Chittenango to Celebrate Bicentennial

(Chittenango, NY – Jan. 2012) This year marks the bicentennial of the establishment of the village of Chittenango. The community will be celebrating in many different ways, from a celebration of July 27 and 28 to a capsule dedication on the last day of the year. Many organizations are taking part throughout the year and will be helping in this effort.

Banners have been hung along Genesee Street to declare the beginning of this celebration. If you are not sure where the banner symbol came from, look to the top of a building along Genesee St. They were designed by one of our local artists.

The year-long schedule of events kicked of Jan. 1 with the Frozen Foot Race, which will be followed Jan. 28 with the annual Chittenango Rotary Casino Night.

In February, we will have Boy Scout Week, a Community Night Out (Oz event) on Feb. 11 and a Canal Bowling Bash (Chittenango Landing Canal Boat Museum) Feb. 26.

Check these pages often for more information on other events planned throughout the year. Volunteers are needed for many events; those interested in volunteering are asked to contact Dick Sullivan or Charles Albee at the Chittenango Village Historian’s Office at (315) 687-6331 ext. 7.
