Colden Elementary School principal Marcole Feuz and 5th grade teacher Lynne Loomis led an interactive presentation on the program Playworks. “The four core values of the Playworks program are respect, inclusion, healthy play and healthy community,” said Loomis. Teachers who completed the Playworks training are equipped to provide interactive ways to help students learn in and outside the classroom.

Godard Memorial Hall How many of us have attended an event at the Godard Memorial Hall? Ever wonder how the hall got its name? In 1901, Calista Godard contracted with L. J. Shuttleworth to build a large fireproof building to be devoted to religious, scientific and educational purposes, and when completed, it was to be presented to the Village of Springville. The building was to have a seating capacity of upwards of 1,000 people. The Godard Memorial Hall was erected on the corner of Franklin and Mechanic Streets in the year 1902. It measures 50 by 100 feet; the floor is on an incline from the lobby to the stage. Across the north

Revisiting and Reliving The Great Race

This upcoming Monday is an important anniversary in automotive history, as the date marks 110 years since the beginning of the 1908 Great Race that took participants from New York City to Paris over a 169-day span. And as many in this community know, the race has quite the local connection with Springville native George Schuster winning that race by arriving in Paris on July 30 behind the wheel of the Buffalo-built Thomas Flyer automobile. In the event, Schuster’s team went headto-head against five other teams from Italy, France and Germany — all of which took off from Times Square in what would become the longest automobile competition in history.

What a wonderful idea that Calista Godard had, back in 1902 to build and donate the building for the Village— she wanted the hall to be used for the higher education of the young people and it has been! She died on Sept. 28, 1904, and in her obituary, it says that she was the oldest of 10 children and was born on July 8, 1822. Her mother died in 1846 and she and her father came to live in See A Look Back page 4

Fresh Floral and Gift Company Offers Event Decorating and Much More By Carlee Frank

Fresh –it brings to mind watermelon in the summertime and linen hanging in the breeze. However, it doesn’t just describe fruit and laundry –it can also be defined as new or different, which aptly describes Fresh Floral and Gift Company at 27 East Main Street. Opened by mother and daughter duo Mary James and Casie Sweeney in 1999, Fresh is an always-evolving company. Originally a boutique called Rhapsody’s on Main, within the last 10 years, they have also become a floral designer, balloon artists and wedding and event decorators. “People always say, ‘You’re always changing,’ but I say you have to change –you have to stay fresh, and keep it a little bit exciting and a little

different,” James said. A year and a half ago, they became “Fresh” and added the taglines Floral and Gifts, and Wedding and Events. James and Sweeney first became balloon artists because, James said, it was something she always wanted to do. In quick succession, they learned the art of drapery and received advanced floral designation at the Floral Design Institute of Portland, Ore. “We had brides coming in looking for the whole package –they wanted us to do their linen, their draping, their lighting and their floral,” Sweeney said. “So, instead of giving that business away, we decided to incorporate.” Spurred on by popular demand, James and Sweeney learned the industry and have now decorated hundreds of

weddings ranging from local to destination, and nontraditional to 7-day Indian weddings with 600 guests. However, weddings are not their only strong suit.

In case of a gift-related emergency on the day of your special event, the Fresh Floral and Gift boutique is full of amazing items, which also appear on the online store. Fresh sells denim, shoes, jewelry, candles, baby gifts, insulated glasses and much more. Sweeney said their style is eclectic and trendy, but sometimes reflects their sense of humor. “We think laughter is the best medicine, so a lot of the stuff we sell is funny. If you don’t know what to give somebody, give them a laugh,” Sweeney said. Fresh really does have something for everyone –and this is no accident. James mentioned their main focuses are to stay on trend and to serve their customers well. Many customers request products or simply inspire new items in the boutique. The boutique also features food from Edible Crush Catering by Erin Horton that customers can order and enjoy. On Mother’s Day, they will be partnering with Horton to bring Springville

