At Websters Crossing Church, the month of June will be filled with activities that everyone should know about.


The steps in front of the church have been replaced by Lawrence Sigwald of Conesus, who is donating his time, equipment and talents. The new steps are of pressure treated lumber, stringers and risers. When facing the church, the left side is already covered with cultured stone. Still to be completed are the right sidewall, the hand rails and newel posts. Many thanks are extended to all who are volunteering to help.


The musical group Final Harvest is coming on June 12 to sing at the 9 a.m. service at Websters Crossing UMC. Final Harvest is a women’s singing group that is one you will not want to miss.


June 19 is Father’s Day, Graduation Sunday and Pastor Jeri Kober’s last day to present her wonderful sermons at Websters Crossing UMC — completing seven years. She will be the new pastor at East Bloomfield UMC starting July 1.


Following the 9 a.m. service, everyone is invited to Pastor Jeri’s graduation party that will include a dish-to-pass Sunday brunch featuring ham and roast beef. Come out to say goodbye and share your idea for something Pastor Jeri had to pass to “graduate” to a larger congregation. The order of the day will be reminiscing highlights of the last seven years.


Last but not least, June 23 is the Spaghetti Dinner and Music Jam, 4:30–7 p.m. at Websters Crossing. We thank all who are participating, especially the core team of Joice Kelley Biek, Andy Wester, Sylvia Pifer and Anna Pifer Kline who have contributed to making everything run smoother.


The hike Sunday, May 29, at the Bristol Branch of the Finger Lakes Trail at High Tor was a repeat of the routes we saw covered with snow and ice back on Jan. 23. This time the trees are covered with leaves and the forest floor is green with wild flowers and plants. Granddaughter Isabel Scheiderich and I enjoyed hiking with the small group that came out. At the beginning of the hike, Pam Masterson handed out the tentative summer schedule that includes kayaking. She also gave out post cards announcing the Finger Lakes Museum schedule for “Back from the Brink: The Story of Hemlock and Canadice Lakes” program at Rochester Museum and Science Center in June, Keuka College in July and Finger Lakes Wine Center in Ithaca. The next hike is Sunday, June 5, at the Canadice Outlet to explore Old Dixon Hollow and surrounding areas begins at 2 p.m. sharp and usually ends at 4:30 p.m. followed by an optional after hike social. New hikers are always welcome and can join up on any hike. For more information, please go to the Town of Springwater website, www.townofspringwaterny.org, which is the home of the Town’s Parks and Recreation site. Be sure to check out the “Calendars” page and click on the date to find out the details of any hike you are interested in attending. New people are always welcome!


The long awaited Springwater–Webster’s Crossing Historical Society cookbooks are out. Obtain your copy of “A Treasury of Springwater Recipes” from any board member or at the Springwater Gala exhibit in the park or at the museum on Main Street during the Gala on June 11–12.

The Springwater UMC notified us this week that they gave a wrong date for the free clothing giveaway. It is scheduled for 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. Saturday, June 11, at the church. Clothing of all sizes for men, women and children will be available. The church is located at 8002 S. Main St., Springwater. Anyone with a need for clothing items is welcome.


The Springwater Community Blood Drive is scheduled for 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. Saturday, June 4, at the Springwater American Legion. This region is low on all blood types particularly O-negative and B-negative, and we are putting out a call for all double-red donors who have not donated in the past four months to come out for this critical blood drive. We will have two double red machines available. During the summer, many regular donors take vacations, go to summer residences, or are so involved in family and work they overlook opportunities to donate blood. Accidents with injuries requiring blood transfusions occur frequently during the summer and the Blood Bank must keep up with the increased demand. If you need an appointment, call 585-335-3500 or my home at 585-669-2683. Please bring your identification with you.


Springwater lost one of her native sons this weekend. Leo D. Colegrove, son of the late Lloyd and Blanche Colegrove died over the weekend. Mr. Colegrove was the oldest member of the Springwater American Legion Post 905. He grew up in a time when small boys wore dresses before they graduated to short pants, and despite living more than nine decades was very independent until last year. He was a true gentleman from the old school and his presence will be sorely missed at the Senior Christmas Luncheon. Services are pending.


Condolences are also extended to Randy and Jennifer Willard and the eight Willard children in the loss of their beloved maternal grandmother, Kathleen Ann Bailey, 60, in Bloomfield on May 22. Services were Thursday at the Kevin W. Dougherty Funeral Home, Inc. Memorial contributions to Diabetes Association, 160 Allens Creek Rd. Building 160, Rochester, NY 14618.


Have a great week!
