Tonawanda News — The City of Tonawanda Library on Main Street may be small, but it’s mighty in its activities for each month. There’s something for everyone from toddlers to seniors. It’s a comforting place to stop by, welcoming with friendly staff ... the chairs are comfortable and the parking lot large. Kudos to the staff.
A phone call came in from a woman in North Tonawanda who’s not sure where to turn. Her mom’s 96 and is in rehab but she’d like to have her mother come home with her.
The problem: she needs a ramp so her mom can negotiate the three steps into the home.
Her husband was a former member of the Tonawanda Lions Club which no longer exists, but she recalls the club donated the work to build a ramp for the disabled.
If anyone knows of a group that could help her out, give me a call or email me and the information will be passed on. (Might be a good Eagle Scout project.)
The water slide that’s returning to North Tonawanda Memorial Pool looks like such great fun. The recreation department is certainly doing its best to promote outdoor recreation for everyone. And it’s more than just for youngsters— there are programs for teens to seniors. One of my favorites is the Easy Listening programs at Fisherman’s Park. Nice going recreation staff.
Graduations are often sad. Especially tomorrow when Kenmore East, Kenmore West, North Tonawanda and Tonawanda seniors will be hugging farewells to their peers who will be going into the work force, military or college. Promises about calling, texting, or emailing will be heard from nearly everyone.
Here at the News, we’ve been following the sad and unjust saga of the closing of St. Francis of Assisi School by an uncaring and proud bishop.
