Ontario County residents have so much to be thankful for this holiday season. We live in a county blessed with fertile farmland, breathtaking lakes and diverse natural scenery. We have institutions that showcase our diverse history and culture. We live in caring communities that give us a firm sense of place and identity. Indoors and outside, we have so many ways to enjoy our area with friends and family, from exploring wineries and breweries to skiing and hiking. Let us remind you of all these riches.

National Adoption Day
On Friday, November 18, 2016, we celebrated National Adoption Day at the Ontario County Courthouse. There were abundant smiles to be found at this happy event. Congratulations to the families and children who were "officially" united on this day.
"National Adoption Day is a national, collective effort to raise awareness of more than 100,000 children in foster care waiting for permanent and loving families. Since its inception, this annual, one day event has made the dreams of nearly 58,500 children come true. In 2015, approximately 4,000 youth in foster care were adopted by their forever families over the 16th annual National Adoption Day Celebration." ~ courtesy NationalAdoptionDay.org
