A roughly 400 square foot section of the roof at center of the store is going to be raised to create a larger second story. Owner Shannon Carscallen says the change is necessary because “the store is just too small to do what we want to do.” The new area will become an educational center where they will put on wine tastings, scotch educational forums, and other classes. “We want the community to be able to take part in some of the things we are going to do up there,” she adds.

Page 7 Checking Out The Tunes & Other Stuff In Ellicottville By Robby & Sherman Wilkens The beautiful sunshine of last weekend has continued on to this week. Now, as we enter May’s second weekend, we may not be floating in SUN & FUN, which has been enhancing Ellicottville’s Spring Time. Last weekend’s Ya Gotta Regatta was a real hit because of the wonderful weather we just experienced and the April snow that kept Holiday Valley open until mid April. That snow added to our creek and river levels, plus the wonderful sunshine, made this year’s Ya Gotta Regatta..... After being located for the last three years at the Church of Christ on Elizabeth St, the Ellicottville Farmers Market will be moving to its new location on the front lawn of the Ellicottville Town Hall. Organizers felt that although the old location was more than adequate, it was a little off the beaten path and the Town Hall corner location would be much more visible to vehicle and pedestrian traffic. The Ellicottville Farmers Market is sponsored and managed by a local organization known as REAP which stands for Rural Enterprising Association of Proprietors. REAP is a non-profit corporation created 27 years ago by a group of southern tier New York farmers who were looking for ways to get their farm products directly onto the tables of local consumers. In recent years, being able to buy fresh produce and other products straight from local farms has gained popularity as more and more people become better educated and aware about the advantages of buying fresh and eating healthy. REAP was at the forefront of this trend and has a system of farm market management in place which is second to none. Three years ago, when the Ellicottville See MARKET page 9 Honor Society Salutes Students Awards Dinner in Olean Tributes National Honor Society Students from 12 Schools in County By, Nicholas Pircio WPIG, 95.7 FM “Truly amazing” is how guest speaker University President Sister Margaret Carney of St. Bonaventure University described the accomplishments of National Honor Society students at the 42nd Annual Recognition Dinner held on May first at the Premier Banquet Center in Olean.

Sister Margaret reflected on the values of character, scholarship, leadership, and service which are espoused by the National Honor Society. She shared the stories of two persons who possessed these attributes, saying they, “Really transformed the world, and for the second of them, even (helped) create this region of western New York.” The first role model, John Harrison, solved the biggest technical See HONOR page 9 Summer Music Festival : July 5-7, 2013 : Ellicottville, NY
