Tonawanda News — Back to the party, a tent full of people who actually think civic improvement is their job. One speaker movingly told of how she grew up, elsewhere, wishing she could live in a place like this, and now she does, and she does more than simply reside here. She’s an active member of the Kenmore Village Improvement Society.
As has been done since the 1930s, a Memorial Day parade will take place on Delaware Avenue. Yes, the parade has a martial inflection to it, but it is an opportunity for all those aforementioned non-governmental organizations to strut their stuff, the Zonta women, the historical society, the kid baseball teams, the Irish dancers, the schools and their bands, the churches, the garden club — and the KVIS. Give the KVIS an extra acknowledgement as they roll past, a shout-out for putting some sparkle on the excellence of this little village.Ed Adamczyk is a Kenmore resident whose column appears Fridays in the Tonawanda News.
