United Way’s Red Feather Volunteer Recognition

Receiving the Excellence in Representation award, The Friendship Table.

UWBA Board of Directors Honor Marshall Insurance Services

 Stacy Shotts-Williams to Receive Red Feather Award

The United Way of the Bradford Area is hosting their Red Feather and Report to the Community Event on May 26th, 2022 at 6:00 pm at the Bradford Club with music by Jim Ronan. 

The Red Feather recognition is to honor a volunteer in our community who is truly passionate about the United Way and the work we do year after year. We also take time to award a funded agency who shares our mission within their own organization with the Excellence in Representation as well as a Small Business Award to a local business who exemplifies the meaning of volunteerism and community within their professional endeavors. 

This year, the Red Feather Award will be presented to Stacy Shotts Williams. Stacy is the Bradford Regional Hospital Foundation’s Executive Director and has been employed in various positions at BRMC for 31 years: she is passionate about the work she does within the community and the individuals she helps to serve, both personally and professionally. Stacy has been actively involved with the United Way of the Bradford Area. Inc. as a volunteer and Board Member for over eight years, having served as a Member, Treasurer and Secretary. Williams lives by a give back attitude, instilled in her by her parents and grandparents, and believes in the importance of paying it forward, especially in a community she has called home since a child. 

Receiving the Excellence in Representation award is The Friendship Table. The Friendship Table is entering its 25th year serving the Bradford community and with thanks to the generous support of the community and other local organizations, they have been able to serve in excess of 110,000 meals since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020. As stated by the Friendship Table, “Giving back to Bradford is important to us because we all feel it is our duty to give back to the community in which we live.” 

In its second year to be presented at the award ceremony is the Small Business Award. The UWBA Board of Directors are pleased to honor Marshall Insurance Services for their longstanding relationship with the UWBA through both Campaign support and volunteer involvement of owner, Mick Marshall. Mick opened the Bradford office in 2000 after working remotely from their original office in NY State, beginning in 1996. 

They recently moved their Bradford office to 34 Foster Brook Plaza and currently have 4 offices including the Bradford office, St. Marys, Cuba NY and Belfast NY. Mick goes on to say “I think it’s important to give back to our community for many reasons. This community has been so supportive to me personally and to my business. I believe we all have the responsibility to give back to our communities and to set that example for others. 

I am one of many around here who are committed to improving the lives of those less fortunate. My father was also from this area and I saw how he dedicated so much of his life to helping others, and I just always knew it was part of who I was and how I was raised. There is something special about the people in Western PA and Western NY. Our community pulls together like no other community I’ve ever witnessed.” 

Please join us Thursday May 26th to honor these three well-deserving United Way supporters along with our 21-22 Campaign Team of Chief Michael and Rebecca Ward. The event is open to the public for a ticket price of $25 but space is limited. Please be sure to RSVP before May 13th by calling the United Way office at 814-368-6181 or email us at sarah.lonzi@uwbanews.org.

National Day Of Prayer To Be Observed Thursday In Allegany County, NY.


More than a dozen Allegany County churches and Christian organizations are joining together next Thursday for rotating one-hour community gatherings for this year's National Day of Prayer.

Ukraine also will be on the minds of many of those attending the annual observance this year, held the first Thursday in May, this year on the 5th, throughout the United States.

The national tradition, created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. invites people of all faiths to pray for the nation.

A coordinating task force says the National Day of Prayer exists to "communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families."

The group represents a Judeo-Christian expression of the national observance, "based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible."

Community residents are invited to attend one or more of the sessions at:
-- 6:30AM:  Knights Creek Church, 2987 Knight Creek Road (County Road 9), Scio.
-- 8AM:  Wellsville First United Methodist Church, 79 Madison Street.
-- 9AM:  Gil's Hills Ministries house, 2478 Brown Road, Wellsville.
-- 10AM:  Wellsville Bible Church, 2908 Andover Road (State Route 417 East).
-- 11AM:  Mission Genesee Valley Hope Center, 1147 Bolivar Road - #5 (State Route 417 West), Wellsville.
-- Noon:  Riverside Assembly of God, 3218 Riverside Drive (State Route 19 North), Wellsville.
-- 1PM:  Wellsville Salvation Army, 25 Pearl Street.
-- 2PM:  The Presbyterian Church of Wellsville, 68 North Main Street.
-- 3PM:  Almond Community Church, 11 Main Street.
-- 4PM:  Brookside Wesleyan Church, 3469 Andover Road (State Route 417 East), Wellsville.
-- 5PM:  Yorks Corners Mennonite Church, 3350 County Road 29, Wellsville.
-- 6PM:  First Baptist Church of Andover, 14 Elm Street.

UPMC Clinical Social Worker: Autism Awareness Jackie Baker, LCSW Behavioral Health, UPMC

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) most recent data, about one in 44 children from the U.S. have been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Autism spectrum disorder is a developmental disability caused by differences in the brain. Some people with ASD have a known difference, such as a genetic condition. Other causes are not yet known. Scientists believe there are multiple causes of ASD that act together to change the most common ways people develop. 

Early Signs of Autism
People with ASD may behave, communicate, interact, and learn in ways that are different. There is often nothing about how they look that sets them apart. The abilities of people with ASD can vary significantly. For example, some people with ASD may have advanced conversation skills whereas others may be nonverbal. Some people with ASD need a lot of help in their daily lives; others can work and live with little to no support.

Signs of ASD often appear in early stages of life and will stay present throughout adulthood. It is key to intervene as soon as a diagnosis is suspected. The earlier an individual is evaluated and diagnosed, the sooner treatment services and resource support can be incorporated into developmental care. Below are common early indicators of Autism:
Rarely smiling at caregivers
Rarely mimicking sounds and movements of others
Minimal-to-no eye contact
Does not respond to his/her/their name
Repetitively stiffens arms, hands, and legs
Delays in developmental movements- rolling over, crawling, etc.
More About the Spectrum

There is no single kind of autism as it manifests in varying degrees from noncommunicative to highly functional. It is often referred to a “spectrum” to reflect this range of presenting symptoms. 

Think of this like the colors on a paint sample strip showing varying shades of the same color ranging from light to dark. At the “light” end of the paint strip or spectrum is the former diagnosis of Asperger’s Disorder. At the other end, the darker end, is the former Autistic Disorder diagnosis. The word “former” is used as we now include these and additional variations of Autism into one collective, encompassing diagnosis of ASD.
Seeking Support

Current treatments for ASD seek to reduce symptoms that interfere with daily functioning and quality of life. ASD affects each person differently, meaning that people with ASD have unique strengths and challenges and different treatment needs. Treatment plans usually involve multiple professionals and are catered to the individual.

If you suspect your child may have ASD, refer to your pediatrician immediately. The need for support will not lessen as autistic children transition to adulthood. Educational, behavioral, medical, and vocational services are just a few kinds of support that is available in your community and your pediatrician can help connect you with local resources.
