"Good Neighbor Day" Fall Edition

The Town of Penfield is hosting the fifth annual Terry Rothfuss Memorial Good Neighbor Day on Saturday, October 24 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM. This annual event is usually held in the spring, but this year it was canceled due to COVID-19 concerns. We are pleased we could reschedule it before winter.

Good Neighbor Day was designed to help seniors, veterans, or those who are disabled to do light yard work and (this year) fall cleanup. We need volunteers of all ages to help gather debris, rake out flower beds, and other fall chores to help Penfield neighbors prepare for the coming winter months. Projects are all outdoors where volunteers can maintain physical distance and wear masks as appropriate.

Terry Rothfuss was a farmer in East Penfield who was a friend to all. He was always ready and willing to help anyone at any time. When he passed away in 2014, a huge hole was left in our community. Terry’s friends and family want to carry on his legacy of friendship by continuing to help the community and inspire others to do the same.
