FALLING INTO WNY WINTER

Local farms, gardens ready for a promising fall By Kellen M. Quigley As the nights become cooler and the days become shorter, the peak of the harvest is underway leading up to the beautiful fall weather hitting Western New York. On Vaughn Street (Route 240) between Springville and East Concord, several local farms and gardens are looking forward to the fall after a tough start to the season earlier this spring. “It was a challenging spring. May was very cold,” said Ellen Krzemien, owner of The Flower Stand, located at 13187 Vaughn St. “Even when the plants were ready to come out of the greenhouse and go in the ground, the soil was too cold and wet, so we did get a bit of a late start.” According to its website, The Flower Stand’s 2019 garden is just short of two acres and had over 150 varieties of flowers and a weekly community supported agriculture flower subscription service. A little farther down the road at 12466 Vaughn St., Wendel’s Poultry Farm offers more than just fresh and frozen chickens. Leading up to Halloween, they will have patches of pumpkins ready for picking. “It was an awful wet spring to get started to get the crops in the ground,” said Marty Wendel, a third-generation co-partner at Wendel’s. “We’re lucky enough that we’re on pretty gravelly ground, so the crops got in on time.” As of mid-August, Wendel said the pumpkins are progressing well and just starting to turn orange. “We’re right on course having

orange pumpkins in the yard by the third weekend in September,” he added. Down at 12317 Vaughn St., Waterman’s Greenhouse also had a slow start to the year due to the amount of rain earlier in the season. “We would get a few good days, and then it would rain,” said coowner Ethan Waterman. “People weren’t purchasing plants as early as they normally would.” Although it was a longer and slower year for sales, Waterman said it ended up working out because people continued to purchase past the normal slowdown time in July. “The first part of the season was very rough, but the second part of the season turned out to be pretty good,” he added. As the fall days approach, Krzemien said the bounty is looking good at The Flower Stand. “The dahlias are just starting to get going,” she said, noting they have six new varieties, along with several late plantings and varieties of sunflowers. “We’ll have beautiful flowers right up until the first hard freeze of October.” Back at Waterman’s, standout sales this year included a lot of different colors of flowers, including angelonias. “It’s gotten a lot more colors, a lot more uses and the quality of the plant is a lot better,” Ethan Waterman said of the angelonias. “I’s for flowering all season long and gives you some height in your containers.” During the fall, he said they have mums available, a seasonal favorite which normally sells until midOctober, and then the greenhouse

will close for the season. Meanwhile at Wendel’s, Marty Wendel said they have new people stop by the farm every week, which keeps the business rolling along, whether for chickens, pumpkins or their maple syrup products. “The trees have had plenty of rain this spring and plenty of sunshine,” he said. “With all that rain we had, I’m sure they grew quite well and healed last year’s holes up. Usually, they can heal in one season now because we’re using a smaller diameter tap. We’re trying to stay ahead of any health problems that the trees might have.” During 2019, Wendel said maple syrup sales remained strong and is looking forward to 2020. A big part of fall is the Halloween season, and The Flower Stand is planning to have pumpkins right through Oct. 31. “I like to grow the decorator pumpkins, the blue and white and flat pumpkins for topiaries, Indian corn and gourds,” Krzemien said. “And, of course, we’ll have all of the usual Rumfola’s Market squashes and fall produce.” Looking forward to after Halloween, Marty Wendel said their turkeys are growing well, partly because they like the summer heat. “They’ll be right on time for Thanksgiving and Christmas.”

In their 25 years on Vaughn Street, Ethan Waterman said customers have returned to Waterman’s season after season. He said it feels like a family of customers and they can often remember who bought what plants the year before. “We talk about it, see how it went and try to improve their planning,” he said. “It’s always nice being in a small community.” Waterman said they also draw customers from the greater Erie County and neighboring areas, but having the experience with longtime customers and talking with them is always fun. Krzemien said everyone has been extremely supportive of The Flower Stand’s u-pick flower field during the past few seasons and she is thankful for that. She said they have all sorts of local folks and businesses recycling their gallon containers for the flowers. “The help has been much appreciated as the u-pick field has seen quite a bit of action the past two months,” Krzemien added. Wendel’s Poultry Farm has been going strong since 1945, celebrating their 75th year in 2020. “It’s cool to watch the families grow,” Marty Wendel said. “It’s a progressional thing. We just try to do the best we can and provide a service to the community, and they keep coming back.”

