4th Annual "Taste of Wellsville" - Saturday, Oct. 10, 2009

Local eateries will once again participate in Alfred State College’s fourth annual “Taste of Wellsville” this year, Saturday, Oct. 10, from 12:30-3:30 p.m. Restaurants and other food purveyors will showcase their tasty signature dishes in “miniature form” at stations around the Applied Technology Campus in Wellsville.

Participating eateries include: Case Catering, Hot Diggity Dogs, Giant Food, L’Italia, Ponderosa, Beef Haus, Tops Markets, Short’s Grocery/Deli, Sadie Ann’s, Truly Scrumptious, Little Gem, and Papa Louie’s –others may be added up until the day of the event. Tickets for the food (50 cents each—food costs may range from one ticket to several although no food item will exceed $3.50) may be purchased on the day of the event.  Ten percent of the proceeds from this event will benefit the SPCA Serving Allegany County.

Back this year is the culinary arts: baking, production and management students’ public bake sale. Proceeds from the bake sale will benefit the Top Hat Club (ASC’s culinary honor society), SkillsUSA, and breast cancer.

In addition to the yummy “eats,” the day will feature interactive curriculum demonstrations by Alfred State students who will introduce visitors to the programs and projects underway on the Applied Technology Campus. Last year’s event included activities such as Excavator Bowling, Egg Scramble, Backhoe Softball, Tire Rolling, and much more! Tours of the campus will be conducted. 

Blood pressure testing will be performed by Alfred State College nursing students throughout the day.

ACCORD Corp. technicians will be on site performing car safety seat checks to make sure the safety seat 1) fits the child properly, 2) does not have a recall, 3) isn’t too old to be used, and 4) is properly installed in the parent’s vehicle. Walk-ins are always welcomed; however, appointments for this testing are appreciated. (Appointments may be made in advance by calling Allison Mosher at (585) 593-0792 ext. 1217.)

Immediately following the event at 3:30 p.m., drawings will be held for various raffle items. Proceeds from the drawings will benefit a scholarship fund for Applied Technology students. Raffle tickets will be available at the event; cost is $1 each.  You need not be present to win.

Alfred State College invites you to attend this local family-friendly activity where everyone can enjoy food, fun, and even a little “green” education.
