Buffalo Talks – Buffalo Promise Neighborhood – March 7, 2018

Join us Wednesday, March 7, 2018 from noon to 1 pm.

Buffalo Promise Neighborhood is a designated community school zone, now operating three schools: Westminster Community Charter School, Highgate Heights Elementary and Buffalo Promise Neighborhood Children’s Academy.  A second Children’s Academy is currently under development and is slated to open in 2018.  We recognize when parents and children have opportunity to succeed, families and the community around them are able to thrive. 

Buffalo Promise Neighborhood is a unique public / private partnership that inspires the collaboration and commitment of local leaders in education, business, community services, philanthropy, healthcare and government to help build strong schools that promote academic achievement and healthy development.

Buffalo Bricks Site Invite – November 6, 2017


Monday November 6th at noon, the Working For Downtown Waterfront Committee will be at the Buffalo Bricks Site. Each Fall we meet at the Site to wrap the granite benches in order to protect them during the winter. The wrapping is usually completed within the lunch hour. Any members who are interested in Buffalo Bricks and the Waterfront Committee are invited to come this day, view the Site, and meet the group.

The bricks site is located at the end of Canalside near the BFLO kayak rental kiosk off of South Park Ave, across from the KeyBank Arena. Look for the rose colored granite sign designating the beginning of the Buffalo Bricks location.
