October 17, 2022–Olean—William J. Aiello, Mayor of the City of Olean, held a Volunteer Appreciation
Pizza Party at the John J. Ash Community Center on Friday, October 14, 2022 at 4:00 p.m. Numerous
volunteers who serve the City were invited to attend. Guests represented the Litter Control Group, the
Downtown Olean Beautification Group, the Senior Center and the Bartlett House.
Longtime volunteer Larry Ordway was presented a key to the City for his many years of dedication and
service to Olean. As he presented the key, Mayor Aiello said, “Larry is truly an ambassador for Olean.
He is a volunteer at the John J. Ash Community Center and the SWAN Program. He is a volunteer and
guide on the OATS Bus System and he is a promoter and greeter for the Concert in the Park series. He
also volunteers at the Warming House, Church Without Walls and Harvest Field Ministries. He is always
willing to help everyone—and he seems to know everyone.”
Mayor Aiello added, “Olean is a great community and our volunteers work very hard to enhance our
quality of life. From organizing activities at the Bartlett House and Senior Center to working our gardens
and keeping our streets clean, Olean is a much better place because of their hard work and
commitment. On behalf of the Common Council and the residents of Olean, I offer our thanks and
appreciation for a job well done.”
Mayor Aiello also recognized Mary Droney, a founding member of the Olean Beautification Committee,
for her commitment and dedication to the community.
