Host families sought
The Lake Shore School District is seeking host families for 31 students and 2 female teachers (both speak English) from China.
The Delegation will arrive the evening of Oct. 2 and depart Lake Shore in the early afternoon of Oct. 6. The students are 12-13 years old and the District would like to place the students in pairs in host homes throughout the District.
Lake Shore is fortunate once again to be able to offer this wonderful cultural opportunity for our families. If you would like to be a host family or have any questions please contact Chris Walsh at 926-2461 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Landlord group to meet
The Northern Chautau-qua Landlord Association is sponsoring a program focusing on the rising national infestation of bedbugs.
Kenneth Drummond from Comfort Pest Control will be the speaker. Experts report a 500 percent increase in bedbug infestation which has not only shut down hotels, movie theaters and clothing stores but cost thousands of dollars to eliminate from apartments and homes. These tiny nocturnal insects rely on the blood of humans and animals to survive and are very hard to eradicate.
Join the discussion on Sept. 20 at 7 p.m. at the Dunkirk Senior Citizen Center, 45 Franklin Ave., Dunkirk.
