Starting with the issue of February 18, 2001, the Gowanda PennySaver News ran a weekly series called "Reflections" compiled by Mary Pankow.

According to the announcement in that issue:
"Each week, scenes from the past, and occasionally the present, will give readers the opportunity to learn more about the Village of Gowanda and the surrounding area.
Knowing even even a little of the past helps plan for the future."

From the March 15th (2001) issue:
Remember when ...
