On the edge of downtown Geneva, next door to Beef & Brew, a winter tradition is taking shape. A team of volunteers is putting the finishing touches on the 5th Annual North Seneca Rail Jam. It’s a snowboarding competition organized each year by Joe Marone, the owner of the restaurant Joe’s Hots. A year after he opened his business, one of his customers suggested the event.

You may have noticed purple ribbons around downtown Geneva. Staff members from Family Counseling Service of the Finger Lakes and Safe Harbors of the Finger Lakes spent part of Tuesday morning handing out flyers and tying purple ribbons around downtown Geneva.
