BACK TO SCHOOL — Every year, The Bee looks for a bright-eyed student to be pictured on our front pages for the first week of September.

For families seeing their little ones off for the first time, consider memorializing the milestone with a picture in The Bee.

If you’d like your child to be featured for that week, email West Seneca editor Jennifer Waters at jwaters@beenews.com or call 204-4922.

FEELIN’ FELINE — The Wild Whiskers Inn, a feral and friendly cat rescue and adoption nonprofit, is in desperate need of people to foster their feline friends.

The main caretaker has recently undergone heart surgery and is recovering. Until then, the organization is looking for short term — 30-day — foster homes.

Many of the cats are shy and need exceptional individuals who can offer love and patience while they adjust to a new environment.

The organization asks that all animal lovers share their story, and for those with a little extra room in their hearts and homes, to visit the website at wildwhiskerinn.org to volunteer as a foster person for the cats. Food and litter may be supplied if needed.

All cats have been spayed or neutered, and received their rabies and distemper vaccinations. The adoption fee is $50. For information, email wildwhiskerinn@gmail.com.

MOVIE NIGHTS— If anyone is interested in enjoying a movie outside, the Chestnut Ridge Conservancy has the event for you.

The conservancy will present Disney’s “Ratatouille” from 8:15 to 11 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 20, on the lawn next to the Chestnut Ridge Casino.

Another movie night will be offered in September, when the conservancy presents the Disney animated version of “Beauty and the Beast.” The movie will run from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16, on the lawn.

If it rains either day, the movies will be moved inside the casino.

For more information on the movie nights, visit www.ChestnutRidge Conservancy.org.

WHAT’S IN YOUR GARAGE? — The crew from “American Pickers,” a documentary series filmed for The History Channel, will be in the region next month to find people in the area who may possess antique collections with interesting stories behind them.

The show follows hosts Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz as they travel the country in search of valuable antiques. The show is seeking leads regarding treasured antiques in the area.

If you or someone you know has a large, private collection or accumulation of antiques that the pickers can look through, send your name, phone number, location and description of the collection — including photos — to americanpickers@cineflix.com. You may also call 855-OLD-RUST.

For more information about the show, visit www.history.com.
