Fifth Annual "Taste of Wellsville", Sunday, Oct. 17

Fifth Annual "Taste of Wellsville", Sunday, Oct. 17

Local eateries will once again participate in Alfred State College’s fifth annual Wellsville Ridgewalk and Run.

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, East Pearl Express, Giant Food, L’Italia, Ponderosa, Beef Haus, Tops Markets, Short’s Grocery/Deli, 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 food ticket sales go to a local charity or organization. This year’s designated organization is the Wellsville Volunteer Ambulance Corp.

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, Robotic Control, Pumpkin Shooter, and much more! Tours of the campus also will be conducted.

Blood pressure testing will be performed by Alfred State 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 and fun and gather information about the college through user-friendly demonstrations!
