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.

WFD would like to thank everyone that came to our Walks this summer. We held the final one last week on September 13th on a beautiful, warm evening down at Canalside. Now join us in the fall at our Buffalo Talks starting Oct. 4th, noon, at the Central Downtown Library.
