City to hold Gazebo rededication party

Tonawanda News — A rededication party for the City of Tonawanda’s newly constructed gazebo at Clinton Park will be held Wednesday from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. 

“We really would love people to come celebrate with us,” Amanda A. Galas-Lofft, director of parks and recreation said. “We’ve been wanting to do this for a long time.” 

The event will kick off with a ceremony, a picnic dinner will also be served and the River Dog Jazz Band will be playing. 

The city is inviting residents to bring their lawn chairs and relax for the night. 

“We hope people will come see it and then will utilize it,” John White, the chairman of the committee that organized to help raise money for the project, said. 

The landmark structure collapsed in 2010 and injured two workers in the process. Construction on a new gazebo began in the summer of 2011, and $80,000 later, was finished in September 2012.

“We wanted to wait to have this until the weather was nice,” Galas-Lofft said. “It should be a great night.”
