Despite the call for rain, it was a
wonderful weekend. A little windy, but we didn't get
wet and we didn't freeze...so, all was good.
Congratulations to Renee "Whoopie" Edgell and Brock
Bricker - the 2010 Homecoming Queen and King.
Homecoming events were sponsored by the Student Council.
Advisor for the group is Erin Moran. From what I heard,
and what I could see - every thing went pretty
Although Homecoming is sponsored by the Student Council,
another group puts in more than a few hours in
preparation for the annual event. The PAHS Cheerleaders
made more posters and banners than I could count. They
put together the pep assembly as well as the bonfire.
They participate in the parade and cheer at the game.
They also host a spaghetti dinner for the players,
coaches and managers. It's a busy week for the girls -
and probably almost all of them are also involved in
I had to make a quick trip to Olean Saturday morning so
I parked my car in the football field parking lot so I
would be sure to have a spot if I didn't get back as
quickly as planned. It was early when I made my way to
Mill Street. The cheerleaders had already been around
town with signs and were at the field...decorating.
Their efforts did not go unnoticed. I heard many
comments and compliments during the afternoon.
Before I forget, I want to correct something from last
week's column...or I guess add to would be the better
way to put it. I had written, "Although Dick's position
as Borough Manager is not a volunteer position, I've
been told on more than one occasion that the community
has no idea what he does for this community and that his
is not a "9 to 5" job." The second part of that
sentence was somehow omitted in print. Dick was honored
as an Unsung Hero for how well he does his job, for
going above and beyond and for his volunteer work with
groups such as the Rotary Club. I'm not sure what
people were thinking after reading that column, but
hopefully this will clear things up.
