During this time, Dalia’s will also host its first annual “Spring Into Summer Clearance Sale” with 30 to 85 percent off select bridal wear, and select bridal gowns starting at just $99.

“A portion of all sales during the month of June will also be donated to the Food Bank of WNY,” said the store’s owner, Dalia Nowak. “The Food Bank plays a vital role in our community, and we consider it an honor to help them continue their service and outreach.”

Land Conservancy Awarded $300,000; More Than Halfway to Goal of Protecting Jackson Falls

Land Conservancy Awarded $300,000; More Than Halfway to Goal of Protecting Jackson Falls

The Western New York Land Conservancy has just received a $300,000 grant from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to protect a 57-acre property in the Town of Aurora. The land, known as Jackson Falls, has two gorgeous waterfalls and incredible Roycroft history. Once protected, it will become a publicly accessible nature preserve. 

The Land Conservancy and the Friends of Jackson Falls, a 30-person group of community members committed to protecting Jackson Falls, have until Oct. 31, 2016 to raise $600,000 and purchase the property, open its trails and ensure its long-term care. If not protected, the land could be cleared and subdivided, cutting the community off from the waterfalls.

Increase Your Vehicle’s Visibility with a Free Sample From INVIEW VEHICLE TRIM®

INVIEW VEHICLE TRIM®, an innovative product that allows your vehicle to be easily seen at night by oncoming traffic from more than 1,000 feet away, is offering several thousand free samples to the driving public.

Made of the same reflective material as a stop sign, INVIEW VEHICLE TRIM® cannot be completely obstructed simply by standing in front of it, unlike a single reflector or light, and never takes away from the appearance of the vehicle.
