Libraries are the source of information and help in all forms. The new computer program at the Wayland Library that will be up and running by December will be especially helpful to people looking for employment. There will be skilled people to assist you.

Those of us who are assembling family histories know how important cemeteries are to the search. They contain a great amount of history. Ed and Helen Sick, Lois Whitford and Harry and Carol Reynolds were with the bus group sponsored by the Steuben County Historical Society that toured several area cemeteries. Also among the group was the late Sally Patchin (per Carol in costume) Carol prepared a brochure on Sally’s life and distributed them to everyone along with mini baskets, replicas of Sally’s famous baskets. Carol always goes the extra mile. She is so generous in sharing her many talents.

Congratulations to Mark and Adriana Didas of Amherst on the birth of their second son, Zachary Robert, born Oct. 11 at Sisters Hospital, Buffalo. Also congratulations to grandparents Bob and Sara Didas.


Jane Congdon is in need of shoe boxes. Last year, she prepared more than 40 boxes for children that are sent to needy children around the world through the Samaritan Purse program sponsored by Franklin Graham’s Operation Christmas Child. She wants to do more this year. If you have an empty box to donate as soon as possible, leave with Jane or at the post office.


We have to move when the weather permits to mow the grass, rake leaves or harvest from the garden. We have corn stalks for the taking if anyone wants to decorate. Is there a hunter who would be interested in a woolrich jacket? It is very warm but heavy, size 48.


Happy birthday greetings to John Reynolds, who celebrated 85 years on Oct. 27. He lives at Legacy Aptartment 129, 1545 Erie Station Road, Henrietta, NY 14467.
