c day withlots and lots of smiles! A tip of
hat to Mr. TomO’Conner, who introduced usto Children 1

With the recent torrential downpours experienced earlier this week, Ellicottville, alongwith many other communities in Western New York, felt the effects as a result of
oodingalong Great Valley Creek and Elk Creek (next to Quality Market). A number of homesexperienced
ooded basements and washed up debris along property lines. The rainswere to blame for evacuations and travel bans in Gowanda, Silver Creek and EastOtto. Traf
c was stopped Monday morning coming into Ellicottville as knee high water
ooded the downtown business district and connecting streets. Although the
oodingin Ellicottville has subsided, there is still much cleanup to do, which the Village DPWis diligently working hard to complete. The creeks, even
ve days later, remain at highlevels. Top Photos/Shad Nowicki & James Czora; Bottom Photos/Mike Painter
BONARESPONDS HEADS TO GOWANDA
St. Bonaventure BonaResponds crews will aid in cleanup efforts Aug. 14-16 in Gowanda, where authorities estimate
ooding has damaged a third of the homes in this smallvillage. Volunteers will help haul debris, clean out basements, cut up downed trees andshovel mud. A crew will leave the John J. Murphy Professional Building (West Endof campus) at 10am on Friday, Aug. 14 and return about 7pm. Volunteers will leave at10am Saturday, Aug. 15 and return on Sunday, Aug. 16. (They will spend Saturdaynight at the Gowanda Fire Hall.)
