The update | A photo exhibition shows the city’s past; Opening of the Toycade store; Yale Organist at Stambaugh Concert – Business Journal Daily


YOUNGSTOWN – The photograph of Dr. William Gordon will be on display at the Youngstown Jewish Community Center, 505 Gypsy Lane, from Sunday May 1 to June 19. A public reception will be held at 1:00 p.m. on May 8.

Gordon was born in Youngstown to immigrant parents. He remembers riding in a peddler’s wagon with his grandfather, observing life on the streets. This experience sparked his interest in humanity and his desire to share the complexities of individual life.

Gordon was introduced to photography while attending Ohio University. After graduating from the Ohio State University College of Dentistry, he served as a dentist in the United States Navy, where he continued to hone his technical skills in photography.

Gordon practiced dentistry for 61 years.

He and his wife, Carol, are active participants in Inspiring Minds, which provides opportunities for students to improve through education.

Totally nostalgic Toycade opening

SALEM – Totally Nostalgic Toycade is the newest unique, local store to open in downtown Salem.

The 645 E. State St. store, which opened today, is owned and operated by the husband-wife team of Ron and Randi Haines. He specializes in Wrestling, Transformers, GI Joe, He Man, TMNT, and Vintage Star Wars Figures. It also offers vintage magazines, VHS tapes of old cartoons, and a wide selection of girls’ toys, such as Littlest Pet Shop, Polly Pocket, Strawberry Shortcake, and Care Bears.

The Haines launched the store during the pandemic as an Etsy site. The couple began attending toy fairs and soon opened a boutique in Columbiana, which they soon outgrew.

The Salem store is much more spacious, they say.

“A lot of these toys helped me escape the noise of childhood trauma,” Ron said. “I’d like to apply that same principle to this modern noise, where a lot of society just seems darker. It’s a place where people can come and escape this social media madness.

Totally Nostalgic Toycade is open Monday to Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Yale organist to perform at Stambaugh

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — Nathaniel Gumbs, director of chapel music at Yale University, will present a pipe organ concert at Stambaugh Auditorium at 4 p.m. on Sunday, June 5.

Prior to his post at Yale, the New York native served as music director and organist at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Gumb’s work in church music began when he was young at Trinity Baptist Church in the Bronx.

He earned his undergraduate degree from the Shenandoah Conservatory in Virginia, a Master of Music from Yale University, and in 2021 earned a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the Eastman School of Music.

In 2017, The Diapason recognized Gumbs as one of 20 Outstanding Organists Under 30 for Achievement in Organ Performance and Church Music.

This photograph, titled “Caretaker,” by Dr. William Gordon is part of an exhibit at the Jewish Community Center.
