					 Penfield’s Historic Ghost Walk
    Penfield Local History Room & Penfield Recreation are beginning Penfield’s
  Bicentennial early with a visit from some of the early settlers of our quaint town.

Join us and you will have the opportunity to visit and hear from the
spirits of Penfield. The portal curtain that divides this world from the
next is open for the ghosts to walk amongst us and share some of their
memories of this once small village. Do not be afraid! They are here as
friends and teachers, ready to tell a story or relive a moment in time
once not so long ago.
Travel the old paths and meet many spirits on their way to their
respective destinations. The 200th Bicentennial has created great
excitement with the past residents of Penfield and they are thrilled to
celebrate the history that is rooted in the rolling hills of the east.

Dates: Friday, October 9 (Rain date Oct. 10)
       Friday, October 16 (Rain date Oct. 17)

           Tours begin at 7 pm

  Victory Garden
Penfield is establishing a Community Victory Garden on
approximately 3 acres of Town property on Five Mile Line Road,
north of Atlantic Ave. This garden is a pilot project, set to open in
2010 (Penfield’s Bicentennial year) to provide garden plots for
residents who want to grow their own flowers and vegetables.
We are putting together a project team of volunteers for the
development of the site and for the management of the garden.
If you are interested in helping, please contact Penfield’s
Recreation department at 340-8655 or email srenner@penfield.
