No matter what you call it, it's THE PLACE TO BE to hear about the latest business developments taking place in Penfield, as well as the Town's plans for the future - straight from the Town Supervisor himself.
This year, we will also honor and celebrate the recipients of our Annual Business Awards for 2015, including Business of the Year, the Daniel Penfield Award, and the Penfield Pride Award. There are impressive stories behind each selection and you won't want to miss the excitement!

Community Kudos for
yourCare Medical Supply
"I just wanted to say how pleased I was with 'yourCare Medical Supply' and that I am delighted to see that they are the business of the month (in December).
They have made dealing with CPAP supplies simple - like it should be. In the past, I have been very frustrated with the ordering process and associated red tape. So, they have solved a real ongoing problem for me.

RUSSIAN SPIES IN PENFIELD?!?
It's 1952: America's on the verge of the H-bomb, Dwight Eisenhower's on the campaign trail, and I Love Lucy's on Monday nights. Meanwhile, Senator Joe McCarthy's daughter just got engaged to a Soviet spy, and Boston detective Maggie Pelletier has to find out who dumped the dead guy in the Harbor-or else lose out on a honeymoon in Havana. A blunt-nosed, sharp-eyed look at love and tying (and untying, and retying) the knot.
The show will be presented as a "radio play" on Saturday, February 20 at 2:00 pm. FREE ADMISSION; donations heartily accepted.
ALSO....Mark your calendars for February 22 and 23 - Penfield Players is holding auditions for their Spring Melodrama - "Sneakypete Underhand's Devious Dealings" by Billy St. John.
There are roles for seven men and four women of various ages. Visit their Facebook page
