The word community is defined as a group of people who live in the same area.
Art Robinson believes a community is much more than just an area where you live. For Art, a community is a sense of belonging, a place to be proud of.
Art is the president of the Seneca-Babcock Block Club. He has demonstrated great leadership within the Seneca-Babcock community.
Taking the reins
Stepping up as the president of the block club 11 years ago, Art believes, “To make a better community, people need to get involved.” Although he felt “drafted” as the block club president, Art said, “I’m glad I did this.”
As African American History Month comes to a close, Senator Tim Kennedy honored a local man who has worked tirelessly to improve the quality of life for men and women throughout Western New York and New York State. Kennedy sponsored a resolution honoring L. Nathan Hare for his dedicated service to Western New York. Hare leads the Community Action Organization of Erie County, an organization that works every day to prevent and combat poverty in our community.
