Palm Sunday in WNY


BUFFALO, NY - Christians around the world and here at home were marking the start of Holy Week with Palm Sunday.

The holiday marks the day that tradition says Jesus Christ arrived in Jerusalem, a week before his crucifixion, and was greeted by adoring crowds waving palm fronds.

Saint Martin de Porres church in Buffalo holds its own procession each year handing out palms to their neighbors in the Queen City.

Busy weekend for Buffalo's Broadway Market


BUFFALO, NY – It's probably the biggest weekend of the year for Buffalo's Broadway Market.

Palm Sunday means just one week until Easter, which means people are gathering all of their holiday goodies.

The market of course has all of the Easter favorites: ham, sausage, butter lambs, sponge candy, and even wooden eggs which is a family tradition for some.

One visitor told us every year her grandmother would buy wooden eggs foe the kids at the market. She has collected 100 of them. This year, she got to buy my granddaughter her first egg.

The Broadway Market is 127 years old this year.


Hire a Hero: Vets and spouses at VA job fair


BUFFALO, NY - Education and employment opportunities were on display for local veterans and their spouses Sunday at the Buffalo Veteran Administration's "Hire a Hero" event.

Various companies and colleges discussed potential jobs and schooling options for the returning vets, with the awareness that they are still making a major transition.

Adjustments are always difficult whether you're a civilian transferring from one job or one locality ...we all know how hard that is," said Terry McGuire, a spokesman for the VA. "Well, just imagine being in a combat zone for a year and then everything changing, and coming back and re-assimilating back into society. It can offer a lot of challenges."

This is the fourth year of the veterans' employment and education fair with that expansion to their families.

Groups will restore historic Sattler Theater


BUFFALO, NY - A historic Buffalo theater is about to get a much-needed makeover. Ellicott Development announced on Thursday that it will restore the 100-year-old Sattler Theater on Broadway near Jefferson in partnership with the group Western New York Minority Media Professionals.

It's one of just 23 historic African-American theaters left in the country out of 2,500 that were designated that way. The hope is that the restoration will be the first of many projects in the neighborhood.

"People will see that things are starting to happen here again," said Dwayne Kelly of WNY Minority Media Professionals. "We hope that this will be the center of a new and vibrant community. I mean, we're in sight of the medical campus here. So I think we have to make sure that this neighborhood has something to offer to all of the residents."
