Remembering Simon Griffis

As the one-year anniversary of his death approaches, family and friends of Simon Griffis reflect on the life that merits celebration. Simon—or, rather, “Sibo,” as he was popularly called—was an eternal optimist and dedicated his life to helping others see the light inside of themselves.

Grand Openings

An opening reception for a show of work by artists Malcolm Bonney and Renee Oubre will be held at the redeveloped Remington Rand building in North Tonawanda on the canal (184 Sweeney Street) next Thursday, June 23, 5-9pm. The industrial landmark is being converted by a developer, Kissling Interests of Buffalo, into live-work studios and office space. The art opening is hosted by Evolation Yoga to mark the grand opening of their studios there. There will be music by Easy Crush.
