Farmers & Artisans Offering Traditional Irish Fare for St. Patrick’s Day

 

One of Western New York’s favorite holidays — St. Patrick’s Day — is right around the corner, and Farmers & Artisans local food market and bakery is ready to help you celebrate!

For starters, Farmers & Artisans is now taking orders for fresh corned beef.

Despite School Closing, Pre-K Program Continues to Thrive at Annunciation

Despite School Closing, Pre-K Program Continues to Thrive at Annunciation

 

When the Diocese of Buffalo announced its decision in January 2014 to close Annunciation School in Elma at the conclusion of the 2013-14 school year but allow pre-kindergarten to continue, few believed the Pre-K program could continue to thrive. After all, most of the families enrolled in the program enjoyed the seamless transition from Pre-K to kindergarten and beyond under one roof.

But with a new name, new instructors and a new outlook, the Pre-K program for 3 and 4/5 year olds continues to thrive and grow. In fact, Pre-K4/5 will expand next year into a five-day program, and before- and after-school hours will also be added, according to Annunciation’s pastor, Father Eugene Ulrich.
