The Town of Tonawanda is made up of not only residents and businesses in our community but also of dedicated and supportive service clubs and volunteer groups who have been serving us for decades. Without these groups, the Town would not be the place it is today and we are grateful for their dedication and support. Please consider joining one of these service clubs, volunteer fire departments or other volunteer groups in your community.
