January Social

RotaryRink01Join us this Saturday around 2/2:30PM at Rotary Rink in beautiful Downtown Buffalo.  After skating we will be heading over to Big Ditch Brewery for some food and drinks around 3:30/4PM.

Rotary Rink is located at Fountain Plaza (in front of the Key Tower) on Main Street between W Chippewa and W Huron St’s.  Big Ditch Brewery is on E Huron and Ellicott St only three blocks east of the Rink down Huron.

Rotary Rink was built in 1991 as a partnership between Buffalo Place (Downtown’s “Village” since 1982), the City of Buffalo and The Rotary Club of Buffalo.  With the Rotary Club donated half a million dollars to the project.

Skating at the rink is Free as Rotary wanted it to be accessible to all, and skate rentals are available for $2 for Children, $3 for adults.

On street parking near Huron would be ideal to go to both the Rink and the Brewery. (Buffalo Place Parking Map)  Both are close to the Metro Rail with a station in front of the rink (Fountain Plaza) if you are coming from the northtowns or City and would like to park and ride.

Below are walking directions from Rotary Rink to Big Ditch it is 0.3 miles (5 min)

October Service Project

11219406_1483748988594431_3812540834410130274_nThis Halloween season the Roundabout Rotary Buffalo Niagara joined up with the Rotary Club of Amherst to volunteer at the Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village (formerly the Amherst Museum)’s annual Halloween Trick or Treat in their historic 1800’s village.  The Club worked at the recently Christened “Rotary Pavilion” which was sponsored and re-roofed by the Rotary Clubs of Amherst and Williamsville.  The pavilion was originally built in the 1980’s by the now defunct Rotary Club of Amherst North and was restored by area clubs to continue that Club’s legacy.

Members of our Club and friends worked Saturday night (with Amherst taking over Friday) to hand out candy to nearly 1000 children and families who joined this safe trick or treat event.

This is the second year the Amherst Rotary has worked this event and they are happy to have the Executive Director of the BNHV as a Member to continue to support the relationship that Club has had with “the Village”.
