Fun Fact Friday: December
Did you know December was initially the 10th month of the Roman calendar (until 153 BC). Hence, “December” comes from the Latin decem, meaning “ten.”
In Roman times, the calendar only had ten months and began with March! The winter period was not even assigned months because it was not an active time for military, agriculture, or civil life.
The month of December originally consisted of 30 days. After January and February were added to the calendar (around 700 BCE), December was shortened to 29 days. Then, two days were added to December in the subsequent Julian calendar, making it 31 days long.
A name that the Anglo-Saxons had for December was “Yule Monath,” which relates to the custom of burning a Yule log during this month as a part of the pagan Yule celebrations. While many of the Yule practices have been lost over time, some of them, such as burning a Yule log, is still celebrated in various parts of the world today.
A new name for December came into being after many Anglo-Saxons were converted to Christianity. In line with their newfound beliefs, they called December “Heligh Monath,” which translates into “Holy Month.”

VAN SERVICES
In cooperation with the Erie County Department of Senior Services,
the Town operates five (5) vans to pick up Senior Citizens, age 60+ (who
cannot use any conventional means of transportation) at their home and
take them to the doctor, food shopping, and other necessary services. This
is a curb to curb service. Residents requiring assistance getting in/out
of their home or the van should bring a friend or family member
along to assist them.
The suggested donation for a one-way trip is $8, but the donation is
confidential and each person determines what he or she can pay. Nobody
will be denied service because of the inability to pay. The vans run five
days a week from 8:30 am to 3:15 pm. Please try to make your
appointments early in the day, allowing plenty of time for your return
home.
Van reservations for MEDICAL APPOINTMENTS can be made a
minimum of 24 hours and a maximum of two weeks in advance (the
sooner the better). All OTHER APPOINTMENTS (shopping, banking,
etc.) can be made a minimum of 24 hours and a maximum of one week in
advance. Appointments will be scheduled on a space availability
basis—medical being the priority. For the health & safety of other
passengers and our drivers, we do not transport residents to the
Laundromat with dirty laundry. WHEN GROCERY SHOPPING,
EACH RIDER IS LIMITED TO 4 BAGS. Van drivers can help
unload the bags but are not permitted to enter the rider’s home.
PHONE NUMBER—858-RIDE (858-7433)
WEEKDAYS, 8:30 AM—4:20 PM TO MAKE A RESERVATION.
This is also the number to call if you are a NEW CLIENT and need to
register to begin using the van service.

Friday Fun Facts: Pumpkin Pie!
Did you know that the pilgrims did NOT necessarily eat pumpkin pie at the first Thanksgiving? Many sources say that pumpkin pie was not introduced until the SECOND Thanksgiving in 1623 (although pumpkins were always a staple of the Native American diet). (It’s even said that Native Americans fed pumpkin to their horses.)
Did you know that the FIRST pumpkin pies were actually WHOLE BAKED PUMPKINS stuffed with assorted spices and apples?
Did you know 50 million pumpkin pies are baked every year?
The LARGEST PUMPKIN PIE on record was five feet around. It used 80 pounds of pumpkin and baked for six hours!
