A native New Yorker, Amy has lived in the Finger Lakes area for more than 30 years. She runs her public relations business, Amy Blum PR, from her suburban home, representing a variety of local through national and international arts, culture, and business clients and events. Amy loves writing, reading, music, and social media, and finds the outdoors (and photographing it) to be therapeutic for her brain after a day of sitting at her computer.

She continues to find wonderful places and experiences in the Finger Lakes to share with her husband, friends, and out-of-town guests. She has fairly good success in keeping summer plants flowering over the winter. Not bad for someone who grew up living in an apartment in New York City.

For transparency's sake, she's the marketing/public relations consultant for Friends of Ganondagan.

It’s All Fun & Games in February at Ganondagan

Sunday, January 21, 2018 10:00 AM by Amy Blum

For anyone staying home during the February school break, Ganondagan in Victor has LOTS to keep you—and your family—occupied and having fun!

As a lead-up to its ever-popular annual Native American Winter Games on Saturday, February 24, Ganondagan is hosting a Native American Winter Fun Week from 10am to 4pm Tuesday through Friday, February 20-23. There’s something different every day, and it’s all free with admission to the Seneca Art & Culture Center, except for the special “Furry Friends & Tales” workshop on Wednesday. Games and workshops take place at 11am and 2pm, and Make & Take activities at 10am and 3pm. Daily “Trade Game” is at 1 pm. Some activities have age requirements, so be sure and check details online.

In a private, secluded area off Townline and Murray Roads in Victor, Ontario County lies 100 magnificent acres of privately owned land. For 362 days a year, it is a quiet residential area. But for three days every year since 1990, this “NEIGH-borhood” transforms into an equestrian competitor’s paradise—and spectators can witness the entire competition from just feet away.
