The 2012 Olympic games will soon begin in England. Here in Chautauqua County, home of Jenn Suhr, (formerly Stuczynski) the community is again getting excited that she will be representing the USA in the women’s pole vaulting events in London.
Fredonia’s reigning silver medalist will again be celebrated in the community with newly developed yard signs depicting her image that will be available to be purchased. Yard signs with Jenn’s likeness with updated artwork will be available on Thursday after 3 p.m. exclusively at Fredonia Hardware and P&G Foods in Dunkirk.
The price for the signs will be the same as in 2008. Each sign is $15.
The Fredonia Olympic Celebration Committee had a flagpole and monument placed in the Barker Common in 2008 in honor of Jenn’s accomplishments in the Beijing Olympics.
The committee also set up a perpetual scholarship for high school seniors and have had three recipients of those scholarship monies.
The committee has remained active in celebrating Jenn’s achievements. The group has been touched that the community has retained and placed numerous yard signs from 2008 in their yards in anticipation of the upcoming Olympics. They are offering the newly designed yard signs to get the community in the spirit again and encourage all residents to follow the pole vaulting events to cheer on our hometown athlete.
