Representatives of Northwest Bank, New York Region, stopped by Old Fort Niagara on Thursday to announce a new relationship with the Old Fort Niagara Association as presenting sponsor of special events programming.
“We have four major events in the summer,” explained Robert Emerson, executive director of the Old Fort Niagara Association. “It starts with Memorial Day weekend and our ‘Soldiers Through the Ages’ event; the Fourth of July weekend, we have the French and Indian War Encampment, which recreates the siege of the fort. It’s the 240th anniversary this year and the 40th year of the event. During early August, we have an event which focuses on the American Revolution – ‘Soldiers of the Revolution’ – and we end up Labor Day with the War of 1812 Encampment.”
“We’re proud to be the presenting sponsor for Old Fort Niagara events,” said Trina Burruss, vice president, community relationship officer for Northwest, New York Region.
