NIAGARA FALLS, May 2, 2018– The Health Association of Niagara County, Inc. recently hosted a book launch celebration at the Wheatfield Community Center honoring almost 70 Niagara County residents aged 90 and older who took part in their Faces of Niagara portrait book. Almost 150 people gathered last Saturday, April 28th, to celebrate the lives of these remarkable individuals.

Faces of Niagara is a portrait book celebrating Niagara’s older generation that was produced to commemorate HANCI’s 90th year of service to the Niagara County community. The project took a little over one year to complete, including a personalized photo session with professional photographer John Lagomaggiore. Mr. Lagomaggiore, who donated his services for this project, beautifully captured this extraordinary group of individuals from all walks of life who share at least two things in common: they are all 90 years plus and have all spent a good portion of their lives in Niagara County.

“I want to sincerely thank these remarkable individuals for sharing their story with us – from their fondest childhood memories, to their loves and loses,” stated Mr. Kinner. “Each person we photographed was so lovely, honest and giving. We fell in love with their stories and pictures. I’m sure each reader will feel the same way.”

Faces of Niagara books can be purchased for $20 by calling HANCI at 716-285-8224, ext. 100 or by visiting HANCI’s downtown Niagara Falls office at 1302 Main Street.
