CNY VOLUNTEER FAIR
More than 40 local non-profits and volunteer organizations participate in the yearly CNY Volunteer Fair at DestinyUSA. The CNY Volunteer Fair is a great event for the organizations to discuss what opportunities are available. Great event for students looking volunteer opportunities to earn service credit and for seniors or the general public inquiring about ways to engage in their community. Held yearly the third Tuesday of September since 2010.
CNY VETERANS PARADE
Assemblyman Magnarelli hosts the annual CNY Veterans Parade and Expo which is held the
Saturday before Veterans Day at the NYS Fairgrounds. The purpose of the event is “Thanking Our
Veterans” of every generation and conflict. The one and one-half hour long parade features more than 90
veterans and military organizations from throughout Central New York and beyond. The parade is based on
the old-fashioned military style parades that featured military vehicles, local military units, Veterans of Foreign
War Posts and American Legions. The Expo, held in the Center of Progress building, features displays with a
special emphasis on military history, local companies, and local organizations helping present military
personnel or veterans. Held yearly the Saturday before Veterans Day since 2008.
Prior to session, Assemblyman Magnarelli meets with labor organizers and union
leaders to hear their concerns and requests. The annual breakfast is a great
opportunity for Assemblyman Magnarelli to focus on labor concerns as he starts
legislative session in Albany.
Community Information Meetings
After the governor releases his budget proposal, Assemblyman Magnarelli
hosts four local Community Information Meetings to give the public an
idea about what is in the budget as well as to hear their concerns about
proposed legislative issues prior to voting in session. The Community
Information Meetings are usually held in February and March at the
Cecile Center, Van Buren Town Hall, Geddes Town Hall and Lincoln
Paper-Shredding and E-Recycling
Several times throughout the year, Assemblyman Magnarelli partners with
community organizations to hold paper-shredding and e-recycling events
free to the community. This is a wonderful way to help protect our
environment, and a much needed resource for our community.
