The Alley Katz are in the process of planning the winter decorations and flowers for spring/summer 2014 to beautify our village.

For those of you who may not be familiar with the work of the Alley Katz, we are the group of volunteers that plant and maintain the flowers in the village and also decorate the gazebo with a tree and lights during the winter season.

Our funding is received from the village and the town, but is not enough to cover all the expenses we incur. Many private individuals as well as some businesses make donations to make sure that we do not run out of funds.

Lately due to rising costs, our resources have dwindled to the point where we may not be able to continue all the work we presently do. We are asking for any financial help that you can manage. Anything would be greatly appreciated to help us continue to make our village as special as it is.

For the Taste of Ellicottville weekend, we will have the yellow watering can in front of Anew Beginning Massage and Spa (9 Monroe St.) for donations.

Donations can also be made by check payable to: Alley Katz, P.O. Box 1407, Ellicottville, NY 14731. If you would prefer to make a cash donation, please contact Debbie Yantomasi at (716) 699-5239 or (716) 803-3388.

Thank you for your support!
