Every Thursday evening until September 20th, Care-A-Van Ministries is hosting a free cookout picnic for the community at Austin Park.  This past Thursday 305 folks were served dinner. Local churches and agencies are encouraged to participate. One of the churches to participate this past week was the Batavia First United Methodist church and they hosted a mini game carnival for the children which included the children receiving tickets which they could turn in for prizes.  Salvation Army gave away free shoes to the families. Local pastors are participating with giiving short messages as well as the Care-A-Van Band who provides delightful music for the crowd. Be sure to stop by from 5:00-7:00 PM any Thursday.

Over 100 residents of the 400 Towers and their families and friends enjoyed a picnic on June 20 in spite of the rain.  Lou Signore's 10-piece band played everyone's favorite music from the 30's, 40's and 50's under a tent on the front lawn, and a sumptuous picnic feast was enjoyed thanks to the efforts of the 400 Towers Resident Council and all the residents who pitched in.

Talk about co-operation from the weatherman!  The rain stopped when the band started, and held off until they finished.

This was just one of many varied events planned throughout the year by our Resident Council, which always does a terrific job! 

Our special thanks - this event was made possible by a grant from the Genesee Senior Foundation, Inc., funded by the Rochester Area Community Foundation's Muriel H. Marshall Fund for the Aging.
