Special statement from the Orchard Park Town Board:

Our first and foremost concern as a Town Board is the health and safety of our residents. As you may be aware, there are now confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Erie County. While we believe the risk to Orchard Park residents is low, out of abundance of caution, we are closing the Orchard Park Senior/ Community Activity Center effective Monday March 16th at 8:00am until further notice. We will update this website as needed.

In an effort to reduce panic and the spread of misinformation, please refer to local and national government websites for the most current and factual data. Suggested resources are listed below. There are a number of malicious websites and social media posts luring unsuspected users to misguided and potentially harmful information.
