Home court advantage

Newfane, Olcott celebrate new court and another national success


Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — And hopefully, there’s more to come, Guido said. Among the ideas is to improve the park’s tennis courts and possibly add something else, such as disc golf.

“There’s as many ideas as there are people who come here,” she said. “We have a lot of plans.”

When talking about the Newfane community’s support, Pat Greco, the director of operations at Coke’s Buffalo bottling plant, borrowed a well-known phrase from television personality Chris Berman when he describes the Buffalo Bills.

”When there is a need, no one circles the wagons like people in this area,” Greco said.

The Coca-Cola win was the second national contest victory for Newfane and Olcott. Olcott Beach was named the World Fishing Network’s Ultimate Fishing Town last year.

Guido was instrumental in that victory, by leading an “Olcott Beach, New York” social network team to help solicit votes.
