Gin Mill Partners with 42 North Brewing for New Lager By Alicia Dziak

Anyone who knows Ellicottville knows the Gin Mill at 20 Washington Street, a restaurant and local hot spot that is constantly evolving, and bringing not only live music to the village on a nightly basis, but also serving up good times, tasty burgers and wings, and of course, beer. With over two dozen beers on tap, it can be tough to make a choice, and now making it even tougher, a new brew has been added: the Gin Mill Lager. “This is something we’ve wanted to do for a long time,” explained Gin Mill Owner Ed Rick. After Rick discussed his vision with regular customers-turned-friends, 42 North Brewing

Pumpkinville Opens Soon By Mary Heyl

Last week’s cooler weather is a reminder that fall is on the way, which means Pumpkinville will soon be open for the season! On Saturday, Sept. 16, the area’s most beloved fall destination will open, and visitors can explore all the fun (it’s more than just pumpkins!) daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. until Halloween. Owners Dan and Diane Pawlowski invite you to visit their unique farm, which welcomes thousands

See Pumpkinville page 4

Ellicottville is in for a special treat on Friday, Aug. 11 at 8 p.m., when Shake on the Lake presents William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. This famous story of star-crossed lovers will be featured at the Village Gazebo, thanks to the Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce and

the Cattaraugus County Arts Council. The play will be performed by Shake on the Lake, a Silver Lake, NY, based Shakespearian troupe that has been bringing the Bard’s pieces to Western and Central New York since 2012. The organization’s goals are creating a fun, family-

friendly, outdoor production of Shakespeare to high artistic standards. They look to use cost-effective, green production practices and have been known to use refurbished and repurposed items in their productions. Shake on the Lake also helps sponsors find ways to make performances low-cost to offer a higher accessibility to quality performances. Make sure you bring your chairs or a blanket and come out to enjoy an hour and a half of live Shakespeare. The best part? It’s free!

Four Projects Approved in the Village

By Caitlin Croft

The August 2017 meeting of The Village Planning Board (VPB) opened with four Public Hearings and made decisions on three. The first is regarding PB-2017-07, a Home Occupation at 54 Mill Street, a beauty salon in the basement of the home. This is an allowable use in

the village with a Special Use Permit. There will be no exterior changes to the home; therefore, no Site Plan or Architectural Design Review will be needed. There were no comments from the public and the VPB closed the Public Hearing. Later in the meeting the VPB performed the State

Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) and made a negative declaration. The VPB then moved to approve the Home Occupation and grant the Special Use Permit, a second was made and the VPB approved. Next, the Public Hearing

Gin Mill Lager Continued from front page

owner John Cimperman and Head Brewmaster Clay Keel, it became clear that East Aurora’s popular brewery was the perfect choice to create the lager. (Rick noted that the Gin Mill has been carrying 42 North’s brews for a year and a half and that their products have really taken off.) “This is the Gin Mill, so we wanted something traditional,” said Rick of his choice to develop a lager, as opposed to something trendier like an IPA. “We wanted a consistent ‘workingman’s beer,’ nothing too hoppy and something you can drink all night.” The folks at 42 North Brewing translated Rick’s vision into a sample batch, which Keel describes as “a Helles Bach style” or a

traditonal German biergarten beer that’s “very refreshing.” Keel added that the lager boasts a subtle bready, crackery malt, and earthy Noble hops, and that it’s comparable in quality to a European beer than can only be bottled and shipped over to the U.S. The Gin Mill Lager is about 6 percent alcohol, slightly higher than a traditional German Helles. “We knew we had a winner,” Rick said after the test batch was tasted by locals. The Gin Mill Lager is currently on tap and ready to satisfy those who crave a classic beer. At this weekend’s Taste of Ellicottville, the Gin Mill will be offering a special from 12-4 p.m. featuring the Gin Mill Lager, along

with their famous burger and housemade chips. To add to the fun, 42 North’s 1919 Ford Model T delivery truck will be parked nearby.

