John Weismantel the Rotary Club of Ellicottville President made a special presentation to Debbie Yantomasi and a small group of the Alley Katz, of a bronze plaque recognizing the group for their great work in Ellicottville.

The Alley Katz are a group of volunteers that plant and maintain the flowers and plants in the village making our village look so great.  They also decorate the gazebo with a tree and lights during the winter season.

John said that the Rotary Club loves their beautiful work and want to insure that their “labor of love” is recognized with this special plaque placed in the planter in front of the town hall.  The Rotary Club also provides funding for this great group yearly to insure the Village is beautiful for our residents and visitors year round. “We feel that the Alley Katz do a great job for the Village and our Rotary Club feels privileged to help with their work,” said John.  “We know that the extra donations made by individuals, business’ and organizations provide a supplement to the funding from the Village and the Town.”  The Rotary Club and their Foundation provide funding and help to a number of our local organizations every year.
