Wind whips off the Willow Museum door

— Like most volunteer organizations these days, the Historical Association of Greater Liverpool suffers a shrinking membership, and is finding it no easy task to staff the museum for those four hours each weekend. Dues are a mere $10 per year, lifetime memberships cost $75, and volunteers would surely be welcome even if they don’t officially join up.

If you’d like to help celebrate the village’s proud history of hard work and family values, please contact Dorianne by calling 451-7091 or emailing dgutierr@twcny.rr.com.

Wyker at the helm

American Legion Post 188 member Fred Wyker, a World War II veteran who lives in Liverpool, marks his 34th year as general chairman of the Memorial Day observance here on Monday, May 28.

“Pray for sunshine,” Wyker advised.

Fred follows in the footsteps of another Fred – Fred Kies – a World War I veteran who coordinated Memorial Day here for an amazing 60 years, from 1918 to 1978.

The Monday-morning ceremony which begins at 9 a.m. at Johnson Park, will be keynoted by Liverpool Public Library Director Jean Armour Polly, who was raised right here in the village.

Perennial Parade Marshal Garrey Curry, a veteran of the Vietnam War, is experiencing health problems but he’ll surely be on hand as the parade marches from the park to the cemetery where “Taps” will be intoned and a firing squad will salute our fallen heroes.

Bronzettis squeeze Sitrus

Guitarist Tom Bronzetti and his sister, singer Alicia Bronzetti – both graduates of Liverpool High School – will team up on a set of jazz standards and show tunes from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, May 25, at Sitrus on the Hill, at the Sheraton Syracuse University Hotel.

Last year, Tom released his debut disc, “Make Someone Happy” which features tunes such as “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered,” “Jet Stream” and “London Blues.”

CNY Jazz Central hosts the Friday-evening series called Jazz @ Sitrus which continues June 1 and June 15; cnyjazz.org. The Sheraton University is located at 801 University Ave., on the SU Hill; Admission is free; 475-3000.
