Friday, July 20th, Commerce Chenango will host a bus trip from Norwich to Binghamton to see the, ah hem, Rumble Ponies in action at NYSEG Stadium. They are, of course, the Double A affiliate of the New York Mets (Binghamton Mets sounded SO much better).
The New York State legislature has OK'd small fireworks for this year's July 4th home celebrations. Sparklers, party poppers, fireworks fountains and some small ground based fireworks are the only types allowed.
Not all counties have signed on to this new rule, however...
Independence Day is perfect for outdoor family fun. It's also the one time of year when it’s seems to be okay to play with matches. Family fun and playing with matches may seem like an unlikely combo, but hey, so is America, right?
