Mayor Vicky Daly, Palmyra
Conversation with the Mayor

As I write this the rain continues to fall. It is my sincere hope that as you read it the sun is shining and the mud has dried up. Rain is certainly a necessity, but as with anything, moderation is nice . An exceedingly rainy spring following a very long winter requires fortitude and a belief that this too shall pass. In the meantime, enjoy our beautiful flowering trees. Summer is coming –and it is going to be a good one. Have faith and hold that thought.

The village has already shifted into summer mode. The ‘through the winter’ events – Fire Department Pancake Breakfasts, Legion steak dinners and the like, have been replaced by the almost-every- weekend chicken BBQs at Breen’s and in East Palmyra. Events are scheduled in the park, at the marina, the library, the Community Center, and, of course, at Historic Palmyra. The schedule for the next few weeks includes everything from a LEGO party at the library to Heritage Weekend at the HP museums. New and very appropriate is the celebration of Armed Forces Day, May 21 – 22, at the Wayne County Fairgrounds. Sponsored by the American Legion, the event includes a parade, color guard demonstrations, a 5K race, and fireworks. Just one week later is Memorial Day and the unofficial start of summer, which, I reiterate is going to be a good one. (Think positive.) A full listing of events is on the Palmyra website, www.palmyrany.com If you have an event coming up let us know at 597-4849 or drop it off and we will see that it is added. For your own sake, get the information to the Village Office with sufficient lead time. Letting us know on Friday about an event scheduled for that weekend doesn’t serve anyone well.

Last time round I was venting about questions, rumors and misinformation. Being somewhat of a Pollyanna, my policy is to think the best of someone unless or until I have reason to do otherwise. In that light, my assumption was that people take responsibility for the information they provide and are open to verifiable factual information contrary to what they believed to be the truth. That is clearly not the case if misinformation is provided anonymously. If there are serious questions or concerns on a matter they cannot be addressed and corrected unless a dialogue takes place. A dialogue takes two people. Until that happens, anonymous letters received in the Village Hall will be consigned to the recycling bin. Research (we do that a lot) indicates that is also the case in the Town Hall.
