NU alumnus returns favor

1 Comment

From the Buffalo News:

The Vincentian virtue of charity as taught at Niagara University helped James V. Glynn become a successful businessman, as well as president and owner of one of the world’s most popular tourist attractions — the Maid of the Mist boat ride at the base of Niagara Falls.

Monday, it was Glynn’s turn to “give back” some of his fortune to his alma mater and to those who are less fortunate.

Glynn and his wife, Mary, and their family donated $2 million to establish the Vincentian Scholars Program, among other initiatives at the university.

From CNet News:

Even if you’ve never been here, you almost certainly can recognize Niagara Falls with just a glance. At once massive, majestic, awe-inspiring, and thunderously loud–not to mention the “wettest place on Earth”–this famous waterfall is also one of the largest power generators on the planet.

As part of Road Trip 2010, CNET reporter Daniel Terdiman crossed the Rainbow Bridge and took in the falls from the Canadian side. What he saw, and what millions of others see every year, is truly one of Earth’s most impressive natural features and among the most productive.

Jon and Lily: Niagara Falls

Someone with a Blogger blog has posted lots of picture and details about a recent trip to Niagara Falls:

Hello from Niagara Falls!

Jon and I slept in today till 11am. That was much needed. We walked to Niagara Falls. There were 2 falls: one was the Canadian “horseshoe” falls and the other was the American one “Bridal Veil” falls. We went on Maid of the Mist and Journey behind the Falls. Maid of the Mist was very nice. The boat went near the falls so we got a very good view of the horseshoe. The Journey behind the falls sounded better than it actually was. We went down 38m into a tunnel where we saw the falls rushing down. However, you really couldn’t see much. There was an observational deck which allowed us to see the side of the falls. That was nice but it was a disappointment. We walked to the top of the falls and saw where the water rushed down. That was very cool!

We went because: It’s one of the most famous beauty spots or spectacles in North America, if not the world. Who wouldn’t be curious?

From a press release seen on Hospitality Net:

The Niagara food and wine scene is vibrant and active as Niagara Falls restaurants team up with local wineries to create unforgettable culinary experiences in Niagara Falls, Ontario. In addition to featuring prominently on the Niagara Culinary Trail with a growing number of farm to table restaurants, Niagara Falls also serves as a gateway to a culinary Niagara vacation — just a short drive from Niagara-on-the-Lake wineries and the popular agri-tourism of the Niagara Peninsula.

Follow the link and read the whole press release. I’m left with the question, “Could they have put the word Niagara in a few more times!?!”
