Niagara Gazette — The second part takes place with gospel music and a silent auction at 5 p.m. Saturday at the once Sacred Heart R.C. Church, now the Niagara Falls True Bethel Baptist Church, at 1112 South Ave., and admission is free.
Despite facing a life-threatening operation, Newsome said he has confidence in his doctors and his city, expressing hope that, “… the community can come together to put the Niagara Community Center back together, and to make it good for the kids.”
To bring the center back to life as the thriving heart of a community, Newsome continued, “it will take my friends, neighbors and work associates to come together.”
“It is up to us to help save ourselves,” he added.
When asked that when he recovers, and if the center is reopened, would he like to return and continue his work there.
Newsome grinned and said, “Yeah.”
