Patronize Your Local Businesses


It's been nice to see people out walking, biking, boating and enjoying the warm weather over Memorial Day weekend. As businesses anxiously await their turn to open, Phase 2 of the reopening will take place this weekend. Some of the businesses included in this phase are storefront retailers, hair stylists, real estate agents and barbers. Life in the Finger Lakes magazine encourages everyone to patronize local businesses and the advertisers who support our brand.