Griffins’ new coach wants “something that Springville can be proud of” By Sam Wilson Mark Heichberger has a vision for the Springville-Griffith Institute

varsity football team, and it doesn’t entirely have to do with the product on the field. Heichberger, who was appointed as the Griffins’ next coach in


January, became a head varsity football coach for the first time after 23 years as a teacher in the district, many of those years as an assistant varsity or junior varsity coach. So he’s seen SGI football up close for parts of three decades. “I want the team to be something that Springville can be proud of,” Heichberger told the Times in July. “I want good people as coaches. I want the kids to not only learn about football but learn about life and doing the right things and how to be successful, and there’s a lot more to a football program than just X’s and O’s.” Heichberger played high school football as a two-way lineman at Gowanda and a year at Canisius College under coach Tom Hersey. After graduation, he spent a year as an assistant modified coach at Williamsville East. “When I got to Springville, there were no (football) coaching positions open,” he said. “The football team was really good and everybody wanted to coach back in the day. Jimmy Duprey was the coach. So I did a couple years of soccer, actually, before I got back into football.” He spent years under several coaches, including Bill Baker, Ron Tamraz, Joe Marvin and John Sopko, as either varsity assistant or JV head coach. “The position came open and it’s something that I’ve always thought about doing,” Heichberger said of becoming head coach. “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do and it just felt like this was the right time.” Heichberger’s staff will include Brian Kader and Bob Ball as varsity assistants, along with Tyler Conklin helping with the JV and varsity teams. Duane Boberg is the JV head coach, assisted by Kevin

Mumbach, and Emilio Mancino is head modified coach with John Baker as a modified assistant. The coaching staff, Heichberger said, will play a key role in making a team “Springville can be proud of.” “We just completed our coaching staff and I feel like we have at all levels and at every position, good people in those spots,” Heichberger said. “The next thing is just trying to show and make the kids understand what the expectations are. Lay down those expectations and just keep on them day after day after day. That’s what we’re going to talk about, doing the right thing. “We’ve already talked as a staff and I’ve spoken with each coach individually,” he continued. “Our mission is going to be the same. We want our playbook to be our playbook, the Springville playbook, not just the varsity, JV and modified. Now we can make some variations of plays, but when a kid moves from level to level, we’re not going to have to start back over at teaching them the basics. So we’re going to try to be — as they say — as vertically and horizontally aligned as possible.” While senior quarterback Nick Emmick leads the Griffins after a record-setting passing year, Heichberger doesn’t expect to have a large group of other returning letter winners but is encouraged by the team’s talent. “The number of kids returning at the varsity level seem to be pretty small, but the kids we have who are coming back and are going to be seniors, I think we have some very talented kids,” he said. “We have a good group that will be moving up from JV to varsity. So I can say it’s going to be interesting. I think overall it’s a good group of guys.”

SCOBY DAM PARK Scoby Dam Park is located on the banks of the Cattaraugus Creek just off Route 219. The Erie County Department of Parks, Recreation and Forestry acquired the dam and surrounding property shortly after the village of Springville ceased using the dam for power generation in 1998. The park is managed as a “conservation park” with minimal improvements and facilities. This area offers great opportunities for water sports, fishing, picnics and a view that is enjoyable for all.

GRIFFIS SCULPTURE PARK The 450-acre Ashford Hollow park, located 10 miles south of Springville off Route 219, is one of America’s largest and oldest sculpture parks, featuring over 250 large scale sculptures dispersed through miles of hiking trails. Each sculpture was placed with the natural setting in mind, creating a truly unique experience between art and nature. Whether you have five minutes or five hours, visitors can always get a flavor of the park.

ERIE COUNTY FORESTRY Hiking opportunities also await at the Erie County Forestry on Genesee Road in East Concord. A network of several miles of marked and unmarked trails traverse the property. These trails may be used for hiking, snowshoeing and ungroomed cross-country skiing. Terrain varies from gentle to steep. A series of trails are also specially designed for equestrian use and snowmobiling.

