Safety Seat Inspection
10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Saturday, September 24th 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Cayuga Seneca Action Agency
89 York Street
Auburn, New York 13021

Sheriff David Gould reports that the Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office in partnership with Cayuga Seneca Action Agency is offering a Child Passenger Safety Seat Inspection in support of National Child Passenger Safety Week September 18-24, 2016 and Seat Check Saturday on September 24, 2016.

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of injury death for children ages 1 through 12. Most tweens (8 to 12 year-olds) seriously injured or killed in crashes were not wearing seat belts or were wearing them incorrectly. Tweens are also more likely to get hurt in crashes when riding in the front seat. Many deaths and injuries could be prevented if children were properly secured in an appropriate child restraint.

In order to complete the inspection both the car seat and child must be present.

Chicken Barbecue
11:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Arc of Seneca Cayuga’s Self-Advocacy  Group  will hold a chicken barbecue at Fuccillo Ford on Routes 5 & 20 in Seneca Falls on Saturday, September 24h from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.   Dinners include one-half chicken, salt potatoes, cole slaw and roll and butter.  A portion of the proceeds will benefit the House of Concern in Seneca Falls.   Presale tickets for $9.00 are available by calling 325-856-8152; dinners will be $9.50 on the day of the barbecue.


      The Self-Advocacy Group is comprised of people with intellectual and/or other developmental disabilities who advocate for themselves on issues that impact them, whether the issue is personal (e.g., housing, work, friends) or related to public policy.   Recognizing these rights in a respectful partnership between people with and without disabilities can lead to better outcomes and better lives in the community for everyone.

      This  Self-Advocacy Group will use their proceeds to educate the community on issues that directly affect people with disabilities.  By including another not-for-profit organization (House of Concern)  to receive at least half the proceeds of any of their fundraising activities, the Group is giving back to their community and raising awareness of their efforts.

       Jim Rice, President, said the Group is very grateful for the support they have received from  FUCCILLO FORD.  “Fuccillo staff are great!  Not only do they let us use their property, but they help advertise it and sell tickets for us!”    

       Members of the group are also interested in supporting the Seneca County community by volunteering at other community events.   If you would like to include them in your event, contact Wally Cooper at 315-521-5381.