a high tea celebration in the Springville Event Center. There will be lunch, gifts, music and lots of bonding. Fresh Smart Café and local photographer Elizabeth Palette will also join in on the celebration. “Hopefully we’ll get some three generation photos, maybe even four –you never know,” James said. The event will feature beautiful props constructed by James’s husband, Craig Bond. He also builds the props for the Fresh Wedding and Event business, such as chuppahs, arches and 8-foot hoops with swings for couples to pose for photos. There is no design, idea or business venture too challenging for James and Sweeney. Whether it be the booming wedding business or their cozy boutique, they are passionate about their work. “We are meeting new people all of the time, we learn so much and just make so many new friends,” James said. Stop by Fresh Floral and Gift Company on Main Street or peruse their website to learn more. You can also stay up to date on events with their Facebook page. Boutique hours are Monday-Friday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. 3 p.m., and by appointment for wedding consultation.

Great Race Continued from front page

Buffalo to Halifax that day, another group of antique automobile drivers will embark on a more symbolic journey. “Since 2018 marks the 110th anniversary of the original Great Race from New York to Paris, something special will also be happening,” Mahl said in December. “A group of us will be starting in New York City at Times Square and arriving in Buffalo on the 23rd. We will then be departing from the starting line that morning as well, however, we will be going west for the Eiffel Tower in Paris, covering the 13,000-plus-mile original 1908 route across three continents.” The itinerary includes arriving in the Oakland and San Francisco area on July 5. However, organizers announced this month the second leg in Asia and Europe has been postponed due to instability in Asia, most notably in North Korea, until events improve. Mahl will be driving a 1929 Ford Model A Roadster Pickup in the race, which has relaxed pace and is expected to cover about 300 miles per day with three

days of rest mixed in. A visit to Springville, including a tour of the new Heritage Building, is scheduled for June 22 before the official start in Buffalo the following day. “It will be a great experience comparing the world today with pictures and stories from the same spots Great Gramp passed through in 1908,” Mahl said. “It will also be much easier with things like paved roads and GPS.” For the special anniversary of the 1908 race this summer, highlights in the United States will include a joint start at the Pierce Arrow Museum in Buffalo; a classic lunch at the Plains Hotel in Cheyenne, Wyo., featuring menu items from the March 8, 1908 banquet in honor of the Thomas crew; a visit to the National Automobile Museum in Nevada, home of the restored Thomas Flyer; and various other stops. Mahl acknowledged he was fortunate to bond with his Great Gramp, who also lived in Springville before he passed in 1972 at the age of 99. George was inducted into the Automotive Hall of

Fame in Detroit in 2010 for his racing accomplishments. “He was quite a guy, still driving at 95 and shoveling snow in the Western New York winters at 98,” Mahl said. “By that time, I was in my 20s and had heard the story (about The Great Race) many times. He also kept extensive notes as he was circumnavigating the globe, saved hundreds of original photographs and artifacts from the race, and even wrote a book with his memoir.” According to a press release from Alfred State, a visit by Mahl to its Wellsville campus in 2013 prompted the college to enter a modern version of the race. Each year since

2014, Alfred State has competed in the 2,000-plusmile controlled-speed endurance rally in a 1953 Dodge Power Wagon tow truck. A retired ship captain, Mahl devotes his time to The Great Race, having been closely involved with mentoring teams for the past several years in the competition’s X-Cup Division, which is designed for high school and college teams. A complete itinerary of the symbolic recreation of 1908 The Great Race from New York to Paris, including a daily schedule plus videos and news, can be viewed at 2018nytoparis. com.

Winter SPORTS Winter Olympics 101:

