PONIES  ON  PARADE

Oliver and Sweeney Streets Oliver and Tremont Streets Oliver and Goundry Streets Oliver and Robinson Streets Oliver and Center Avenue

 

There are "Ponies on Parade" on Oliver Street,  each ornately decorated in beautiful colors.  This is history in the making, and it's only the beginning.

Oliver Street Community Pride has put in place the first of forty Carrousel Ponies that will be mounted on Oliver Street.  This organization is made  up of local businesses and residents who are working together to make a better community.

Starting at the entrance of Oliver and Sweeney Streets, you will see the leader of our pony herd that was painted by Morgan March, Michael Tuzzo, Victoria Di Guiseppe, and Jennifer Rechin, students of art teacher Mary Ellen Holler at Ohio Elementary School.  Their pony's theme is the Wurlitzer Organ Company of North Tonawanda. 

Pony number two, at the corner of Oliver and Tremont Streets, was painted by Sean Patrick Daly from Sean Patrick Daly Studio, in the theme of Auto Body and Racecar.

The third pony, painted by Joan Horn from Partners in Art, is near the Post Office at the corner of Oliver and Goundry Streets.  This pony represents the historical McCarthy's Fruit and Vegetable Market, which was located on Oliver Street for many years.

The fourth of the herd, at the corner of Oliver and Robinson Streets, was painted by Donna Montinari from Udderly Country.  The theme for this pony is Goerss' Dairy, which was located at this intersection for many years.

Another Pony is located in front of the 100-year-old Our Lady of Czestochowa Church on Oliver Street and Center Avenue.  This fifth pony, the theme for which is the many beautiful stained glass windows in our city's churches, was painted by Jody Zhiem, a local artist of North Tonawanda. 

Oliver Community Pride would like to give great thanks to Mr. Dan Habuda from Dan's Collision Shop, and all of the other volunteers who have offered their time and talent to make our "Ponies on Parade" project a success.

     Anyone interested in volunteering to paint a pony, please call Linda Jufer at 692-9710 or Kay Learned at 694-4715.
