Rotary Funds Outdoor Gathering Space

Thanks to a group of volunteers and local businesses, the Rotary Auditorium at the Town Center now has a great new outdoor space. A large, paving stone patio was installed this past week by a group of local volunteers.

Many thanks to Karl Northrup of J.D. Northrup Construction who provided the equipment that made the job go smoothly. The hard-working crew led by Joe Patti from Holiday Valley and Sean Heim, owner of New Leaf Landscaping, did the 20’ X 40’ patio in record time.

The crew of John Burrell, Justin Dineen, Bart Frank, Bud King, Bob McCarthy, John Northrup and Fred Witt had a ton of fun making this new patio a reality. The Rotary Club funded the project to add the patio, which overlooks the Nannen Arboretum, as part of the Rotary Auditorium, enhancing this great new venue.

The auditorium is available to rent by the community for any event. The Rotary Club of Ellicottville will continue to make improvements to the auditorium as part of their ongoing service to the community.

To book the auditorium/patio, call Justin Dineen, the Town Center’s facilities manager (including Nannen Arboretum), at (716) 498-6467 or email
