Dundee Area Health Improvement Project

Our Town Rocks!   Check out our web site 

Did you know that people who live in thriving communities are actually healthier than people who live in communities that are not doing as well? We hope that by now you have heard about the exciting new project that we are working on in the Towns of Barrington and Starkey and the Village of Dundee. We are trying to improve the health and well-being of the residents in the area by finding ways to help the whole community grow and prosper.

The Grand Opening of the Bright Red Bookshelves in the Barrington/Starkey/Dundee "neighborhood" took place Jan. 12 at Martini's ShurFine and Classic Cafe.  The Bright Red Bookshelf is a project of Our Town RoCKS.  It is designed to give all children in the neighborhood access to books by recirculating gently used children's books back into the community free for families to keep.  Community members can support this effort by contributing gently used children's books for infants, toddlers, and beginning readers at collection sites at Servu Credit Union, Dundee Headstart, Dundee Presbyterian Church, Martini's ShurFine and the Classic Cafe.

The Mitten Tree




We want to thank everyone who made our Mitten Tree project a huge success.  Over 500 hats, mittens and scarves were donated this year.  Items were given away 12/2 in Penn Yan at Star Shine, 12/10 at Dundee's Touch of Christmas and to the Christmas for the Needy program. 

In order to do more, we need your help. We need to find out what you already like about your community and what you think is missing or could be improved. We would also like to know more about your talents and your skills.

This project is made possible by the Greater Rochester Health Foundation
