The Great Valley Senior Group (including the towns of Great Valley, Salamanca, Ellicottville, Humphrey and Mansfield) will meet at the Great Valley Fire Hall on Wednesday, Aug. 13. This is our annual picnic, and the firemen will be barbecuing chicken for us. Please bring a dish to pass and your own place setting. The luncheon will be served at 1 p.m. Come early to visit with your friends. Call Yvonne Darts at (716) 945-3279 for more information.

We still have a few openings for our Thursday, Aug. 21 trip to the Niagara Power Project-Power Vista, in Lewiston, and the Kingston Trio Concert at Artpark. The bus will be leaving the fire hall at 12:30 p.m. and returning at approximately 10–10:30 p.m. Call ASAP!

We will be signing up for our Sept. 16 trip to tour Tara in Clark, Pa. This trip includes a family style lunch, a tour of Daffin’s Chocolate Candies in Sharon, Pa., and Wendell August Forge, America’s oldest and largest forge (located in Mercer, Pa.) producing hand-wrought ornamental metalware. For information on either trip, call Barb Sergel at (716) 699-2905 or Barb Lavtar at (716) 699-4431.
