Although we had hoped to get to the end of the month, Mother Nature thought differently. With the Winter Storm Watch being issued by the Buffalo office of the National Weather Service, the Town of Tonawanda Town Board has announced that effective 𝗪𝗲𝗱𝗻𝗲𝘀𝗱𝗮𝘆, 𝗡𝗼𝘃. 𝟭𝟲, 𝗮𝘁 𝟮 𝗮.𝗺., the overnight winter parking ban will be implemented. Those restrictions will remain in place daily, 2 a.m. to 6 a.m., throughout the winter until Apr. 1, allowing town highway crews to complete overnight snow removal from town streets.

Overnight parking restrictions allow for more efficient snow removal from town streets.

Supervisor Joe Emminger said, “Town Highway Department crews have readied their equipment for the possibility of significant snowfall forecast between Thursday evening and Sunday evening, but we still need the public to remove their vehicles from the streets.” He added, “This is nothing that all of us haven’t seen before so just take your time if you need to go out later this week and over the weekend. I can assure you the sky is not falling.”

We would like to recognize Emily Dellapenta as a Superstar Employee!

Emily has worked at the Jefferson Youth Center for about 5 years, growing from a camp counselor to a coordinator and now a supervisor. She has taken on more and more responsibilities during her time with us. Emily consistently goes above and beyond; coming in early to complete paperwork, planning "Fun Friday" activities to mark the end of the week with the kids, and regularly communicating with parents. She is always looking for things that need to be done and is often found cleaning up spills, organizing sports equipment, looking for staff to fill shifts, or helping counselors with their groups.

Thank you, Emily, for your passion, dedication, and hard work - JYC wouldn't be the same with out you and our Department is better with you as part of our team!

We are recognizing June Franklin as a YPR Employee of the Month!

June has been dedicated to the Town of Tonawanda Aquatic & Fitness Center facility for (20+?!) years! She truly is an icon in the AFC. June has rolled with the continuous changes going on in the facility, learning new software as it had been introduced to the facility - and has really been a dedicated employee for us since her first day with us. She knows all of the members' names and always asks how they are doing or just says hello. Rarely taking a day off of work, June is always on time and ready to go for her 4:45AM shift!

Thank you for your dedication, hard work, and friendliness, June! We are lucky to have you.

Town of Tonawanda Youth Board Looking to Fill Two Adult Positions

The Town of Tonawanda Youth Bureau of the Youth, Parks & Recreation Department is seeking two adult representatives to sit on the Town of Tonawanda Youth Board. Ideally, we are looking to fill an opening for a teacher from a private school, as well as an opening for a parent whose children are involved in YPR programs.

Our board is currently made up of six adults and six high school students. These members help make many decisions about the many programs we run throughout the year. Youth Board members plan and run the Annual Youth Board Dinner held in May where we honor Outstanding Youth from each of the high schools, as well as play an active role in organizing and assisting at a variety of community events.

Our meetings are held once a month during the school year, usually on the third Thursday of the month, at 6:30pm at the Youth, Parks and Recreation office at 299 Decatur Road in Tonawanda (in Lincoln Park, near Benjamin Franklin). Meetings usually last about 1-1.5 hours.

Other responsibilities of Youth Board members include:
-Attend at least three community events throughout the year (i.e. Breakfast with Santa, Valentine’s Day Dance, Easter Egg Hunt, etc.)
-Attend all board meetings.
-Play an active role in the planning and implementation of Youth Bureau-run events (i.e. 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament, Chalk Fest, etc.).
-Make recommendations on what programs the Youth Division will run/fund each year.
-Act as a liaison between the Town Youth, Parks & Recreation department and their home school/organization/representative population.
-Take initiative in researching and planning new programs and services.

fyi- There will be a meeting Wednesday, may 31, from 5:30-7:00 at the pavilion next to Lincoln pool on Parker. Please show up to get info on the idea if a "round-about" replacing the traffic light at Parker and Decater (that's right, no cars will be stopping for children crossing to the pool!), one side of the street parking along Parker, and bike path markings along Parker.
Wow I am impressed. This is a wonderful display of the activities for the community, especially for the kids. I had no idea of the variety of activities available to the Town of Tonawanda residence.
