Compeer and Mental Health Association Host 28th Annual Road 2 Recovery

Continuing the tradition of the only race and walk in Western New York dedicated to mental health awareness, Compeer of Greater Buffalo joins forces with the Mental Health Association of Erie County to host the Road 2 Recovery 5K Mental Health Run and Wellness Walk – A Superhero Run! at St. George’s Church and Delaware Park on Friday, June 28, 2013 at 6:30 p.m.

 

Through a partnership with the CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) program at the Mental Health Association of Erie County and The Superhero Foundation, this year’s event will be a “Superhero Race.” Organizers encourage all participants to dress up in their favorite Superhero costumes to help raise awareness for the program, which helps abused children have their voice in court and in the community. The Superhero Run calls attention to the idea that while every child needs a hero, abused children need Superheroes.

Jacobs Urges Area Golf Courses to Offer Veteran Discounts

Asks them to consider joining Clerk’s “Thank-A-Vet” Discount Card Program

Erie County, NY – In an effort to make a round of golf a bit more affordable for Erie County’s Veterans, Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs sent a letter to all the area golf courses, including the two owned and operated by Erie County, asking that they consider participating in the Clerks’ “Thank-A-Vet” Discount Card Program by offering a discount to County veterans.

“Many of the over 60,000 veterans in Erie County are avid golfers,” said Clerk Jacobs. “With the tough financial times and many vets on fixed incomes, even a small discount for veterans could go a long way to allow our vets to keep swinging their clubs.”

Erie County, NY- Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs announced that the New York State Boater’s Guide is now available through his office. The guidebook is made possible by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation. The guide provides a summary of the more important laws, registration and training requirements, as well as suggested safety information governing recreational boating within New York State.

“Just like there are ‘rules of the road’ for vehicles, there are ‘rules of the waterway’ that govern the safe maneuvering of watercrafts”, said County Clerk Jacobs. “I encourage all recreational boaters and jet skiers to know the risks, learn the rules and be prepared before taking the helm this boating season.”
