The 14th Annual Ride for Missing Children, sponsored by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, will be held on Friday, May 16, 2014. More than 300 cyclists will ride 100 miles through Monroe County in honor of National Missing Children’s Day.
Along the route they will stop at several area schools in Gates, Greece, Penfield, Irondequoit, Brighton, the City of Rochester and Webster to bring prevention education messages to children.
Each day 2,200 children are reported missing in the United States. The mission of The Ride for Missing Children is to spread awareness about the plight of missing children, share abduction and exploitation prevention education materials with children and to raise funds for agency services.

Household Hazardous Waste Collection
The Monroe County Department of Environmental Services (DES) and the Town of Webster, Town of Penfield and the Village of Webster have joined forces to hold an appointment-only Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection on Saturday, April 26, 2014. This collection will take place at the Penfield Department of Public Works, 1607 Jackson Road, from 7:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Most HHW (paint, flammables and other chemicals from home-use) is safe when used and stored properly. When they become unwanted and are disposed of improperly, these household wastes can become environmental hazards.
To ensure safety and reduce waiting times, appointments are required at all HHW collections. Appointments for this HHW collection will be accepted until April 18th. To schedule an appointment, Webster residents should call 872-1443 (Monday thru Thursday, 7:00 a.m.–3:30 p.m.), Penfield residents can call 340-8710 or go on-line to http://www.monroecounty.gov/hhw to schedule your appointment. This Household Hazardous Waste collection is open to all Monroe County residents. Waste from businesses will not be accepted.
If you have any questions about your town government, please feel free to contact me during regular business hours at (585) 872-7068; or email me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org
