SAVE THE DATE — Spring is on the way in Orchard Park and there are several events that residents should look forward to attending. One of the major events taking place is the third annual Health, Fitness and Business Expo.

The expo, which is sponsored by the Orchard Park Chamber of Commerce, will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, March 24, at the Orchard Park Country Club, 4777 S. Buffalo St.

The expo will feature exhibitors and sponsors demonstrating and selling the latest products and services.

The chamber will soon be revealing all of the organizations that will be taking part in the expo.

Another event to keep your eye on this month is for those looking to have a thoughtful political discourse.

Left, Right, Center, a new political discussion group, will hold its first meeting from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, March 22, at Orchard Park Presbyterian Church, 4369 S. Buffalo Road.

In a statement, the group said its purpose is to provide a non-threatening atmosphere for discussion.

Attendees can sign up using www.meetup.com or by email and include three to five topics for discussion.

For more information, email danscotthay@gmail.com or joseph.wales@verizon.net.

Take in the meeting and see what different political viewpoints residents in Orchard Park have to offer.

HELP POST PROM — The Orchard Park High School Parent Teacher Organization will hold a fish fry dinner to benefit the post-prom party. The dinner is scheduled for 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, March 16, in the high school cafeteria, 4040 Baker Road. Carryout or eat-in options are available. Dinners sold after March 11 will be $13.

The dinners include potato salad, coleslaw, rye bread, butter, lemon and tartar sauce. Drinks, chips and desserts will be available.

For more information on the dinners, email OPFishFry@gmail.com.

The post-prom party will run from midnight to 3 a.m. Saturday, June 2, at the high school. For more information on the event, including ways to donate or volunteer, contact OPHS.PostProm2018@gmail.com.

SPRING FORWARD — The Bee reminds readers to turn their clocks ahead one hour before retiring on Saturday night. Daylight saving time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday, March 11. The time change is also a good opportunity to replace batteries in smoke detectors.

SUBMIT YOUR PHOTOS — Send-in photos for both news and sports related events are cornerstones of a community newspaper. They allow readers to see more diverse aspects of community life.

Photos should be of high quality and not contain more than six people. Names of those pictured and a description of what is taking place in the photo is also necessary.

If you have a photo that you would like to submit for consideration, email it to cgraham@beenews.com.
