The Seneca Falls American Legion Post 366 invites you to join in the Commander's Can Jam.

It has been brought to our attention that cans of soup & other canned items are difficult to keep stocked at the House of Concern's food pantry and with the colder weather approaching, we want to HELP!

Through the month of October, Kirk-Casey Post 366 will be collecting canned goods that will be donated to the House of Concern's Food Pantry.  Each canned good donated gets your name entered into the drawing for a gift certificate to a local establishment.  Each can of soup, gets 2 entries.

Let's show our community how much we care & help stock those shelves.

Please feel free to contact Julie Scott, Commander with any questions, comments, or concerns @ 315-568-8091.  The Post is located at 48 State Street, Seneca Falls.

Fall Foliage Tour Map
1:00 AM - 1:00 AM
Canandaigua, NY - The Ontario County Historical Society's new fundraiser shows off the best that October has to offer - fall colors at their peak in the Bristol Hills. Maps are available starting next week for this month-long October event.
The southern Ontario County towns of Bristol, South Bristol and Naples are known for their autumn beauty. The Fall Foliage Trail map takes guests through these towns, their villages and hamlets and provides historical stops and local shops to visit and the best places to take photos of the fall scenery.
Discover the quaintness of Bristol Springs and stop at the Arbor Hill Winery or have lunch at the Brown Hound Bistro. Explore local history at stops like South Bristol Historical Society's Grange building. In Naples, visit Monica's Pies, Inspire Moore Winery or Neapolitan Pizza to enter a raffle to win great prizes. At the Reservoir Creek Golf Course enter the raffle to win free rounds of golf. Each map is good for the entire month of October, so come back again.
Community Day, October 17, will be a memorable day with access to
special tours at select stops shown on the Trail Map. Eight behind-the-scenes tours will be offered at historical places like the Bristol Valley Theater, Burning Springs archaeological dig and Naples Historical Society Museum.
Bring the camera! Eighteen "photo ops" marked on the Fall Foliage Trail map offer great places for photos, along curving country roads, in historic cemeteries, at scenic overlooks and with historic buildings. A photo contest, sponsored by the Ontario County Arts Council, offers $300 for the best photo, along with several other cash prizes. Entries for up to 3 photos are $25 for adults over 18 and free for youth shutterbugs. For more information on the contest and its rules, visit www.ochs.org.
A $20 donation to the Ontario County Historical Museum earns a map, an information folder and four wristbands for access to the October 17 Community Days activities. The map packets will be available starting September 8 at several locations in the region, including the Ontario County Historical Museum located at 55 North Main Street in Canandaigua, selected Canandaigua National Bank and Trust main and branch offices, The Geneva Historical Society, Arbor Hill Winery, the Canandaigua Chamber of Commerce, The Naples Library and online at www.ochs.org.

Autumn is here and with it comes an abundance of fresh, crisp, local apples. Apples are one of the most versatile foods around. They can be used in sweet and savory dishes, eaten raw, dried, sauced, candied and covered in caramel. Did you know that you can also turn them into jams and relishes to be enjoyed later? Hope Galens, Local Food Educator with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ontario County will be holding two canning classes that incorporate local apples. The two canning classes will both be hands-on and are suitable for those who have never canned before. Not only do these taste delicious, they also make great gifts for the upcoming holidays. Participants will leave with their own jar of either jam or relish.

Cost is $15.00 per person. Pre-registration is required one week before the class by calling Nancy at 585-394-3977 x 427 or email nea8@cornell.edu with your name, address, and phone number.
