Somers, New York: June Recollections

SOMERS, N.Y. - It has been just one month since The Daily Somers website was launched. Here are some of the month's highlights:

In the schools, the Green Power Club at Somers High raced their home-built electric car, the Fashion students presented their British Invasion designs , the staff had to prepare for an unexpected heat wave, and 250 seniors graduated .

In the political arena, we saw same-sex marriage discussed and passed, and the tax cap legislation also passed.

The annual Independence Day Celebration went off without a hitch, despite threatening rain and Father's Day proved kids still like their dads. The circus came to town!

A few Somers landmarks made news. The Angle Fly Preserve is undergoing much-needed restoration by volunteers from the Somers Land Trust. Demolition of a derelict barn has been under contention at Town Board Meetings and remains unresolved at this time. To the delight of dog-owners, work is under way on a Somers Dog Park . The actors at Heritage Hills performed "Morning's At Seven" to an appreciative audience.

Muscoot Farm made the news several times, what with baby animals , 4-H cheese-making and the seasonal farmers' market . Furthermore, Muscoot was awarded a Heritage Advocate Award by Heritage Preservation, a national non-profit organization.

Local Icon I.B.M. celebrated its 100th Anniversary.

The town faced some challenging thunder storms and an annoying power outage.

After a number of preliminary events, Relay for Life finally culminated with the all-night marathon. Co-organizer Carol Cirieco reports that approximately 1500 people attended and the earnings came to about $110,000.

And we said farewell to a couple of World War II vets: Ralph Morese and Salvatore Cafiero .
