"Pancakes for Paws" flapjack fundraiser to benefit the Genesee County Sheriff's Office K9 Fund will be held from 8 to 10 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 9, at Applebee's Restaurant in Batavia.

This event is sponsored by the Elementary School Council of Elba Central School.

Tickets are $6. For this special fundraiser, tickets WILL BE available at the door. However, Applebee's would like to anticipate the number of people who will attend, so please contact either of the following two people with a head count for your party:

  • 1) Elba schoolteacher Mrs. Pietrzykowski at 757-9967, ext. 1480, or email her at:   [email protected]

Deputy Christopher Erion -- a 1993 graduate of Elba Central School -- recently lost his K9 service dog Destro to cancer.

The initial cost to get another police dog is estimated to be nearly $15,000.

On Wednesday, students at Pavilion Central School presented a check for $721 -- plus gave two one-dollar bills in cash -- for the K9 Fund to help the Genesee County Sheriff's Office buy a crime-fighting service dog. A total of $723!

The students held a fundraiser on Nov. 5, which was designated "Hat Day." Students donated a dollar to participate in Hat Day and and staff made a donation so they could "dress down" in casual clothes that day.

Pictured at the check ceremony are: Back row, from left -- Chief Sheriff's Deputy Jerome Brewster, Kris Hoffmeister, Ashley McMaster, Sheila Eigenbrod, Charles Martell, Ken Ellison and Jon Wilson. Front row, from left -- K9 Handler / Deputy Christopher Erion, students Molly McMaster and Kennedy Quigley, and School Resource Officer / Deputy Cory Mower.
