Location of board meeting moved to facilitate ceremony
NIAGARA FALLS -- Tonight's meeting of the Niagara Falls School Board will be held in Harry F. Abate Elementary School, 1625 Lockport St., instead of in the board's Administration Building on 66th Street so the public and members of the board can attend a music recognition ceremony.
The ceremony, citing the public schools' accomplishments in music, will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the school auditorium.
The regularly scheduled meeting of the School Board will convene in Abate Cafeteria No. 132 immediately after the music recognition ceremony.
District Clerk Ruthel D. Dumas said a School Board agenda review session is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. in the same cafeteria.

They include the United Auto Workers Hall, Walnut and Vine streets, Lockport; Johnny's Bike Shop, Payne Avenue and Jackson Street, North Tonawanda; Earl W. Brydges Library, 1425 Main St., Niagara Falls; Youngstown Village Hall, 240 Lockport St.; Adams Fire Company, 7113 Nash Road, Wheatfield; and the old Pendleton town garage just south of Town Hall, 6570 Campbell Blvd., in conjunction with a chowder sale, which starts at 11 a.m., meaning the site will open an hour later than the others.
