    Bawdy Buffalo



    As the kids go back to school, we’re thrilled to offer another semester of LUNCH & LEARNS for the Fall/Winter. Always entertaining and always informative, these wide ranging topics will connect with many of us. The topics will be:


    The Story of Our Polish Immigration - From Southern Poland to Black Rock in Buffalo Explore the journey of why the Poles left southern Poland in the early 1900's. We will explore why they ended up where they did, as well as the economic and cultural impacts they experienced as they joined these new communities. Instructor: Mary Ann Kedron, Founder of Kedron Books and More, member of Black Rock Historical Society, Black Rock Riverside Alliance, Buffalo Niagara River Land Trust, & Birds on Niagara


    The Early History of the Sisters of Mercy & Mercy Hospital in South Buffalo We’ll trace the roots of the founding of Mercy Hospital and how the Sisters of Mercy arrived in Buffalo. Instructor: Sr. Peggy Gorman, RSM, who has been a sister of Mercy for 63 years


    Rock N Roll Buffalo A review of the musicians, bands, DJ’s, clubs, concert halls and personalities that brought rock music to the Buffalo area. Starting with the beginning of Rock N Roll in the 50s, it will focus on rock music, but will include all styles of music performed in WNY through the mid-80s, along with photos of the bands and venues. Instructor: Rick Falkowski, Author, lecturer, founder of the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame, and coordinator of Tonawanda Gateway Harbor Concerts & Events.


    They Didn’t Just Get Older, They Got Better — Much Better: A Nostalgic Journey Through Buffalo History with High School and College Yearbooks. Buffalo-area High School and College yearbook photographs and descriptions provide a valuable historical record of the early lives of many Buffalonians. Especially interesting are vintage pictures and stories of individuals from Buffalo, who later in life, became famous. Buffalo has contributed to the greater universe: sports heroes; politicians; musicians; scientists; writers; educators; radio, TV and film personalities; businesspersons; and other notables. It is always fun to look back at the youthful appearance and aspirations of people who, as working adults, affect many of our lives in a profound manner. This talk will focus on the yearbook photos and stories of a handful of famous Buffalonians. The audience will be invited to guess the identity of many of the younger versions of adults which they have seen, heard, met or read about in the newspaper, in books, on TV, or in the movies. Instructor: William R. Greco, PhD, MBA, Professor Emeritus, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center & State University of New York at Buffalo.


    Bawdy Buffalo From the Canal days of the 1800's where vice, crime and "Ladies of Easy Virtue" all resided to the Prohibition years where speakeasies, bootleggers and a beer brewing mayor all helped quench a thirsty city. An entertaining presentation that delves into the seedier side of Buffalo. Instructor: Instructor: Marla Bujnicki, Certified Master Docent for Preservation Buffalo Niagara (PBN), for Forest Lawn and boat tour Narrator aboard the Miss Buffalo II.

  • Monday Movie Matinee

    Monday Nov 6, 2023 12:30 PM to 3:00 PM

    As we get ready for the holidays, our movie selection for November is all about family and giving thanks!


    November 6th– Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009)– After 12 years of bliss, Mr. Fox (George Clooney) breaks a promise to his wife (Meryl Streep) and raids the farms of their human neighbors. Giving in to his animal instincts endangers not only his marriage but also the lives of his family and their animal friends. When the farmers force Mr. Fox deep underground, he has to resort to his natural craftiness to rise above the opposition.


    November 13th– Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987)– Easily excitable Neal Page (Steve Martin) is somewhat of a control freak. Trying to get home to Chicago to spend Thanksgiving with his wife (Laila Robins) and kids, his flight is rerouted to a distant city in Kansas because of a freak snowstorm, and his sanity begins to fray. Worse yet, he is forced to bunk up with talkative Del Griffith (John Candy), whom he finds extremely annoying. Together they must overcome the insanity of holiday travel to reach their intended destination.


