||Mayfaire on the Green
||Free Admission Renaissance Festival: Three Years and Counting!
Northern Oneida County’s own much-loved renaissance festival, Mayfaire on the Green, will embark on its third year of festivities. Just a few minutes outside of Utica or Rome, the historic Holland Patent Village Green will witness two days of knights in armor, fair maidens, actors and actresses, fire breathers and jugglers, Morris dancers, belly dancers, a dragon, and much more. Because of their commitment to keep the admission free of charge, Parker Publishing and Entertainment is looking for businesses to take advantage of the marketing and branding tie-ins that help fund the entertainers and the various costs in producing the event. The festival also provides important fundraising opportunities for local food pantries and other worthy causes.
Those interested in participating as “Friends of the Faire,” please contact Tim@mayfaireonthegreen.com. Any actors curious about joining the cast, please contact the Merely Players of Upstate NY at firstname.lastname@example.org.

||4-H District Public Presentation
||4-H Members from Herkimer, Madison, Oneida and Oswego Counties invite you to Tractor Supply in Rome as they participate in 4-H District Public Presentations.
Ask a 4-H alumnus, “Which 4-H experience has served you the best throughout their careers and life?” Hands down the reply will be “Public Speaking”.
Through participation in the 4-H Public Speaking program, youth ages 5-19, learn to express themselves with confidence and skill. Workshops are held throughout the year to aid the members in learning: what makes a talk interesting, how to handle questions from the audience, and how to present yourself so that you project a professional image.
All of the youth participating at Tractor Supply in Rome have completed various levels of competition to reach the 4-H District Event. In the past the District Event was the pinnacle of accomplishment for these participants. This year the 4-H State Event has been resurrected and provides our senior speakers an opportunity to compete against fellow NY State 4-H Members at Cornell on May 18th.
Youth will be speaking on the following topics:
From My Oven to Yours
To Make Doll Furniture
Airplane Parts and How they Work
Eat Grass, Why Pasture Products are Better
How to Make Tacos
Ride and Slide
Black Widow Spider
To Kill a Mockingbird
The Distraction of Daydreams
The Right of the People
Cornell Cooperative Extension 4-H Youth Development programs connect youth to the resources of Cornell University and the land-grant system, strengthening the next generation of inventors, entrepreneurs and problem-solvers.
Activities and events inspire and shape youth, give them opportunities to master skills, enrich their knowledge, and work with others who can positively influence them.
To become involved in 4-H, contact your local Cornell Cooperative Extension office or visit this website: http://cce.cornell.edu/Youth/Pages/4-HYouthDevelopment.aspx
