    Hello, I have been active in some of the other events and groups here in Ithaca.
    I live in Syracuse and would be interested in starting this event in Syracuse.
    It is such a great event and opportunity for the community to come together.

    Glad you dig it! I bet Syracuse would be a great place to try holding an event like this. All we did before we started was put up fliers and hold a meeting, to find other people to help make it happen. That’s where our core group of volunteers came from – we’ve been going strong ever since!