    November 20th– Addams Family Values (1993) The Addams Family are up to more macabre antics in this sequel. This time around, Gomez Addams (Raul Julia) and his wife, Morticia (Anjelica Huston), are celebrating the arrival of a baby boy. But siblings Wednesday (Christina Ricci) and Pugsley (Jimmy Workman) are none too happy about the new addition, and try their best to eliminate the infant. When nanny Debbie Jelinsky (Joan Cusack) appears to keep the kids in line, her presence leads to an unexpected treacherous twist.

    November 27th– Hannah & Her Sisters (1986)
    Three successive family Thanksgiving dinners mark time for Hannah (Mia Farrow), her younger sisters Lee (Barbara Hershey) and Holly (Dianne Wiest) and the men in their lives. Lee is having an affair with Hannah's husband, Elliot (Michael Caine), and trying to end her romance with artist Frederick (Max von Sydow). Holly is frustrated by her lack of career fulfillment and her increasing dependence on Hannah's largesse, while being courted by the hypochondriac Mickey (Woody Allen).

    Tuesday Nov 14, 2023 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM

    BETTER BODY BALANCE


    Better Body Balance for Seniors is a specialized fitness class designed to enhance the physical and mental well-being of older adults by focusing on improving their balance, stability, and overall body strength. This class is tailored to meet the unique needs and abilities of seniors, helping them maintain an active and independent lifestyle. 


    Each session starts with a gentle warm-up, including light stretching and breathing exercises to prepare the body and mind. Some balance drills and specific exercises will be offered to challenge and improve balance. Light weights, or bodyweight exercises will be used to build strength in the legs, core, and upper body. Stretching routines are incorporated to maintain or improve flexibility, aiding in mobility and preventing muscle stiffness. 


    The class focuses on movements that mimic everyday activities, such as bending, reaching, and squatting, to enhance functional fitness. Each session concludes with a cool-down segment to gradually lower heart rate and prevent muscle soreness.

  • Grief & Loss Group

    Thursday Nov 16, 2023 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM

    Do you feel lonely and isolated with your thoughts and feelings of grief and loss? Do not worry, you are not alone. Grief and loss are feelings everyone experiences. The best way to help with these feelings is to not be alone. This March, South Buffalo Community Association is starting a “Grief and Loss Group”.


    This open group is unique because: 



    1. We support ALL forms of grief and loss with each other.

    2. Group participants run the group with the guidance of “group leaders”.

    3. Group leaders are like minded peers, not therapists or counselors.

    4. Everything said will be respected, honored, and confidential.

    5. Everyone is welcome and open to share as much or as little as you please.


    If you are interested, the group will meet the 3rd Thursday of every month at 5pm at the Tosh Collins Community Center (35 Cazenovia St, Buffalo, NY, 14220). Please contact Robert Brandon at 716-822-4532 ext. 102 if you are interested in attending the group or have any questions.

    Bawdy Buffalo



    As the kids go back to school, we’re thrilled to offer another semester of LUNCH & LEARNS for the Fall/Winter. Always entertaining and always informative, these wide ranging topics will connect with many of us. The topics will be:


    The Story of Our Polish Immigration - From Southern Poland to Black Rock in Buffalo Explore the journey of why the Poles left southern Poland in the early 1900's. We will explore why they ended up where they did, as well as the economic and cultural impacts they experienced as they joined these new communities. Instructor: Mary Ann Kedron, Founder of Kedron Books and More, member of Black Rock Historical Society, Black Rock Riverside Alliance, Buffalo Niagara River Land Trust, & Birds on Niagara


    The Early History of the Sisters of Mercy & Mercy Hospital in South Buffalo We’ll trace the roots of the founding of Mercy Hospital and how the Sisters of Mercy arrived in Buffalo. Instructor: Sr. Peggy Gorman, RSM, who has been a sister of Mercy for 63 years


    Rock N Roll Buffalo A review of the musicians, bands, DJ’s, clubs, concert halls and personalities that brought rock music to the Buffalo area. Starting with the beginning of Rock N Roll in the 50s, it will focus on rock music, but will include all styles of music performed in WNY through the mid-80s, along with photos of the bands and venues. Instructor: Rick Falkowski, Author, lecturer, founder of the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame, and coordinator of Tonawanda Gateway Harbor Concerts & Events.


