Traci's Hope Fund Raiser on Oct 6

Pictured above: Traci Gibson, center, with her sisters, Terry (left) and Tami (right) from Traci’s Hope 2005

The 9th Annual Traci's Hope Fund Raiser will be held on Saturday, October 6, from 12:00 Noon until 6:00 pm at the Apalachin Field Day grounds in Apalachin. All proceeds from the event will benefit those fighting breast cancer in Broome, Tioga, and Susquehanna Counties. The event features a BBQ, music, raffle table, and lots for the children to do. The event will take place rain or shine. Cost is $12 for adults and $5 for children ages 6 to 12. Traci's Hope is a non-profit organization founded by Traci Gibson who knew firsthand the difficulties of keeping finances afloat while

dealing with breast cancer. Traci wanted to ensure that she was helping many people even after she was gone. To date, Traci's Hope has helped hundreds of people, all of them here in our local communities, just as Traci wanted. With the community support, Traci's Hope has been able to increase the monetary amount given to each recipient. When Traci's Hope first started, they were able to give each recipient $500. Now they grant each recipient $1,000. Traci's family would like to thank you for supporting her dream to help others afflicted with breast cancer in some way.

Apalachin Lions Club News Sight Night Sight Night places the focus on giving this Halloween. This year, some kids will collect more than candy on Halloween. They’ll help Give the Gift of Sight by gathering used eyeglasses while they trick-or-treat in our community. Apalachin Lions along with Tioga Hills and Apalachin Elementary School will be collecting glasses from October 22 through November 1. The used eyeglasses they collect will be recycled and hand-delivered by Lens Crafters and Lions Club volunteers to people who can’t afford them in developing countries such as Mexico, Bolivia, Laos, and Thailand. Look for your used eyeglasses and sunglasses in every nook and cranny of your home or place of work. Someone may come to your door looking for all types of prescription and nonprescription glasses. Children’s glasses are especially in need, as they are in high demand but in short supply. Whether they are big or small, fashionably ‘in’ or ‘out,’ your glasses could change how

someone in a developing country sees the world. If the “ghouls and boys” don’t make it to your house on Sight Night, have no fear. Used eyeglasses can be dropped off year-round at all Lens Crafters stores or the Apalachin Lions Club. Runners Wanted - 5K Walk/Run The Apalachin Lions Club is hosting its Inaugural 5K Walk/Run on October 20, 2012. It will be held at the Apalachin Fireman’s Field Day Grounds at 10:00 am with Registration opening up at 9:00 am. The race will help to benefit the Apalachin Lions Club Activities Fund, with all proceeds going back into the Apalachin/Little Meadows Communities. The entry fee for this is event is $18 (pre-registration and includes an official race T-shirt) and $20 (day of the race, with limited T-shirts available); also a small snack will be available after the race. There will be prizes awarded to the Over winner, Top Male, Top Female, and several different ago brackets. There will also be a Kids Fun Run during the race. Immediately following the 5K run the Apalachin Fire Department will be hosting its annual fall Open House with a Chicken BBQ starting at 12:00 Noon on the grounds.

From left, Deb Schaaf as Linda Loman, Ryan Kay as Happy Loman, Greg Fusare as Willy Loman, and Stephen Marquardt as Biff Loman in the TiAhwaga Community Players' production of the classic 'Death of a Salesman.' Photo by John Dudak. The Ti-Ahwaga Community Players will present Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman October 5, 6, 7, October 12, 13, 14, and October 19, 20, 21 at the TiAhwaga Performing Arts Center, 42 Delphine Street in Owego. Death of a Salesman revolves around the last days of Willy Loman, a failing salesman, who cannot understand why he didn't win success and happiness. Through a series of tragic, soulsearching revelations of his life we discover how his quest for the 'American Dream' kept him blind to the people who truly loved him. "There is no questioning the fact that Death of a Salesman is a timeless and classic work," director James Osborne said. "The writing of Arthur Miller, one of America’s most distinguished playwrights, contains several layers of family dynamics and social commentary as vibrant, relevant and powerful today as it was at his writing of the play in 1948. The challenge of directing this play is in presenting Willy Loman, the common man, with all of the deep emotions evoked by his troubled family relation-

ships while surrounded by the power of business and competition." The cast includes Greg Fusare as Willy Loman, Deb Schaaf as Linda Loman, Stephen Marquardt as Biff Loman, Ryan Kay as Happy Loman, Stan Zawatsky as Charley, Reidan Pitarresi as Bernard, Stacey Jo Oropello as The Woman, Doug Benish as Howard Wagner, Scott Douglas as Stanley, and Kate Hoy as Miss Forsythe. Shows start at 8:00 pm on Friday and Saturday and at 2:00 pm on Sunday. General admission is $18. Friday admission for students with ID cards is $10. Sunday admission for seniors 60 and over is $15. Fine wines, beers, soft drinks and snacks are available to enjoy at your table during the show, and there isn't a bad seat in the house. The show is underwritten in part by Keith A. Nichols, MD, PLLC, and Levene, Gouldin & Thompson, LLP. To reserve seats, call the Ti-Ahwaga Performing Arts Center at 687-2130 and log on to www.tiahwaga.com for more information about the center.

The horse, named Ghostie, is a flea bitten grey (almost white with little brown freckles all over), about 14 hands (small horse/large pony sized). He may still be wearing a black synthetic saddle, and a light brown bitless bridle. The accident occurred in Apalachin, in the vicinity of McFall Road, McFadden Road, Rhodes Road, the power lines, etc. The horse was tracked to the Apalachin Creek the day of the accident but, has NOT been seen since that day. He may be very shy and scared. He could be anywhere in the vicinity of Pennsylvania Avenue, near Chestnut Ridge in Apalachin, all the

way cross-country to Montrose Turnpike in Owego where he lives. If you see Ghostie, or see any signs of him, or if you have any clues as to where he may be, call Susan (607) 972-5523, Holly (607) 687-1601, or Karen (607) 239-0229.

The Southern Tier Chapter of New York State Women, Inc. (formerly Owego B P W) would like to express our gratitude to all the women and men who fight for the right of women to receive a paycheck equal to that of a man doing the same work with the same educational back ground. Please make sure you take the time, on November 6, 2012, to cast your vote. This is a valuable right and privilege that should never be taken for granted, women-owned firms continue to grow in number and economic stature. They are standing toe-to-toe with competitors in a broad range of industries, including construction and transportation, where women-owned firms are just as likely as all firms in those sectors to generate more than $500,000 in annual revenue. The growth in the number (up 54 percent), employment (up 9 percent) and revenues (up 58 percent) of women-owned firms over the past 15 years exceeds the growth rates of all but the largest, publicly-traded firms. As of 2012, it is estimated that there are more than 8.3 million women-owned businesses in the United States, generating nearly $1.3 trillion in revenues and employing nearly 7.7 million people, according to the second annual “State of Women-Owned Businesses Report,” commissioned by American Express. Of the 10 million plus women-owned businesses in the U.S., only 3% have annual revenue of more than $1 million dollars, compared to 6% of all male-owned businesses.
