Fall is both a fun and beautiful season. Not only do we get to appreciate all of the colorful foliage, we also get to enjoy apple cider, donuts, bonfires, festivals, and all of the other fun festivities that come along with this season. 

Looking back we have seen Town Board recognitions of new business openings, the Glimpses of Greece Photo Contest submissions, new services at the Greece Town Court, and a shredding event. Coming up, be sure to mark your calendars for our annual Family Halloween Party! 

During September’s Town Board Meeting, we recognized Greece resident Niayah Blair for being the first woman to complete the Monroe Manufactures Job Program. She is also the first woman mold making apprentice at Romold, Inc. and in the entire state of New York! We also presented a proclamation and medal to Dylan Austin in celebration of his recent achievement of Eagle Scout ranking. In order to attain this, Dylan coordinated efforts to clean up and landscape an area of Holy Sepulchre Cemetery. 

This past month we hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for Family First Credit Union, which is the first branch located on the West side of Monroe County. Coming up, we have several new business ribbon cuttings scheduled. Keep an eye out for all of the new businesses in town! 

The Greece Public Library recently held the 4th annual Glimpses of Greece photo contest. This popular photo contest sees participation from both youths and adults. Photos are judged by the age of the submitter and by different categories, such as Autumn Beauty of Greece and Unique Architecture of Greece. All of the winning photographs will be displayed in the Glimpses of Greece Calendar. 

One of the many new services we have brought to the Town of Greece this summer is nCourt. nCourt is currently being implemented in our Greece Town Courts and will allow defendants to make payments online at www.paycourtonline.com or by calling a toll free number (1-888-912- 1541). This new payment process provides a convenient service both to our residents and to out- of-town ticket holders. 

Our 2nd shredding event of the year was held this past month. Hundreds flocked to the Greece Town Hall Campus to take advantage of the free shredding service we offered. It can be very expensive to have a shredding service come to a resident home, so we were glad to be able to provide this service for our residents free of charge! 

As always, I enjoy hearing feedback from residents about programming and other town related matters. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact my office or visit our website. 

Be sure to mark your calendars for our annual Family Halloween Party! This event is for Greece residents only and will be held Friday, October 26th from 6pm – 8pm. Call the Community Center at 723-2425 for more information.
