The Freeville Community Council (FCC) has a special–and very busy–role in the village. Funded in part by grants from United Way, this volunteer group organizes Freeville’s summer picnic, winter pot-luck dinner, annual village yard sale, Halloween Harvest Fun Day, Spring Crafts Day, and our popular Summer Recreation Program for school-age children. It also supports a series of presentations on Freeville’s history and contributes to other projects, such as this website, a display case for historical items, and refreshments for community events.
In addition the FCC provides financial support for the local Food Pantry, maintains the Main Street flagpole and bulletin board, and makes informational “Welcome” packets for new residents. In 2015 the FCC initiated the annual Freeville Village Photography Contest.
