Educators go bald for West Webster Fire Department

Faculty members from the Webster school district raised funds for the West Webster Firefighters Saturday night with a basketball game and a few haircuts.

Faculty from Webster Thomas and Webster Schroeder high schools faced off in a benefit basketball match.

During halftime each school's assistant principal and Webster Thomas' librarian each shaved their heads. They say it shows an important message for students.

“It's just really humbling how much everybody cares. It's really amazing. We talk to kids all the time about (how) it's not what's on the outside that's important, it's what you're feeling on the inside, and you've got to be who you are, and nothing shows them better than actually doing it yourself,” said Webster Thomas Assistant Principal Sue Clark.

Youth hockey team holds fundraiser for West Webster Firefighters

Some young hockey players took to the ice at The College at Brockport Saturday afternoon for a good cause.

The Tri-County Youth Hockey team put together a fundraiser to benefit the West Webster Fire Department as part of its exhibition game against Webster.

The idea for the game actually came from one of the young players who wanted to honor the fallen firefighters.

“So we decided to put the fundraiser together and go out and get prizes and make it a fun event with music and try to make it like a big game for the kids,” said the team's assistant coach, whose son came up with the idea for the game.

The team's head coach challenged the kids to hold a fundraiser at the beginning of the year and as a deputy fire chief in Churchville he says this particular cause means a lot to everyone involved.

Webster principal going bald to benefit West Webster Fire Department

Sue Clark, an assistant principal at Webster Thomas High School, will be going bald since she reached her goal of raising $5,000 to donate to the families of fallen firefighters Tomasz Kaczowka and Michael Chiapperini of the West Webster Fire Department.

Clark will shave her head on Saturday, February 9 during halftime of a Webster Thomas versus Webster Schroeder faculty basketball game being held to benefit the West Webster Fire Department.

Clark says she received fundraising help from Thomas High School librarian Trish Warren and Schroeder High School assistant principal Jeremy McBride who have also agreed to shave their heads.

The Webster Thomas/Schroeder benefit basketball game will be held at 7 p.m. at Webster Schroeder High School. Tickets are $5 and are available at both high schools.

Meet Brandy!

Brandy is a one-year-old Beagle mix who was found as a stray and then transferred to Lollypop Farm.

This little girl weighs in at just 16 pounds, and has a pretty brown and white coat. She came to us in November of last year but was a bit under the weather and stayed in a foster home while she got better. Now she has a clean bill of health and is ready to find a new home! Brandy is very sweet and friendly - she loves people and attention, and she also likes to bury her toys. We recommend that Brandy go to a home with children 6+ and she must meet any dogs already living in the household to make sure everyone will get along. If you’re looking for a wonderful dog that will fit right into your family, come meet Brandy at Lollypop Farm in Fairport.

 To find out more about Brandy, call 223-1330 or visit her at Lollypop Farm at 99 Victor Rd., Fairport 14450. Chloe, our "Friday's Friend" from last week, has been adopted!Meet Brandy!
