OPeration Auburn

What is Operation Auburn?

It is becoming ever clearer that people are the key to the future of our city. By participating in this outreach, you are assisting not only the City of Auburn, but the residents that make up our community in getting the attention of people in your life who would like to take advantage of opportunities at home.

Affordable homes, highly regarded schools, educated workforce, life in Auburn is REAL. SMART. EASY. 

Did you catch the August 2005 issue of Outside Magazine? Auburn made it on the list of eight honorable mentions for BEST PLACE TO LIVE.

“This trout-fishing haven of 28,000 near upstate New York’s Lake Owasco is staging a RENEWABLE ENERGY revolution. In 2003 the City retrofitted its 75-year old municipal building with a geothermal heating system designed to cut CO2 emissions by 58%.”

Smart solutions growing smart companies.

The heating and cooling units that made this system possible were designed and built at the McQuay facility on Tech Park Blvd. These Water Source Heat Pumps that are used in geothermal installations now account for 30% of the product sales that come out of the McQuay facility in Auburn.

Cost of living here is easy to take.

The 2000 census reported that our median family income was 90% of the national average at $44,973. Keep in mind that the average cost of a single family home in 2000 was $75,000 and the average cost of a home nation wide was $150,000. Average families in Auburn have 40% more disposal income that other average Americans.

Real neighborhoods supporting families.

Remember our community assets; a local daily newspaper, local radio stations, museums, community college, libraries, community and civic organizations, churches and strong local support for social services through the United Way, low crime rate, walkable neighborhoods, proximity to larger urban areas four seasons, great water and no or little commute. Auburn is one of those best places where everything comes together – challenging work, a built-for-the future workforce, and a way of life that is so real, you just can not beat it.

Auburn, New York, where it all comes together for a work-life balance that is

Bang Bang You’re Dead 

“Bang Bang You’re Dead”

Start: 05/03/2007 – 8:00pm
End: 05/12/2007 – 8:00pm

Jazz Central
441 East Washington Street
Syracuse, NY
See map: Google Maps
Rarely Done Productions and the Syracuse Children’s Theatre are producing a play promoting dialogue about anti-violence/anti-bullying by William Mastrosimone called “Bang Bang You’re Dead.”

The dates for the play are as follows: May 3rd, 4th, 5th, 10th, 11th and 12th at Jazz Central in downtown Syracuse (441 East Washington Street). All shws are at 8pm.

“Bang Bang You’re Dead” is FREE to the public.

Directed by Dan Tursi, this powerful, moving, and inspiring production aims to show the community of Syracuse the consequences of violence and bullying and alternatives to such behavior. All performances are followed by a
talk back.
In light of the recent VA Tech violence, I urge you to reserve your FREE tickets today! It is a short piece, with a very talented cast who has poured their hearts into raising awareness about school shootings, bullying
and violence, as a means to create community dialogue and to utilize the craft of theatre as a tool of activism. This is theatre of life. I am operating lights and sound and work extensively with the students throughout the
unique rehearsal process. This is a project that is very personal to me as an educator, mediator and artist. I urge you to show your support!!!

For more information about the performances call 882-4070 or email danhawthorne@yahoo.com.

To reserve your FREE tickets, please call the box office at 546-3224 (although the show is FREE, it is suggested that you reserve your
tickets, as the house is small and most nights sell out).
