Native craft-makers gathered at the Onondaga Nation Arena over the weekend to sell their work and raise money for the Onondaga Nation Education Group. The effort raises funds to support Native Students attending college in the Syracuse area, and it attracted vendors from across New York State for the event.
Onondaga County Residents began their day early this morning honoring the victims and first responders in observance of the 12th Anniversary of Nine Eleven. At least 200 people stood in silence for 17 minutes beginning at 8:46 AM at Foreman Park in Syracuse to honor them.
The Grand Marshall of this year’s Labor Day Parade at the State Fair was led by a current military member. Senior Master SGT. Toby Shelly’s 29 year career in the military has taken him on a rewarding journey. He’s now a Superintendent with craftsmen for an Engineering Unit with the 174th Fighter Wing at Hancock Field.
The State Fair is winding down, and if you’re looking for something different to check out, the Empire State Theatre and Musical Museum in the Art and Home Center might fit the bill. Sure, you’ll be hoofing it all over the fairgrounds, but spare yourself some energy to perform some 'pedal pumping' on a player piano from the early 1900’s.
