Thank you for your dedication to a project that provides a home for our great veterans!”

Every year in observance of Arbor Day, the Town of Greece plants a tree to both honor a member of the community and to promote the importance of trees for our environment. The Town of Greece has been named a Tree City USA every year since 1998 by continued commitment from Supervisor Bill Reilich, the Greece Town Board, and the dedicated members of our Tree Council.

Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich was joined by Greece Town Board Members Bill Murphy, Josh Jensen, and Diana Christodaro, Greece Receiver of Taxes Andrew Conlon, Greece Town Judges Brett Granville, Vince Campbell, and David Barry, and representative Aaron Baker from the office of Assemblyman Peter Lawrence for the Annual Town of Greece Arbor Day Memorial Tree Planting event this morning. This year’s tree was planted in memory of the late Eileen Coyle, founder and CEO of Monroe Ambulance. Many of Eileen’s family members, friends, and community members were present for the ceremony.

“Eileen was the founder and CEO of Monroe Ambulance and served in various leadership positions” said Supervisor Reilich. “She was very well-respected in her field and believed the best way to serve her customers was by providing well-trained professionals and the newest innovations in equipment. Everyone who had the honor of knowing Eileen knew that she had a zest for life and always made family her number one priority. She will be greatly missed in our community”.

The tree chosen by Eileen’s family to be planted in her honor was the Eastern Red Bud Tree. This beautiful tree boasts clusters of tiny magenta buds that bloom into pink flowers in early spring. Heart-shaped leaves 2-6 inches in length emerge a reddish color, turning dark green in summer and then a bright canary yellow in autumn. 

The Eastern Red Bud Tree was planted on the Greece Town Hall Campus near the Kids Canyon Playground. This location was chosen by Eileen’s family because they knew it held a special place in her heart, as she would often spend time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren in that area.

Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich and members of the Town of Greece Youth Board are pleased to announce the date for the Jerry J.

Additionally, Jerry served as Town Councilman from 1998 until 2009 and as Deputy Supervisor from January 2014 until his untimely passing in July of the same year. Proceeds collected from the Food Truck Rodeo will go towards the Jerry J. Helfer Youth Engagement Scholarship.

This morning, Supervisor Bill Reilich was joined by Greece Town Board Members Mike Barry, Josh Jensen, Bill Murphy, and Diana Christodaro, Greece Receiver of Taxes Andrew Conlon, and local Chick-fil-A Owner Alan Taylor and many of his family members, friends, and staff for the ribbon cutting ceremony announcing Chick-Fil-A is open for business! A crowd gathered to celebrate the grand opening, including all of the people who have been camping out these past couple days in hopes of winning free Chick-fil-A meals throughout the year. A constant flow of people were coming through both the restaurant line and drive-thru lanes for their first Chick-fil-A meal in Monroe County.

This Georgia-based fast food chain is located at 2140 West Ridge Road in Greece and includes two drive-thru ordering lanes and a two-story playground for children. The 5,056 square foot restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor seating, is open 6:30am – 10:00pm Monday through Saturday, and serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. More than 120 people have already been employed, and more could be hired depending upon demand.

Chick-fil-A prides itself on fresh food preparation, parenting-friendly menus, and environmental sustainability. Many of their items are hand-prepared daily, including hand-chopped salads made throughout the day, hand-breaded chicken, and hand-spun milkshakes. Owner and Greece resident Alan Taylor plans on giving back to the community by partnering the local franchise with area charities.

 “I was honored to join Chick-fil-A representatives for the ribbon cutting ceremony of this highly-anticipated business” said Supervisor Reilich. “I am always excited to help bring new businesses to the area, and I was very pleased when the Town of Greece received an application from Chick-fil-A. I recognize that they could have established their business anywhere in Monroe County, but chose to establish in the business-friendly Town of Greece. I am incredibly proud that they chose our Town, and wish owner and Greece resident Alan Taylor and his team great success! I am delighted to declare on behalf of the Greece Town Board and all Greece residents that April 12, 2018 is Chick-fil-A Day in the Town of Greece!”
