SAVE THE DATE — I know, it’s been a hot few days. But honestly, after the winter we just experienced, I’m not complaining. Hopefully, you’re all finding ways to stay cool.

Speaking of cool, take a look at some of the cool events taking place in the community this month.

The Roycroft Campus will host a Twilight Tour of the tower on the campus starting at 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 18, at 31 S. Grove St., East Aurora. The tour will lead guests up to the top floor of the tower on the campus, along with the triangular Ruskin Room of the inn, the round tower of the chapel, and the square turret of the print shop.

SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS — Several area students have been awarded $700 scholarships by the Eastern Erie Retired Teachers Association.

The group is made up of retired teachers from Alden, East Aurora, Iroquois and Holland school districts.

The recipients of the award include Tyler Phillips of East Aurora High School, Riley Jones of Holland and Dylan Schiffhauer of Iroquois High School. All of the students who received the award were graduating seniors who will use the money toward their future education.

IMPROVEMENT — The Bee, myself included, is always looking for ways in which we can improve your community newspaper. Are there events going on that we’re not covering? Do we give too much attention to certain topics? What articles are you reading — or never bother to look at — each week?

I want your feedback. Send your comments to me via email at KateP@beenews.com.I also encourage you to leave comments on The East Aurora Bee fan page at www.facebook.com/EastAurorabee.
