WARSAW BUSINESS CLOSES — After 61 years of serving the community, Wyoming Rexall Drug shut its doors for good on Wednesday. Owned by Bill Follendorf, who is currently 91 and will be 92 in October, Gage Moran, his daughter, said it was time to close. “It’s kind of too much for him,” she said. “He’s kind of old-school ... and all he knows how to do is to work.” Follendorf has been working since he was 13, when he got a job at Fisher Pharmacy in North Tonawanda, delivering prescriptions using the company’s pickup truck. He later graduated from the University of Buffalo in 1952 with a bachelor of science in pharmacy. He joined Peterson Drug in 1958, which would become Wyoming Rexall Drug in 1961.
TWO HIGH SCHOOLERS EARN GCC DEGREES — Two Orleans County high schoolers will have a rare distinction when they graduate. Seniors Emily Harling of Albion and Rebecca Clemens of Lyndonville have each earned associate’s degrees from Genesee Community College, a month before graduating from high school. Harling will go on to earn a law degree. Clemens plans to shadow a local equine trainer and follow her passion of horses. She hopes it will direct her to a career path and possibly to college for further equine training.
WILD WEATHER WNY STYLE — Thursday's storm is one for the books, especially for Geneseo, a 25-minute hop from Silver Lake. While Silver Lake had only one large tree limb down, Geneseo had entire trees uprooted and power lines down in several places. The next news is for a 40+ temperature difference in tonight's (Saturday) low temperature of 46 degrees and next week's mid-week high of 88 degrees with rain. Today's temperature at 2:34 pm is only 60 degrees which is quite a contrast with some of our already high heat and humidity days this past week.
THE SOUTH LAKE CAM, sponsored by the Silver Lake Marine, has been missing in action for several weeks and may just be temporarily out of service. We look forward to its return and hope it will be soon.
THE BUTTER & MEAT COMPANY at the corner of Main Street and Covington Street in Perry is a delightful place to visit and enjoy some high end delicacies but also some reasonably priced lunch plates and best of all—for the summer—Soft Serve Ice Cream in cone or dish. Vanilla, Chocolate, or Twist (of both). And there's places inside and out to sit and enjoy your pick. It's one of several new "downtown" shops which have enlivened Main Street these past many months and we hope the trend continues. Help us enjoy and support these local businesses!
