St. Joseph Catholic School will be holding a food drive to support the Genesee County Food Bank this Saturday, December 1st, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the school, located at 2 Summit Street in Batavia.

Donations of non-perishable boxed, bagged or canned goods will accepted and those that donate will be able to pull up and drop off their donation. Volunteers will be on hand to help unload donations.

St Joseph’s is participating in a contest sponsored by Channel 2’s (WGRZ) meteorologist Andy Parker. The school is hoping to collect enough donations to win a visit from Andy and the weather machine. The school is currently in 8th place and has collected 235 pounds of food, enough for 196 meals. Since the contest is judged by weight, organizers encourage donations such as bags of rice and large cans of fruit and vegetables.

In recognition of Power Ball reaching a $500 million prize pool, the New York State Lottery has provided Southside Deli with two tickets to this Sunday's Buffalo Bill's game at Ralph Wilson Stadium as a prize for a raffle drawing.

To enter the raffle, you most drop off a losing scratcher at the deli. Write your name and phone number on the back of the ticket. The winner will be selected Friday night in a drawing from all of those losing tickets. (If you don't have a losing ticket, go to Southside, buy some scratchers and leave a loser behind with your name and number on it for the drawing.)

Southside Deli is located at the corner of Ellicott and Liberty streets, Batavia.

The winner of the drawing gets both tickets. There is only one prize.

Introducing the Ash Dragon…finally, a safe, efficient and dustless method of removing ash and coals, whether hot or cold, from your fireplace or wood stove. Enjoy a dust free burning season. Ready for immediate shipment, order today and breath easier the next time you clean out your stove.
  • Made entirely right here in Batavia, NY!!
  • No other ash scoop can compare to the Ash Dragon!
  • Precise, sturdy and attractive design.
  • Simple, clean and efficient.
  • One-hand operation.
The low-profile design of the Ash Dragon allows you to easily reach inside your wood stove or fireplace. It measures 12"L x 7"W x 4"H and with its mouth open, it measures less than 6" high, and has an attractive and durable powder coat finish. I designed this with my wood stove insert in mind, but it also works well for open fireplaces, wood stoves with ash pans and the smaller side loading wood stoves. If you currently clean your fireplace or stove with a shovel and ash pail, and are looking for a better way, this is it!
 
** Batavian Special…Free Shipping and Delivery!**
 
Order from www.ashdragon.com and mention The Batavian and I will refund the shipping. I will deliver free within Genesee County or I will ship free within the U.S. if you are purchasing as a gift.
Visit us online today, www.ashdragon.com for more pictures and information.

Billie and I always appreciate running into people around town who shower The Batavian with praise. We always love to know that people appreciate our work.

We've always asked our fans and supporters to help The Batavian thrive by supporting our advertisers, which you all have been great about doing.

Now, to help us grow, we're asking you to support The Batavian through direct financial contributions by joining The Batavian Club.

Today, 19 people signed up, which we find is a pretty great start to getting this new idea going.
