I’d like you to meet my Dad, Samuel Pellerito
To the world you may be just one person, but to one person, you just may be theworld. Thank you from the Western New York Kidney Connection.
He is 62 years old and in need of a kidney. My Dad has Polysistic Kidney Disease andhis kidney function has greatly decreased in the past few years.My Dad is a wonderful husband, father of 3 and grandfather of 5. My parents havebeen happily married for 41 years. He enjoys playing golf and spending time with hisfamily and friends.My Dad has had a long, full
lling career of 36 years in the Jamestown Public Schoolsystem. Currently he is in formation at the Christ of Kings Seminary in the DeaconateProgram. He serves as President of the Southern Tier Kidney Foundation and has alsobeen involved in Koinonia and Cursillo.My Dad leads a very spiritual life with God and gives everything he has humbly. Henever complains even though we know he doesn’t always feel well. Receiving a kidneywould be a blessing to him and our whole family.
If you are blood type “B” and would like to be Sam’s living kidney donor, pleasecontact Jeanette Ostrom at (716) 450-8958 or e-mail Sam at spellerito@stny.rr.com

Last week, it was broughtto the community’s attentionthat the food pantry is empty.I then realized, I don’t evenknow where the food pantryis! How many other residentsand visitors have the sameproblem? Many visitorsstaying in Ellicottville leavefull cans, bottles and othersupplies in the rented condosor hotel rooms. It would begreat if they knew where theycould leave these to bene
tour community.As well, just recently Icontacted a friend to
ndwhere I could send clothingto help the Family SupportCenter.Would it be possible for yourpaper to have a public servicecolumn? I am sure there areother charities needing help – both through the holidayseason as well as daily. Couldthis column contain drop-off areas, phone numbers, and anyother information pertinent totheir needs?I am sure anything the papercould do would be greatlyappreciated by all charitiesconcerned.Thank you.

Publisher’s Note: The Ellicottville Food Pantry islocated inside the United Church of Ellicottville, 53 Elizabeth Street, phone 716-699-4003.

‘Why I Love the Michael Kerns Starz for Youth Ball’
 
I cannot wait for the3
rd
annual Michael KernsMemorial Starz for Youth Ballon Friday, Oct. 16 at HolidayValley’s Yodeler Lodge. Thisis my absolute favorite upscaleparty with over 200 peopleattending. Put on by theRotary Club of Ellicottville’sFoundation for Youth to raisefunds for their many worthyprojects, this event is over-the-top.By far it is the best foodserved at any venue, with Beef Tenderloin that melts in yourmouth and a desert table thatwill drive anyone off their diet!Of course I am inclined to saythis as my daughter has a handin both. I had a sneak peak atthe menu this year provided bythe best restaurants in town,with their chefs looking to berecognized for their signaturedish.When you arrive, youare greeted with a glass of champagne to accompany thegreat hors
 
d’ oeuvres servedby BOCES culinary studentswhile you listen to the greatmusic of EZ3.Riley’s Bar and Restaurant joins this year with BaconWrapped Stuffed PorkTenderloin. If you had the CrabCakes from Tips Up last year,you won’t be disappointed asthey will be back along withDouble Diamond’s ClamsCasino. Seafood aboundswith signature dishes fromThe Birdwalk and EllicottvilleBrewing Company. TheSilver Fox and Myer’s SteakHouse did two of my favoritedishes last year, and both saidthey plan to put that to shamewith their 2009 dishes. Theset-up is stations with reservedseating so you can enjoy asmuch as you want. BostonCulinary, who is hosting theevent, provides their uniquePotato station while BonjourBakery’s Bread and BrickCity Gourmet’s Salad stationsround out the offering. Theambiance is set by Dina’s atthe Mont with beautiful table-scapes.As mentioned before, thedessert table leaves nothingto be desired. Watson’sChocolates abound with extraspecial cakes, cookies andtarts from Tom, Dina andCathy Kerns.I love the silent auctionas there is always a greatbargain and it is fun to watchas the wine lovers bid on therare wine offered in the liveauction. After dinner youcan enjoy “The Strangers,Buffalo’s party rock band. Orlike me you can visit the loungeupstairs for conversation ora little socializing with yourfriends.Beyond the food and thecompany, this is one of themost fun events of the year.For those of you who knewMichael Kerns, you know thatthis is an event he would haveloved.I already have my tickets,as this is not going to be anevent that I miss. So don’twait to get your tickets - itwill be a sellout again thisyear. As usual, I will pick outsomething special to wear, butremember: this is Ellicottvilleso the dress is always a littlemore casual.
 Joe DiPasquale
Publisher’s Note: Tickets tothe Michael Kerns Memorial Starz for Youth Ball canbe purchased at The Barn Restaurant, the Gin Mill, Balloons, any Rotary Clubmember, or by calling Rotarymember Kegs Keighley at 716-699-8758.