    They Didn’t Just Get Older, They Got Better — Much Better: A Nostalgic Journey Through Buffalo History with High School and College Yearbooks. Buffalo-area High School and College yearbook photographs and descriptions provide a valuable historical record of the early lives of many Buffalonians. Especially interesting are vintage pictures and stories of individuals from Buffalo, who later in life, became famous. Buffalo has contributed to the greater universe: sports heroes; politicians; musicians; scientists; writers; educators; radio, TV and film personalities; businesspersons; and other notables. It is always fun to look back at the youthful appearance and aspirations of people who, as working adults, affect many of our lives in a profound manner. This talk will focus on the yearbook photos and stories of a handful of famous Buffalonians. The audience will be invited to guess the identity of many of the younger versions of adults which they have seen, heard, met or read about in the newspaper, in books, on TV, or in the movies. Instructor: William R. Greco, PhD, MBA, Professor Emeritus, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center & State University of New York at Buffalo.


    Bawdy Buffalo From the Canal days of the 1800's where vice, crime and "Ladies of Easy Virtue" all resided to the Prohibition years where speakeasies, bootleggers and a beer brewing mayor all helped quench a thirsty city. An entertaining presentation that delves into the seedier side of Buffalo. Instructor: Instructor: Marla Bujnicki, Certified Master Docent for Preservation Buffalo Niagara (PBN), for Forest Lawn and boat tour Narrator aboard the Miss Buffalo II.

  • Monday Movie Matinee

    Monday Nov 20, 2023 12:30 PM to 3:00 PM

    As we get ready for the holidays, our movie selection for November is all about family and giving thanks!


    November 6th– Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009)– After 12 years of bliss, Mr. Fox (George Clooney) breaks a promise to his wife (Meryl Streep) and raids the farms of their human neighbors. Giving in to his animal instincts endangers not only his marriage but also the lives of his family and their animal friends. When the farmers force Mr. Fox deep underground, he has to resort to his natural craftiness to rise above the opposition.


    November 13th– Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987)– Easily excitable Neal Page (Steve Martin) is somewhat of a control freak. Trying to get home to Chicago to spend Thanksgiving with his wife (Laila Robins) and kids, his flight is rerouted to a distant city in Kansas because of a freak snowstorm, and his sanity begins to fray. Worse yet, he is forced to bunk up with talkative Del Griffith (John Candy), whom he finds extremely annoying. Together they must overcome the insanity of holiday travel to reach their intended destination.


    November 20th– Addams Family Values (1993) The Addams Family are up to more macabre antics in this sequel. This time around, Gomez Addams (Raul Julia) and his wife, Morticia (Anjelica Huston), are celebrating the arrival of a baby boy. But siblings Wednesday (Christina Ricci) and Pugsley (Jimmy Workman) are none too happy about the new addition, and try their best to eliminate the infant. When nanny Debbie Jelinsky (Joan Cusack) appears to keep the kids in line, her presence leads to an unexpected treacherous twist.

    November 27th– Hannah & Her Sisters (1986)
    Three successive family Thanksgiving dinners mark time for Hannah (Mia Farrow), her younger sisters Lee (Barbara Hershey) and Holly (Dianne Wiest) and the men in their lives. Lee is having an affair with Hannah's husband, Elliot (Michael Caine), and trying to end her romance with artist Frederick (Max von Sydow). Holly is frustrated by her lack of career fulfillment and her increasing dependence on Hannah's largesse, while being courted by the hypochondriac Mickey (Woody Allen).
