A new tradition for Auburn

Review by Tom Woods, Special to the Citizen
Grade: A

“When I wrote last year that I hoped the Auburn
Public Theater would make “A Child’s Christmas in
Wales” an annual event, I thought perhaps that its
creators would allow the theater to mount the play on
its own. I didn’t expect Polly Hogan and Ron Ritchell
to bring it back themselves. Hogan and Ritchell, together
with APT co-founder Carey Eidel and local actor Dave Tobin,
are reunited for another round of the play running…
this December the downtown theater. (more…)

Following the November 11, 2007, Veteran’s Day events at Memorial City Hall, State Senator Mike Nozzolio and Assemblyman Gary Finch presented the Veterans Memorial Park Committee with a grant of $100,000 which enabled construction in the Pomeroy Park area, with the blessing of the City of Auburn.

April 3, 2008 saw the placement of a steel arch emblazoned with the words “Veterans Memorial Park,” which was designed by students at Auburn High School. This entrance is adjacent to monuments honoring World War I, World War II, and Korean War veterans. In total, the Park honors veterans from Cayuga County from the Revolutionary War to the present with memorials, pavers engraved with the names of veterans, memorial benches, landscaped plantings and flags.

Students from East Middle School researched battles from each war that are featured on the memorial stones lining the main walkway. Liverpool masonry apprentice students repaired a stone wall that was built in the 1950s. John Barwinczok, Park Committee Chairman, knew it is important to involve area youth in the project. Barwinczok shared, “If they have a hand in creating the memorial, then they will respect it.”

In mid June the City celebrated the dedication of Veterans Memorial Park with a touching ceremony giving recognition of everyone who had contributed to the completion of the Park. The project was truly a community effort demonstrating respect for every life that was given by our residents, in service to this country. Please enjoy the solitude and beauty of this park.

Veterans Memorial Park is an ever-evolving memorial. Contributions and memorials may be arranged by contacting John Barwinczok at (315) 253-6022.

The Park is located on Genesee Street, between the Cayuga County Office Building and Seymour Library and across the street from Sts. Peter and John Episcopal Church and the Auburn Family Restaurant.

Auburn, NY Cayuga County Hometown History and CultureWhat do Las Vegas, NV, Branson, MO and Auburn, NY, all have in common? A unique brand that helps visitors understand their unique environments, attractions and cultures. In August, the City’s Historic & Cultural Sites Commission introduced a new campaign to help create a new brand for Auburn, entitled: History’s Hometown.

The Commission will promote the concept of History’s Hometown to help visitors recognize that Auburn is a remarkable hub for key figures and events in American history. The city offers attractions related to the Civil War, the Underground Railroad, Black History, American art history, Women’s Rights and more. In addition, “History’s Hometown” helps convey that Auburn is a small, welcoming city.

City Manager, Mark Palesh, believes that the new campaign leverages one of Auburn’s biggest strengths. “Founded in 1793, the City of Auburn has served as the historical crossroads for famous political figures, significant events, and culture,” Palesh says. “It provides a unique window into the forces that helped shape this country.”

According the Meg Vanek, Tourism Director for Cayuga County, the new positioning taps into a growing tourism trend centered around U.S. history and heritage. “Auburn really stands out among regional towns and cities,” explains Vanek. Not only does it offer all of the benefits of being located in the Finger Lakes, but its cultural and historic resources form the basis for a potentially robust heritage tourism program.”

The History’s Hometown marketing campaign will be rolled out over the next year. It will launch in August with billboards, public relations efforts, e-mail promotions and support at the retail level. For information about History’s Hometown, visit www.tourauburnny.com or call 315-255-1658.

About Auburn’s Historic & Cultural Sites Commission
The vision of the Commission is to position Auburn as the destination of choice in the Finger Lakes through support and promotion of its history and culture. The Commission organizations include Auburn Public Theater, Auburn Schine’s Theatre, Cayuga Museum & Case Research Lab, Harriet Tubman Home, Schweinfurth Memorial Art Center, Seward House Museum and Willard Memorial Chapel.
