Frost Ridge, complying with court order, announces change of venue for June 7 show

post by Howard B. Owens in business, entertainment, Frost Ridge Campground, Le Roy, music

Press release:

Jam At The Ridge Presents: Josh Thompson In Concert - Performance Location Change

As you may know, a preliminary injunction has been issued against amplified outdoor concerts at Frost Ridge at this time. To fully comply with the court order and meet our commitment to our guests, the Josh Thompson Concert scheduled for June 7th, 2014 at 5 p.m. (gates open at 4 p.m.) is being moved to:

    J W Jones Hall

    366 Leicester Road
    Caledonia, NY 14423

    Maps:  Google   Bing

The firefighters of Caledonia have been very gracious to provide this space and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts. This location is only 14 minutes from camp and is easy to find. If you have any trouble, please come to camp and get a map.

Ticket-holders, please go directly to the venue at the address above.

Campers, please register at the campground and take the FREE shuttle to the venue.

Thank you to everyone who has helped us keep the music alive at The Ridge.

ADDITIONALLY: The attorneys involved in the two lawsuits over Frost Ridge met in conference Friday in the chambers of Judge Robert C. Noonan. The meeting was primarily to go over the calendar of motions and appearances in the case, but attorney Karl Essler was introduced as legal counsel for the Zoning Board of Appeals. Somehow, the ZBA, which has consistently found that Frost Ridge is a legal nonconforming use within the Town of Le Roy's zoning laws, was not notified it was a party to one of the lawsuits. The ZBA was not represented at a hearing that proceeded Noonan's ruling on the current injunction against amplified music and alcohol service at Frost Ridge. David Roach, attorney for Frost Ridge, said Essler will be permitted to file a written argument in the case without opposition from the plantiff's counsel. It's unclear how the additional information might or might not lead to a modification of Noonan's ruling. No date was announced for the next court proceeding.

post by Billie Owens in announcements, Le Roy

It is not uncommon for caregivers to feel frustrated by their difficulty communicating with a loved one who has Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. The Alzheimer’s Association WNY Chapter is offering a class in Le Roy to discuss techniques and tips for “Improving Communication in Dementia Care."

Le Roy Village Green at 10 Munson St. is hosting the June 10 presentation from 1 to 2 p.m. The class is ideal for family caregivers who are trying to negotiate their caregiving journey as the needs of their loved ones change, and the disease progresses.

They will leave the class with an understanding of both verbal and non-verbal communication skills, as well as concrete tools to help them engage with their loved one. The class is open to the public, but registration is requested by calling the Chapter Office at 1.800.272.3900.

The Alzheimer’s Association also offers numerous other programs to help both family and professional caregivers, and those with dementia. Classes are offered at various sites and times across Western New York, and include the basics about the disease, resources available in the community, and efforts on the research front aimed at ending the disease. Details are available by calling the Chapter at 1.800.272.3900 or by visiting www.alz.com/WNY.
