Five Things About My Hometown

Even though I moved from there at the age of 14, I still consider Penn Yan, NY (Bluff Point, really) my hometown. So:

1. Penn Yan is in the Guiness Book of World Records for making the world's largest buckwheat pancake.

2. There are small wineries all over the region.

3. In the fall all you have to do is go outside and you can smell the ripe grapes on the vines.

4. Penn Yan is the Yates County Seat and it's small enough that it only needs one small high school.

5. There are many Mennonites that live there and I grew up thinking every town had hitching posts in front of the stores so they could tie up their horse and buggies.
