Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Good morning, dear readers: How’s everyone this week? As you may have heard, our first event at the new Wilson Dog Park went very well. Thanks go to the Wilson Lions Club and, in particular, Lion Debbie Hendricks for organizing such a fun event. Afterward, I was presented a check for $430 from the Lions Club to benefit the dog park. Hopefully, the Barkus Parade will become an annual event.
The outdoor movie series sponsored by Wilson Community Enhancement Charity continues Thursday with “The Croods.” All movies begin at dusk. Be sure to bring your own blanket or chair.
Ransomville Rural Retirees will meet from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Sept. 5 at Ransomville Fire Hall, Route 93. Alongside a pot luck dinner, there will be door prizes, raffles and music by a keyboard player. Also, the club’s annual Chinese auction will be held. Members are reminded to bring along whatever they’re donating for the auction. Remember, your trash is someone else’s treasure. For more information, call Jan Edgerton at 778-8063.
A Save-A-Pet fundraiser will be held Sept. 7 at Chestnut Ridge Park, Shelter 8. It’s a memorial for one of our Save-A-Pet dogs, Jenni , who passed away suddenly.
To register, go to the “A Mile of Jenni” page on Facebook and print out the form. For more information about the walk and/or donations, contact Kelly at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Colleen at 208-8243. There will be basket raffles, Team Jenni bracelets, a bounce house and more.
All proceeds are for Save-A-Pet. In addition to money, the organization could use blankets, dog food, toys, et cetera.
Got fresh produce to share? Consider passing it on to the Wilson Community Food Pantry.
That’s a suggestion from pantry volunteer Janet Hoffman, who reports that the pantry recently “passed” site review by the Western New York Food Bank and is getting lined up to order the majority of its food from the bank.
