LOCALISM FEATURED: Wow What a Weekend.... Buffalo New York has a lot to be proud of!

People of Western New York

 

 

Buffalo New York has a lot to be proud of.   Buffalo Homecoming has once again showcased the best of Buffalo!   The four day celebration June 26-29 gave us the opportunity to share the great restaurants that the Greater Buffalo Region has to offer, showcase 20 of the most progressive CEO's.   There were 40 companies at the Career Fair with amazing job opportunties.

We celebrated the Arts and Cultural organizations in Delaware Park and saw the launch of the row boats in Hoyt Lake after years of them not being available.  

On Saturday we discovered all that is great about Buffalo from the Downtown Housing Tour and the variety of neighborhood tours.  Then there was the Buffalo Bisons Game -- where I got to invite everyone to the Sunday Brunch at the Buffalo Zoo, where we paid tribute to Tim Russert.   We had a reunion party that joined the 80's Bash because of weather, and in true Buffalonian spirit, one event opened its arms to another!   Buffalo is truly the city of Good Neighbors.   Don't you want to call it home too?

It sounds like it was a good time.  Buffalo sounds better in the summer than under 2 foot of snow
