Fredonia Recreation Department holiday news
Letters To Santa: We will once again be teaming up with the Fredonia Post Office and Santa Claus to accept letters for Christmas.
Letters can be deposited in the Fredonia Post Office lobby in a special receptacle marked "Letters to Santa" during normal business hours.
To assure delivery, letters should be received by Dec. 14. Santa letters require no postage, but a clear return address is very important.

Senator Young comments on
coalition that will control Senate
Senator Catharine Young (R.C.I.-Olean) issued a statement Tuesday on the bipartisan coalition that will control the New York State Senate.
"This coalition builds on a bipartisan partnership that was formed two years ago. Our Senate Republican Conference has worked well with Governor Cuomo and the members of the Independent Democratic Conference (IDC) to pass on-time budgets and move the state in the right direction.
"We share a number of the same priorities, including economic revitalization and job growth. This agreement maintains regional balance and ensures that upstate is treated fairly and equitably, instead of being controlled by New York City-dominated political bosses.
"I will keep working hard to protect the priorities of the people in my district by continuing to fight for more job creation and lower taxes."
