Carrousel Chat: Preserving the Industrial Landscape

Carrousel Chat: Preserving the Industrial Landscape

As part of the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s 2013 National Preservation Month, the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum is pleased to announce the first program in our annual “Carrousel Chat” lecture series. On Wednesday, May 29 at 7pm Tom Yots, Executive Director of Preservation Buffalo Niagara, will be at the museum to explore the opportunities and challenges involved in sustainably preserving the region’s industrial heritage through its aging and abandoned infrastructure. A major center of American industry for more than a century, Buffalo and the surrounding communities saw many manufacturing and processing facilities close after 1950. Yet though the companies left town their factories and warehouses remained, and represent an important chapter in the region and country’s history.

Buffalo State is a Safe Place to Study, Work and Visit

Buffalo State is a Safe Place to Study, Work and Visit

By President Aaron Podolefsky

Over the past several weeks, concerns regarding the safety of Buffalo State’s college community have been raised mainly in response to media attention that’s been given to off- and on-campus security incidents involving our students that have occurred during the fall semester. The cumulative impact of these events has resulted in a misperception about the safety of our campus and has overshadowed the fact that Buffalo State is a safe place to study, work and visit.

Buffalo State is an open urban 125-acre campus, connected to and surrounded by the City of Buffalo’s West Side neighborhoods. Located in the heart of the city’s vibrant museum district in the Elmwood-Grant corridor, our faculty and staff members and students are proud to work and live in such a culturally rich and diverse city that’s home to an array of cultural and recreational activities.

Holiday gala, Sugarplum Fairy Breakfast on tap; Campaign in full swing

As October draws to a close, United Way of Greater Niagara officials are in full-blown holiday mode with two special holiday-themed events set to take place in the coming weeks.

On Saturday, United Way will celebrate the 6th annual United Way Gala, a fundraiser to support the organization’s efforts.  The gala will take place at 7:00 p.m. inside the Seneca Niagara Events Center at Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel. Attendees will enjoy food, fun, a live performance by Penelope and a silent auction featuring hundreds of baskets and other premier items that would be perfect for everyone on your shopping list. Tickets for the gala are still available.

While the gala may get the holiday season started, another upcoming event is sure to get many area families in the holiday mood.
