Old News – Honeoye Falls Village Hall

Sorry about the quality of the picture but sometimes it is difficult to repair bad scans. If you look hard you might see four ladders propped up against the Village Hall on the left of the picture.

I wrote about the Iron Fireman that sits up on top of the Village Hall in this blog post from last year..

Trustee William Mantegna Suggests ‘Let’s Make this a Community Hall’

From sidewalk to Iron Fireman the Honeoye Falls Village Hall is getting itself a new coat of outside paint, the bricks in red and the trim in contrasting cream. Weather has slowed the job, but it’s near completion now. The work is being done under the supervisor of Trustee William Mantegna, who is in charge of maintenance and upkeep of the village hall. The village is trying to upgrade the building and put it to best use for the whole community. The town and village courts both use a room that has been set up for the purpose, and an auditorium and halls downstairs and upstairs are available for community use. Some groups are not charged but must supply supervision, others may use the facilities for a small fee. Arrangements may be made with the village clerk, who clears the request with Mr. Mantegna. the village hall was last painted five years ago, but three years ago the old interior gutters were closed over, and exterior gutters installed. The Iron Fireman will be painted before the job is considered complete, and he will also be given additional lighting.
