The Friends of the Williamson Free Public Library and the Library Board of Trustees are pleased to announce the 2011 Firefly Concerts Series line-up as follows: 
  • July 6 – Rochester Brass & Electric - Funk, soul, swing, R&B, and good old rock and roll

  • July 20 – Bonnie and Collide - Hard-driving blues with a great female vocalist
  • July 27 – Paulsen, Baker & Garvey - Three guys who make great music… and really corny jokes!
Jim Hoffman
This popular outdoor concert series takes place on Wednesday evenings in July at 7 p.m. at the Patio Stage on the front lawn of the library, rain or shine. The library is located at 6380 State Route 21 in the Town of Williamson Complex.
It’s a great way to spend an evening - enjoying the music and the company of friends. Bring your lawn chair, an umbrella if Mother Nature does not cooperate… and join the fun!

I had the pleasure of attending the Williamson Volunteer Ambulance Service (WVAS) 40th Annual Banquet this month. Congratulations go to Dave Kreutzer as he was selected as the 2010 Williamson Volunteer Ambulance Service member of the year.

Despite the wet and cold weather the 52nd Williamson Apple Blossom Festival was well attended and a good time was had by all! Good news – the 3rd Annual Car and Bike show which was cancelled on Sunday, the last day of the Festival, has been rescheduled for Saturday, June 11th from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. It will take place in the parking lot behind Breen’s. Registration is from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. – judging is at noon.

The 2011 Williamson Apple Blossom Festival Committee worked hard this past year to make the Festival happen. Thanks go to Cindy Smith - President, Randy Dibble - Vice President; Cathy DeMay – Secretary, Lynn Paschke – Treasurer and committee members Lindsay Hoesterey, Dawn Stanton, Ravone Burnell, Ajaleah Bobowski, Colleen McCarty, Tracy Cole and Bonnie Kohner.

Town Clerk, Marlene Gulick, now has a drop-down menu on the homepage of the Town of Williamson website (http://town.williamson.ny.us) at which you can download forms frequently requested from the Town Clerk’s Office. Eleven (11) forms can now be downloaded for birth & death records, parking permits, certification of residence, fireworks applications, marriage records, genealogical research, permit requirements for fireworks, service complaint forms, handicap parking permit applications and FOIL (Freedom of Information Law) requests. If you have any suggestions for additional forms to be included in the drop-down menu please contact Marlene Gulick at 589-8100 extension #3.

The Williamson Park Committee started building a shelter lodge at the Williamson Town Park two years ago. When completed, the building will consist of a meeting room, a kitchen and two bathrooms. It will be approximately 2048 square feet and hold approximately 100 people. Its anticipated cost is approximately $200,000. However, funding for the building will come from grant money, the annual park budget, volunteers, donations and the town workforce. Volunteers who wish assist with this project are welcome. Please contact George Harland at 585-732-0298 or Ed Merriett at 589-9791 for more information if you are interested.

The lodge is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2011. Having a lodge changes the park from a seasonal to a year-round park, allowing for indoor activities and providing shelter for children in the summer programs in case of inclement weather. The lodge will be used for meetings, parties, weddings and other gatherings year round.
