these works before they leave the area. The exhibit will run until March 3.
    The Ladies Auxiliary Unit of Springwater American Legion Post 905 will hold their annual Valentine’s Day dinner on Saturday, Feb. 11, at the Springwater Post. Tickets are $20 per person and include dinner of Prime Rib with all the trimmings and dessert. All proceeds go to benefit the Girls State program. Tickets can be obtained by calling or visiting the Post, 585-669-2300 or the chairman, Carol Tripp 585-669-2582. Tickets must be purchased by Feb. 3. No tickets will be sold at the door.

    Many events are already on the calendar for the Springwater Post. Come watch the Super Bowl on big screen TVs and bring your friends. The Post 905 Grill will be open for those who care to eat and watch the game.
    A firm date has not been received for the annual Springwater American Legion ham and chocolate raffle prior to Easter, but I should have more information in the next two weeks.
    The Springwater Rod & Gun Club will also host its annual Pickrell Dinner on Saturday, Feb. 11. More information to come on this event.
    Despite the up and down winter weather, there is much to look forward to in the weeks ahead, so mark your calendars, and plan on getting out of the house.
    Have a great week.