By Kim Duke, NETA & AAFA Certified Trainer

Core Performance Fitness and Training is excited to announce that Nicole Alter will be joining our powerpacked team. Nicole is not only a NCSF certified personal trainer, but is also certified in nutrition, meal prepping and 1st phorm supplementation. Nicole spent much of her young adult life as a

motorcross racer, even going pro at age 24. To reach that level of racing, you need to keep your body in great shape. This is when Nicole stated her love for strength training took shape, and in 2014, Nicole focused her attention on getting certified as a personal trainer. Getting certified as a personal trainer and actually training people requires time and experience, so Nicole took a job at the YMCA in Olean to develop her skill set. There she taught a variety of classes and started training clients. She also kept adding certifications to develop a stronger brand. Unlike the other trainers at Core Performance, Nicole is a body builder first and foremost. She brings a different perspective to our fitness studio and will be

developing classes with her unique flair. Nicole herself is always working on her body, which is quite evident upon meeting her. But, don’t take my word for it- check her out on facebook at www.Facebook com/17EliteFitness or on Instagram at www.instagram. com/NicoleAlterFitness. Another quality that sets Nicole apart is that she is a night owl. Nicole prefers to work later versus earlier in the day, offering a whole new set of time slots available for training. Nicole is available for personal training all nights of the week except for Wednesdays. You can reach her through email at NicoleAlter@17Elite.Fitness or by calling Core Performance Fitness and Training at (716) 698-1198. Pumpkinville Continued from front page

Letter from the Editor

As we head into mid-August, there are many late-summer activities I look forward to. For one, the annual Taste of Ellicottville, which this year features 18 local eateries featuring their specialties on the village streets. For a small town, Ellicottville certainly has no shortage of fabulous food, and this weekend is all about showcasing it. Be sure to check out the article on page 1 and all the important details (like the menu!) on page 11. In addition, the Erie County Fair is now underway in Hamburg. Literally weathering the storm from a few weeks back, the fairgrounds is ready to welcome thousands of guests and treat them to rides, exhibits, entertainment, food, games and much more. Our fair feature on page 5 highlights some of the great things you can find there, and the fair runs this weekend through next, and all the weekdays in between. While the weather may be hinting at fall, there’s still plenty of summer left. Get out and enjoy some of the wonderful area events that only happen this time of year! - Alicia Dziak, Editor, Ellicottville Times

of visitors each year. If you’ve never visited Pumpkinville, you’re in for a real treat! Located just minutes from Ellicottville at 4844 Sugartown Road in Great Valley, Pumpkinville has thousands of pumpkins, which are all grown on the Pawlowski family’s 200-acre farm. Pick your special pumpkin(s) and choose from 10 varieties of winter squash; for the full farm experience, use one of the pumpkin barrows to haul your bounty back to the car. Visitors interested in decorating for the season will be pleased to find a variety of gourds, corn stalks, hay bales, and more. Of course, there’s more to enjoy than the eponymous gourds, as Pumpkinville is also known for their great selection of New York State apples. Visitors can choose from a wide variety of freshly picked New York apples, and new varieties are available each week. Nothing says “fall” like a nice glass of fresh apple cider—watch Pumpkinville’s antique cider press in action, and enjoy a glass (hot or cold!). Of course, visitors can stock up and take a few gallons home, too. Pumpkinville is a great place to bring the whole family for an afternoon of fun! Children will enjoy the many free activities, like petting the farm animals, playing in the Corn TeePee and the Kiddie

Spookum Barn, and meeting Perky, the Talking Pumpkin. Visitors can also purchase an activity wristband to get the full Pumpkinville experience and enjoy the farm pedal carts, country hayrides, cow train and the six-acre corn maze. Diane is excited to have visitors explore this year’s maze, which is sure to put them to the test. “We planted this year’s maze around the 15th of May, so the design is all set. Right now, the corn is about eight feet tall, which is about as tall as it will get.” Last year’s maze featured Snoopy from the Peanuts cartoons, as last year, Pumpkinville was named an official “Snoopy mascot” by Peanuts Worldwide Corp. This year, Pumpkinville is an official partner with Universal Pictures for the upcoming Curious George movie! Pawlowski encourages visitors to stay tuned to find out how this partnership will be incorporated in this year’s exciting new Pumpkinville activities that she looks forward to sharing soon. “Our plans for 2017 are still under wraps, but we’re excited to

announce them very soon! Visitors can definitely look forward to an awesome corn maze this year, as well as the return of the Pumpkinville Express Train Ride.” Visitors of all ages can enjoy a train ride around the field through the tunnel, which was a new activity added in 2016. Be sure to bring your appetite to Pumpkinville, as there’s a delicious treat no matter how big your appetite. Try one of their famous pumpkin donuts, freshly popped kettle corn, ice cream, homemade pies and baked goods, freshly made fudge, caramel and candy apples and more. Enjoy a meal at the Pumpkinville Grill and on the weekend, try Pumpkinville’s delicious chicken barbecue. “This is our family’s twentythird year in business,” said Diane, “and we’re looking forward to another great season this year!” Plan your visit today by visiting www., and be sure to follow Pumpkinville on Facebook for news, photos and more.

