Cayuga County is making an urgent appeal for donations of personal protective equipment
The Cayuga County Emergency Management Office is seeking donations of personal protective equipment (PPE) from local companies, such as unused masks, gowns, gloves, and Tyvek suits. The county’s frontline staff in fire rescue and law enforcement as well as staff at the hospital, health department, and medical facilities are in dire need of PPE to tackle the Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 in our communities. Being able to supply our frontline staff with sufficient supplies of PPE goes to the heart of the county’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic in an effort to protect them, their families, and everyone they work with and serve.
Construction companies or other industries that have extra PPE to donate can contact Harry Sherman at the County Emergency Management Office at 315-702-7643 to coordinate the drop-off. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

THE AURORA HISTORICAL SOCIETY/VILLAGE HISTORY CENTER
The Aurora Historical Society/Village History Center, in line with the Village of Aurora, is suspending public hours for the present. The current show, "Scoundrels & Scamps," began as an online serialized story on Wednesday, and will continue publishing on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, with as much enhanced content as possible - more old photos, more about the scenes as they are today.
So please look up "Village of Aurora Historical Society," using the full name in quotes. The Facebook page is the first entry; click on it. (You don't have to "be on Facebook" to visit - it's a public page.) Bookmark and return often. If there is a fourth-grader in your life, please enjoy the content together (physically or on line); local and State history are required for that grade. Comments and memories always welcome!
The Aurora Historical Society/Village History Center is located at 371 Main Street; follow the white fence to the rear courtyard. It is accessible to all, and programs are always free.
