Medina Journal-Register — MTA to honor public safety workers

For the third consecutive year, the Medina Teacher’s Association will honor the staffs of the Medina area Fire, Police, and 911 Dispatchers, with a luncheon to be served at 1 p.m. on Nov. 3 at the Shelby Fire Hall.

Originally started in Sept., 2011, the 10-year anniversary of the attacks of 9/11, the MTA is continuing to “give back” to those individuals and staff that serve the Medina community.

Medina students will design table placemats and banners to show their appreciation of the work these groups do.

All staff members of the above groups along with spouses/significant others are invited.

Further information can be obtained by contacting the chief or president of each department, or by contacting Thomas Robinson, School Counselor at Medina High School.

Halloween carnival planned at church

Hartland Bible Church will host a Candy Costume Carnival from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Sunday at the church, 8110 West Ave. Gasport. 

The event, for children ages pre-K to sixth grade, will feature candy, games and refreshments. Children should wear costumes to the free event.

There will be fun for the whole family. All are welcome.

Historical talk to focus on little know stories

Orleans County Historian Bill Lattin is presenting “Stories You Won’t Hear In Chuch” at 7 p.m. on Nov. 3 at Pullman Memorial Universalist Church in Albion.

The stories, which promise to “spare no denominations,” are a collection of local human interest pieces. Lattin, who is known for his colorful anecdotes, some of them on the risqué side, is offering these historical recollections to fund the restoration of one of Albion’s most notable church structures, which is included on the National Register of Historic Places. The ultimate goal of restoration is the replacement of the red Spanish tile roof which was removed in 1937.

The church is asking for a donation of at least $20 per person for the one hour program to be followed by a reception.
