Volunteers, public, classic car owners invited to village barbecue
The Village of Williamsville will thank its volunteers with a "Blues, Cruise and BBQ" picnic from 4 to 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 30 in front of the mill at 56 E. Spring Street between Mill and Cayuga roads. The public is invited to attend as well.
Previously, the Village volunteer picnic was held at Island Park. This year, Mayor Mary Lowther thought that a change of scenery could benefit the village.
"It's another way to highlight our mill and help in our efforts to make it a destination point in the village," she said.
Classic car owners are also invited to display their cars in front of the mill, with no preregistration or fee.
"Charlie Ciotta ( the Barber ) asked about having a 'cruise event' at the mill this summer, so I put them together," Lowther said.
To display a car, interested parties should arrive at the mill by 3:30 p.m.
A barbecue dinner, chicken or ribs, will be catered at a cost of $10 per person for anyone other than village volunteers.
Dinner will be available starting at 5 p.m.
Music by Harvey and the Hurricanes, led by village resident Harvey Murello, will begin at 4 p.m. and there will be "Dancing in the Street."
All other activities at the event are free.
"I liked the idea of some live music, barbeque and old classic cars," Lowther concluded. "I think it will add a little punch to our volunteer celebration."
In the event of rain, the barbecue will be held at the Island Park Pavilion across the street from the mill.
