This Months Feature Story

A fund and TV program support young performers

Story by Aaron Gifford

Whenever Carrie Lazarus heard reports about yet another local ballplayer accepting a college scholarship, she couldn’t help but think of the young singers, dancers or musicians who would not be trumpeted by the newspapers, interviewed by reporters or raved about at office water coolers on Monday mornings.


The Erie Canal Museum’s annual Gingerbread Gallery opens on Friday, Nov. 21, at 10 a.m. The gallery--a display of some 40 confections depicting fairy tale, children’s story and local history scenes--is always a magical treat for viewers of all ages. The gallery is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., through Jan. 4. It’s closed Nov. 27, Dec. 25 and Jan. 1. The Erie Canal Museum is at 318 Erie Blvd. E., Syracuse. Admission to the gallery is $5 for adults, $4 for senior citizens, and $2 for children age 12 and under. For more information, call 471-0593.
