At a recent meeting of the Kiwanis Club of Lewiston, the club recognized the town’s teamwork that has helped make the Lewiston Family Ice Rink the success story it has become. As a token of appreciation, club members presented a $500 check to the town to benefit the Academy Park attraction.
Thanking Kiwanis, Town Supervisor Steve Broderick credited the relationship he has had over the years with Highway Superintendent Dave Trane, a Kiwanis member.
“I didn’t pay attention to Lewiston government before I got involved. But from what I understand, for a lot of years, the supervisor and the highway superintendent didn’t get along the greatest. And there was a lot of problems between the two of them,” Broderick said. Turning to Trane, he continued, “I’ve had no problems with Dave; anything Dave and I talk that we may disagree on pretty much stays in the office and (we) work through everything. That’s one of the reasons the town is getting along so well.”
Broderick went on to offer praise to the Niagara River Region Chamber of Commerce, the Village of Lewiston and to Lewiston Kiwanis for the first Lewiston Christmas Lights Parade, held Sunday night, Dec. 5, on Center Street.
“It was gorgeous,” he said. “I appreciate everything you guys do; that’s what makes Lewiston – the Kiwanis, the Lions Club, people like you. I appreciate everything you guys do.”
