Susquehanna SPCA opens new
shelter building, Shakespeare
at the Fenimore, more

Celebrate the opening of the Susquehanna SPCA’s new building. After three years of intense fundraising in the ShelterUs Campaign, the shelter is ready to welcome the community
to tour the new facilities, participate in a ribbon-cutting (reservations required) and meet the volunteers.
At 5082-5088 State Route 28 in the town of Otsego, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, July 17. Call 607-547-8111 or visit sqspca.org.

Enjoy a performance of “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged),” as presented by The Glimmer Globe Theatre. This 100-minute farce incorporates all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays (and many sonnets) with performances by local actors Michael Henrici, Danielle Henrici and Jason Francey. It includes some crude humor (the Bard was no saint) so parental discretion is advised. Performances will be held at the Lucy B. Hamilton Amphitheater and guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets. At Fenimore Art Museum, Cooperstown at 7 p.m., Thursday, July 15. Call 607-547-1400 or visit www.fenimoreartmuseum.org.

Come one, come all for an evening of high-flying fun at the circus. Best of all, it’s completely free, so bring your lawn chairs and have a fun night out. Sponsored by the Susquehanna SPCA and hosted at the Cooperstown Center on Phoenix Mills Road, Cooperstown. At 5 and 8 p.m., Friday, July 16.
Call 607-544-2600.

Runners, come out for a challenging 10K run, or the fun and easier 5K run to support a local community center—all part of the Route 20 Road Challenge. All participants will have the opportunity, after the event, to make their own ice cream sundae, courtesy of Stewart’s Shop. So have fun and treat yourself at the annual Sundae Run and Walk. Begins at Richfield Springs Veterans Club at 13 Lake St. in Richfield Springs. Registration is from 7 to 8 a.m. The 10K begins at 8 a.m., Sunday, July 18.
