To the News Enterprise:
The town of Minerva would like to thank those in our community who came together to help us celebrate our 25th Anniversary of Minerva Day on June 30.
We’d like to thank everyone who helped to make Minerva Day possible this year. Our Citizen of the Year, Kathy Halloran, was recognized for her creativity, caring and kindness towards others in her many roles here in Minerva. Thanks to the Minerva Historical Society for featuring Minerva Day in this year’s exhibit (open through the summer).
Our friends at the Minerva Central School PTSO coordinated an outstanding parade with the help of the NYS Police and Essex County Sheriff’s Dept. We would also like to thank Grace Bible Fellowship, the Minerva Baptist Church, St. Joseph’s Church, Sleeping Giants, Planet Minerva and the Minerva Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad for their contributions to the Courtney Park, parade and fireworks activities.
The Minerva Service Organization’s efforts to continue our Pant, Peddle, Paddle race were stellar. Thanks also to Mary Irene Lee for coordinating a wonderful art show, Mike Corey and Heidi Kelly for coordinating our children’s fishing derby and to Betty LeMay for coordinating our legendary potluck. Thanks as well to our Parks, Office and Highway staff who helped make things happen behind the scenes.
Last, but certainly not least, we thank the many individuals and businesses who volunteered with any and all of these activities and those who served on our planning committee or donated to this wonderful event. You are the heart and soul of our community.

Supervisor, Town of Minerva
