The Genesee County Chamber of Commerce is celebrating its 50th birthday.
Instead of cutting a cake, they cut a ceremonial ribbon at their Park Road office.
John Dwyer was one of the original county chamber leaders. He told WBTA last night the basic role of the chamber has remained the same for the past half-century

Attending the ceremony were chamber leaders past and present.
Chamber leaders say they have had about 30 business “ribbon cuttings” over the past year.
Mercy Flight, the medical helicopter service, says they are not conducting a door-to-door fundraising campaign. Someone has been going around trying to solicit donations.
If you have been approached, call Batavia Police.
Devon Wright of Batavia is a wanted man. So much so, that Western New York Crime Stoppers has put up $2,500 for information leading to his arrest.
Wright is wanted for a slew of charges including Attempted Assault and Criminal Sexual Act.

Single digit cold is greeting us this morning.
Expect bitter cold today and tonight with light and variable winds.
