As the temps continue to rise this month, it’s time to think spring and plan for two super fun races coming to Holiday Valley. On Saturday, May 12, the Happy Half makes its way to town once again, and aims to put a smile on everyone’s faces. Race organizers, who also run the EVL Half in the fall, emphasize that they want to help put the fun into running.

A Good Philo’snow’phy

By Louisa Benatovich, ECS Student Reporter

“Snow day.” When one hears those words, no matter the age, the heart lifts a little. The promise of no school or homework is enough to warrant a small “yippee” from even the most solemn student. In the United States, the snow day carries prolific weight. Sensationalized in movies, it is the day to sleep in, have snowball fights, and find your true love. It is a day that all students hope for; the day where anything can happen. On Friday, March 2, ECS parents received a 5:30 p.m. per Louisa. call with the news: school would be shut down. Ellicottville, known for its heavy snow and cold winters, usually braves the wintry weather—in fact, snow days at ECS are almost nonexistent—but this time was different. Rearing his ugly head, Old Man Winter ravaged every inch of western New York. Don’t drive unless necessary, the media pleaded, expect abnormally high winds. Ellicottvillians pushed on, driving to work, staying at school for musical rehearsal, finishing mounds of homework. No one expected to get the day off. As schools and universities around the area began to close, it became apparent that this weather might not be as manageable as was once thought. Like dominoes, power went out in most local homes, affecting many students. Thankful to have power, I watched the snow drifts climb higher and wondered how I’d make it to SAT Prep in the morning. When I received the snow day news, I must admit, I had mixed feelings: a strange brew of one part child-like excitement and 20 parts STRESS. I had so much weekend homework! Trying to change my pessimistic view, I decided to ask others how they felt

about this snow day. Maybe they had some insight that I had overlooked. After speaking to Crystal Wilder, middle and high school music teacher at ECS, I realized I had tunnel vision. More had been affected by the snow day than I had originally thought. “Normally, I would be very excited about the day off,” Wilder explained. “However, I (was) sad for many of our musicians across the county that will miss out on (the) weekend’s CCMTA All-County experience.” All-County is an annual two-day event where the area’s most talented musicians perform together in various instrumental and choral ensembles. Olean High School, this year’s venue, was shut down. Many were disappointed at the missed opportunity. “I (was) also concerned that we are losing a band rehearsal. We have a concert on Thursday,” Wilder continued. “On the other hand, it is nice being home relaxing with my family.” Her daughter Isabella, a 3rd grader, was “excited to stay home because she could read and play all day.” Ah, the optimistic eyes of youth. Abby Sonnenberg, a junior at ECS, had a less enjoyable experience. She was one of many in the area whose home had suffered a power outage. “It was absolutely terrible,” she recalled. “We had no power and our heat runs on electricity, so my family and I huddled in the living room with our wood stove for warmth.” Her family, like many others, were powerless for 16 hours. “It did make me appreciate the little things,” Abby admitted. “I had my family, my dog, and food. That’s all I needed. This world is so reliant on electricity. I could totally picture how the aliens would get us.” Carolyn Bauer, teacher

and yearbook advisor, echoed the feelings of the many staff members at ECS. “For me, snow days are about getting up when I want, not when the alarm clock tells me, which is nice,” she told me. “But I confess I always stress a little about all the things I was going to do with my students that now need to be moved around.” This stress is present in all classes, especially Regents math courses, which always suffer a time crunch at the year’s end. With this even sadder information, I wondered if I’d ever enjoy the snow day. The answer came much later as I sat in the ER, 24 hours after that fateful call. I glanced around, eyes clouded in tiredness, noticing all the waiting patients. Most had ice packs on arms and wrists, ankles and feet. I looked to the seat next to me, at my mother’s finger bent in an unnatural ‘Z’, and hoped a room would open soon. I find that my most philosophical thoughts strike me after witching hour, when the world is quiet and people are still. I looked at the picture Ginna Hensel had sent me, the one used above. The snow looked so gentle, resting daintily on each branch. It was hard to imagine this snow had cause unhappiness, pain, and stress. I realized that it was all about perception. Yes, this snow day had caused unhappiness for some, but it had also caused joy for others. I was thankful for the men and women up at the crack of dawn, clearing the roads. I was thankful for Dr. Mat at Olean General who popped that finger into place. Life is all about “buts” and “howevers”— the little words that are sandwiched by positive and negative. We must focus on the positive; a snow day is only as magical as you make it.

