STROLL AROUND NEWFANE: Think spring with the Niagara Shores Garden Club

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — •••

The 45th Olcott Polar Bear “Swim for Sight” is set for March 2. Swimmers are challenged to raise $100 or more and are now seeking donations from friends, family and coworkers. New for this year is the Firefighters Chili Cook-Off. Your $5 donation lets you sample them all, vote for your favorite and take home a Polar Bear mug. Find out more at www.olcottlions.org or email swimforsight@hotmail.com. The Lions will be selling their famous chowder to keep you warm.

Newfane Women’s Lacrosse Club will offer a Chiavetta’s Chicken barbecue dinner during the Polar Bear day festivities on March 1. Cost is $10 and includes a half chicken, potato salad, lettuce salad, roll and butter.  Dessert is optional. The team will be serving the dinners from 12 to 2:30 p.m. or sell-out. The lacrosse team, in its 10th year, raises funds to pay for referees, busing, tournament fees, etc., to encourage the girls to fund their own activities.

“Not every hero wears a cape.” Donate blood at the upcoming American Red Cross Blood Drive on March 3 and you’ll receive a limited-edition window decal with that slogan as a gift. The drive will be held from 1 to 6 p.m. at Faith Lutheran Church, 2730 Transit Road, Newfane. For an appointment call 1-800-RED-CROSS or go to www.redcross.org
