Nancy, I just wanted to mention that it would benefit readers if you included the area code (I assume 585) on telephone numbers, since some may land in the 716 area. Also, what is a Chinese auction? Many thanks. Philip

Thanks for the comment. A chinese auction is where we have many (and I mean many, thanks to the generosity of people in our area) items to give away. A person can buy tickets - they are 25 tickets for $5.00 and you can decide which items you want to try to win and put them in the coresponding bag. If your kids, really want the basket filled with candy and chocolates, then you can put all your tickets in that bag. At the end of the evening, we will stop selling tickets and pull one lucky winner from each bag. If you dont want to wait around for the chinese auction names to be drawn, go home and we will call you if your name is selected.
