Editorial: To everything (turn, turn, turn)

With the passing of Bouckville Antique Weekend, and the dispersal of Route 20 traffic jams, we are reminded that just one more month of summer remains.

And what a summer it’s been so far.

A multitude of annual events have taken place, amidst record high temperatures and rain showers. July Fourth brought about the 39th annual footraces, a parade down Albany Street and a spectacular firework display over Cazenovia Lake. The Friends of Lorenzo hosted their 35th annual driving competition and the Friends of the Library held the 37th annual book sale. Caz Cruisin’ inhabited Memorial Park every Wednesday evening and music lovers populated Lake Park every Thursday night for the Oneida Savings Summer Concert Series.

Time flies when you’re having fun.

The vernal equinox will occur on Sept. 23, officially marking the beginning of autumn. Fall is a wonderful season. Leaves change a spectrum of vibrant colors and the temperature begins creeping back down the thermometer.

Autumn is also a reminder. It acts as a cue that another Central New York winter is right around the corner and as a reminder to get outside and take a stroll down your street while the sidewalk is still navigable.

There are still lots of things to look forward to before the snow falls, however.

The weekly Farmer’s Market in Cannon Park will continue every Saturday through the fall. As school begins, many of Cazenovia’s state champion student-athletes will once again grace the playing field, offering after-school entertainment for athletic supporters and spectators alike. Also, many of the walking trails in an around town have been well maintained by the Cazenovia Preservation Foundation, and make for scenic bike rides or walks with your canine companion.

Remember there is still time to take advantage of the outdoors. Be sure to see the sun while it’s still visible and feel the breeze while it’s still warm.

We live in a beautiful part of New York state. Let’s all enjoy it together!
