Memorial Day kick-off to another boating season


Tonawanda News — The Town of Tonawanda Small Boat Harbor opened its boating season Friday at the foot of Sheridan Drive. Dan Crangle, a town councilman, said the town would be offering senior citizens who are residents a reduced season pass. 

“Any resident senior age 60 and over with proof of age and residency qualifies for this pass,” he said. 

Kuebler, who recently retired as the city’s Parks and Recreation maintenance supervisor, said the extended cold weather this winter did make life difficult for a while, though the effort will pay off long term.   

“We had to wait for the ice boom to come out,” he said. “It rushed the start of the season. Memorial Day had always been the kick-off of our boating season. But we opened early the last two years. It’s worth it.”
