"This year, the Chamber's largest initiative is implementation of the Tonawandas Visitor Center at the Chamber to show and assist the public in understanding all that is available in our the Tonawandas," according to the president of the chamber's board of directors, Bob Pecoraro.

"To supplement this initiative, during the summer we will also open a satellite Visitor Center at the Harbormaster facility at Gateway Harbor. Both Visitor Centers will be at no cost to the public."
