Chamber Co-Sponsors Holistic Health Fair

Macedon Public Library was the site for an Alternative and Holistic Health Fair, sponsored by the library and the Canal Connection Chamber of Commerce, which was held on Saturday, April 22 (which also happened to be Earth Day). Nearly a dozen exhibitors were present, representing holistic healing practices ranging from chiropractic to homeopathy to essential oils. They explained and demonstrated their services and offered samples to more than 30 attendees. The event was free and open to the public.

A Win-Win for the Community

“Patrons have often asked about having such a fair, and they certainly have an appetite for alternative and holistic medical literature,” said library director Stacey Wicksall. “Keeping this in mind, it seemed that offering the fair would be of value to the community. They would have the opportunity to meet local practitioners and sample some of their treatments to get a better sense of what alternatives appeal.  Also, for the local practitioners, the fair helped them to reach new clients, which means they, hopefully, will be able to continue offering their services in the area.  It’s a win-win!”

Chamber of Commerce President Shelly Conboy agreed with Wicksall. “Our successful event,  located in a central area, provided the community the opportunity to hear about holistic options available to them in our local communities,” she said. “As non-chemical healing  is on the rise, we were happy to support our community members with more education and opportunity to experience them.”

Face to Face

Face to Face

In the news this last weekend, Palmyra, New York, was the home for a Face to Face with Youth Discussion for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (a Canal Connection Chamber of Commerce member).  Broadcast live from the Smith Farm in Palmyra, New York, this one-of-a-kind event is estimated to have an audience of over 1.5 million viewers.  While live feeds joined two other groups – one in England, and the other in South Africa – it was streamed on social media.

Several youth in the Palmyra area participated in the event.  Palmyra’s very own Katelyn Jones (Pal-Mac High School) played piano for a special musical number.  Furthermore, other participants came from surrounding areas like Rochester, Ithaca, Buffalo and more.  This was a program for youth, by the youth.

Palmyra’s Impact

In a post-production interview, President Henry B. Eyring and Elder Jeffrey R. Holland acknowledged how grateful they are to the residents and people of Palmyra.  In their acknowledgement of church members coming from all over the world to visit Palmyra, they said Palmyra was a type of Mecca for members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  They expressed their appreciation for hospitality shown by the good citizens of Palmyra.

Summary

In conclusion, this one-of-a-kind event is never to be repeated. Seen all over the world, our tiny Village of Palmyra had its impact last weekend.  Most of all, the dignitaries from Salt Lake City, Utah, gave public thanks to our tiny village.
