Bills Annual Thanksgiving Celebration at Northwest Buffalo Community Center
The Northwest Buffalo Community Center’s Youth Department, along with CWA Local 1122, Councilman Joseph Golombek, and Jaquan Johnson of the Buffalo Bills once again answered the call for the area youth who participate in the afterschool programs sponsored by the center.
They celebrated an early Thanksgiving Dinner on Tuesday, November 15, 2022. This year, celebrating the annual event, youth were served a hearty Thanksgiving meal. There was plenty of food for everyone! Many thanks to all who helped with serving and preparing the gym for the event.
The children performed some of the songs they have recently learned in afterschool, utilizing the keyboard and the ukulele. A special thanks to Corliss White, coordinator of the new music program.
Many thanks to the Buffalo Bills for their continued support. A special thank you to Jaquan Johnson for the encouraging words and visit to the youth.
Annual Halloween Event at Northwest Buffalo Community Center
Many thanks to all who helped to make this event possible once again! A special thank you to Councilman Joe Golombek, Margaret Szczepaniec, and Sandy Frieday-Lewis for their hard work in planning for the event.
Margaret spent many hours making and procuring decorations, to fill the halls and the gymnasium with the “spirit” of the season. Sandy coordinated volunteers and the table sponsors.
A wonderful variety of local organizations and businesses volunteered to sponsor a table, and they brought loads of treats for the children. A route was designed so that the children, arriving at their reserved time, could parade around the room to show off their costumes and be rewarded with goodies.
