The Resource Training Center Says Designate a Sober Driver this July 4th

 

The Fourth of July is a favorite American holiday filled with fun, food, fireworks, friends and family. But celebrating can quickly turn to tragedy when people choose to drive after drinking. Monica Farrar, director of The Resource Training Center in Amherst, is urging everyone to plan ahead this Independence Day and designate a sober driver! 

“The Fourth of July festivities can be so much fun,” said Farrar. “People make plans for the partying, but too many drivers don’t plan ahead to get home safely.”

”Taste of the Fair” Back by Popular Demand at the Erie County Fair!!!

”Taste of the Fair” Back by Popular Demand at the Erie County Fair!!!

Food is one of my favorite things at the Fair.  I love all kinds of Fair foods!  But this is the deal.... no matter how long you have been going to the Fair, there have to be some things that you have never tried.  Sometimes you just run out of “Fair Time” to try them all.  Last year, our friends over at the Fairgrounds launched a quite unique idea.  Many Fair vendors were offering one or more of their specialty items at a special Fair price.  I thought it was a really great idea.

Sometimes you would like to try some Fair food item that you have never had, but maybe the size is too big, or maybe you are almost out of money, and can’t spend your last for a food item, but this “Taste of the Fair” gives you the opportunity to try the food for the special Fair price of just $2.  This is a great way to check out many of the stands that you haven’t explored yet.  You will have all day on Thursday, August 20th to do just that!
