Niagara Gazette — There is always something going on the NACC and April is no exception when the Niagara Arts & Cultural Center celebrates Native American Heritage.

A $30 fee covers the instruction and materials. Class size is limited, so sign up early at 282-7530.
On April 26 the rocking chairs will be set up in the upper lobby of the Memorial Medical Center from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for the 12th annual Rock-a-thon sponsored by the auxiliary with the proceeds earmarked for new equipment and health care programs at the medical center.
This is a major fundraiser for the group and they expect some VIP rockers to be “rocking for a healthier Niagara. You can be one of them, or sponsor someone or just make a donation to a rocker.
