Brooks Memorial Hospital Auxiliary fundraising events

As the holidays approach let the Auxiliary of Brooks Memorial Hospital help you with your gift list and you, in turn, will support the Aux-iliary’s fundraising efforts.

Lobby Sales sponsored by the Auxiliary, which are always open to the public, run from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. in the Brooks Memorial Hospital lobby. Don’t miss these upcoming sales featuring vendors that will have something for everyone: Tower Gifts on Oct. 24 and 25; Park Lane Jewelry on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1; Pottery by Cynthia Fitzgerald, Burning Asphalt Sauces, and Silpado Jewelry on Nov. 21; Black Thorn Basketry, Blessings Everywhere Painted by Shelly, and Park Lane Jewelry on Nov. 22; Books are Fun on Dec. 16 and 17.

All proceeds from the sales allow the Auxiliary to continue its long history of purchasing new equipment and funding improvements to Brooks Memorial Hospital. The Auxiliary thanks the public for their continued support.

Revive Dunkirk followup meeting set for today

A meeting to follow up on the Revive Dunkirk event will be held today at 6 p.m. in the SUNY Tech Incu-bator. The goal is to prioritize suggestions made by Partners for a Livable West-ern New York and select five to move forward with citizen volunteer energy and effort. The event is free and we hope will lead to positive changes in the waterfront and downtown neighborhoods.

Fredonia Village Hall to be closed Nov. 29

Fredonia’s village offices will be closed on Friday, Nov. 29, the day after Thanksgiving. As in the past, each village employee in the village hall is instructed to use a personal/vacation day at that time.

Parks Commission meeting tonight

The Chautauqua County Parks Commission will meet at 7 p.m. today at the Chautauqua County Airport in Jamestown. The public is welcome to attend.

Fredonia to hold special meeting at noon today

The Fredonia Village Board will hold a special meeting at noon today in the village hall.

The purpose of the meeting is to pass an amended version of the resolution for a two-year extension of its fire protection district contract with the town of Pomfret. The original resolution was accepted at a special meeting Monday, but a typo went unnoticed. The cost for fire protection services is based on the amount of the “taxable assessed valuation.” The resolution stated the charge is based on the “assessed valuation,” solely.
