SAVE THE DATE — With the start of March comes the path toward spring and Easter observances.

During the next month, a number of events to celebrate the coming season are planned in West Seneca.

Saturday, March 10 Fourteen Holy Helpers Church will hold a Lenten retreat from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., in the church’s Monsignor Ebner Hall, 1345 Indian Church Road. Guest speakers, music and group activities will be held. Lunch will be provided at no cost. Call the rectory at 674-2374 to register.

Also on Saturday, East Seneca Fire Co. will hold a meat raffle at the fire hall, 100 Lein Road. Doors open at 6 p.m., with the raffle starting at 7 p.m. Admission is $5 and includes sandwiches and refreshments.

Friday, March 16 New Hope United Methodist Church will hold a free community dinner from 4 to 7 p.m. at the church, 2846 Seneca St. The meal is an outreach of the ministry but freewill offerings may be made if desired.

Thursday, March 22 “Wine, Women and Art” with Andrea Oswald returns from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, March 22, at Enjoy The Journey Art Gallery, 1168 Orchard Park Road.

SPRING FORWARD — The Bee reminds readers to turn their clocks ahead one hour before retiring on Saturday night. Daylight saving time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday, March 11. The time change is also a good opportunity to replace batteries in smoke detectors.

TEACHER NOMINATION — M&T Bank and the Buffalo Bills have teamed up to honor local educators for extraordinary service to their schools and communities with the annual Touchdown for Teachers program.

They are encouraging each of the schools throughout the 15-county region that is eligible for the competition to nominate a talented teacher.

Five finalists will be chosen based on involvement in the school and community, degree of positive impact and demonstrated commitment to education. One of the five finalists will be named the grand prize winner, and will receive $2,000 in grant funds, payable to the person’s school or district, plus an in-class visit from a Buffalo Bills player or alumnus.

Educators must be nominated by the public no later than Friday, March 30, through the application form at buffalobills.com/teachers.
