Sinclairville almost ready for history fair

CHARLOTTE CENTER – Sinclairville is preparing for the 15th annual history fair which will take place Sept. 14. This year’s highlights include fireworks, a classic car cruise-in and a dog show sponsored by Purina which will accept and show all breeds.

Valley Historical Society Chairman Larry Barmore said at a recent village board meeting that he is looking forward to a musical group coming to the event this year which “grabs people out of the audience and teaches them how to square dance.”

Barmore said they are still putting the final touches on the movie at the fire hall, which will show at 7 p.m. Other events will include outhouse races, horse-drawn wagon rides, a craft show and a farmer’s market.

A motion was approved for Code Enforcement Officer David Crossley to attend required training in September. Crossley said that by holding the conference locally, it saves local municipalities money.

He said, “We can cut costs dramatically. We’ve even been getting people from Rochester and Buffalo coming down.”

The course is three days long and held at the Chautauqua Suites in Mayville. Code enforcers in the area have complimented the program and its convenience.

The Village’s summer recreation program has come to an end with a big thank you to the Sinclairville 76ers, the meals on wheels program for the Cassadaga Valley area which helped supply food to the program.

Deputy Mayor Patti France said of the program, “We got through it and the kids seemed to be having fun. The 76ers were so good to us all summer long. The kids all had a great time.”

France added, “We have things to work through for next year.”
