Something special at Market Street Art Gallery

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — To many, Memorial Day kicks off the picnic season. Many visit the graves of loved ones and put flags at their sites.

Market Street swapped out the photography with the Lockport Library, which has exhibits on the second floor.

”This is quite interesting for us because we haven’t seen anything like this before,” said “Golf,” a recent engineering school graduate, who was leading a group of eight tourists from Thailand. 

On Saturday at  1 p.m. local author Fred Tomasello Jr., author of “Walking Wounded - Memoir of a Combat Veteran,” will discuss his experiences as a combat soldier. Tomasello, who served three years as an officer is the United States Marine Corps, earned two Purple Hearts and five Air Medals. He suffered with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and will describe his experiences in Vietnam.
