SAVE THE DATE — It has been one full summer in West Seneca, and August is looking to follow suit. Here are a few upcoming community events to keep in mind when planning your month.

The Save Our Western New York Children’s Psychiatric Center advocacy group will hold a BW’s chicken barbecue and basket auction fundraiser from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 13, at the West Seneca Senior Citizens Center, 4620 Seneca St. Admission is free, and dinners are $10 presale or $12 the day of the event. Meals include a barbecued half-chicken, tossed salad, potato salad, roll with butter, beverage and dessert, and will be served until 4:30 p.m. The basket raffle will start after dinner and conclude at 5 p.m.

Proceeds will benefit advocacy efforts to save the Western New York Children’s Psychiatric Center. For tickets, call 435-1597, 668-3401, 830-3171 or 479-2611.

The Friends of the West Seneca Public Library will hold a yard sale from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 19, on the hill adjacent to Town Hall, 1250 Union Road. In the event of inclement weather, the event will be moved to the parking lot in front of the ice rink.

The public is invited to reserve table space for a $20 donation. All proceeds will be used to assist the library. For more information on the yard sale or to reserve a space at the event, call 674-7496.

Fellowship Wesleyan Church will hold a backyard movie night at 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 26, at the church, 1645 Southwestern Blvd., across from the YMCA. Come and watch a family friendly movie and support the missions team’s trip to Guatemala.

The parking lot will open at 7:30 p.m. Attendees are asked to bring a lawn chair, and refreshments will be available for purchase. The event will be held rain or shine. Call the church at 675-9245 for movie details.

LIVING HISTORY — The Arcade and Attica Railroad will host a World War II Weekend at 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 5 and 6. Three vintage engines will pull the train to Curriers Station and back as living history re-enactors talk about the “Greatest Generation.”

Period music will be performed at the Arcade and Curriers stations both days, as well as weapon firing demonstrations. For ticket information, visit www.aarailroad.com or call 948-0505.

JINGLE AND A TUNE — Kevin Clark will entertain the Ebenezer Seniors at 1:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 4, at Ebenezer United Church of Christ, 630 Main St.

Clark plays great “oldish” music that the group is sure to remember. Then, he will play jingles from TV shows and ads, and attendees are challenged to guess where or what it brings to mind. Think about it — can you sing the “Pepsodent” jingle?

Join the Ebenezer Seniors at the church to hear it all. Call 674-4566 for more information.

WEEKLY POLL — We’re always looking for feedback, and one of the ways we go about acquiring it is by posting a new poll each week.

Often the questions come from a pressing issue that may have been discussed at one of the various meetings we attend. Other times, it might be the result of a topic from a story.

If you have a poll question idea, e-mail me at jwaters@beenews.com.
