Fredonia police offer a hand


On Feb. 19, I had a car accident. The Fredonia Police Department stopped me. I told them my story and mentioned I had lost my billfold so I couldn’t give them my license. I told them if it was still there, it would be at the Walmart in Fredonia.

As time went on, my husband and I were taking care of insurance things. When to my surprise, a Fredonia police officer brought my billfold to me. Folks, I just want you to know I did not ask the police to get my billfold, but they did.

God bless you guys and a big thank you.

It was our most successful dinner ever in terms of attendance and advertising by residents and businesses from all regions of Chautauqua County.

We were pleased to induct 11 new members to our Hall of Honor, recognize 42 outstanding high school, collegiate and community athletes for extraordinary accomplishments, and present CSHOF Legacy Society Awards to six most-deserving individuals.

The Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame is an all-volunteer organization,dedicated to only one mission: To Honor and Preserve the Sports History of Chautauqua County.

The record-breaking level of support we received for our 2017 Induction Banquet is sincerely appreciated.
