Lovers of outdoor sports will have the chance to peruse and purchase products during the Spring Sportsman Show held at Green Gable Village in Great Valley this Saturday and Sunday. Jim Miller, event organizer, said the show would feature products ranging from fi shing and hunting supplies to trapping and target shooting and everything in between. He said that there would also be antiques and collectibles for sale, and customers could fi nd some military surplus items as well. The show will take place from 9am- 4pm on Saturday, and from 9am- 3pm on Sunday. The show is open to the public, and admission is $4 for adults, children under 12-years-old can enter free. During the show, people will have
the opportunity to buy, sell and trade with the various vendors. There will be refreshments available during the show, and there is plenty of parking available. There will also be armed security at the show, so patrons can feel comfortable about bringing their valuable antiques and collectibles for sale or trade. Miller said a Cattaraugus County Pistol Permit Clerk would be at the show both Saturday and Sunday, allowing for the legal sale of handguns, according to New York State law. The Little Valley Sons of the American Legion is presenting the Sportsman Show, with proceeds from the show used to benefi t the organization. The Sons of the American Legion

An Adirondack chair with a custom fl air … and the public has an opportunity to collect them? An innovative summer fundraiser is only a few days away. As a fundraiser, the Cattaraugus County Arts Council teamed with Allegany State Park to put 18 Adirondack chairs on display within the State Park, in Salamanca, New York. Nestled in the enchanted Mountains, Allegany State Park is a fantastic way to relax, and this summer check out some really unique Adirondack chairs. The chairs will be on display from June 1-August 14, 2009, when they will be sold to the public. Bids for the chairs can be made all summer long at the CCAC website. Adirondack chairs are an icon for summer décor in Western New York. Back in 1903, or so the story goes, a man wanted to build a truly comfortable lawn chair to furnish his summer home in the heart of New York State’s Adirondack forest preserve. Thomas Lee began nailing pine boards together, with their

On Saturday, May 23, over 30 members of the Lowry family, in addition to members of the Ellicottville Memorial Library Board, gathered for the ribbon cutting ceremony to offi cially open the Lowry Family Patio. Last fall, Tom Lowry made a generous donation of his time, talent and materials towards a beautiful new patio located at the base of the hill behind the library. The Lowry family has dedicated this area in memory of Marjorie Lowry who, having been the mother of ten children, certainly understood the importance of education in children’s lives. We know she would be pleased to have such a wonderful area named in her memory. It is a perfect addition to the library and will be enjoyed by the community for years to come. What a thoughtful gift and a great way to help the library continue to grow! The new library has been referred to as “Ellicottville’s gathering room” and it is so named because of the spirit of generosity and good will that lovingly went into, and continues to go into, the project by so many people. The Board of Directors thanks Tom for his generous donation. The Lowry family’s support and commitment to the library is truly appreciated. Photos/Gary Kinn
With materials donated by Fitzpatrick & Weller and the Home Depot, students in the Collins Correctional Facility constructed the chairs. After being constructed they were hand-painted by area artists with their own unique style and fl air. Once seen, you’ll want at least one of them. And lucky for us (the public), if you see a chair, and envision lounging in it on your own property, you can purchase it! On Friday August 14 at 6pm, all of the chairs will be auctioned off at the Full Moon Beach Party.

Didn’t I just write last week Memorial Day weekend was a great time to relax, enjoy some downtime, visit with family, eat
barbeque, etc.? I think I also mentioned you could use the time to “fi nally get those fl owers planted.” I’m now wondering just how many of you spent the long holiday weekend – the WHOLE weekend – toiling on pre-summer outdoor projects. No barbeque and no relaxing. Loving family members staying far away for fear they would be sucked into your exhausting and endless list of late spring chores. Judging by the number of people I saw Saturday at the garden store, I’ll wager quite a few of us were relieved to get back to work on Tuesday! But what a weekend – more
than once I overheard someone exclaim, “This is why we live in Upstate New York.” Yes, the sun was glorious, the temperatures were just perfect and the mood was defi nitely upbeat! This combination, along with the long holiday weekend, made for a Memorial Day holiday that should go down in the record books as one of the best ever. So, dear readers, I’ll leave you with this thought: always remember to stop and smell the roses, but never forget how much work it takes to get them in the ground and blooming! Until next week …