What’s New


By Carlee Frank

Welcome to the seventh week of a healthier you! This week, we’re diving into a sea of crystal blue water, standing under a tropical waterfall and listening to a babbling brook –yes, you guessed it, we’re discussing water. Hydration is the one of the most important functions in the human body. We can survive three weeks of total starvation, but only three to four days without water –and nearly a week in extraordinary situations (Duke University). Due to the fact that our bodies are comprised 60 percent of water, it plays a major role in our daily functions and survival. According to the Mayo Clinic, water keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints and protects sensitive tissues. Water also flushes out toxins, regulates sleep and improves concentration (CNN). Dehydration, on the other hand, leaves you exhausted and foggy. Surprisingly, roughly 20 percent of our daily water intake comes from food, and the other 80 percent must be gained from liquid consumption. Foods abundant in water content also frequently contain high electrolyte counts and fewer calories, so they add to your ounce requirements but not to your waistline. According to Livestrong, foods with a water content of 90 percent or higher include cantaloupe, grapefruit, watermelon and strawberries. Other foods high in water content are raspberries, pineapple, oranges, squash and spinach. Even more interestingly, multiple studies have cited that people often times confuse thirst with hunger. Yes, it may seem like we would learn this distinction around age two, but the body cues for each discomfort are very similar. Mild dehydration and hunger can both exhibit those familiar empty-stomach growls, fatigue and headache. Due to the fact that our society encourages eating and very seldom discusses hydration, many individuals reach first for food and only later for water. This leads to overeating when we are simply thirsty, which can in turn lead to dehydration and weight. So, next time you hear the tell-tale growls, don’t reach for a ham submarine, but instead reach for a bottle of water. Now, how much should we drink in order to achieve acceptable hydration? The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine determined that men should drink about 15.5 cups of fluids per day and women should drink about 11.5 cups. These numbers may have shocked you, but I have many tips and tricks to help drink it all. First, invest in a reusable water bottle. Many come inscribed with measurements, progress marks and tally systems to help you track your ounces and remember how many full bottles you’ve consumed. Some of us like the gargantuan 34 ounce bottles that allow us to fill up only three times a day, whereas others like smaller bottles and more fill-ups. Either way, once you’ve purchased your bottle, onto the next step. Second, make a hydration plan. If your water bottle doesn’t indicate how much you should consume and by when, make those marks yourself. Write in Sharpie the hours in which you should refill your bottle, or mark hourly progress points down the length of the bottle. This will keep you accountable, remind you of your goals and relieve some of the pressure. Lastly, make it interesting. Add fruit or lemon to your water for taste, or drink tea instead of a morning coffee. You can even set up a treat system. If you drink all of your required ounces this week –which is a full seven days, not a five day work week –then take yourself to the movies or to your favorite restaurant! I guarantee you will feel a marketable difference. Your skin will be clearer, your sleep deeper and, yes, your bathroom stops more frequent –but your health is worth it! Next week, we will discuss a reader question. Have you always wanted to master exercise with a bad knee? Or maybe you want to meal prep but aren’t sure where to begin? Whatever the health and fitness dilemma, send it my way and I’ll do my best to solve it! Email me at Good luck and happy hydration!

Letter to the Editor

The Springville Area Chamber of Commerce board of directors wishes to thank the volunteers and sponsors that made our 2018 Awards Event possible. Emerling Dealerships sponsored our Community Service - Business and Community Service - Individual categories. Springville Times was our Student of the Year sponsor. And, Sheret Jewelers, the Business of the Year in 2017, sponsored this year’s Business of the Year. Chamber president Bill Gugino and village of Springville Mayor Bill Krebs introduced most of the award recipients, which included: Community Service - Individual (Joe Emerling), Community Service Business (LJ Grand Livery Stables), Nonprofit of the Year (Concord Historical Society), Small Business of the Year (Fiesta Bamba), and Business of the Year (Emerling Dealerships). Village of Springville Trustee Nils Wikman, last year’s Citizen of the Year, introduced this year’s awardee Kara Kane, while SGI High School Principal James Bialasik introduced Student of the Year MacKenzie Engel. The 4 Under Forty Recipients - Melissa Frank, Reed Braman, Jessica Schuster and Scott Kearns - were also recognized. There will be an additional event later this year to acknowledge their contributions to the community. All honorees received proclamations from NYS Senator Patrick Gallivan, whose local representative Karen Howard was on hand at the event. Our celebration of Springville on Feb. 3 welcomed more than 170 guests at St. Aloysius Hall. We express our thanks to the volunteers who staffed the door and bar area: Charles Weber, Scott Vaccaro, Jolene and Thomas Hawkins; Erin Horton and Edible Crush Catering, musicians from the Concord Historical Society, and Paul at St. Al’s for helping with our set-up. A very special “thank you” goes to Katie Krawczyk, partner and president of 19 IDEAS, who delivered the event’s keynote speech. She shared the story of how her full-service marketing company grew from a one-person shop to a 15-person enterprise, recognized by Business First as one of the fastest growing companies in Buffalo for two years in a row. Save the date for our next event, the Springville Craft Beer and Wine Festival on Saturday, May 12 from 4-7 p.m. at the Springville Volunteer Fire Department. Anyone interested in volunteering, the next event committee meeting will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 20 at 6 p.m. at B&B Homes, 14220 US-219, Springville. Thank you again to everyone involved for your support of the Springville a​ rea and b​ eyond and congratulations to our 2018 Award Winners. Sincerely, Springville Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors

