    The data we will collect will be sent to the USA National Phenology Network, which makes it available to researchers who are trying to understand the biological mechanisms behind seasonal changes and how they are influenced by a changing climate.
    Note: Weekly walks may be subject to schedule changes. Questions? Contact Ingrid at zabel@priweb.org.

    Enclose Cass Extravaganza

    Saturday Nov 4
    12 pm - 10 pm

    Cass Park Arena

    The 2nd Annual Enclose Cass Extravaganza on Saturday, November at Cass Park will include a Skate-a-thon, Silent Auction, Bake Sale, Broomball, and Refreshments, all benefiting the enclosure capital project.

    The Cass Park Campaign’s goal of $1 million supports upgrades that retain the arena’s traditional charm while making the city-owned and managed facility more sustainable and successful, according to Mary Grainger, FIYB volunteer who is coordinating the fundraising effort. “Cass Park is a four-season community resource that was first opened in November 1972 as an open-air ice rink,” said Grainger, who encourages everyone who has benefited from its 45 years of “fun, fitness and friendships” to participate in the campaign and the events.

    In 2017, Cass Park Arena is one of few open-air rinks remaining in upstate New York. The enclosure will provide: dehumidified “conditioned” air; ventilation, insulation, and adaptations for climate change; longer season for ice surface; improved conditions for spectators and skaters; and additional opportunities for rental income year-round. After the enclosure project is funded, there is a vision for an addition to the lobby and new locker rooms.

    Recreation Facilities Director and Cass Park Manager Jim Dalterio described the roof and ceiling renovation project funded by the City of Ithaca and completed in 2016: “This important project was needed first for the health and safety of arena users during all seasons, and also it was necessary before the glass enclosure could be built.”

    Dalterio also explains how much more efficient operations will be once enclosed, and how he anticipates increased economic impact once Cass Park can extend the ice skating season and improve seating for spectators. While there are many advantages of a functional enclosure, he is committed to maintaining the iconic character and style.

    Grainger expressed: “It’s time for community involvement in support of the important facility improvements. We need to improve Cass Park Arena conditions and ensure access future generations and for today’s users.” To participate, contact her, mmgithaca@aol.com, 607-280-4380.

    Information about the capital project and about ways to get involved is available at www.friendsiyb.org/cass as well as on Facebook as “Cass Park Campaign” and Twitter @CampaignforCass. Gifts of all sizes will be appreciated to the Cass Park Campaign; donations to FIYB, an independent 501c3 corporation, are tax deductible. Pledges of gifts to be paid over three years are also welcomed.  Mail can be sent to Cass Park Campaign c/o Friends of the Ithaca Youth Bureau, PO Box 4198, Ithaca, NY 14852.

    English Lounge, 258 Goldwin Smith Hall, Cornell University

    Cornell Dept. of English / Creative Writing Program presents In A Word with J. Robert Lennon

    “Some Important Third People”

    In our age of memoir, social media, and young adult fiction, first person rules the roost. This talk will argue that first person is often misused in American fiction, and that a good writer should always consider third, in all its complex, ungainly glory. Professor Lennon will give examples from literature of third person’s flexibility, and show writers how to use it.

    In A Word is a new series that showcases the Creative Writing Program’s significant influences and contributions to the literary world by its dedicated faculty of poets and fiction writers like J. Robert Lennon. The author of eight novels, including Mailman, Familiar, and Broken River, and the story collections Pieces for the Left Hand and See You in Paradise, you can find out more about him at jrobertlennon.com.
