SEPTEMBER 8-14, 2017

By Alicia Dziak

If you’re looking for ways to connect with the great outdoors that are above and beyond your typical hikes, look no further than the Enchanted Mountains, a hub of September activity. Art, nature, education and music come together at some unique local events and activities this month. Griffis Sculpture Park is one of the area’s hidden gems. With over 250 sculptures gracing the park, there are meandering trails, with each sculpture placed with the natural setting in mind, creating a truly unique experience between art and nature. The park is a daytime attraction, beckoning hundreds of visitors to explore it every spring, summer and fall. The rare opportunity to check out the park at night once again arrives next week, when NIGHT LIGHTS return Wednesday, Sept. 13 and runs on select evenings through Sunday, Oct. 8. For the fifth consecutive autumn, Griffis Sculpture Park will again be illuminated with colorful and theatrical lighting. NIGHT LIGHTS will be open 17 nights for guests to view the interaction between lights, nature and art. The show has attracted over 5,000 visitors since 2013. “Over the past four years, NIGHT LIGHTS has been a fun and creative way to bring visitors to the Griffis Sculpture Park. In addition to raising revenue for the park, it gives people another reason to come out to visit such a unique place,” said Doug Sitler of Sitler HQ, who creates the light displays. “A lot of people look forward in coming to the sculpture park for NIGHT LIGHTS each year. Many drive into Springville or Ellicottville for dinner before coming out to see the lights.” If you’ve never experienced NIGHT LIGHTS at the park, you’ll be blown away by

The annual 5th Grade Arbor Day Poster Contest is sponsored by DEC, the State Department of Agriculture and Markets, and the State Education Department. The theme for this year’s contest is, “Trees for Bees.” Students are asked to create an original poster depicting this theme.

The winner will have his or her artwork replicated as DEC’s official 2018 New York State 5th Grade Arbor Day Poster and the winning poster will be presented at the annual Arbor Day Celebration in Albany. Last year, New York printed more than 200,000 Arbor Day posters for distribution at schools, libraries, government offices, nursery and landscaping businesses, and environmental organizations throughout the state. Posters must be submitted by January 5, 2018, to any local DEC regional office. The contest is open to all New York students enrolled in fifth grade.

I encourage New York’s fifth graders to join our celebration of trees and showcase why trees are important in our daily lives.”

It’s a component of cell membranes and is required to synthesize acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter. Studies have shown that a lack of choline has been linked to neurological disorders and decreased cognitive function. Shockingly, more than 90 percent of Americans eat less than the daily-recommended amount of choline, according to a U.S. dietary survey. You’ll feel fuller and eat less.

The sculptures take on a whole look bathed in colorful LED lights,” noted Sitler. New additions to the trail this year are new lighting concepts, soundscapes, video projections and events. The Buffalo music group The Observers will be playing a show on Saturday, Sept. 30. “We are adding a few new lighting and sound features this year, as well as a few fun events such as music performances, night hikes and family-friendly bonfire nights,” Sitler explained. NIGHT LIGHTS at Griffis Sculpture Park is open for four consecutive weeks, Wednesday through Saturday and on Sunday, Oct. 8. Admission will be $10 for adults, $5 for children 12 to 7.

to Irish Hill and Kuhn Roads. The board is looking into the request, and will reply to WVSD. Miller mentioned that there will be an athletic committee meeting on Sept. 6 to discuss the purchasing of team apparel. Miller and Elementary Principal Connie Poulin attended the Ellicottville Rotary’s Tuscan Moon fundraiser event at Holiday Valley Aug. 26. He commented that the ECS students who volunteered as servers were helpful and friendly, and felt it gave them a positive environment for community service. The majority of the volunteers were seniors and juniors, and a few sophomores as well. Ellicottville will host the first annual Ellicottville Lacrosse Festival Sept. 22-24, and welcome 30 teams with hundreds of competitors from all over. The tournament will be held at ECS and the Ellicottville Village Park. (In addition to games, off-field fun includes a 3 on 3 Mini Tournament, Wooden Stick Making Demonstrations, Wood Stick Game, Lacrosse Vendors, Food Trucks, Dunk Tank, Powell Fun Zone and Live Music. For more info, visit There will be a tour of the lacrosse tournament fields and practice areas this Thursday at ECS. Because the tournament is an all day event, there will be varying amounts of traffic in the parking lots and on the fields. Miller stressed that all

30 teams will not be there at the same time. Poulin’s report focused on the positive return of students to class, and the welcoming of new teachers as well. The kindergarten class hosted a meet-and-greet for parents, students, and the new teachers. Poulin also mentioned that the biggest challenge of the first day was the change of bus numbers and new bus drivers – but the changes and glitches were worked through successfully. She also commented on how nice it was to see veteran teachers helping the new teachers navigate through the day. High School Principal Erich Ploetz opened his first school year at ECS with a “Measure of Success” assembly, striving to deliver inspirational messages and important policies to “eager students and smiling faces.” Buildings and Grounds Committee Report Board members toured the ECS grounds prior the the 7 p.m. meeting, reviewing the recent elementary entranceway renovations. Miller acknowledged the need for curb renovations. The high school weight room was recently cleaned out and cleaned up. The focus of weight lifting activity takes place in the gym, and the old weight room will be used as a combination aerobic area / weight room. Updated fresh air exchanges were recently installed, and the elevator underwent a quick-fix repair.

