SHORELINE BYLINE: Activities heat up throughout Wilson area

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Good morning dear readers: How’s everyone this week? June is bustin’ out all over. We are so busy here in the Village of Wilson, it’s almost impossible to keep up.

Wilson Dog Park needs volunteers

Now that the weather is finally improving, more and more people are enjoying our Wilson Dog Park. I was somewhat incapacitated for a few weeks this winter and spring and was not able to check out the dog park. The weather was really rotten as well. Then Tommy Boy the JRT had some health problems. Everything is on the mend now, however, I was a little shocked at the condition of the dog park the other day. We need some volunteers to tend to the garbage detail and general pick-up. If you take your dog to enjoy the park, please consider volunteering to help us keep it clean. We need garbage detail every Tuesday as the dumpster is emptied on Wednesday mornings. If you could help once a month we would really appreciate it. Give me a call at 751-4146 if you can help us and the dogs to keep our park in tip-top shape. Bags are provided for your convenience.

Ransomville Faire planned

The Ransomville Community Faire will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Ransomville Library grounds next the school on Ransomville Road. Events and displays include antique tractors, a classic car cruise, a basket raffle and the Hot Country Liners Dance team performing at 1 p.m. There will be food for sale, a plant sale by the garden club, a book sale, ice cream, clowns and a magician. Live music will be provided by “Critical Mass” and “Step In Tyme.” For more information, call 791-4494 or 433-0187.

Wilson Star Search continues

Wilson Star Search continues at dusk (weather permitting) Saturday at Krueger Park, 350 Ontario St. Have you ever wondered what all those bright spots in the sky? Local resident Steve Smith, along with fellow members of the Buffalo Astronomical Association, will set up their scopes for views of the stars, planets, galaxies and more. Do you have a telescope and are unsure of it's use? Come a little early if you want to learn about telescopes. This is a free event, just bring your curiosity and maybe a lawn chair. For more information contact Steve at 751-6369 or visit http://www.buffaloastronomy.com/
