A retirement party for Lee Wallace, former athletic director at Niagara County Community College, will be held Friday, Oct. 8, at Antonio's Restaurant, 7708 Niagara Falls Blvd., Niagara Falls. Wallace stepped down as the athletic director at NCCC at the end of August, after serving in that capacity at the college since 1998. Wallace has been credited for turning around that institution's athletic programs with upgrades to the basketball and baseball programs as well as the addition of men's and women's lacrosse and the return of the bowling program. Wallace was also instrumental in the creation of the new Thunder Wolves logo and moniker as head of that committee.

Prior to Wallace's stint at NCCC, he worked for the Niagara-Wheatfield School District in various administrative positions and owns that school's record for career wins in girls' softball and basketball. Wallace also served as a member of N-W's football coaching staff through the 1980s and 1990s.

Tickets are $25 in advance and must be purchased by Sept. 30. The dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m. and there will be live music and an open bar after the formal program. For more information, call Mike or Maria 296-7689 or Amanda at 807-6336.
