Dear Pistol Permit Holder:
New York State recently passed the “ NYSAFE ACT” which gives pistol permit holders the ability to “Opt-Out” and request that their permit information be kept private and confidential.
Cattaraugus County is home to a vibrant and diverse agricultural industry. Good communication is essential to developing and maintaining good relationships between farm and non-farm neighbors. This event is a way to bring the County’s farmers and their neighbors together for a night of fellowship and understanding. It will also be a way for the County’s farmers and businesses to showcase what they have to offer each other.
