About the name Howard8Niagara

In the spring of 2022 I was inspired to create a website that would provide a calendar of local events. This calendar grew to include local newspapers, weather information, accommodations, wineries, restaurants, maps and more.

There was a  need to find a name for the website. Most obvious domain names were already taken and the objective was to go online by July 01, 2022.