EVGV Trail Committee Prepares to Move Forward

The EVGV Trail Committee met this week to discuss their plans to move forward with the Ellicottville Great Valley recreational trail. Randy Glenn from Evans Insurance Agency did a presentation regarding insurance for trail center trail construction. Committee members Mark Alianello and Matt McAndrew met with Karl Northrup regarding clearing work that needed to be done at the Town Center. Alianello suggested that clearing and dropping trees needs to happen soon as not to disrupt the bat population; removal of small brush should start by the end of March. Per Northrup, machine rental is a Fecon head mounted on a track skid steer, and it would be needed for 2-3 days to complete the work, and Northrup would donate his time. Linda Barley was introduced as member of committee. The next meeting of the trail committee will be held on Monday, April 2 at 3:30 p.m. at Town Center. For more info, visit

Football Coaches React to New Sec. 6 Alignment

By Sam Wilson

The rise in merged football programs has left just four teams in Section Class D next season, presenting a unique challenge both to the teams left in the division and those jumping up to the C level. Just one merged program remains in Class D on the basis of its BEDS (Basic Education Data System) figures, Clymer/ Sherman/Panama, and will play against Salamanca, Cattaraugus-Little Valley and defending champion Maple Grove. Section 6 denied an appeal by Franklinville/Ellicottville to stay in Class D, after the sectional merger committee ruled it could not stay at that level under a “dominance” policy. Thus, the Titans will play in Class C South, bumping up along with Portville (just seven over the Class D cutoff of 229 with a BEDS number of 236) and two new merged teams, Randolph/ Frewsburg and Chautauqua Lake/Westfield. The new Class C South division includes F/E, Allegany-Limestone, Portville, Randolph/ Frewsburg, Falconer/ Cassadaga Valley, Southwestern and Chautauqua Lake/ Westfield. The seven teams play six league games and one non-league, while the four Class D teams play three home-and-home serieses with their league opponents and two nonleague games, starting playoffs in the semifinals in Week 9. F/E coach Chad Bartoszek said the move to Class C impacts his program’s scouting and scheduling to start with. “The initial reaction was not 100 percent against

it,” Bartoszek said, “just it’s going to create some new challenges... our comfortability with the league, different things like that are going to be challenged. Then we kind of just explored the reasons why. Why are we being moved up? What’s changing and I know the numbers issues with merged programs is going to be a big issue going forward, so I understand, I think that’s probably where we’re headed. We’re going to head to a place where there’s a lot of C schools and the D league is going to suffer for that. I understand that part of it, we’re not shying away from what we have in terms of our numbers.” He noted his 2017 team was particularly seniorladen, including four Big 30 all-stars set to graduate. So while the section cited the Titans’ four straight sectional championship appearances, one victory, and a high margin of victory in most regular season games, next year will mark a transition for F/E regardless of its class. “The timing is a little bit suspect just due to the fact that we’re losing a large number of players, a large number of seniors who were as talented as we’ve ever had,” Bartoszek said. “I guess when you use the dominance term, we have had success, but there are reasons for that success as well and it’s not specifically numbers. There’s two sides to the coin, but I do understand the section’s part and I believe this is probably where we’re headed. We’re going to head to a place where these merged programs are going to take 100 percent of their numbers and we’re going

to form a bigger C class and some of them are going to move up to Bs. “Having said all that, we’re going to be ready to play in the C division. It’s a tough division. It’s a good division. We’ve got a lot of local schools. What happens next year is up in the air still because it’s a one-year thing. There’s a little bit of unfamiliarity with the whole process just because it hasn’t happened to us before.” The only other instance of Section 6 declining a football merger was with Class C state champion Maple Grove/ Chautauqua Lake. But while those schools split rather than move to Class B, Bartoszek said Franklinville and Ellicottville didn’t consider ending their merger. “From the beginning it was always ‘what are we going to do together?’” Bartoszek said. “This program is going to stay together, the numbers just don’t bear out. We’ve worked as a program and as an administration and communities, we’ve worked really hard to put together a pretty good product and this program is going in the right direction. We just need to adjust to our new circumstances. The Ds have perennially been pretty tough, so going into the Cs there are going to be challenges in terms of some bigger sized schools. We’ve already been through some pretty tough gauntlets the last four years. We’re just going to have to get a little better and I think we’re going to be able to continue our success as long as our kids step up to the challenge during the offseason here and get better.”

