3rd Annual Peach Festival At Island Presbyterian Church - 2007

   The Island Presbyterian Church, 1822 Huth Road, will present its 3rd Annual Peach Festival Saturday, August 18th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. to benefit local Grand Island resident.
   IPC has successfully brought back the Peach Festival long remembered by Grand Island residents from their childhood. The focal point is “Anything and everything Peach” from the now famous “Little Old Church Ladies” and features peach pies and shortcake and the many cookies and bake goods. The festival promises to have a little something for everyone: Bounce House, Cotton Candy, Helium Balloons and Carnival Games for the kids as well as a Silent Auction (many items donated by local merchants), Flower Bulbs and Crafts for sale, and Health & Safety information for the adults. Special guests include the Grand Island Fire Company, and Band “404”.
   Each year IPC donates a portion of the Peach Festival proceeds to the community as part of the church’s mission. Past years donations have been made to the Grand Island Neighbors Foundation, the SPCA, and Meaghan Grotz. This year IPC is grateful and most honored to be able to provide Blake Kenney with a portion of the 3rd Annual Peach Festival proceeds.
   "Blake Kenney first came to us like a baby left on the church doorstep; a letter was left in the church mail box over Christmas asking us to pray for Blake, a 4 ½ years old little boy who lived on Staley Road."
   Here is his story as told by his Aunt Melissa: On Christmas Eve 2006 Blake became sick. We all thought it was just excitement for Santa; however he was still vomiting on Christmas morning. After a day of tests and procedures at Buffalo Women’s & Children’s Hospital, we were told on Christmas night that Blake had a cancerous tumor. The next day Blake was taken in for surgery, removing his kidney, a portion of his lung along with a tumor the size of a football. Blake was diagnosed with a stage 4 tumor. At Roswell he underwent eight days of radiation and weekly Chemotherapy treatments at Children’s starting on January 2, 2007. We hope that after tests this month that Blake’s cancer is in remission. His treatment will continue with checkups every three months thereafter.
   Blake has a mischievous smile and eyes that twinkle when he is being silly. He also loves his family and friends. He loves to work on art projects such as painting sun catchers and magnets, making sand art and coloring pictures. He likes bouncing in bounce houses and trying to play video games with his brother. He wants to be everything when he grows up from a doctor to a fireman to the man who runs the movies in the movie theater. His answer depends on the day and his mood.
   Blake will be turning 5 this September and is looking forward to starting kindergarten at Sidway. He loves to play with his big brother, Brendan, and his baby sister, Brooke. He loves to be outside playing in the yard, jumping on the trampoline and playing construction worker with all of his Tonka trucks. He loves to go fishing with his dad and brother. He is the strongest little boy I have ever met. He does not let his illness stop him. Some times he will ask “why do people say I’m sick?–I’m not!”
   Come and Join Us for a piece of fresh Peach Pie or Shortcake, great fun and fellowship for kids of all ages, and most importantly a chance to help a local Grand Islander, Blake Kenney!
   Anyone interested in participating in IPC Peach Festival is asked to call Cathy Danahy at 716-228-8201 (c), or email to

Island Presbyterian, Troop #254 Present Parents' Youth Protection Training Program - 2006

   Boy Scouts Of America Executive, Christopher Smith, will present a Youth Protection Training opportunity for Parents and Youth on Grand Island 7 p.m. Monday April 3, 2006 at Island Presbyterian Church, 1822 Huth Road.
   Nationwide, April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, and for the sixth consecutive year, the BSA has designated April as Youth Protection Month for councils, units, families, and community organizations.
   Greater Niagara Falls Council along with countless other councils will conduct youth protection training for more than four million youth and adults. Many councils will also provide this training, through BSA videos and DVD's, books, and an Internet course, as a community service to other youth-serving agencies.
   "The Boy Scouts of America advocates parents becoming actively involved with their children," said Roy L. Williams, BSA Chief Scout Executive. "Scouting stresses the importance of parents having ongoing communication with their children. I know that this may be difficult, especially for working parents and parents with adolescents, but it is worthwhile to talk to your children every day and take time to listen and observe. It may be the most important contribution you make in the life of your child."
   Island Presbyterian Church is the chartering organization for Boy Scout Troop 254 and the newly formed Venture Crew 254 for young men and women ages 14-20 who have an interest in high adventure. Together with the BSA, Island Presbyterian Church would like to extend an open invitation to all youth, parents and adults who have an interest in protecting our youth to attend a Youth Protection Training Event Monday, April 3, 2006 at 7 p.m.