The Latest and Greatest in Wedding Desserts

While wedding dress styles may change from year to year, and colors and flowers go in and out of vogue, treating your guests to a delicious wedding dessert never goes out of style. Indeed, few things about your big day may be more memorable to your guests than a unique, droolworthy dessert—especially when unexpected flavors, beautiful presentation and a variety of choices are at the top of your list! From the bridal shower to the big day, make sure each guest’s sweet tooth is satisfied, and don’t be afraid to incorporate your own taste and style into the selection. Perhaps the best part

of choosing wedding desserts is sampling, and Ellicottville’s new bakery, Cupcaked, provides many opportunities. Owners Anne and Scott Coe welcome you to their beautiful bakery at 22 Monroe Street, where they serve a wide variety of delicious treats and offer a full range of event planning services. Cupcaked is known for their incredible variety of delicious cupcakes; there are more than 30 different flavor combinations! Anne has taken cupcake baking far beyond simply chocolate or vanilla, as Irish Car Bomb, Maple Bacon, Mint Chip and White Russian are just a few of the unique flavors that Anne bakes. Customer favorites include Chocolate Peanut Butter as well as Raspberry Delight, which is vanilla cake with raspberry filling and raspberry buttercream frosting. These same flavors are echoed in Cupcaked’s wedding cake flavors, Anne explained: “Our almond raspberry and chocolate peanut butter are our two most commonly requested cakes!” Interestingly, wedding cake trends have shifted from the iconic white tiered confection that previous generations of brides served. “The traditional cake is going out of style for the majority of brides,” said Anne. “They are either doing full cupcake displays

and small ceremonial cakes or an assortment of dessert displays.” Katelyn Mueller, Catering Sales Director and Certified Wedding and Event Planner at Holiday Valley Ski Resort, has noticed similar trends in dessert preferences both last year and this coming year. “I would say 60 to 70 percent of our brides select tiered cakes, but more and more are choosing to have assorted dessert bars that offer a variety of pies, cookies and other petite desserts.” Indeed, this trend fits in with a larger trend for 2018: a mix of stations for the main meal instead of a traditional plated dinner to encourage a more social reception with plenty of mingling and fun. Why wait until the big day to get creative with desserts? The bridal shower is the perfect opportunity to serve a variety of tasty (and portable!) treats. “Wedding

showers are one of our favorite things to do—they are usually so creative and girly with tons of pink!” said Coe, who offers dessert displays and cupcakes for both the wedding day and the shower. According to her, mini cupcakes are a huge hit this year for bridal showers, but she’s also made cake pops—one of her favorite treats to make! The wedding cake (or dessert station) is the perfect opportunity to treat your guests, but also incorporate your own personal style and taste into one of the most memorable parts of the day. Dina DiPasquale of Dina’s at the ‘Mont caters weddings at HoliMont, where she loves to make the couple’s wedding cake a perfect expression of their personality and vision for the wedding. From tiered cakes to cupcakes to pies to cookies, DiPasquale understands that no two

weddings are the same, and neither are the desserts. This year’s trends include a simpler, more classic cake with buttercream frosting and simple floral or fruit accents, especially figs, which are the “it” fruit this wedding season. Of course, there are many factors to consider when

