I wanted to get a shout out to your village. I was driving through last Saturday to take my daughter to a college tour in Fredonia when lake effect snow happened. We were completely surprised at how difficult it was to drive it in. A police officer and a salt truck driver coached us through it so we can make it to the main road safely. It was a scary experience for both of us. The officer, in particular, was very understanding and calmed me down from my panic attack. Once on main street, we went into Wyoming Rexall Drug and they were so kind to guide us to the safest route to Fredonia. You have a very lovely village and wonderful people. Thank you!!
