A Benefit for Jacksonville Community Park
The Jacksonville Community Association is hosting Woodstock 1869, a fundraiser to build a restroom for the Jacksonville Community Park. The event, in the style of an old country fair, will feature local musical talents Uncle Joe and the Rosebud Ramblers, and Erich Von Sterrich—The World’s Loudest Tuba Player, and TOiVO. Performances by the Crapstone Royal Shakespeare Company, Mark Twain—Humorist, and magicians Sir Moreland, and Lord Stanley and Lady Michelle will make the afternoon one to never forget. Raven of the East will provide tarot readings in the Sorcerer’s Bower, and local celebrities will be ceremoniously dunked in the 500 gallon dunk tank. A corn hole tournament is sure to get the blood pumping, and cotton candy will delight the tongue. Alexander’s food truck will be present to provide just the thing to sate the wildest of appetites.
The Jacksonville Community Association (JCA) is a not-for-profit organization that has owned and operated the 10 acre park at 3037 Swamp College Rd, Jacksonville, since 1960. The JCA and community members recently worked with Design Connect, a student-run program based in Cornell’s graduate School of Landscape Architecture, to create a master plan for the park. The bathroom was selected by popular demand as the first feature of the plan to be constructed. The JCA partnered with the Town of Ulysses and received a parks and trails improvement grant from Tompkins County to cover part of the cost of building the restroom. Monies raised at Woodstock 1869 will go entirely to
financing additional expenditures on the lavatory—quite literally throwing money down the toilet!
