On the eve of the NYS budget vote, this video seemed too perfect for the moment. We aren't going to "wax political" here on this blog, and we'd encourage you to resist that urge as well. Tonight…it's simply a reminder. It's about excitement. It's about opportunity. And it's given to us by a child. A middle school boy with a vision…reminding us that they (students) have some of the answers all of us adults have been searching for. We hope you enjoy this short video as much as we did. We hope it sparks open conversation like it did for us. And most of all we hope it instills a fresh perspective as you start your week.
Education is about the journey, not just the destination. Don't miss the opportunity to enjoy the conversation along the way.
Help us welcome a new Fredonia business!
Little B.E.'s Consignment opened this month in downtown Fredonia. It's located at 53 West Main Street. (Right on the corner of Forest Place and West Main Street). It's always exciting to welcome new businesses to our area, so
we thought this was great "FOOD FOR THOUGHT".
Stop in and meet the owners, Brian and Pam Clukey. We don't want to steal their thunder, so make sure you stop in yourself to learn more about Little B.E.'s Consignment!
And please share the good news about a new downtown business! The Twitter and Facebook share buttons are inches away. (hint, hint). Click away, friends!
Lots of red that isn't here anymore on #TBT. Brick streets and the Barker Street Hose Company. Decades later one of the all-time great restaurants in the history of Fredonia opened. Some of the best home-made pies ever served!
Their name encompassed the building you are looking at.
Comment below if you remember the name of the Restaurant.
BONUS points if you tell us what your favorite desert was!
Have you joined the PickleBall craze?
When we first heard about PickleBall the other day, we knew we had to feature it!
Do you play PickleBall, or know someone who does? We think that it's time to find a place to turn into PickleBall Central in Northern Chautauqua County!
What do you think? Would you play?
What about those of you who are "Snowbirds" coming back to WNY. Do you play when you are in the Florida sun?
We'd love to hear more about the game and any stories you can share!
We want to see you. Face to face. For us, I guess you could say it's all about intentional accessibility.
Grab a box of tissues…you are going to need them!
We love this short video clip! What a tremendous reminder that life is so fragile. And even more, that we have the opportunity to bring hope and love into someone's life that needs it so very much.
Go do "SOMETHING SWEET" this Saturday for someone that needs it!
Time is precious.
None of us know how much of it we get in this life.
So when we spend it telling our children WHAT to think, we miss our greatest responsibility and ultimately rob them of an amazing opportunity.
When we teach them HOW to think?
That's where the gift is.
When they know HOW to think on their own, they will be able to solve problems the same way.
Think of it like this…
Teach them HOW to think & they'll know what to do because they'll know WHO they are.
That's a THINK, THANK, THUNK…"Food For Thought Friday" SLAM DUNK!
The site of the Columbia Hotel in downtown Fredonia.
There is a clear difference between how the Columbia Hotel looked over 100 years ago, and how the site looks today.
Do you know why?
Here is a hint: It was tragic.
