Don't just sweep leaves and grass clippings into
the street. Not only is it prohibited but, leaves and grass
clippings wash into storm sewer drains, reducing the quality of nearby lakes
and rivers. Fish populations suffer when algae, feeding on leaves and nitrogen-rich
grass clippings, consume the oxygen they need to survive. Grass
also carries pesticides which harm fish. An option you can consider is creating
a household compost bin that will turn yard waste into valuable fertilizer and
rich potting soil. Or, you can bag your yard clippings for pickup by your Orleans County trash collection service, or
place with no bag AT the curb for
our annual leaf pick-up which will be done when the majority of the leaves are off the trees, early to mid November.

1865 Bent's Opera House in downtown Medina
In pursuit of
our revival of the 1865 Bent's Opera House in downtown Medina, the Orleans
Renaissance Group commissioned a professionally produced promotional
It depicts a
grandmother figure, Helen Zelazny of Medina, who, having celebrated her wedding
at the Opera House in 1951, finds herself rediscovering the space where she
spent one of the most important days of her life. Making this video was special
to Helen, as she would have celebrated her 60th anniversary this year, but for
her husband's recent passing. Original photos of her actual wedding at the
Opera House are featured in the video.
The video was produced by Andrew
Manzano, a Rochester-area film maker.
The story is compelling, the
imagery and music beautiful, and the overall effort a work of art. This video
highlights not just our vision for rebirth of the building, but also our focus
on promoting the arts and media in all its forms, every step of the way. I hope
you enjoy it, and please share!
This short film featuring the
Greycliffe String Quartet shows the emotional connection that we can establish
with the places where the cherished moments of our lives unfold. The grandmother
in the story actually had her wedding reception in Bent's Hall, in Medina, NY,
sixty years ago. We see in this short journey the rich history of this treasured
structure intertwined with the magic that this place can hold for the coming
