On Saturday, 75 future leaders from Niagara University’s Student Government Association will be in the north and south ends of Niagara Falls from 10 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. to decorate for the holiday season.
In the city’s south end, NUSGA is collaborating with the South End Housing Initiative to place wreaths on every telephone pole from Fourth Street to Portage Road (Pine Avenue to Niagara Street), and decorate throughout the area.
In the city’s bridge district, NUSGA will team up with Blue Cardinal Capital to hang lights and decorations on the front of the Public Safety Building on Main Street. The Main Street Business Association supplied the items.
“We thank our sponsors and partners for their generosity to bring this special gift to the bridge district community. We are very excited to welcome families and friends of the bridge district and surrounding neighborhoods to join us to light up our trees and help spread holiday cheer,” said Ken Peterson of Blue Cardinal Capital, which recently purchased 38 properties in the north end and Isaiah 61 workforce development program.
“This is an example of NU and its students’ commitment to Niagara Falls and its revitalization,” said Patricia Wrobel, executive director of Niagara University’s Levesque Institute for Civic Engagement. “We are very pleased to collaborate with our community partners to bring holiday goodwill to these two neighborhoods in the downtown areas.”
