Portion of Vandervoort designated as 'Hope Way' to honor efforts of local organizations

A portion of Vandervoort Street will be dedicated as "Hope Way" on Jan. 6 to honor the efforts of local organizations and community members who are working together to bring hope to the city and a neighborhood where hope is needed.
In a meeting held on Oct. 3, 2017, the North Tonawanda Common Council voted unanimously to designate the portion of Vandervoort Street between Robinson Street and Keil Street as "Hope Way". This dedication comes on the heels of the North Tonawanda Youth Center ("The Rec") moving from Grant Street into the Lumber City Hope Center on Vandervoort Street. The center serves as a meeting place for Lumber City Church, The Rec, and numerous other community services and events which are frequently hosted at the location.
Third Ward Alderman Eric Zadzilka commented that in North Tonawanda "hope isn't something you think will happen, rather something you know will happen."
On Saturday, Jan. 6 between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., a dedication celebration will be held at The Hope Center, 383 Vandervoort St. The street will be closed for a block party that will include a DJ, food trucks, and activities for kids. Come meet neighbors and celebrate the historic occasion.
For more information about the event, call 716-243-9504.
