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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
