Cruise Night marks year's final farmer's market

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Ah, those cool nights! After our scorcher of a summer those snuggle-under-a-blanket temps make it hard to get out of bed, but it’s still summer, with lots to do before those school bells ring on Sept. 4. What is it about the start of school that instantly makes me think of pumpkins, hot cocoa and sweaters? It might be those trees I passed on the Lake Road yesterday, already turning into shades of orange and red. Autumn is my favorite season, and I’d like it a lot more if it wasn’t followed by the harsh winter. Still, we are blessed to be able to enjoy all the seasons where we live.

• Just a few more days to win the Friends of the Barker Free Library August basket drawing, donated by the Barker Garden Club. The basket features garden supplies and a $25 gift card from Zehr’s. Tickets can be purchased at the library’s circulation desk. For kids, the Niagara Frontier Reading Council has donated a basket full of books and school supplies. Each child receives one free ticket for the drawing with each library visit.

• Pratt Elementary Pre-K orientation takes place at 2 p.m. Wednesday for those entering pre-K this year. Make sure the camera has batteries, mom!

• Win an overnight getaway, with a deluxe king room at the Garden Place Hotel, dinner for two at Salvatore’s Italian Gardens and a breakfast buffet. Tickets are six for $5 and the proceeds support our community market. The drawing is at 8 p.m. at the farmer’s market on Thursday. You can get tickets at Thee Barker Store as well, but hurry.

• Help support the Eastern Niagara Satellite of the Variety Kids Telethon by stopping by their Chinese auction in the park on Thursday. They will sell tickets beginning at 5 p.m., for $5 a sheet of 25; or three sheets for $10. Try your luck on the baskets, prizes and gift certificates. Drawings start at 7:30 p.m. and winners need not be present. Look for the auction on the east side of the gazebo in Barker Village Park on Main Street.
