Annie Zygarowicz served on the Board of Directors of the Cayuga Lake Scenic Byway, Inc. when she brought us the idea to develop a program for children to learn about the natural, cultural and historic assets surrounding Cayuga Lake. The Board loved the idea and even after Annie left the Board, we worked with her to create the Guidebook featuring her KIDS CAYUGA LAKE.