French Club Trip to Montreal A concept discussion took place about the ECS French Club’s annual trip, possibly this spring to Montreal, Quebec. There was a conversation about possibly combining it with the senior class trip, which would combine a larger number of students, and ultimately lower the cost per student. Potential turmoil overseas in Europe was of concern, and prompted class advisors to consider a location closer to home, while still focusing on French culture and language. The board approved the preliminary concept, and authorized Mrs. Whistler (French Club) and Mrs. Wilder and Mrs. Waldron (Sr. Class Advisors) to see how much interest there would be from students to go on the trip. Other locations for the senior trip are also being considered. Three items were presented under new business. First, the list of 2017/18 home school students was approved. Second, board member Robert Van Wicklin received approval to attend the Commissioner’s Roundtable on Sept. 8 at NYSSBA in Latham, NY. The final item was authorization of a fiveyear contract with Jamestown Community College (College Connections), beginning with the 2017/18 school year. The next meeting of the ECS Board of Education is scheduled for Sept. 19, 2017 at 7 p.m.

First Day of School at ECS

Six and under are free.

Soak up the lights, the environment and the beautiful fall evenings,” said Sitler. Another way to enjoy the great outdoors this month is to head to Ellicottville’s very

own Nannen Arboretum. On Sept. 20, learn about the Monarch Butterfly Restoration in WNY from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Ellicottville Town Center. The speaker is David O’Donnel, President, Eastern Monarch Butterfly Farm in Clarence. Cost for this program is $5 at the door. On Sept. 24, take A Walk in the Arboretum, offered 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. This free walk will be led by Nannen Arboretum Society members, taking visitors through the grounds. Refreshments will also be served. Since this is a ski town, what better way to enjoy the views than with a scenic chairlift ride? Offered weekends Oct. 15, take in the change of the seasons on Holiday Valley’s Spruce Chair, located by Tannenbaum Lodge and Sky High. Rides are available Saturdays and Sundays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Why not spend the next couple weeks outdoors doing some unique activities you can’t find just anywhere? Mark your calendars and have a blast!

Bona Responds

I am writing to you on behalf of our physicians and staff at Olean Medical Group. We are reaching out to you in hopes that you can help to raise funds for Bona Responds.  The Bona Responds team is already working hard to provide some relief to families in the Houston area who are in need of wheelchairs - several wheelchairs.  So many people have either lost their chairs in the wake of the storm or surging waters - or they were destroyed altogether.  Bona Responds has answered the call for help and we, in turn, hope that you can help too.   A standard adult wheelchair costs approximately $165.  If you could purchase a chair or two, that would be great.  However, we hope that you could donate any amount that you are comfortable with.  You can do so by one of two ways.  Go online to www.bonaresponds. org and make a donation of any amount.  Or you can drop off cash or a check, made payable to St. Bonaventure marked for Bona Responds, at any of our offices in Olean, (Pictured in the attached photo are Cuba, Ellicottville, Franklinville, or Salamanca - 7 in all l - r, Dr. Gil Witte, Dr. Tressa Jordan, with two offices in Olean and two in Cuba.  Simply give and Dr. Ricardo Ilustre, representing your tax deductible donation to any of our personnel at OMG) registration and they will get it to us at the main office.  In turn, we’ll deliver to St. Bonaventure.   The waters in Houston will recede in ten or eleven days but the damage and destruction will be there for a very long time.  The heartache and sadness will remain just as long for those who lost everything.  Our greater Olean community is so giving .... let’s help them out by giving to Bona Responds.   I am coordinating the fundraising at the medical group offices so if you have any questions, feel free to call or email me.  If you would like to know more about Bona Responds, go to their website.  They are a remarkable group, comprised of students, faculty, and several community volunteers.   Thank you in advance for anything you can do to help out.  No donation is too small either.  If enough of us make a $20 donation, it will add up very quickly.   - Tricia Henzel, on behalf of our Physicians at Olean Medical Group

‘House of Spies’ by Daniel Silva

Four months after the deadliest attack on the American homeland since 9/11, terrorists leave a trail of carnage through London’s glittering West End. The attack is a brilliant feat of planning and secrecy, but with one loose thread.  The thread leads Gabriel Allon and his team of operatives to the south of France and to the gilded doorstep of Jean-Luc Martel and Olivia Watson. A beautiful former British fashion model, Olivia pretends not to know that the true source of Martel’s enormous wealth is drugs. And Martel, likewise, turns a blind eye to the fact he is doing business with a man whose objective is the very destruction of the West. Together, under Gabriel’s skilled hand, they will become an unlikely pair of heroes in the global war on terror.  This book is currently available in book format only at the Ellicottville Memorial Library. It is also available as a large print book or an audio book using our interlibrary loan program. Don’t forget, you can access over 15,300 eBooks and eAudiobooks using your library card!

