Program cancelled

The Chautauqua County Historical Society’s Nov. 4 speaker program at the James Prendergast Library in Jamestown has been cancelled.

The event was to feature Leo Duliba leading a presentation on the history of Local Banks and Bank Notes of Chautauqua County. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, Mr. Duliba is unavailable for the presentation. The historical society’s programming committee did not feel it would be appropriate to find another speaker on short notice and as a result, the event has been cancelled. No makeup date has been determined. The historical society apologizes for any inconvenience this has caused those who were planning to attend.

The next event to take place will be our Holiday Tea scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 18, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Our year of programming will conclude with our annual Holiday Open House on Sunday, Dec. 10, from 2 to 4 p.m. Both events are taking place the the McClurg Museum in Westfield.

For more information, call the Historical Society at (716) 326-2977 or email CCHS@McClurgMuseum.org.

Clarification

In an article on page D1 of Saturday’s Times Observer, “Eldercare Senior Expo returns Oct. 27,” it was noted that “Expo attendees are cautioned not to park in the TOPS plaza parking lot unless they are going to be shopping in the plaza that day. The parking lot owner is not allowing anyone other than plaza employees or shoppers to park there.”

A representative of Tops has clarified that it is the owner of the parking lot discouraging parking for the Expo in the plaza parking lot and not Tops itself, which is actually a sponsor of the event.