Obituary Eugene P. Henderson 1929-2018

Eugene P. Henderson, 88, of 15 New Street, Hazel Hurst, passed away Saturday (March 3, 2018) at his residence. Born March 31, 1929, in Bradford, he was a son of the late Silas and Mary Transue Scott. On September 22, 1951, at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Mt. Jewett, he married Shirley "Pat" Schlopy who survives. Gene lived in Hazel Hurst for most of his life and attended Smethport High School and the Hobart School of Welding in Troy, Ohio. He also earned a degree in vocational education at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford. He served with the US Army in Germany. He was a welding instructor at the Cattaraugus-Allegany BOCES Center in Ellicottville and was selected as "National Teacher of the Year" by the American Welding Society. Previously, he had been named New York State Welding "Teacher of the Year" before receiving the national award. Upon receiving the award, it was stated that Mr. Henderson was nominated because he "consistently went above and beyond the duties of a welding instructor". Gene had been an adviser for the local chapter of the Vocational-Industrial Clubs of America for 20 years. During that time, he helped produce eight winners at the state level competition. He was an NRA member and belonged to the American Welding Society. He was also an avid, hunter, fisherman and outdoorsman. Surviving, in addition to his wife, are two daughters, Debra (Frank) Dawidowicz of Southington, CT and Patricia (Michael) Nordin of Hazel Hurst; a son, Steve (Diane) Henderson of Hazel Hurst; six grandsons, Todd, Adam and Evan Dawidowicz, Michael and Aaron Henderson and Daniel Nordin; three granddaughters, Melissa Munterich, Alyssa Geras and Abigayle Nordin; and 17 great-grandchildren. Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by two great-grandsons, Emmett and Gabriel Dawidowicz; a brother, Duane "Dewey" Henderson ; and a sister, Charlotte Speer. Friends will be received at the Cummings Funeral Home, Inc. in Kane, on Thursday from 2:00 to 4:00 pm and 7:00 to 9:00 pm. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Mt. Jewett at 9:00 am Friday with the Rev. Vincent Cieslewicz, pastor, as Celebrant. Burial, with military honors accorded, will be in Nebo Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to the Hazel Hurst United Methodist Church or the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation.

by Alafair Burke

A stunning domestic thriller in which a woman must make the impossible choice between defending her husband and saving herself. When Angela met Jason Powell while catering a dinner party in East Hampton, she assumed their romance would be a short-lived fling. To her surprise, Jason, a brilliant economics professor at NYU, had other plans, and they married the following summer. Six years later, Jason has become a cultural lightning rod, placing Angela near the spotlight she worked so carefully to avoid. When a college intern makes an accusation against Jason, and another woman, Kerry Lynch, comes forward with an even more troubling allegation, their perfect life begins to unravel. Jason insists he is innocent, and Angela believes him. But when Kerry disappears, Angela is forced to take a closer look—at both the man she married and the women she chose not to believe.

Letters to the Editor Dear Editor; On behalf of The Ken Brown 700 Club, we would like to thank all of those who contributed in so many ways to making our 18th Annual Fundraising Party a success. As a result of the funds raised through the luncheon, donations and our auction, we will be in a position to help out many local organizations again this year. We would particularly like to thank the management of Holiday Valley for once again allowing us to hold the event on the Yodeler Lodge Terrace. In spite of the weather, which turned quite raw at times, we had an enthusiastic crowd. The lunch could not have been possible without all the hard work of Vicky and Moose Brown of the Depot. We also want to thank our major donors who sponsored our luncheon – Cattaraugus County Bank, Hodgson Russ and Team Pritchard, ERA Realty. In spite of the cool weather, we served lunch to over 250 and, fortunately, many stayed after lunch for the auction. It was also successful again, thanks to the generous contributions from local businesses, our two ski areas and members of the public. Throughout the event, 50-50 draw tickets were sold and the winner pocketed $250! The beneficiaries of our fundraising will be the local organizations we plan on supporting. Last year we donated $9,000. Our donations in 2018 are expected to bring our total donations back to the community close to $80,000 since the humble beginning of the club 18 years ago, when Kenny Brown and nine of his friends decided to do their bit for our community. Last but not least we want to thank all of our members, not only for their financial contributions to the Club, but also for for the many hours they, and their friends spend each year organizing the party, serving food and drinks, and generally assisting in any way to make the event a success. The motto of the Club, “Help Us Help Others,” was exactly what Kenny Brown intended for the Club 18 years ago. It still describes the appeal the Club makes to this day. Thanks to everyone for helping us continue with that work. Anyone 70 years of age or older who would like to be a part of the organization should contact one of the members named below. The Ken Brown 700 Club Steering Committee Don Ames 244-1135 Werner Gerbes 945-2199 Ron Moro 699-2061 Ollie Hazard 699 -4091 Dave Jones 699-8335 Terry Mark 244-1684 PENGUIN PADDLE THANKS YOU! A basic Thank You is easy. A deep-seated, sincere Thank You, not so much. The support that the Lounsbury Adaptive Ski Program at Holiday Valley have received from the greater Ellicottville Community has been nothing short of miraculous. It is easy to be a supporter when the sun in shining, there is a gentle breeze and the skiing is good. Penguin Paddle Saturday arrived with warm temperatures, rain, a cloudy day and a minimum amount of skiers. But in the afternoon the people came! Penguin Paddle was supported by happy enthusiastic staff and friends, even people we’ve never met. You were all there for Lounsbury! Always have been and God-willing, you always will be. Thank you, once again. I hope we can continue to make a difference in people’s lives. Mary Ellen Racich Director Lounsbury Adaptive Ski Program Letter to the Editor We rented a house at HoliMont last week, Monday through Saturday. As you know, we woke up Friday to at least 16” of snow. I thought we’d have a difficult time getting to Holiday Valley or in to town. I was surprised to see the roads clear at 9 a.m. and in town, the DPW was already hard at work clearing downed trees and sidewalks. Living east of Pittsburgh, we are used to snow , however we would still be cleaning up. You can be proud of your Village’s workers and the efforts of your Road crews. Thank you for an enjoyable week.