Swimming & Diving Team Begins Postseason Competition

By Coaches Ryan Dygert and Duane Boberg

Starting out the postseason was the ECIC B meet held at Maryvale on Jan. 27. Justin Buczek, Harley Maloy, Christian Safford and Jimmy Snyder were the Griffins who were taking part in the meet. Prior to the start of the meet, teams nominated athletes who showed dedication, sportsmanship, and perseverance to not only swimming and diving but as a regular practice in life as well. Jimmy was chosen as the recipient of the Carey Grant Award for this years meet. The foursome was able to come in 5th place in the 200 Medley Relay, followed by all swimming great times in the 50 yard freestyle. Harley was the lone swimmer for SGI in the 100 Freestyle and swam well. In the 500 Freestyle, Christian swam to a 4th place finish of all small schools. In the 200 Freestyle Relay, the boys once again took 5th place. Following the 200 Freestyle Relay was Jimmy in the 100 Backstroke which he placed 2nd in with a new best time. Justin then swam the 100 Breaststroke and took 3rd also getting a new best time. On Feb. 2, ECIC championships began at Sweet Home High School. Springville is classified as an ECIC “A” school, meaning it would be competing against other small schools from Erie County like East Aurora, Eden, Pioneer

and Starpoint. In the meet, the top 16 of each event score points. The diving portion was held on Friday night and for what is believed to be the first time ever, Springville was taking three divers to the meet. Wyatt Fuller, Dakota Schelble and Jackson Richert had all earned qualifying scores. The boys were able to dive a pretty solid night and see few mistakes in their diving. This resulted in Wyatt taking first place over Eden’s Ben Wilcox, while Dakota and Jackson took 5th and 6th, respectively. Dakota and Jackson earned qualifying scores for the Class B meet and for Sectionals as well! Following the success of the divers, Feb. 3 saw the swimming portion of ECICs. Starting off the meet was the 200 Medley Relay with the foursome of Zach Hughey, Blaze Schelble, Jon Boberg and Elliot Emley coming in fourth place with a best time by 3 seconds! In the 200 Freestyle, Eric Schweickert took 15th place with a class qualifying time. In the 200 IM, the Griffins were able to show off their depth with Jon, Blaze and Zach taking 2nd, 8th, and 9th in the event. In the 50 Freestyle, Elliot and Dominic secured points for the Griffs by finishing in 11th and 15th. Jackson, Wyatt, Connor Hughey, and Garrett Casey all also swam in the event as well. For the 100 Butterfly, Jon was the lone Griffin swimming and was able to manage a 5th place finish. In the 100 Freestyle, Elliot took 15th place while Dominic also swam well. Eric then followed suit and took 14th in the 500 freestyle while dropping over 8 seconds from his previous season best. The 200 Free Relay of Zach, Elliot, Dominic, and Jon took 3rd place by dropping nearly 5 full seconds from their season best. Springville was able to have a second relay in the event featuring Wyatt, Blaze, Dakota, and Jackson who had the 10th fastest time overall. Zach had a quick turnaround before his 100 Backstroke but still took 3rd place. Connor and Garret also swam the 100 Backstroke as well. Blaze was the lone Griffin in the 100 Breaststroke and was able to earn a best time and 9th place finish. Lastly, the 400 Freestyle Relay of Dominic, Jackson, Dakota and Eric also took 9th place overall. As a team, Springville finished third overall behind only East Aurora and Starpoint. Next we look forward to competing in the Class B meet on Friday, Feb. 9. SGI will compete with “medium sized” schools from all of Section 6 (Western New York).

SGI Coaches Corner Girls’ Varsity Basketball, Coach Gainey

The Varsity girls basketball team traveled to East Aurora last Wednesday night and lost 48-14. Despite the lopsided result the girls made marked improvement defensively. The girls held down All ECIC performer Emma Brinker to only 10 points. Unfortunately, costly turnovers and inconsistent offense led to the tough defeat. The girls dropped a disappointing non-league game to 7th ranked Eden by a score of 41-28 on Tuesday night. The girls had a challenging time dribbling through pressure and initiating offense once the girls crossed half court. Ivette Lewandowski played a strong all-around game with 16 points. Kelsey Zabawa was a rebounding machine, Sydney Rosati defended at an extremely high level, and Leah Frank provided excellent support on the baseline throughout the evening.
