Tonawanda News — “I think it worked really well and people were really excited,” Mary Simpson, director of the art center, said of the summer Art Walk. “Websters’s Bistro is involved again, so it’s nice to have a little treat waiting for you at the end.
“We each serve very different audiences, and it was a great opportunity for people to understand what’s going on in North Tonawanda.”
