Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Good Morning Dear Readers: How is everyone this week? Here it is the last week of September. Where does the time go? I truly thought we would have the Wilson Dog Park completed by now, but it appears we are looking at an early spring date. Bummer!
We’ve had our share of bad news here in the Wilson area. I’m hoping we will get this project underway so we can have some happy events here. In fact, at last Monday night’s Lions Club meeting, Lion Debbie Hendricks proposed having a “Barkus Parade” to the dog park. This would include matching costumes for owners and dogs, look-a-like contests, etc. Watch this column for details of this event.
In the meantime, you should try to visit Krueger Park to see the beautiful new “Welcome Center” being constructed there, thanks to our “Watch Wilson Grow” organization. You will be amazed at the sight. Krueger Park is located right on Route 18 as you enter the Village of Wilson from the east. The location is perfect and is on the “Seaway Trail.” The Village of Wilson is trying very hard to make this a multi-use park for all our residents to enjoy and, I’m sure, will add a much needed boost to both our state of mind and our economy.
Tuesday: Please circle that date on your calendar. That is the day the Board of Education will begin the decision-making process about cost cutting measures, including consolidation within the district. Mr. John Montesanti will be presenting many different options, and Dr. Wendt confirmed that closing buildings will be part of the discussion. He stressed that no decisions have been made yet, but also encouraged stakeholders to attend and stay informed. President Kropp stated that there will be a public forum available after the workshop, which will be held in the Middle School/High School auditorium at 7:30 p.m.