Cattaraugus, Allegany Counties Showcased on Amazon in ‘Fireball Run’

Cattaraugus County attractions, and some in Allegany County, are enjoying some of the national spotlight in Season 10 of the television show “Fireball Run.” Episodes of the 26-episode adventure-travel series — which premiered on Amazon Video in January — spotlight the history and people of Western New York, with filming occurring locally in September of 2016. The village of Allegany, with Mayor Greg Pearl, volunteered to be the backdrop for the Green Flag Start location of Season 10, which coincided with Bonagany on Sept. 24, 2016. “Fireball Run” is best described as a contest, history and travel show combined. Filmed in real-time, the eight day, 2,000-mile journey of 40 driving teams as they receive several clues which, if solved, lead to rare. The race covered New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Connecticut and Massachusetts. The Seneca Salamanca Chamber of Commerce and the Cattaraugus County Tourism office brought together attractions in the county that could be featured, says Jacquie

Gardner, county tourism specialist. These locations included: • St. Bonaventure University’s Rare Book Collection, with a Medieval scroll manuscript from the 1300s written on 18 feet of sheep skin. • The Ischua Valley Historical Society and the Miner’s Cabin in Franklinville. • Della Moore, of Olean’s African American Center for Cultural Development, teamed up with the IVHS and captured one of the more emotional scenes of the show, when contestants were able to view and hold an extremely rare original trade agreement between slave owners. • The Hinsdale House dared contestants to be brave enough to enter the house and capture their bravery via a selfie. • The Allegany Library, where contestants were “locked up” in their vault. • Seneca Salamanca Chamber organized the locations of The Salamanca Rail Museum, Allegany State Park and the SenecaIroquois National Museum. Contestants got to be the conductor of the model train located in the Salamanca Rail Museum, climb all the way to the top of the Summit Fire Tower

in Allegany State Park, and touch a historically significant Wampum Belt in the Seneca-Iroquois National Museum. “Being able to view The Fireball Race through Amazon Prime gives our community an unprecedented opportunity for everyone around the globe to share the beauty and the rich history of our area,” said John Sheehan, executive director of the Seneca Salamanca Chamber of Commerce. Contestants stayed at Holiday Valley Resort, adding to the challenges with contestants going down the Mountain Coaster. While in Ellicottville, they also had to seek out the Trivial Pursuit House and snap a photo while in front. “Our involvement in the race not only increased the visibility of Cattaraugus County, but also with the relationships that were formed, we have already have seen positive results for the county,” Sheehan said. The series is distributed by Amazon online and is free for Prime members. The entire 10th season of “Fireball Run” is also available to download at

After leading their teams to 9-1 records in CCAA East-2 play and co-league championship, Ellicottville senior Elliot Bowen and Franklinville senior Sam Erickson earned co-MVPs to lead the postseason awards decided by league coaches. Eagles coach Dave McCann and the Panthers’ Jeff Haskell also shared co-coach of the year awards.

