New BCC Board Members for 2018:
The BCC welcomes Kristin Van Ormer, Ellen Fairbank and Karyn Scott to our Board of Directors!
With a history spanning more than six decades, the BCC is situated in the hamlet of Brooktondale, NY, near Cornell University and Ithaca College in the heart of New York’s Finger Lakes region. It serves as a vibrant social center to residents of the hamlet as well as the surrounding Town of Caroline, hosting many volunteer-led social, recreational, educational, and charitable activities. The Center has two indoor facilities, each with its own kitchen and meeting rooms. In the main building, a large multi-purpose space hosts occasional town meetings as well as indoor recreational events like table tennis, Wii, and community movies. On the tree-surrounded grounds of the BCC, children enjoy a playground and large grass-covered space for outdoor concerts and athletic activities. The BCC also has a regulation-sized asphalt-covered basketball court, and a community-maintained perennial garden.

BCC Bylaws Update:
The BCC Bylaws Committee, a community group formed by Peggy Dunlop and Jeremy Richards, recently completed an updated version of the BCC Bylaws to reflect new laws governing non-profits in New York as well as a variety of other updates. The BCC Board unanimously endorsed the changes at our December 2014 Board meeting, and the new Bylaws were unanimously approved at the Corporation’s January 2015 Annual Meeting.
