Tonawanda News — The woman from St. Peter’s who first brought the issue to the paper, said she’s not sure the church would want to go through the work of painting a new horse, they would just like to find the original one. Can anyone out there help?

A couple of weeks ago, our two grandsons were to start ski lessons with the school’s ski club. The older boy really didn’t want to go, even going so far as to say he hoped he’d be sick that Saturday morning so as not to have to go.

The membership tea hosted by the DeGraff Hospital Auxiliary on Thursday was a fun event. Tea served from a silver tea set and poured by an auxiliary member, was something one doesn’t see very often. The table was laden with tea sandwiches, cookies and other delicious goodies. Hank Cole, senior director of operations at the hospital, or “president” as he’s referred to here, walked around greeting everyone and taking a few moments to meet and greet auxiliary members. The hospital is fortunate to have such an energetic and enthusiastic leader.
