Where we live: West Seneca

West Seneca

The Town of West Seneca and Save the Michaels of the World are coming together with local leaders and experts in the field of addiction to host Addiction in Our Zip Code: a free, educational presentation and forum focused on the Western New York prescription opioid and heroin epidemic.

The forum will take place at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in the West Seneca Senior Center, 4620 Seneca Street. Doors open at 6 p.m.

Fifteen students raised more than $1,000 apiece for West Seneca Central’s West Side Bald for Bucks, and five schools raised a total of $47,221 in the event earlier this month.

There were 88 participants who shaved their heads or donated eight or more inches of hair, and 40 people received a colored hair extension. Students from five schools on the west side of the district united for the effort.

This week:

• The School Board meets at 5:45 p.m. Tuesday in the Potters Road building, 675 Potters Road.