KISSING BRIDGE Skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts can head to Kissing Bridge, where numerous trails of varying difficulty await, including a new beginner area that was constructed last year, January is also National Learn a Snowsport Month. If you feel like you’ve been missing out on winter fun because you never got around to learning how to ski or snowboard, this is your chance to get out there with other like-minded individuals and embrace the snow.

HEALTH AND WELLNESS Bertrand Chaffee part of the bedrock of the Springville, surrounding community By RICK MILLER Bertrand Chaffee Hospital has been a bedrock for this southern Erie County community for 70 years. It serves residents in portions of four counties — Erie, Cattaraugus, Wyoming and Chautauqua. A majority of patients are from outside Erie County Like all small community hospitals, Bertrand Chaffee has faced its share of challenges. With plans proceeding for construction of a new fourfloor primary care facility,

things are looking up for the emergency and surgical care hospital and the adjacent Jennie B. Richmond rehabilitation facility. “Bertrand Chaffee Hospital and Jennie B. Richmond Nursing Home are vital community assets for Springville and its surrounding communities, “ said Nils Gunnersen, the hospital’s CEO. “Investments in our hospital and nursing home strengthen the local economy and improve health outcomes,” he said. “The New York State Department of Health recognizes our value


and with their support, has enabled recent investments in our diagnostic capabilities and information technologies.” Projects that include a new magnetic resonance imaging unit and medical arts building, which are underway, will further the hospital’s ability to care for its rural community, Gunnersen said. Kelly A. Campbell, development and community relations director for the hospital, summed up the prospects for Bertrand Chaffee: “These are very exciting times.” The new primary care facility will fill the need for a modern medical arts building to replace the medical center adjacent to the hospital that was torn down earlier this summer. The primary care services are temporarily located on the third floor of the hospital. One goal of the new 40,000-square-foot building will be to bring in new specialists and specialty services, allowing Bertand Chaffee to become more of a

one-stop center for medical services. “People can stop here for all their medical needs” instead of driving to Buffalo, Campbell said. The Jennie B. Richmond Nursing Home is fully staffed for physical and occupational therapy after discharge from Bertrand Chaffee or other hospitals or out-patient treatment facilities. Mercy Flight has located outside Bertrand Chaffee Hospital, midway between Buffalo hospitals and Olean General Hospital. “It was great when they decided to locate here,” Campbell said. “(Flights are) used all the time.” Spingville is a medical hub for the surrounding area thanks to Bertrand Chaffee. The hospital’s leadership has taken a number of very thoughtful steps to put the hospital on a positive trajectory for the future. “There’s something to be said for a small community hospital,” Campbell said. “You see people who are your neighbors and there is that extra

level of trust.” It’s the hospital staff that is its strength, she added. “We thrive on our friendliness.” For now, filling the new medical arts building with specialists — and the primary care center — is the task at hand, Campbell said. The hospital also provides skilled employment and has quite an economic impact on the region. “It’s community-owned,” Springville Mayor William Krebs said. “There’s a lot of pride in the operation of the hospital over the decades. There is a lot of community pride.” He’s also excited about the new medical arts building. “The hospital is very important to Springville,” Krebs said. “It provides very

necessary medical services for the village and surrounding towns. It also draws other medical services including private practices. … There’s a real advantage to living here in Springville and having this hospital here.” The mayor noted that the community has always responded to the hospital’s needs. Gary Eppolito, chairman of the Bertrand Chaffee Board of Directors for the past five years, couldn’t agree more. He was born in the hospital, as were his children. He’s retired after having served as Springville mayor and Concord supervisor. “I believe strongly in the community hospital and emergency room,” said Eppolito, who served as mayor

Godard Memorial Hall, Springville, NY


We Love Springville Magazine • Fall/Winter 2019 • Page 21

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED Godard Memorial Hall Today floor. The upper floor was converted into an auditorium, the stage was enlarged, and the stationary seats were changed into moveable ones, so the floor space could be used by various clubs and other types of meetings. Since that time, the Godard Hall has continued to be used by the public for meetings and events, and the courthouse and offices are still being filled. 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! Calista 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 Springville; they lived with her brother, Edward, in 1848. She accumulated her money through teaching and working as a tailor. Later, she inherited 1,500 hundred acres of farming land when her brother Edward died. She distributed most of the land among her heirs. She devoted most of her time to reading and studying, completing the Chautauqua reading course. She received her diploma in 1886 and was a constant patron of the public library. She is buried at Fairview Cemetery in Concord.

