Fun Fact about the Syracuse area …did you know……that auto racing and motorcycle racing came to the NYS Fairgrounds in the early 1900’s when such renowned names as Barney Oldfield, Ralph DePalma and Wilbur Shaw brought their speedy autos to town to race around the oval dirt track at breathtaking speeds approaching 60 miles per hour.  Through the years, auto racing has been a staple at the NYS Fair, from the Indianapolis-style racing that featured many of the biggest stars on that circuit half a century ago, to the present day stock car racing.   Beyond the NYS Fair, racing continues at this venue.  In 1972, DIRT Week was formed bringing Big-Block Modified cars to the oval track at the Fairgrounds.   This year marks year 42 for “racing’s biggest party” … DIRT Week! … running from October 9 through October 13, 2013 at the Empire Expo Center/NYS Fairgrounds.

Please find this week’s edition of the Friday Facts here.

MARCELLUS, N.Y. –

Baltimore Woods Nature Center is excited to announce the appointment of Mary

Kate Hartmann as its new Executive Director. Hartmann will officially begin her new role on May 6th,

2013. The Board of Directors at Baltimore Woods began their comprehensive search for a new leader in

2012 when the current head, Patty Weisse, announced her retirement after 14 years of dedicated service.

Hartmann’s appointment was approved by the Board of Directors on March 26, 2013.

The

Skaneateles YMCA and Community Center recently held a victory celebration for the successful

completion of its annual community support campaign. Over 50 volunteer campaigners were thanked for

their wonderful efforts. The Y raises dollars every spring to underwrite its central tenet of providing

services to all, regardless of economic condition. More than $40,000 was raised, far surpassing the goal

of $30,000. Special thanks go to Lynne Jones and Margaret Usdansky, and their families, for their superb

leadership in bringing the campaign to a successful conclusion. Their good work and that of all of the

volunteers ensures that Y services remain available to everyone. A special thank you goes also to the

many individuals and businesses whose generous contributions put us over the top. Supporting the

scholarship campaign is a wonderful way to give back to your community. All of you have indeed made a

difference.