Three years ago, Audubon Community Nature Center staff decided it would be fun to add a new twist to the allday Saturday event with its activities for all ages. Since then, Friday evening has been Monarchs and Margaritas – a special treat just for grownups.  At the Friday, August 25 celebration, 5-7 p.m., while supporting Monarchs you can enjoy an exclusive sneak peek of the Festival, plus food, games, and margaritas.  The Nature Center multipurpose room will be transformed into a butterfly house full of beautiful flowers and Monarch Butterflies and ready for visiting by the evening’s participants as well as Saturday festival-goers.  Bring your friends for a crowd-free/child-free

experience with the live butterflies and a chance to win some great prizes. Monarchs and Margaritas theme is inspired by the migration to Mexico the Monarchs will begin when they are released at the close of Saturday’s Festival.  Each admission includes two drink tickets for margaritas. Miley’s is providing the drinks and catering south-of-theborder-themed appetizers with vegetarian options. Nonalcoholic beverages will also be available.  Monarchs need help. Throughout the last decade, Monarch populations have been decimated by habitat loss, deforestation, and drought. Through a fun game, informational presentations, and the opportunity to view all stages of the Monarch life cycle up close you will learn more about their plight and how you can help.

New this year is a silent auction with Monarch migration themed items.  A hint for first-timers: Bring some spare change for extra drinks, to get ahead in the game, and to shop for some great butterfly-themed merchandise.  Reserve early: admission is limited. Cost is $25 for those who reserve and pay by Wednesday, Aug. 23, or $30 if you pay at the door. Register online through the Programs and Events page at or pay by phone with a credit card at (716) 569-2345 during business hours. Audubon Community Nature Center is located at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, New York, and Warren, Pennsylvania.

ALLEGANY STATE Park News park events August 18 Beach Party, Quaker Lake August 19 Third Saturday Trek- Wetlands September 9 Friends of Allegany State Park Volunteer Day

Beach Party Aug. 18

Spend some fun in the sun at Allegany State Park at the 9th annual Beach Party Aug. 18! The day kicks off at 3 p.m. at the Quaker Beach area with a Seneca-Salamanca Chamber of Commerce-sponsored showcase featuring local vendors and organizations. Come check out the many great things that are available in the local community. The chicken barbecue will begin at 4 p.m. (until sold out) hosted by J-Con Concessions. While there, make sure you hit the beach! At 4:30 p.m., Keith James gets the music going. Keith is an accomplished pop singer/ songwriter from Buffalo, New York. His soulful vocals and infectious stage presence have brought him success not only on the local stage, but the national one as well. One of Keith’s most notable feats was appearing on season 6 of NBC’s “The Voice”. Since then he’s gone on to do special events for the Buffalo Sabres, Bills, and many others in local and regional venues. Keith will be followed by park Artist in Residence Sean Patrick McGraw at 6 p.m. Sean is a singer and songwriter who gained national recognition in 2004 as a semi-finalist on USA Network’s Nashville Star. Since then, Sean has continued to perform as well as write songs that have been licensed by ESPN, recorded by major country artist Montgomery Gentry, as well as others that have been placed on TV programs such as HBO’s True Blood and Sons on Anarchy. At 7:30 p.m., headliner Kevin McCarthy takes the stage. Kevin is a singer and songwriter and has been living his dream career as a professional musician for over

16 years. Kevin has played in the band “Hollywood” and then co-founded McCarthyizm with his brother, which quickly became one of the top bands in Western New York. About 10 years later, Kevin began his solo career, playing throughout Western New York and Canada. He was twice voted top solo artist and was inducted in to the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame in 2009. He is an active songwriter and has released numerous CDs with McCarthyizm and won high praise with his first solo CD “High on You.” This family-friendly event will also feature activities for all ages. Park Naturalists will man an “Ask the Naturalist” table. So bring your naturerelated questions and check out some cool interactive displays. There will be craft activities for the kids, and who knows? We might even break out the Limbo stick! But the night’s not over. The Quaker Beach will be open to swimming from 11 a.m. through 6:45 p.m. and the snack bar will be open from 11 a.m. through the start of the fireworks. Be sure to stick around as we end the evening with a

