WEST SENECA TO MARK TOWN 'ARCHIVES WEEK'

West Seneca, once home to a semi-permanent Indian settlement and the site of the Amana utopian collective, has a lot of history to celebrate.

And, says Town Clerk Patricia A. Wisniewski, there's no better time than "Archives Week," an event she marks seriously.

First there'll be a dinner Wednesday in the historic Heritage Inn where this year's theme -- the history of the town police -- will be expounded along with the benefits of preserving archives for future historians.

On Oct. 10, the town's records center in the lower level of the Senior Center at 4620 Seneca St. will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for public tours and displays that speak to police history as well as selected "town minute books" and the like.

At both events the new town calendar will be given out, featuring historic photos.

"We started gleaning the old files and asking around and had so many neat photos turn up that I thought about making it a two-year calendar," Ms. Wisniewski said. "As it is I've got a good start on any future
projects we might do."

For tickets to the dinner, contact the town clerk or police chief's office.
