    Is there a farmstand in the area where I can get some fresh strawberries – and other produce as the season goes on? I know we have a small one right up Lake Road, but are there others nearby?

    • Sandy Denman

      Hi Chris. I like Morgan’s Half Acre farm stand. Its about 15- 20 minutes from Aurora. I saw their strawberry sign just yesterday. The address is 6169 Half Acre Rd. Auburn. Very easy to find with your garmin. Wonderful folks. Tell them I sent you.

    Hi All,

    We no longer reside on Honoco but we do still have a property there. I just wanted to ask if the leash law and picking up after your animals law was also was law for Honoco Rd? I ask this because every year when we come to mow, plant, mulch and clean up our place for summer we end up mowing dog crap every year🙈 I know the the place looks abandoned till we get there for the first time every year 🙈( I was there today and did almost all of the yard work)however, weather our yard is mowed or not it’s not a litter box for others animals !! PLEASE people we would appreciate if your animal must poop that you clean it up and also neighbors just don’t let your dogs out and just allow them to come to our yard PLEASE AND THANKYOU! Another reason is we have poison out around for other pests and wouldn’t want to have an un necessary tragedy🙈❤️

    Many thanks to whoever it was that stood those two mailboxes up at the beginning of the mailbox row. I understand we may be fixing those mailboxes for good this summer. If so I’ll be more than happy to volunteer my time to help spearhead this. Thank you again to whoever it was it’s good those boxes up. Tom

    Good morning rodies…..Hopefully everyone had a safe and Happy Thanksgiving…

    By now I am sure that you have received your email from Cindy Krause about planning our New Years Eve Party. I thought I would post our invite on our website in case some one did not receive their email…

    We want to have a progressive New Years Eve Party as we had two years ago. Many of us want to stay close to home and thought it would be a good idea to do this again. Two years ago there were 4 stops including appetizers, soups, main meal and dessert. The following morning many folks got together for a brunch.

    We are asking if interested in participating please contact Cindy or myself by Dec 8th so we can put together a meeting to organize who is doing what.

    Thank you and look forward to talking with you soon…..

    Last week someone damaged Janet McCarthy’s mailbox. I was going to try to repair it however some good samaritan replaced it with a new box. No one knows who did that. I as the mail carrier would like to thank whoever replaced her box.

    Good morning Rodies….

    As discussed at our annual meeting, we decided that trimming the brush along the side of our road twice a year would be a good idea. I have volunteered to head up the group….

    as I was thinking it over we probably should do this on a week day. I would like to do it in June if possible and then in the fall after Labor Day.

    If interested in helping, please call me 315-604-0789 or email maryannvincent18@yahoo.com….

    Tenative dates could be June 12 or 16 or 19…please let me know if any of these dates work for you.

    Thank you and looking forward to hearing from you soon.

    I’m the new owner of the cute red cottage at 1889 East Lake Rd. I’d love to sell the boat hoist as I’m not planning to need it. It is a Shore Station with an electric drive and canopy. I haven’t a clue what it’s value is, but any fair offer will work for me. I have all of the manuals and instruction sheets that Jeff had collected.

    Hello All! I am putting in a new culvert and I am looking for a place on the road to put about 15-25 tons of shale. The shale is nice and clean. If you are looking for some clean fill please email me mimiblugy@gmail.com or call (607) 351-6266. We are looking to do this sometime this November.

    Thanks!

  • Mary Ann Vincent

    Good morning Rodies,
    I am trying to put together a group of people that would volunteer to help clear some of the brush on the road side. The tentative date will be Columbus Day, October 10th.
    We will not clear anything that is on your property, only brush that has grown up by the road that is scratching our vehicles as we drive by or pull over.
    Please let me know if you are interested to help with this project. You can contact me by phone 315-604-0789 or email maryannvincent18@yahoo.com.

    The plan will be to meet at my house at 8:30.

    As always thank you and look forward to hearing from you all.

    Good morning Rodies…..This is a reminder that our Annual Road Picnic is SUNDAY AUGUST 8th at 2:00. Our gathering will be at the point, thank you Vickie, which will give us shade, larger area as well as more available parking.

    As we know, it takes a lot of hands to pull off a successful event so we are asking those that would like to donate some time to set up, clean up, donate paper goods…..help cook…..please contact Moreen MacNamara, Ed Osborn, Bob King, Tom Holland, Mary Ann Vincent to sign up for anything you would like to do. You can email us, call or just stop by and let us know what you would like to do to help.

    This is an awesome event and allows us all to get to know one another a little better.