beautiful fireworks display over the waters of Quaker Lake –definitely a sight not to be missed! The launch site for the fireworks has been relocated to a field just off ASP 3 at the midpoint of the lake between the Quaker toll booth and the intersection of ASP 3 and Cain Hollow. This change is required to be in compliance with Federal regulations restricting the distance fireworks can be launched from the newly established eagle’s nest in the area. The best vantage points are at both ends of the lake, a couple of areas on each side of the lake, as well as the Quaker Beach down near the sand area. Patrons planning to view the fireworks at the beach should plan to arrive early as the parking lot has limited capacity and will be closed once it is full. Be sure to check the Allegany State Park Facebook page for a map of the best viewing sites. For more information contact the Environmental Education/ Recreation Department at (716)354-9101 ext. 236 or check out the Allegany State Park Facebook page.

led by park staff and summer interns. This month’s trek takes place Aug. 19 on the new wetland boardwalk.

“Any Dream Will Do” by Debbie Macomber

This is a story of second chances at love and at life for both the main characters, Drew and Shay. Shay, after first meeting Drew, found the Hope House. The Hope House took her in, gave her a food and shelter and counseled her while preparing and encouraging her for a future on her own. Drew had been crippled by grief for his late wife, barely keeping it together for his two kids and his congregation. After meeting Shay, he reached out to friends, started interacting more, and became a better Pastor. Their chance meeting became a catalyst that got them both on the right track with their lives. Beloved bestselling author Debbie Macomber returns with this powerful standalone novel about a woman forced to start her life anew, embarking on the most courageous journey of all—to a place where she learns what love and trust really mean.

for PB-2016-08 49 Washington (M&T Bank) a Site Plan Amendment was held. They would like to restripe the parking lot and it would reduce the drive lane from 24’ to 19.5’. This will create and additional three parking spaces along the Washington side of the parking lot and will change the parking from parallel to perpendicular. This will also allow extra room for snow storage in the winter. The Zoning Board of Appeals approved the variance on the drive lane at their August 2017 meeting. There were no comments from the public and VPB closed the hearing. Later in the meeting, the VPB went through the SEQR processes and then made a negative declaration. A motion was made to approve the Site Plan Amendment, there was a second and the VPB approved. The third Public Hearing was on PB-2017-10, a SingleFamily Residence to be built at 20 Fillmore Drive. This is an allowable use in the village and will only undergo the Architectural Review process and Site Plan Review. This is in an approved sub development. All set backs have been met, along with the height requirements. This has been deemed a Type 2 Action under SEQR and therefore is not subject to SEQR. There was an error is the Public Notice for the Public Hearing

and another hearing will be held in a special meeting of the VPB on Aug. 22 at 4:30 p.m. This project was tabled until the special meeting. The final Public Hearing was regarding PB-2017-11 an Accessory Apartment to be located at 26 W. Washington. This will be a 1,152-sq. ft. apartment. There will be new double hung windows on the front of the apartment and will not change the character of the structure. The building is in the Historic Overlay District and must therefore Section 11 standards need to be met. There will be no changes to the building’s size and the driveway will remain the same as well. This has been deemed a Type 2 Action under SEQR and therefore is not subject to SEQR. This project meets the Floor to Area Ratio (FAR) and Open Space requirements are also met. There was one letter received from Sean Cornelius stating he had no issues or concerns with the project. There were two comments from the public regarding the Floodplain and Conservation Zone. It was deemed to not be in the Floodplain or in a Conservation Zone. An Architectural Review, Historic Preservation Review, Special Use Permit and Minor Lot Line Adjustment are needed for this project. Later in the meeting, the VPB made a motion to declare it a Type 2 action under

SEQR, there was a second and it was approved. Next was the Minor Lot Line Adjustment, .14 acres is to be added to the neighboring lot. This shall not to be considered a sub division. The VPB made a motion to approve, there was a second and the VPB approved. Two more motions were made the first to approve the Special Use Permit and Site Plan Review and the second to approve the Architectural Design and Historic Preservation Review. There was a motion on the first to approved with the following conditions; there will only be one accessory apartment, there will be no rentals for less than 30 days, no work shall occur except pursuant to the building permit and the conditions must be on the Certificate of Occupancy. The last project to be approved was PB-2017-09 a window to be converted to a door at 24 E. Washington. The VPB approved of the door and made a motion to grant the Architectural Design Review with the condition that the window is to be replaced with the door that is pictured in the design. There was a second and the VPB approved. The meeting was closed and the next regular meeting of the VPB will be on August 12, 2017 at 5:30PM at the Village Hall.
