Employee now the owner of Bob Adams Automotive in Le Roy

post by Howard B. Owens in business, Le Roy

Jamie Merica prides himself on being a good mechanic, and Bob Adams Automotive in Le Roy has a decades-long reputation for good service, so when Bob Adams decided to sell his business and retire, Merica said taking over the business seemed like the right opportunity.

After five years as an employee of Adams, Merica now owns the shop.

"As a lifelong resident of Le Roy, I know a lot of people," Merica said. "That will help. We offer honest repairs at a fair price and we try to take care of everybody we can."

Moose Lodge in Le Roy celebrating 100th Anniversary

post by Howard B. Owens in Le Roy, LeRoy Moose Lodge #1132

The Moose Lodge in Le Roy is 100 years old today.

Members have been celebrating since Saturday with various events, including a dance with the band Monster Johnson (pictured above). 

Today, the lodge is holding an open house all day, with food. At 6 p.m., various dignitaries will be on hand to honor the Moose on the 100th Anniversary.

There is a lodge enrollment ceremony at 8 p.m.

The lodge has 330 male members and 203 female members. It is a completely nonprofit organization and all proceeds from membership and fundraisers are returned to the community for good causes.

Up until this year, only a man could sponsor a new male member, and only women could sponsor women. That's no longer true, and getting new members is always a priority for the Moose, Richard Tredinnick said.

"We live and die with our membership," Tredinnick said. "It's more than just dues. It's also more people who can participate in our events, and by doing that, we have more money we can give back to our local community."

The Moose sponsor numerous community events, including breakfast with Santa, an Easter Egg hunt, breakfasts for Mother's Day and Father's Day, and dinners honoring emergency service responders and one honoring veterans.

Next week's events:

  • Thursday, 5 to 8 p.m., meatloaf dinner
  • Friday, 5 to 8 p.m., followed by DJ Jamin Jim at 9 p.m.
  • Saturday, 5 to 8 p.m., dinner, followed by the Rebel Posse Band

Le Roy PD warns about theft from purses in supermarkets

post by Howard B. Owens in crime, Le Roy

Press release:

The Le Roy Police Department is advising consumers to use caution as a result of larcenies which have been occurring in local supermarkets relating to the theft of wallets from purses.

In the past week, the Le Roy Police have received two complaints where wallets have been stolen out of purses left in shopping carts. It is believed that the victim was unknowingly followed around the store by unknown persons while their purses were located in the shopping cart. The suspect(s) then waited until the victim was distracted (or caused the distraction) and stole the wallet from the purse. This is a relatively common crime technique and has occurred in the past in Le Roy and other towns.
