This site promotes important discussions from the most least desirable people about some of the most pressing Village matters. Instead of focusing my energies on meeting my constituents at Stewarts for important matters, I come here to communicate with them. Cindy, your concerns here are great and I think they represent the kind of helpful discourse the entire community is worried about.
I am very sorry to read above that you were unfortunately let go by the ride company. We will try to help increase your benefits while you are looking for employment. Sadly for you the carnival season is ending but maybe a local surgeon or attorney would be interested in a partnership with you and your skills.
The Fire Company has a committee for carnival purposes. I'm sure they would be honored to have you attend and straighten out the carnival to your liking. After 62 years of trying, it would be a relief to have you correct it. If you are working and unable to attend a meeting, please stop at Stewarts and pass your ideas along to them. They will be sure to forward you information.
Thank you again Cindy
Love it.

I am not against the fair, but it is not a fair, it is a carnival. The overpriced Fonda and Statefair have exhibits . The so called Firemens Fair, has, must pay rides and food only, except for a sometimes band, and Fire Works. Fairs are places where people exhibit many things, such as farm animals, industrial products, skills of woodcarvers, etc. You are only allowed free to pay for these rides and food. Fonda and Syracuse after you enter have many free exhibits.

It's a fundraiser for the volunteer fire dept. So yes, they do hope that after you enter for free, you will patronize the food booths, play the games, ride the rides, and also enjoy the free entertainment, fire equipment displays, car shows, and awesome free fireworks displays. They wouldn't ever want to step on the County Fair's (Fonda) toes by having exhibits by 4-H, the farm community, etc., as that is their thing. They've run a successful, family-oriented, reasonably priced fair for years... Lots of hard work has gone on for many generations of fire department families. Great job, STJFD!

Tips, Thank You also for another important discussion from the most least desirable people about one of the most pressing Village matters. I spent a tremendous amount of time lately at Stewarts discussing many important community matters. Unfortunatly, the carnival vs. fair dilema was not important enough to waste our time on. Tips, your concern here is great and I think it represent the kind of helpful discourse that only you are worried about.
As stated earlier to another fine unemployed citizen, the Fire Company has a committee for carnival (not FAIR) purposes. I'm sure they would be honored to have you also attend and straighten out the carnival (not FAIR) to your liking. After 62 years of trying, you can also not volunteer and think you can correct it and they are sure to welcome you to the team.
Again Tips, Thank You for pointing out the terrible time the community is having with current carnival (not FAIR) style with no or limited exhibits. The Company is eagerly looking forward to your participation in getting this FAIR to your liking for year 63.
Thank You again
