I went to SweetFrog Frozen Yogurt recently while doing errands. There were a variety of flavors of frozen yogurt available for self-serve, including mango and cookies and cream.
I chose to get a mix of cookies and cream and cake batter. Then I added brownie bites, mini MnMs, hot fudge and gummy bears, to cookies, sprinkles and caramel. I literally cannot fit how many options there were into this review. Definitely a place to check out when in Oneonta.

William Moody and Ellie Hotaling accepted their Rotary awards Tuesday, July 6, during a ceremony at The Otesaga Resort Hotel.

The Cooperstown Rotary Foundation announced the winners of two scholarships for 2021 graduates during a ceremony Tuesday, July 6, at The Otesaga Resort Hotel.

Cooperstown Central graduate Ellie Hotaling is the recipient of the Catherine Davis Black Scholarship.

William Moody, an Oneonta High School and BOCES graduate, is the recipient of the Michael Mayne scholarship.

Moody and Hotaling were acknowledged at their high schools’ commencement ceremonies and received the $1,200 scholarships at the Rotary Club’s luncheon.

The Catherine Davis Black Scholarship award was created in 2015 in memory of Catherine Black, who was a charter member and a founder of the local Rotary Club’s tax-deductible charity.

Black was the first female president of the Cooperstown Rotary Club and went on to be one of the first female district governors. Since Black had a special interest in early childhood education and music, the scholarship criteria stipulates the recipient should be planning to pursue a career in one of those areas, as well as having demonstrated the Rotary tenet of “Service Above Self” by volunteering and contributing to their community.

Concert series to return with Oshima Brothers

Concert series to return
with Oshima Brothers

By GREG KLEIN • Special to www.AllOTSEGO.com

The Oshima Brothers, Sean, above, and Jamie, said they enjoyed their previous concert in Cooperstown and look forward to playing Saturday, May 22.

The last time the Oshima Brothers were in Cooperstown, they played as the opening act for Caitlin Canty at the Otesaga Resort Hotel and it was a show they said they will never forget.

“It was a beautiful place,” Sean Oshima said during a phone interview the brothers did with Iron String Press on Friday, May 14. “I remember the magnificence of that place.

“I remember the last time we played the show in Cooperstown, we were the opening act, so we played a shorter set before the set from the main artist,” he continued. “They crowd was so great, we ended up playing an encore, which doesn’t usually happen when you are the opening act. It was special.”

Sean and his brother, Jamie, will return to Cooperstown and the Cooperstown Concert Series for a return performance.The show will take place at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 22, in The Otesaga’s ballroom.

It will not only be the first concert series show in more than a year, because of the coronavirus pandemic, but it will also be the brothers’ first show “back on the road.”

“We’re so excited to be back,” Sean said. “We have played a few shows in Maine, but this is the beginning of us getting back to touring.”
