Congratulations to Tiny Miss Colonial Days -A Lindley Resident

I haven't seen anything in the Leader about the girls who were selected as winners in their age group for the very competitive Colonial Days Queen contest.
Lindley was represented by at least 2 young ladies -Becca Roeie and her little sister Sarra Renay Cramer . They are the daughters of Christina (Christy) Cramer and grand-daughters of Don and Cheryl Cramer of River Road ,Lindley.
Pictured is Becca who received a medal for participating in her age group and 5 year old Sarra who was crowned Tiny Miss Colonial Days. Congratulations -girls --Good work. . There certainly was a large group of young ladies competing. It is no easy task for the girls to take part in the contest. If there were others from Lindley,please send me their names and photos so we can post them. Hopefully, the Leader will publish the names of the other winners-because I didn't get them. . Crowning the new 2010 Colonial Days Queen is the 2009 Colonial Days Queen-Audriana Marmuscak-daughter of Donna (Pierce) Ma…

County Rt.73 Bridge Award

At the Lindley Town Board meeting on Wednesday June 9,2010 ,County Legislator Robert Nichols (who represents the Town of Lindley at the County level)presented Lindley Town Supervisor ,Richard Biggio with a plaque representing an award to Steuben County Public Works Department for it's work on the 221 foot County Rt.73 bridge in Lindley in 2009.(See attached article).
The new 2 lane bridge replaced a long existing series of one lane bridges over the Tioga River in the hamlet of Lindley. 2 lane bridges at each end of the town (Presho and Lawrenceville,Pa.)have been present for many years. The new 2 lane bridge in the center of the town was a vast improvement for the area and was the first in 219 years. At the 220 year birthday party on Sunday,we learned that before bridges existed,a ford in the river was located just north of the series of bridges.
Mr. Nichols stated that receiving the award was quite an achievement as competition was highly competitive. The Lindley bridge was in com…

Birthday Celebration 220 years

We lucked out again weatherwise for activites at the Lindley Town Hall .

The severe Thunderstorms passed, the wind died down and the sun came out bringing much appreciated cooler temperatures.

A sizable group gathered there this afternoon (6/6) to wish the town a Happy Birthday and to send it forward into it's it's 221st year. How fast time flies!! Wonder what Colonel Lindsley would think about the changes.. .( enlarge the photo of the antique cars and note the 'earth movers' on the hill in background. ) The interstate is coming -about 2015!!!) Remember the settlers in 1790 had to come by boat or walk along the banks of the Tioga river.... We have come a long way!!!

Several of the cast of characters from the 1991 video of the Re-enactment Lindsley's arrival in the Town Of Lindley on June 7th ,1790 were present to relive the great time that they had making the film.

As usual, members of the audience found the film informative ,interesting and were impressed with the doc…