EVGV Trail Committee Says Thank You to the Community

Ellicottville Times

(716) 699-4062 Page 7

By Jennie Acklin and Amy DeTine

The first annual Ham & Turkey Raffle event was held on Sunday, June 4, 2017 at the Ellicottville American Legion on Maples Road. Inspired by Matt McAndrew from his own work on a separate raffle organized by Holy Name of Mary’s Usher Club, the EVGV Trail committee decided to host their own event. They teamed up with the volunteer group that oversees the care of the Nannen Arboretum, offering to donate 25 percent of the net profit on the raffle and event to them. The event consisted of pre-sale tickets for $20, and included a ham and turkey raffle with additional ticket sales, a 50/50 raffle, and numerous door prizes solicited and donated by the Arboretum volunteers. The committee and Arboretum volunteers sold a large percentage of the raffle tickets right out of the gate, and a large number were also sold on the day of the event. An abundance of door prizes and raffle items were solicited and donated by the Nannen Arboretum Society Committee and volunteers. Cheri Reed, Pat Kerl, Nan Miller, Maggie Smith, Sue Blesy, Charlie Jaremko, Paul Kingston, Penny Lipps, Linda and Jeff Davis showed up in force to help at the event. With help from Dale Dunkleman of the American Legion, (who donated the Legion hall, soft drinks, water, and serving supplies)

Butch Pearl volunteered his experience and sense of humor to MC the event. Jim Dunkleman delivered and provided the hams and steaks at cost. Ushers from Holy Name of Mary volunteered their Sunday to help organize and run the actual event – a huge shout out to Matt McAndrew, Paul Timkey, Bob O’Brien, and Norbert Schmidt. Although the turnout was light, the people that attended were all in! They participated faithfully in each spin of the wheel, and many groups needed help loading up the “booty” at the end of the day. The event was a great success for the first time out of the gate, and all involved agreed that it can be much bigger and more successful next year.

They also play covers ranging from Elvis to Reverend Horton Heat, Buddy Holly, and the Stray Cats. According to their website, “This isn’t the 50’s and neither are we, so don’t expect to be sitting down or

having a cup of tea.” The music continues Saturday with an 80s party band at The Winery of Ellicottville Mainstage on Monroe Street. The band will be playing the tunes that made the music of the 1980s so special. The party starts at 1 p.m. on the north side of Monroe Street, right in front of The Winery of Ellicottville. Finnerty’s keeps things going at 3 p.m. with The Carl Motyka Band. The ensemble plays rock from the 1950s to now, but specializes in the stuff that will have you dancing and reminiscing. These guys play everything from The Beatles to Lynyrd Skynyrd to Journey, Tom Petty, Cheap Trick, and many more. East Aurora’s party band, Never Ben, takes to the Madigan’s stage at 6 p.m. Playing music from the 1960s to today, these musicians will be what you’re looking for when it comes to some of the classics. Never Ben covers tunes from Led Zeppelin, The Who, Kings of Leon, even U2 and Lenny Kravitz, all with the occasional country and reggae sound mixed in. Balloons keeps things rolling with Hayden Fogel on stage at 6 p.m. Fogel is a 17-year-old blues guitar prodigy that was immersed into the spotlight when none other than Buddy Guy invited him to play on stage at a show in Buffalo. He and his band have been named one of the top three blues bands in the region by the ALL WNY Music Awards. The show will

be one not to miss! At 8, just down the street at Ellicottville Brewing Company, The Untouchables will perform. These guys will entertain you with some great rhythm and blues, oldies rock and roll, classic soul and much more. After two decades of performing in Western New York and Pennsylvania, they know how to command a stage. Villaggio will wrap up Saturday with DNR on Tap at 9 p.m. DNR is a four-piece band that plays familiar rock and blues from the 1970s to today’s hits. At the same time, Live ‘N’ Kickin’ will be playing at The Gin Mill. The Buffalo-based trio performs their usual highenergy, danceable rock and roll, with just a bit of country mixed in. Sunday features the annual car show. Washington, Jefferson, and Monroe Streets will all be closed as over 250 cars and trucks will be on display. Bring the kids out to see autos from the early 1900s to today. Some military vehicles will also be on display. At 2 p.m., head over to the gazebo for internationally renown Elvis impersonator, Terry Buchwald. You may want to get there early. His shows have a habit of running short of space pretty quick. After Elvis leaves the gazebo, Terry transforms himself into Garth Brooks and continues to entertain the audience. It is an experience that you have to experience. All the fun starts Friday, Sept. 15 and continues until 5 p.m. on Sunday.
