Close Out Winter Carnival

The Doubleday Cafe’s Tim Searles, above,  prepares specialty grilled-cheese sandwiches made with goat cheese and elderberry jam at Grilled Cheese For A Good Cause at the Cooperstown Farmer’s Market Sunday evening; the Otsego 2000 fundraiser wrapped up the 51st annual Cooperstown Winter Carnival.  Behind him Jim Hoffmann, Cooperstown, gets a bowl of soup from volunteer Susanna Membrino . The event  featured live music, ice cream and of course, grilled cheese made special by many area eateries.  In inset photo, Winter Carnival Committee chairman Rich McCaffery, right, congratulates  Katie Marvel of Oneonta and her boyfriend,  John Janitz, Jr. of Fly Creek, on receiving a $500 check for finding this year’s Winter Carnival medallion at Council Rock.  The presentation was made at Cooperstown Distillery; the medallion hunt is sponsored by The Freeman’s Journal & Hometown Oneonta. The couple plans on going out to a nice dinner to celebrate. (Ian Austin/
