Fredonia readies for start of series

After over a year of hard work, Season 5 of Deluxe’s Small Business Revolution is being aired beginning Tuesday.

Fredonia is holding a kick-off celebration on that day as well, starting at 5 p.m. at The Vineyards Golf Course on Berry Road in Fredonia.

The rally will start with a video introduction by Amanda Brinkman, co-host of the show, followed by a viewing of episode one of Season 5. It will be shown on a 20-foot screen for all to see.

The event will be outside on the golf course and parking lot.

Per state COVID-19 restrictions, they will have golf carts strategically placed six feet apart to adhere to social distancing.

While walking around, people will be required to wear a mask, but they can take it off once they are seated in a cart or chair. For those that can provide their own chairs, they are encouraged.

“Come help us celebrate the winning businesses and meet many of the business owners and associates,” reads the Facebook event post. “Congratulations to Fresh and Fancy Floral Design Studio, Nyce and Clean Auto Detailing, Om Nohm Bakery & Cafe, Lena’s Pizza, Subs and Wings, Vineyards Golf Course, Literacy Volunteers of Chautauqua County and The Hair Bar!”

Aside from the viewing, there will be many activities going on during the rally, including food and wine from Siri Thai Cuisine, Franklin Honey and Apple, Lena’s Pizza and Subs, TaQo, Super Duper’s Gourmet Hot Dogs, 21 Brix, Three Chord Bourbon, and Paul’s Rocket.

The Vineyards clubhouse will be open for beer purchases as well.

“We’re so excited! We hope to see many of our #MyFredonia friends.”
