From the Publisher's Desk: Ice Cream Social has fun for all

Ice cream and airplanes and dancers, oh my! OWL and singers and prizes, oh my!

Have I piqued your interest?

The day is fast approaching to enjoy these things and so much more! From 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday at Wilber Park in Oneonta, the second annual Ice Cream Social will take place. I invite you all to join us for a day of fun and activities, and of course, all the free ice cream you can eat.

The Daily Star is proud to sponsor the event, teaming up with Oneonta World of Learning, the city of Oneonta, The Arc Otsego and SUNY Oneonta. Boy, do we have a great day planned.

The Oneonta World of Learning (OWL) is a children's museum and is "committed to creating a space and offering experiences that support curiosity and a love of learning by providing opportunities to explore the arts, world cultures and the physical and natural sciences through interactive exhibits, family and group programs, and community partnerships for children and their grown-ups who are residents of and visitors to our region."

The organization is the driving force behind 17 local organizations dedicated to children and families that will be on hand with information and activities throughout the park. There will be an obstacle course, a bubble station, mask and paper-doll creation, the Farmers' Museum old-time games, the Utica Zoomobile and more.

The SUNY Oneonta Science Discovery Center and woodworking projects sponsored by Lowe's and Home Depot are just another reason to come.

It is also not surprising that OWL's brain power created a scavenger hunt that will culminate in building a children's museum with all the items from the search, which will be great for kids of all ages.

Now let's talk about the talent. Performances by the Orpheus Musical Kids on the Go, Starstruck Players and Stanley & Wade School of Dance are on the agenda, along with storytelling by Maria Johnson and mime by Abbey Koutnik.

  • April activities abound at Thanksgiving Home There were many April fool jokes played here at Clara Welch Thanksgiving Home on April 1. Some of us found our door name plates turned upside down or swapped with one from another door and furniture and objects were mysteriously moved around in our rooms. The dining room was completely transformed from its usual formal setting into a hodpodge of mismatched china and … horrors, plastic tablecloths and paper napkins. Each table was decorated with a different theme, Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Easter. Christmas carols played in the background. We suspect that Dee Bouck, of Personal Care and John Santello, Activities Director, were mainly responsible for this mayhem.
