Vietnam Veterans Ready to Ride

Vietnam Veterans will get their motors running and head out on the highway this weekend for the eleventh annual Ride of Pride. It begins Saturday morning in Smethport.
The ride is in memory of the Ride of Pride that accompanied the Vietnam Moving Wall to Hamlin Lake Park in 2006. A brief ceremony will be held at the McKean County Vietnam Veterans Memorial in the park.
Allegany’s floating dock is in place and ready for Memorial Day weekend
It’s the third season that the dock’s been installed for area residents and businesses. IT cost $20,000 and was paid for with a grant from the Cattaraugus County Legislature.
Future plans may include a campground near the dock. Mayor Greg Pearl said he believes the floating dock has already helped the community financially. Pearl noted Allegany “is one of the few” municipalities in Cattaraugus County that has seen an increase in sales tax revenue since its installation.