Ah – October in Ellicottville – does it get any better? Thisall-too-brief season is myfavorite, and I’ll bet you afree trip on the “NightmareHayride” I’m not alone. We’reon the very cusp of Fall Fest’09 and the village is bracingfor yet another successful(and economically important)cultural happening. And thenthere’s the shopping …If you’re lucky enough tolive around here, you have adistinct advantage over ourbeloved visitors who’ll bedown in droves next weekend.I speak, of course, of beingable to hunt down the pre-FFdeals and specials before FFeven arrives! Getting readyfor tent and sidewalk salestakes more than just a littlepreparation, and our hard-working merchants have beengetting ready over the last fewweeks. End result? Most of your favorite stores in townhave their bargain racks readyto go – and don’t you justlove bargains? Clothing, skiequipment, decorative knick-knacks, jewelry, furniture,artwork – it’s all got to go,folks. And go it will nextweekend, so why not get a jump on the competition andstart shopping THIS weekend?The big ski tent will be setup THIS weekend! Go now,and be aggressive! I know – I’m making it sound likea competition. Well, take itfrom this ’08 Shopping SilverMedalist, (narrowly missedgold last year), buy early andbuy often … Then, come FallFestival weekend, you canskip the frantic frenzy andrelax in knowing you scoopedeveryone on the “really BIGdeals” … Sneaky, yes, but all’sfair in love and shopping.So dear readers, get out yourcheckbooks and credit cardsand get crackin’! The proverbialearly bird always gets the worm.Until next week …

Lawrence saysorganizers set up “a veryaggressive itinerary” of everal stops, so he could see“the very best of what bothcounties have to offer” inerms of tourism attractionsand accommodations. “We hadgreat fun showing him areaamenities like Ellicottville,oliday Valley, Onovillearina, and Chautauquanstitution.” The tour traveled“just shy of eight hundrediles in four days” throughhe two counties, this time bycar, not horse.For their part, Holidayalley was happy to welcomeom Seay as their guest.ane Eshbaugh, Director of arketing at Holiday Valleyaid, “He’s a really great guyith a great personality, reallyfunny. We were able to showim some of the things that areavailable to people when theyare not riding.” She pointedout that there are plenty of hings to do in Cattaraugusounty, on and off the trails.Seay commented, “I’ve neverfelt more welcome, moreat home” in this area. Heappreciated the hospitality of he New York Horse Counciland is considering includinghe Southern Tier as partof a possible “major triparound New York focusingon this area with horses andagons,” perhaps next fallor the following spring. Thedea would be to “highlighthe people, the beauty, and theattributes of this area.” Headded, “I cannot wait to comeack here.”Seay was raised on a farm,and harvesting corn was oneof the tasks with which he wasnvolved. Watching the localmish community harvestcorn brought back memoriesof his youth. He went on to saythat Southern Tier residentshave outdoor opportunities“that other communitieswould just beg to have,”noting that people living here“don’t realize” it. He alsocommented that the peoplehere “are just the icing on thecake.” He noted that residentsmust seize the opportunity tomaintain trails and keep themfrom being closed, in light of pending government cutbacksto parks.During his visit, Seay metwith members of the SenecaNation. He has offered tocome back and “help recordhistory of their elders” onvideo and audio for theSeneca-Iroquois NationalMuseum in Salamanca. “Iwas truly inspired and felta kinship” with the Senecapeople. “If they want us to(record their history), we willdo it.” Seay would also like toreturn to the Amish Countryof Western New York, “toshow the meaning behindwhat they do and why theydo it.” Seay had originallyintended to make one, half-hour long show about his visithere. But plans have changed.“There were so many placesto see and visit, there’s justno way to get all of this in oneshow. So we think we will doa show (maybe two), but we’llalso show short segments on avisit to this place or that, or oninteresting individuals we’vemet.” One or two-minutesegments will be spotlightedin a number of shows, startingthe
rst of the year in 2010.For example, Cherry Creekis a “wonderful, wonderful”place, but a visit to the Amishthere cannot be shown intwenty to thirty seconds.Viewers should stay alert earlyin January and will be informedon Tom Seay’s website, www.bestofamericabyhorseback.com. His network, RFD TV, iscarried by Direct TV and DishNetwork. “We may try to makespecial arrangements withsome of the cable systems” inthe area to give them a copy of the show, so they could air itlocally. Seay notes that RFDhas an agreement with Time-Warner, so “we’ll make sure itgets on.”
