MUSIC TONIGHT!…One last reminder, the Penfield Pops Band will be playing at the Penfield Amphitheater & Kiwanis Stage tonight at 7:00 PM. The weather will be perfect and this talented group of musicians provides wonderful entertainment!
Last week, I had the honor of attending an open house for one of Penfield’s newest small businesses, Radiant Sun Acupuncture, located at 1742 Penfield. Owner/operator Julie Grogan and her family welcomed several dozen clients, friends, and community members as they cut the ribbon for her new location. Services provided at Radiant Sun Acupuncture include acupuncture, electroacupuncture, cupping, moxibustion, Gua Sha, Qi Gong, and Tui Na. We are delighted that Julie chose Penfield for her business!
A reminder on behalf of the Penfield Ecumenical Food Shelf…As we get closer to the end of the school year and summer vacations get underway, please remember to support the PEFS. The families they serve have year-round needs, and donations tend to drop off during busy summer months. Also this year, PEFS has a program called “Summer Food for Kids.” Consider visiting the PEFS website at www.penfieldecumenicalfoodshelf.org to review their current needs and wish list. A special thank you goes to the many generous donors and volunteers who make the PEFS operation possible…your efforts do make a difference!
Over the last several weeks I have had a number of residents ask where they can find Penfield TV, as they no longer see programming on channel 12 and 15. Spectrum Cable wanted those channels for themselves, and as we all know, it’s about the exposure and the money. Therefore, Penfield TV has been moved to channels 1301 and 1303. Additionally, we provide a high definition web stream at www.penfieldtv.org and through ROKU. Board meetings and other local programs are made available on-demand through YouTube, Vimeo and ROKU under the channel “Penfield Television.” If you have any questions, please email email@example.com or call the department at 340-8661.
Mark your calendars for the Penfield Library’s 2018 Children’s Summer Reading Game that begins Monday, June 25 and runs through Wednesday, August 1. For complete Reading Game and summer program information, please contact the library at 340-8720 x4016 or visit www.penfieldlibrary.org.

If you spend time at Greenwood Park for lacrosse, tennis, or the new playground, you will see our DPW crews expanding the parking lot to better serve you. This park has become very popular and parking has always been at a premium. This work should take a few weeks; thank you in advance for your patience!
Until next week, enjoy this wonderful weather we are having! Spend time outside and consider enjoying one of our many parks in Penfield!
