How did you hear about our site? I knew about it prior....It is a very informative website!
Your comments: My husband, Ron and I moved from Cazenovia to this lovely village in July of 2014. I am so thankful for all of the kindnesses shown to us by those we have encountered. We were so pleased when Mayor Parkhurst and her husband welcomed us with a visit and a lovely cookbook relative to DeRuyter! We just want to say how much we enjoyed the beautiful "snowflakes" on the streets and we were so thrilled to have them "lighted" for so long! Is there a reason why there is not a lighted tree on the green behind the "Staley" town complex? I was just curious. Once again, thank you all for your kindness! We LOVE DeRuyter and are so happy that we chose this place to finish out our lives....

How did you hear about our site? Searching for DeRuyter
Your comments: I am approaching my 94th birthday this Sept. and my parents were building our camp on the East side of the Lake in 1920. My parents were Louie and Esther Elmore, my siblings Jack and Ruth. Our neighbors at the time were the Jim Brown Family and the Walkers. We had our camp until early 1970's. My siblings graduated from DeRuyter High School in 1936. My sister Ruth graduated college from Cortland Normal (SUNY Cortland) My aunt and uncle Fred and Maude Briggs and children Alice and Carlton had A dairy farm, Briggs Dairy Farm on East Lake Rd in DeRuyter. I'm living in Birmingham MI and Chapel Hill NC. Myself and my family have such great memories of DeRuyter, especially family time at the lake. Let me know if anyone has any questions from that era I would love to rack my brain. Jane Elmore Jensen

Your comments: My fondest memories of living in DeRuyter are riding horses all over the country side with my friend Carol and Sue. Seems so long ago. Take a drive through at times not living that far away. The house I grew up in is no longer there but wonderful family members still reside on the property. So nice looking at the older pictures and reading about folks such as Ken Barlow, Alek Narsasian and others.

Your comments: My Grandmother Cooper lived in DeRuyter when I was a child. We used to visit every other Sunday. I grew up in Oxford and got married and we moved to DeRuyter when my children were small. We lived there 15 years and then moved south. I recently visited my son who lives in DeRuyter. Walking down those streets brought back so many memories. I felt so at home. If I had to do it all over again, I would have stayed put.

I have many great memories of DeRuyter and my childhood spent there. Wonderful place to raise children. It has that small town feel that you usually just see in the movies. Visit as often as I can.

Your comments: Lived in DeRuyter until 1964, went to school from kindergarten through the 10th grade. So many of my teachers were just great ones and gave me such a good educational foundation--later I went into teaching too! My late brother, Bill Wheeler, lived in DeRuyter all of his life except for a short time in the army. I live in Oklahoma now, but still have many fond memories of life in DeRuyter. My first job was at the Red & White grocery store run by Bob Rowe. Those were the days! Thanks for the good website too. B. Wise

Your comments: I grew up in DeRuyter but now I am in SC. I miss the small town charm, and the beautiful scenery. I visit as often as I can, and if it weren't for the snow, I'd probably move back. My grandparent's are Bill and Gloria Middleton. They have that wonderful Armed Forces Tribute up on Mariposa Road. I'd recommend visiting it, they put a lot of heart, sweat and time into it. DeRuyter, NY is the perfect setting for a best selling novel, and maybe one day will be. God Bless it.

Your comments: In love with your town. I live in South Jersey, and did love it. Taxation is killing me. Visited cousin Linda in DeRuyter. What a town! Linda's house is a block from the fairgrounds. We went . Car show and BBQ. Fantastic. The grounds rival those of large towns and counties. I loved my visit and might transplant. You people should count your blessings.
