This week on a special Independence Day edition of Sunday Conversation – two of South Seneca’s strongest advocates step into the studio to talk about the Edith B. Ford Memorial Library, The Three Bears Complex, Downtown Ovid, and how the three are using collaboration to grow well-beyond the village of Ovid’s borders. The future site of South Seneca’s very own tourism hub will play host to an interactive event coming up on July 13th called ‘Escape the Courtroom’. It’s just one of the events that is a joint-effort between the Friends of the Three Bears, and the Edith B. Ford Memorial Library.
Phyllis Motill, president of Friends of the Three Bears; and Shannon O’Connor, Edith B. Ford Memorial Library Director discuss the ways the two entities collaborate, how community involvement is quintessential to maintaining South Seneca’s growth, and what the future looks like.

What does the future of education look like in Seneca Falls? This year the Seneca Falls Central School District is undergoing a leadership change. Jeramy Clingerman will become superintendent of schools this summer, as longtime leader Bob McKeveny ends his career. The two were in-studio for a wide-ranging conversation about the transition process, and the future of education broadly.
This week’s Sunday Conversation dives into the work that one organization is doing to make communities in Cayuga and Seneca County better. It’s not an easy task – but it’s one that Diane Draheim and Marie Montgomery have embraced. Montgomery serves as Deputy Director for the agency; and Draheim as Seneca Programs Director. At this point, the organization is going through a re-branding effort. Now, the organization formerly known as the Cayuga/Seneca Community Action Agency, will be known as ‘CAP’. The two discuss that change, and what types of services are offered in the community. They also dive into the systemic changes that could make the biggest difference in both counties.
