Stroll Around Newfane: Things are really heating up in Newfane, Olcott areas

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Newfane and Olcott are jumping with things to do, so rush right into spring by dusting off winter’s cobwebs to join your friends and neighbors at local events. Your support is appreciated by many tireless volunteers. Happy Mother’s Day to all moms, adopted and foster moms, crazy aunts, Girl Scout leaders, teachers and all gals who “mother” our children all year through.

Friday is the last of the 9:30 a.m. Spring Story Hours for preschoolers at Newfane Free Library.

 In a rush for Friday’s dinner? Support Juvenile Diabetes research by stopping at Wrights Corners Tops Market Friday for a take-out chicken barbecue, cooked by the Barker Lions. Pre-sale tickets are now on sale at the store for $9.50; $10 on the day of the barbecue. Dinners include a half chicken, two sides and roll and butter. All proceeds go to the JDR fund.
