Trains Return to Buffalo Central Terminal During Toy and Model Train Show

 

The rumble of steel wheels on rails and the nostalgic sounds of a locomotive steam whistle will once again return to Buffalo Central Terminal during the 2010 Central Terminal Toy Train and Railroadiana Show. The exposition is scheduled for Saturday, September 11th and Sunday, September 12th from 10am to 4pm and takes place inside the Terminal’s historic passenger concourse located at 495 Paderewski Drive @ Memorial Drive.

Admission is $5 for adults with free admission for children under the age of 12. All proceeds from the show benefit the stabilization and restoration of Buffalo Central Terminal.

The Matt Urban Center's Urban Farm Is Up & Running

The Matt Urban Center's Anna Walentynowicz Apartments Tenants Association, at 185 Rother in East Buffalo, has been busy working on their urban agriculture farm project. This project is helping provide our East Buffalo residents with access to healthy foods. Our tenants are growing fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers. These items are being grown on raised beds in back of our building (lots are on Sycamore). The goal is to show our tenants how to grow their own healthy, safe and affordable food.

Just Buffalo Literary Center and CEPA Gallery are pleased to announce the 3rd Annual Writing With Light Student Exhibition. A celebratory reception will be held on Friday, September 10, 2010 from 6:00-9:00 p.m. at CEPA Gallery in the Market Arcade building, 617 Main Street, Buffalo.

Featuring selected works from Just Buffalo & CEPA Gallery’s education programs from the past year, the exhibit will display work from Picturing Poetry, Writer Residencies, and Bookmaking projects.

Writing With Light reached more than 3,500 K-12 students across the region this year, and its emphasis on intensive one-on-one contact between teaching artists and students yields powerful creative results. 

Genevieve DeCarlo, a 3rd grade teacher at Discovery School, P.S. 67 explains, "It was amazing to see the growth of my students... All children should be able to have this awesome learning experience!"
