The Newfane Community Neighborhood Watch is kicking off a spring and summer of events with a “Meet and Greet” open house at the Newfane Town Hall Community Center on March 22. The event will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. and all residents of the town and surrounding areas are invited to learn what a “neighborhood watch” is. “Simply put, it’s about our neighbors watching out for each other and the town we live in,” Linda Bixler said. “It’s about taking pride and ownership of our community and schools. It’s about caring.”
