Audiophiles and electronics aficionados will get the chance to add to their setups this month, thanks to the Buffalo Amateur Radio Repeater Association.

The organization will host its annual ham radio and electronics auction at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 19, at St. Bartholomew’s Church, 2368 Eggert Road, Tonawanda. The doors open at 6:45. The auction will include amateur radio gear, scanners, computer equipment, parts and test equipment. The cost is $2 per person. Interested individuals can receive additional information by contacting BARRA through its website at www.barrabuffalo.com.

Of course, don’t forget the card, chocolates or flowers for your special someone on Valentine’s Day. Next Wednesday will be here before you know it.

BIG WINNER — The Football Squares contest is now officially over. Congratulations to Kaila Werner of West Seneca, who was the winner of the Big Game Contest. She picked Spar Self Defense, which had the matching square. Kaila won a $100 gift card to Brennan’s Bowery Bar. Watch for more fun contests in the future.

CALLING COLLECT — Maybe it’s something with monetary value such as vintage baseball cards or something with personal value such as bottle caps. Heck, you might even collect something that exists only to be collected, such as presidential plates.

If you think we should know about your collection, let us know, and we might feature it in an upcoming edition of The Bee.

If that’s the case, we’ll send a reporter to check it out and interview you about what got you started, why you collect and what makes your collection important to you.

Send an email with a description of your collection and a short pitch of why it should be included to Cheektowaga Bee editor Bryan Jackson at bjackson@beenews.com.

FISH FRY — The annual observance of Lent begins next Wednesday, Feb. 14, and with the season comes the opportunity for many community groups to sponsor fish fries. This week, The Bee has published a one-time listing of the upcoming fish fries occurring in the town. Groups planning to hold these dinners during Lent are now encouraged to send the information to our advertising department.

Anyone interested in placing a paid advertisement for a fish fry should contact Advertising Sales Director Brenda Denk at 204-4937 or at brendad@beenews.com.