    Look forward to hearing from you all soon……

    Thank you,

    The golf carts on our road have gotten completely our if control. Many are being driven by children and drunks and while we are all very concerned about the speed of cars it appears that golf carts and four wheelers are exempt from the speed limit. It seams that there is much more golf cart traffic than car traffic.

  • This posting is to inform anyone interested that we want to give away our boat hoist and roof assemble free to anyone willing to come and dismantle it (with my help) and haul it away. We are at 1441 Honoco Road and just bought our house last May. We don’t have a boat and don’t plan on getting one other than our canoe and kayak. I don’t know if the motor is functional but it a complete system and would probably also be valuable to someone interested in salvaging all of the metal. Feel free to stop by and look at it or call me at 607-216-7765. Thank you very much. Dave Unland

    Just to clarify, the work that necessitated the road closure last week, north of 1599, was done by us, not the road association. We used Eric Kessler and Dawn Swan, and they did an efficient and expert job. We highly recommend Kessler for this kind of work, as well as for reliable septic pumping.

    “Cayuga Inlet was closed to treat Hydrilla” Binghamton Press, Tuesday, August 25, 2015.

    The paper stated that biologists “delivered a herbicides treatment” and that it is the first in a series. It also stated that animal should not be allowed to drink from the inlet for at least 14 days however they have tested the water up to Bolton Point and there is no sign that drinking water is affected.

    Thoughts?

    Good morning fellow neighbors on Honoco Rd. I love to look at all the beautiful decorated homes, flowers, manicured lawns etc. on my way into our home. I too love to plant flowers and put out yard ornaments for everyone to enjoy.
    Within the last two weeks of August we had some property stolen from 1382. We had a large metal crane bird stolen off the property and a small wind spinner and of course our Frog mouth gutter cap. We noticed the frog being gone and thought it was a joke. Yesterday we noticed our large crane metal bird taken from our roadside in front of your house The crane stands almost 3 feet tall. It was a costly item and one of my favorites. If anyone finds this crane lawn ornament please let me know. Sincerley, Linda Kittredge. 607-821-8496.

    Algae growth

    I have spoke with many residents who are very concerned about the algae we are seeing this year. All agree it is different from previous years and more invasive. Some growth on the shore has a terrible odor.

    I made several calls to the DEC and was finally connected with a representative in Albany who handles Algae concerns. After a couple of calls, he said he did not have the resources to send someone here in person but would send me a kit to take a sample and send it in. Mr. Patella also called and was told the same thing. We would really like to see them come down here and look (and smell) for themselves.

    If you are concerned about the algae or if you’d like to support our efforts , please call Scott Kishbaugh, DEC and request that he send a DEC representative here to assess our concerns. (518) 402-8286.

    Thank you.

    Ann

    • Ann, you are right on the money. Seaweed is thicker and of different varieties. It is bad on the other side too. Thanks for calling Albany. We can all call there but they are individual calls. Our road association represents about 150 (there abouts) homes. I’m guessing this seaweed will only get worse. I’m willing to work with you and others.

    This is a great way to communicate. I would like to upload the lovely pic I have of a sunset in the rain, dated July 21, but don’t see how to do that. Also am sorry to miss the first annual Honoco Road picnic since it is right next door, but we have a wedding that weekend! Have fun!

    The grand opening for the new Village of Aurora Farmers Market is this Saturday, July 18th at 9am.

    The market will start small this week, because so many interested area farmers have experienced crop delays because of the rainy weather this spring/summer. But small is beautiful!! And the market will grow over time as more produce comes into season.

    The Market will be open on Saturdays from 9:00AM – 12:00 Noon thru Saturday, October 10th. Come by, come BUY!!!

    The market will be held at the Wells College Softball Field parking lot (corner of Route 90 and Poplar Ridge Road).

    Our Market’s mission is to provide access to high quality, locally grown and/or produced food and other products that promote and support local farms and businesses.

    Interested in becoming a Market Vendor (or know something who might be?) Contact Marian Brown, interim market manager, at 364-3304 or by email at mbrown@wells.edu

    The Village of Aurora Farmers Market is made possible this year through a grant from the Cayuga Health Association Fund, a component of the Cayuga Community Fund, an affiliate fund of the Central New York Community Foundation.

      Thanks Susan for this info….had no idea and am very excited to have the market down the road.

    I threw in the towel on the corporate world and retired as of 7/1 and trying to spend most of the time on the lake,….
    I have the little blue backhoe and happy to help out with small jobs,…bigger jobs is for the folks with the big equipment and trucks. I do not want to take work away from our reliable friendly contractors though. Smaller stuff with no need to haul material out, need it done now, I probably can help.

    Nice website and thanks to Bob King for his work,…
