This reminds me to tell you about the old-fashioned Ice Cream Social and Music Jam to be held outside the  UMC on Sunday, June 6 starting at noon. The church is on Route 15 just three miles north of Springwater.  It will be inside if the weather is not conducive for this to be held outside.
Thank you to everyone that participated in the Rummage Sale at Websters Crossing May 21 and 22. Your patronage and hard work are much appreciated.
The Springwater - Websters Crossing Historical Society meeting June 8 program will be “The Flying Allens” – pioneering balloon performers from Dansville by Tom Roffe, Leicester Town Historian.  Mark your calendar now for 6:30 dish-to-pass dinner and 7:15 p.m. program.

Soon the flags will be hung by Legion members on the main thoroughfares of Springwater and Websters Crossing, and the graves of our veterans will bear flags reminding us of their valor and sacrifices. Memorial Day is the one day each year set aside for reflection on the lives of our veterans and the sacrifices they made to keep America free from tyranny. We invite all of our residents and visitors to follow the Springwater American Legion family on Memorial Day as they visit the cemeteries in our town and pay tribute to our veterans. Schedules of the visitations are available at the Legion, posted in the Post Office, at the Town Clerk’s Office, and at the store.
The Springwater Church of the Nazarene will offer a special program Sunday, May 30, at 10:45 a.m. The choir will present a Patriotic Musical narrated by Lee Richey with a presentation and commentary by Darrell Westurn on the several incarnations of our country’s flag. Flags from the time of Betsy Ross to today will be displayed from Darrell’s collection. Military personnel, scouts, firemen and police officers are encouraged to wear their uniforms to this event.
Springwater has nine cemeteries where more than 700 veterans are buried. Many of these veterans no longer have descendants living in this area, and some of the graves are in real shambles. Two of the cemeteries that are now in the town’s hands do not get regular maintenance. If you visit one of our cemeteries, take a few minutes to read the inscriptions on some of the stones. It is a real history lesson and the stones speak volumes about the family ties to this region.
Today, the Springwater Church of the Nazarene will host a Senior Luncheon at noon. Peter Lutz and Dave Hardy of the musical group "The Power Co." will provide the music. All seniors are welcome to attend. A donation is requested, the food is always excellent, and the church will offer a cool respite during this week’s pre-summer heat wave.
Many people are now reading the Genesee Country Express online (dansvilleonline.com) and I have heard only positive comments.
 Have a great week and remember to check in on our senior neighbors. Many do not have air conditioning and do not realize they are overheated or dehydrated.
