Finger Lakes Marine Service celebrated its 65th birthday August 7th.  The Marina opened in the early '50s, five years before Myers Park was established.  The event attracted about 50 people who brought a dish-to-pass.  The marina supplied the sodas and seven local wineries conducted tastings throughout the afternoon. 

"It was a lot of fun. It was old timers," says owner Barry Ford. "There was a man here who has had boats in the marina 37 years, and another who has been here 42 years.  They've seen the transformation."

Diners arriving for a free meal at Loaves & Fishes of Tompkins County in downtown Ithaca this summer have been greeted with a welcome surprise — air-conditioning. For the first time in its 36-year history, the soup kitchen in the social hall of St. John's Episcopal Church has been air-conditioned this summer. The cool air was not only a relief for patrons but also for the volunteers who prepare 140 lunches or dinners each day.

"It has proven to be a godsend during the recent heat," said Rev. Megan Castellan, the rector at St. John's. "The air-conditioning has allowed each guest to cool down, eat and feel like a different person."

September will be here before we know it, and that means back to school! School supplies, new clothes, and immunizations! School immunizations are important. They protect children from disease and from exposing those who are vulnerable and cannot be immunized.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) developed a scientifically researched immunization schedule that indicates the spacing between doses of vaccines. Delayed vaccination schedules are not permitted under these guidelines. New York State (NYS) follows these national guidelines for vaccine spacing. A full schedule can be found here: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/hcp/imz/child-adolescent.html