How Cascade Park became the Springville Country Club By Jolene Hawkins In 1899, The Buffalo Rochester & Pittsburgh (BR&P) Railway Company secured a farm on the banks of the Cattaraugus, about 150 acres ... where a picnic area was established and called it Cascade Park. It was intended for a place to go after church on Sundays, for social and school gatherings and parties, as well as for family reunions for those that desired a day outing where they could be free from the disturbing elements often found at

pleasure resorts of this kind. By July 1899, one could get round trip tickets from Buffalo for 15 cents! With fine graveled walks that went up and down hillsides, and songbirds that were heard in the woods singing, and the woods themselves were full of maples, beech, elm and evergreen trees, it was always a pleasure to get off the train and walk through the woods.Visitors could go and see the cascade falls as it flowed over the rocky escarpments, or go wading or swimming if they wanted to.

Every year, the popularity of the park grew, as well as the park itself, with the addition of a pavilion, a kitchen building, a dining room, and a dance hall, where 300 couples could dance. The BR&P Railroad was making daily round trips to bring folks from Buffalo down to Springville to enjoy a day in the sun and country at this park. In 1905, the BR&P ordered 15 new coaches for the use of the Cascade Park Run. In 1906, a merry go round was installed at the park for the children. Oh and we can not forget the baseball games that were played there — fun for all ages indeed! In 1922, the BR&P offered the sale of Cascade Park to Springville for the group forming a Country Club. Membership

in the club would be open for everyone and the suggested ideas at the time were tennis, as many courts as necessary, canoeing, (a newly formed dam had created a nearly 2-mile lake) golf, dancing, baseball (free for the local teams), picnic grounds, camping sites, basketball, croquet and lawn bowling. There was already an established train service to the park, and they estimated that the dance hall alone with create a net of $1,000 each summer! The annual dues would be used to keep it running and maintained. Today, the property is the Springville Country Club. Several towns were offered this park, and of course, Springville got it, and the rest, as they say, is history!

A look at Springville 110 years ago

As the 2020s are soon upon us, let’s take a look back at what Springville was like 110 years ago. In 1910, Springville was a popular place with many stores and businesses. There was C T Winner, who seemed to have it all—coats, suits, skirts, furs, dry goods, groceries, flour and he delivered as well — F H Frubus, a grocery store; H D Smith, general merchant; J S Wheeler, clothing merchant; and R B Waite, proprietor of the Antidolar Manufacturing Co. Other businesses included F Schweizer, B L Bensley , Springville Canning Factory, J S Wheeler & Son, Jones Hardware, H H Bury & Co, A L Pingrey, E F Hammond, Choice Groceries and E S Crandall variety store. Each little town would submit a report each week of what went on in their town, who came to visit, who had a baby, who died, and any events that happened. On March 30 in Sardinia, couples attended a dance at the Sardinia House, and Arthur Hopkins moved to a farm on Middle Road. In April in Boston, Mr. Asa Doty was a butter maker in Boston

Creamery and had gone to Portland, and the Weber family built a upper story over the dining room of their home. In November in Glenwood, the weekly report tells how Thomas Wiley and his wife entertained about 20 of their relatives from out of town in the honor of their 50th anniversary. In West Valley, the Ladies Aid Society and the I O O F provided flowers for a funeral that was held there. Other areas that submitted reports were East Concord, Thomas Corner, East Otto, East Ashford, Gaylord’s Corner, Holland, Ashford, North Ashford, Wyandale, Hakes Bridge, Marshfield, Pleasant Valley and Matteson. In return, who ever submitted the article to the newspaper got the paper for free. Because of these great weekly articles, we can follow our forefathers and see what they did and where they went—a treasure for a genealogist. The Griffith Institute even put in weekly articles of events, including basketball game scores, boys’ and girls’ game (the GI girls’ basketball team was awesome that year!), track team, debate club, plays, honor roll for the month, and in that year, 26 students graduated.
