Observer to Publish Annual Laurel Run Edition July 9
Mark your calendars and plan to have some dollar bills with you Wednesday, July 9.
That’s the day the Observer’s annual Laurel Run newspaper sale will take place. Each year, Observer Publisher John D’Agostino and his staff stay up late one night to print a special Laurel Run edition of the paper. Volunteers then set out around daybreak to sell the papers at various locations in the Northern Chautauqua County area, including the Tim Hortons restaurants in Dunkirk, Fredonia, Gowanda, and Irving.
More than 2,000 papers typically are sold. The price is $1, but many people generously give more than that. Proceeds from the sales benefit Laurel Run. This is the eighth year for the newspaper sales; in the previous seven years combined, the sales have netted more than $11,000.
Papers will be sold between 6:00 and 10:00 a.m. Area residents are invited to help sell papers, and local businesses are encouraged to support Laurel Run by ordering some copies of the newspaper to have on hand for their employees and customers. For more information, phone Kayla Bohall at 661-1465.
