We had a great time on Saturday at our 4th Annual Kickball Tournament in La Salle Park! Buffalo CarShare, The Good Neighborhood, Journey's End Refugee Services, Inc., Learning Disabilities Association of WNY, and the Lexington Co-Operative Market all joined us to compete for the title of 2013 Champion, eat hot dogs and veggie dogs, and enjoy Flying Bison beer. Thanks to your support, we raised just under $1,500 to put directly into our community in the form of volunteer activities, neighborhood events, and neighborhood beautification.

In the end, The Good Neighborhood took home the 1st Place Trophy,
Learning Disabilities Association took home the 2nd Place Trophy AND the Best Team Uniform Award, and Buffalo CarShare took home the Third Place Trophy. A huge thanks to all five teams for participating!

This event would not have been possible without our volunteers and sponsors. Thanks to our referees Dave Clayton and Mike Clayton, our keg-tender Landrum Beard, our grill masters Isabel Hartenberg and Tim Wilkinson, and our set-up crew from Wells Fargo- Lisa Akers, Donna Szustak,and Anthony Rijos. Thanks to the Lexington Co-Operative Market, Wegmans, Pepsi-Cola, and Flying Bison Brewing Co. for their support. Last but not least, thanks to First Niagara and Wells Fargo for their sponsorships.

Be sure to check out the team photos on our Facebook! We look forward to seeing you all at our big 5th Annual Tournament next year!

Are you in need of a copy of your deed? If you're a property owner, you can obtain your deed for a low cost of $5-$10 by simply visiting the Erie County Clerk's Office at 92 Franklin St. or online.

Property owners are being warned about high-priced deed offers. Erie County has warned homeowners of solicitations in the form of official looking letters offering a copy(s) of your deed for $70-$90. For more information on this scam, read the Buffalo News' article.
