The Cayuga Community College Student Activities Board and student organizations will host a Peace Festival from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday, April 28 at the Fulton Campus, 806 W. Broadway. The event is free and open to the public.
“Last year, everyone loved the games, especially the dunk booth and the balloon artist Haley Watts,” said event organizer Angela Wornick, student activity coordinator at the Fulton Campus. “These fun activities will be back again this year.”
In addition to the dunk tank and carnival games, the festival will feature tie-dying T-shirts for sale. People of all ages can also participate in a range of “inflatable activities,” including a bounce house and slide.
CNY Arts Center will be joining the American Red Cross to recognize their heroes in an open gala Saturday, April 28 at the Thunder Island Oasis, 21 Wilcox Rd., Fulton.
“Arts in Motion: Heroes for the American Red Cross” will be a culminating event that will give acknowledgement to those who have been donating and raising funds during the Red Cross’s recent Hero campaign.
The purpose of the gathering is not only to recognize these heroes, but to also bring their actions and accomplishments to life through art.
Through this, the organizations hope to get exposure for the heroes and for the local artists as well.

I am writing to provide our community members with a new update about the changes occurring in our classrooms and schools across the Fulton City School District as we implement the New York State Regents Reform Agenda, which is aligned with the federal Race to the Top Plan.
The New York State Board of Regents has made significant changes in what our students are learning in school and how their learning is assessed.
The goal of the Board of Regents initiative is that upon graduation from high school all of our students will be better prepared for college level course work and they will be ready for a career in the work place.
The Fulton girls lacrosse team hosted Jamesville-DeWitt Saturday in a game that was a battle for the top spot in the league.
Even though J-D attempted eight more shots on goal, Fulton withstood the aggressive play by making the most of the shot attempts that it took.
The Lady Raiders made 81 percent of their shot in the 13-11 win, which put them at the top of the league standings.
Following a competitive first half, Fulton took an 8-6 lead into halftime. The second half was even more competitive as both teams scored five goals a piece. J-D, however, was unable to cut into the Lady Raiders’ lead as they escaped with the two-goal win.