Two more Ellicottville seniors, Griffin Chudy and Austin Grinols, and two Franklinville seniors, Isaac Kopp and Darren Clark, made the first-team all-stars, along with Forestville senior Lewis Markham. Ellicottville junior Steven Rowland and Franklinville senior Brock Blecha made the second team, along with Pine Valley seniors Zach Mansfield and Trent

Mikalko and North Collins senior Brandon Zielinski. Honorable mentions included Cattaraugus-Little Valley senior Austin Baker, Ellicottville seniors Deric Leiper and Noah Stuve and Franklinville senior Dylan Burton. Pine Valley won the team sportsmanship award, represented by senior Zach Mansfield.

If you’ve never noticed a pond at the bottom of Yodeler, that’s because it’s there for this event and this event only! The pond is created from the huge mound of snow used for the Winter Carnival Snowbar. A Snowcat digs the hole, which is then covered with a tarp and the snowmaking system is used to fill it up.

water is cold to begin with, and surrounded by snow, the end result is an extrachilly makeshift pond, perfect for challenging those daredevils as they head down the hill on skis and try to skim across. You can sign up to ski across the ice-water filled pond or just cheer on the brave competitors—it’s a guaranteed good time either way. Registration is free and starts outside Yodeler Lodge at 11 a.m. (Kids under 18 must

have a parent signature; minimum age is 8 years old.) All participants get a one-day pool pass for the Holiday Valley summer pool complex. Pond Skimming starts at about 1 p.m. and prizes will be awarded for Best Skimmer, Best Costume, Best Kid and Best Splash. If that’s not enough, enjoy music, a minisnowbar with drink specials and a barbeque. For more info, visit

Celebrate the Season: Mardi Gras Must-Haves

It’s the feast before the fast: Mardi Gras! The literal translation of this French term is “Fat Tuesday,” the day of celebration before the start of Lent, the 40-day period of fasting and prayer before Easter Sunday. Even though Mardi Gras was Feb.13, here in Ellicottville, it’s celebrated at the end of winter during Winter Carnival Weekend! Make your own mask to wear to the Masquerade Party this Friday night and bake a delicious King Cake to celebrate Mardi Gras and the end of winter! Decorative masks are central to traditional Mardi Gras celebrations and date back to the 19th century when the first official Mardi Gras parade was held in New Orleans. Since Mardi Gras is traditionally a carefree celebration before the solemnity of Lent, the masks have always allowed revelers to have fun and express themselves anonymously. Continue the mischievousness of the masks by making your own this weekend! To get started, download

a mask template: https:// has some free templates to use. Once you have printed and cut out a template, cut out a rectangle of decorative fauxsatin fabric and a rectangle of felt that are slightly larger than the mask. Place a two-sided fusible interface between the two pieces of fabric (right side out) and iron the pieces together. Pin the mask template to the fabric and cut out the shape of the mask; use pinking shears to prevent fraying, if you like. Trace the eye holes on the felt side of the mask and carefully cut them out using sharp scissors. Apply Fray Check or a clear-drying craft glue to the cut edges to make sure they don’t fray. Paint a wooden dowel and let dry. Wrap and glue a piece of felt around one end of the dowel and, once dry, glue it to the back of the mask. Use your imagination and decorate the mask with whatever you like! Try feathers, faux jewels, glitter glue, ribbon and more to make the mask your own (or to match the rest of your ensemble).

A Mardi Gras celebration would not be complete without a slice of King Cake, a tasty sweet bread that is meant to be eaten between Jan. 6 (Kings’ Day, in honor of the three wise men’s visit to baby Jesus) and Mardi Gras. Traditionally, the cake has a small plastic baby baked into it to symbolize baby Jesus, and whoever gets the slice containing the baby is “King for the day”! In a large bowl, dissolve 2 packages (.25 oz each) of active dry yeast and ½ cup of white sugar in a large bowl with 1 cup of warm milk. Let stand until creamy (about 10 minutes). Stir 5 egg yolks and ½ cup of melted butter into the egg mixture. In a separate bowl, combine 4 cups of flour, 2 teaspoons of salt, 1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg and 1 teaspoon of grated lemon zest. Beat the flour mixture into the milk/egg mixture one cup at a time. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 8 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl, and place the dough in it and turn to coat

