The buffalo community continues to display their upmost support for the GRoW team, as many turned up for the Happy Hour at 464 Gallery in Amherst Street on Thursday evening.
It isn’t every day that someone is generous enough to host a Happy Hour all by themself. However, Susan Chowela, a French Teacher at the North Tonawanda Senior High School, proudly showed her support towards GRoW by hosting the occasion. Chowela admitted her love for “architectural buildings and innovative ideas,” which made her decide that she “wanted to help out” the GRoW team.
“I think it is (GRoW Home) amazing and I want to support local students,” said Chowela. “I want to show them that the local community supports them and hopefully keeps up in our area. You know, we don’t want our talents to go elsewhere. We want to help make Buffalo better.”
Intrigued by the technology that could someday be possibly made available in the Buffalo area, guests were deep in their own discussion about the GRoW Home’s potential.
Steve Delmonte, a cartoonist/humorous illustrator, attended the Happy Hour with his wife. He admitted that the GRoW Home project is “pretty interesting” and that hopefully, it can “stand up to the Buffalo winters.” More specifically, he looks for the project to promote “farming,” “more natural produce,” and fresher organics to the Buffalo area. Delmonte was in all smiles, as he helped sum up the night as actually “pretty good.”
From 4p.m to 9p.m, guests enjoyed the great atmosphere that was present at 464 Gallery. Arts and crafts were in display all over, but most of the attention during the Happy Hour was snatched by the GRoW Home model. The night left more than just filled stomachs and quenched thirsts, but it also managed to educate the Buffalo community more about GRoW as a whole.
Chowela, personally thought the night went simply “great.” She didn’t really have any expectations on the amount of people attending. But, according to what she saw, it was just the right amount for a truly Happy Hour.
On behalf of the GRoW team, we would like to say thank you to Susan Chowela and those that made this Happy Hour a true success.
