Sure looking forward to it. It seems like everyone is very happy with what is being done in Lockport now. It is a whole different atmosphere and thankfully this community will move forward instead of horse and buggies as we had the last few years.

Thank goodness Canal Days wasn't turned over to Kelly Turner and his merry band of misfits. Had he got his way this quite probably would have been the final Canal Days event.

I'm expecting a great Canal Days event. If Turner and the misfits don't show their faces it will be a total success.

Instead of taveling all over the downtown area to go on rides then do a little shopping why not put it in the Target lot where everything can fit in one spot?

It is downtown because it is Canal Days. If it were by the highway it would be I355 Days

How about the dishonest "pols" who never show for anything, at any time, including some council meetings?

He doesn't fit that description when considering who was in office at the last Canal Days event one year ago. How fast we forget! "They will be outstanding by their absence".
