DAILY REPORT
–Through a $50,000 donation approved earlier this year by late Buffalo Bills Hall of Fame owner Ralph Wilson, Jr., the Ralph C. Wilson Foundation presented Aurora Adult Day Services with a new transportation mini-van to be used to shuttle clients to and from their facility for daily services. Aurora Adult Day Services has reached more than 330 families, offering much-needed opportunities for socialization and mental stimulation of the mentally or physically impaired. The organization relies on specialized vehicles to transport their clients – 75 percent of whom have dementia/Alzheimer’s and 37 percent of whom are 90-years-old and above.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
Doug Whaley, Buffalo Bills General Manager
Q: You’re familiar with how the draft has worked in Buffalo over the last four years. What is different now that you are the GM?
Doug Whaley: I don’t look at it that way. I look at it as the Buffalo Bills draft. These guys up here, the scouts and everybody in this building has helped us and will help us pick the right players. I don’t say it’s my draft, it’s not the coach’s draft, it’s the Buffalo Bills draft. I’m going to lean on my wise council that I have around me and that’s the only way I know how to do it.
