JC Rotary Carousel Day
New Benches for CFJ Park
The Johnson City Partners were able to place three new benches at CFJ Park thanks to Williams!
The Williams “Homegrown Giving” Grant was recently awarded to our organization. The benches are a great addition to the quarter mile walkway that encircles the park and our magnificent antique carousel.
Thank you Williams for investing in our community!
The Johnson City Partners held a clean-up on May 23rd in preparation for the Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony at the Veterans Memorial Park Gazebo.
Members picked litter along Main Street and weeded at the park.
NBT Bank recently placed planters along Main Street, which they adopted form the Johnson City Partners. They did a lovely job in painting the planters to match the banks exterior.
Volunteers make a difference at CFJ park
I want to thank the many volunteers who have made a difference at CFJ Park.
Joe Ryan, Barbara Thompson, Gail Wadin and Maryann Massar brought the perennial flower bed back to life in a beautiful way this past summer. These volunteers toiled on several occasions and did an outstanding job.
It takes many volunteers to pull off a successful Carousel Day event. Volunteers helped set-up, work at the event, and clean it all up afterward. It was these dedicated volunteers along with officers Marcia Ward, Donna Converse, and Corinna Johnson, and members Barb Thompson and Don McPartland that made the July 25th Carousel Day an enjoyable day for all who attended. Thank you for all you do.
After working this past winter with a group from the Cornell Co-operative Extension, we are excited to soon be unveiling our CFJ Park Beautification Project. Funding for this project comes, in part, from the proceeds of Carousel Day. Thank you to our sponsors: Wegmans, Visions, Coughlin & Gerhart, Goodrich Implement, J.F. Rice Funeral Home, Haylor, Freyer & Coon, Marchuska Glass, and Bates Troy. The beautification project will include much needed shade trees and attractive park signage.
To become involved please reach out to us through this sites contact page or by personally speaking with any of our members.