with the oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until the dough has doubled in volume (about 2 hours). In a small bowl, combine 1 package (8 oz.) of cream cheese and 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar. Mix well. In another small bowl, combine 2 more cups of confectioners' sugar, ¼ cup of lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of milk. Mix well and set aside. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Roll the dough out into a 6x30inch rectangle. Spread the cream cheese filling across the center of the dough. Bring the two long edges together and seal completely. Using your hands, shape the dough into a long cylinder and place on a greased baking sheet, seam-side down. Shape the dough into a ring and press the baby into the ring from the bottom so that it is completely hidden by the dough. Place a well-greased 2 pound metal coffee can into the center of the ring to maintain the shape during baking. Cover the ring with a towel and place in a warm place to rise until doubled in size, about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake until golden brown, about 30 minutes. Remove the coffee can and allow the bread to cool. Drizzle the cooled cake with the lemon/ sugar glaze and decorate with candy sprinkles. Serve a slice to everyone and find out who is king for the day!

Plans for Town of Great Valley Bicentennial Taking Shape By Deb Everts

Plans are coming together well for the Town of Great Valley Bicentennial that begins April 15. Committee members met Tuesday evening at the town hall to review and finalize some of the events scheduled for the celebration. Genealogist Dawn Westfall said there’s a lot going on and different people have taken on different projects, but it’s coming along nicely. She said, as the saying goes, “Many hands make light work,” so if anyone wants to step up and try to help out wherever they can, the committee can still use some extra hands. Westfall commented on the status of a few of the bicentennial events. She said people planning to attend the Great Gatsby Costume Party should call Gail Archer at (716) 258-0099 to make their reservations now. “So far, we have 20 confirmed reservations, but we can only accept a maximum of 40 people,” she said. The Vintage Airplane Fly-in, scheduled for June 29-30 and July 1, will include a veterans’ display. Westfall said Town Historian Marilyn

Eddy Siperek has been working on the lists and, so far, she has completed the lists of Great Valley’s veterans from the Civil War and World War II, and is currently working on World War I. “We are looking for volunteers to help prepare the display boards,” she said. “The committee would like to do a ceremony to honor Great Valley’s veterans, if somebody would be willing to take that project on. We want to recognize our men and women who are serving, or have served in the armed forces.” Westfall said they have finished the sales of the calendars and plan to issue raffle tickets at the Pioneer Tea to have a drawing for the remaining calendars. Confirmed events for the bicentennial schedule include: • Sunday, April 15: Pioneer Certificates presented at the Pioneer Tea, an invitation only event, to be held at the Evergreen Tea Room from 1-2:30 p.m. Afterward, the Town Birthday Party, open to the public, will kick off at the Evergreen Tea Room from 3-5 p.m. The birthday cake will be provided by Katy Arena. A tour of the

Evergreen Tea Room at the former Plank Road House will be offered. Call for an appointment or tours will be available on a first come, first serve basis. • Saturday, May 19, evening (time to be determined): The Great Gatsby Costume Party at the town hall. Live threepiece band. If desired, attendees may bring their own alcoholic beverage. Punch and light snacks will be provided courtesy of sponsor and hostess Gail Archer. Help is available with costuming. Reservations are required. The event is expected to fill up quickly, so call Archer at (716) 258-0099 to reserve a spot. • Saturday, June 2: Heritage Day (Kill Buck) will coordinate with Heritage Day at Seneca Iroquois National Museum. • June 29-30 and July 1: Vintage Airplane fly-in. Planes will begin arriving Friday and will continue to fly in Saturday. They will be on display for the public to view. Rain day Sunday. More details are expected to be available in early April. Call organizer Paul Carmichael at (716) 3075832 for more information. • Saturday July 21: Old Home Days Community Celebration Day. Bounce

houses, dunk tank, fireworks, parade, street dance, food vendors. Sponsored by the Great Valley Volunteer Fire Department. Old-fashioned contests sponsored by Great Valley Volunteer Fire Company Auxiliary. There will be a charge for the chicken barbecue, but everything else is free. • Sunday July 22: Old Home Days continues with “Farming in Great Valley: Then and Now,” in the Willoughby area. Event will take place at Snow Brook Farms, 5346 Snow Brook Road. Hosted by Dan and Marcy Brown, and Jim Brennan family. Display of old and antique farm equipment, implements and tools. Tour of a robotic milking operation. The next planning meeting will be held April 10 at the Evergreen Team, located at 5997 Route 98, in Great Valley, from 7 to 8 p.m. For more information and new additions to the schedule, visit “Town of Great Valley, NY History” on Facebook. Watch for updates in the local newspapers. Join the email list by contacting Town Historian, Marilyn Eddy Siperek at msiperek@aol. com.
