Dunkirk High School Student Council officers want to thank the community for its overwhelming and continued support and are proud to again host a food truck block party. Arly and Izzy’s, J&L BBQ, Polish Villa, and Wizz Whip have all been confirmed.

Please help us celebrate the sixth annual “Once A Marauder, Always A Marauder” DHS Homecoming Block Party on Friday, Oct. 7. The event is being sponsored by DHS Student Council.

Food trucks and picnic tables will be set to serve at DHS starting at 4 p.m. in the front parking lot. The Homecoming parade, featuring the high school band, JROTC, class floats, and more will begin at 6:30 p.m. Entrance to the Block Party is free and open to all. Additionally, students who walk with their classes in the parade earn free admission to the game.

Kickoff for the game vs. Falconer/Cassadaga/Maple Grove is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Karl Hoeppner Field.

Speaker announced for Sunday service

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Northern Chautauqua, located at 222 Temple St. in Fredonia, holds its Sunday Service at 11 a.m., both at their physical location and on Zoom. For those wishing to join us virtually, please visit https://tinyurl.com/caluucnc. Click on “Worship Service” on the date you are attending and scroll down for the Zoom link. For those attending the in-person service, please follow the driveway and park in the lower lot behind the building.

On Sunday, the Rev. Sally Hamlin will speak on what it means to have a “calling.” What does it mean? Does it differ from a vocation? How do we discern what it is we are meant to do in our life? All are invited to ponder all of this with Hamlin as you reflect on her sermon, “When I’m Calling You-oo-oo-oo-oh!”

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Northern Chautauqua strives to be a vibrant, welcoming, multigenerational, diverse community enlivened by the power of radical love. We are a congregation that nurtures acceptance, spirituality, and growth while guided by Unitarian Universalist Principles. It provides a place where people engage together through fellowship, celebration, social outreach, environmental action, and transformative justice.
