TALES FROM TASTE — A big thank you to everyone who stopped by The East Aurora Bee booth during the Taste of East Aurora on Saturday. It was great getting to see everyone and equally as fun to try all the local foods. (Confession: I’ve never had Tony Rome’s ribs until Saturday. I don’t know what I’ve been doing with my life, but I’ve been doing it wrong).

My boyfriend, Andy, and I were quite a sight out there — me, double fisting quinoa and tiramisu while he hauled around a giant bag of kettle corn, leaving a trail right back to The Bee booth.

I also got schooled on the proper disposal of plastic cups, thanks to a friendly Aurorans for Climate and Energy Sense volunteer, who literally picked my plastic cup out of the garbage and placed it in the recycling tote. If that’s not dedication, I don’t know what is.

KNOX WALK — Members of the Buffalo Audubon Society will lead guests on a walk while discussing the history of Knox Farm. The two-hour tour begins at 9 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 15, at Knox Farm State Park, 437 Buffalo Road, East Aurora. Those attending are asked to meet at the main parking lot by the red barns.

The tour will cover the history of the property from the late 1800s to the present day. Guests will be walking behind the main house, as well as the many barns and trails that make up the park.

For more information, call Beaver Meadow Audubon Center at 585-457-3228 or email info@buf faloaudubon.org.

RETIREMENT — On Friday, Joan Greenwood, who is the exemption clerk for the Assessor’s Office, officially retired. In her resignation letter, she said it was a pleasure and an honor to work with the Town of Aurora and that she’s looking forward to retirement. Supervisor Jim Bach said Greenwood has been a good fixture for the town and wished her well.

Congratulations and best of luck to Joan.

EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION — This year, the East Aurora Educational Foundation is celebrating 30 years of giving back to the students in the East Aurora school district. That’s 30 years of making sure teachers have access to funds that will help them plan engaging and informative lessons. Thirty years of dedication, 30 years of fundraising and 30 years of students who have benefited from this foundation.

This year, Peg Fletcher is being honored during the annual Celebration Event, to be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 4, at Crag Burn Golf Club, 1231 N. Davis Road, East Aurora. Peg has served on the EAEF board for the past 12 years, as well as working with a number of other groups in the community. She has been a vital member of the group, and has worked hard to make sure the foundation runs smoothly.

Besides honoring Peg, the foundation is also raising money for the STEAM lab in each of the three schools. The labs will help students learn more about science, technology, engineering, arts and math, and will provide another layer to the student’s educational foundation.

Tickets for the event start at $50 and include beer, wine and appetizers. To purchase tickets or learn more about the event, visit www.eas tauroraeducationalfoundation.org.
