Make two plastic spoons dazzle when you wrap silver tone wire and beads (colored plastic) around them. No experience necessary. Bead color options are green as shown in the photo or blue, pink, yellow or purple. All materials are supplied. Cost is $5.00. Keep these spoons for yourself or make them as a gift. We will be outside in my yard or deck. Feel free to bring a snack or beverage to share. Since this is not for profit please don’t no-show since I have to pre purchase supplies accordingly.
Let's play backgammon. Craft beer or root beer available. You could bring a snack to pass if you desire. I have a few boards and I can teach you how to play. Backgammon is an ancient board game using checkers or "stones" to move around the board to your home base and cast off all your checkers before your opponent. It is a little skill, some luck and a lot of fun. Dice are rolled to advance your checkers. Ancient roots are from India, Arab Nations , Mexico and China. I have four boards which is enough for 8 players. If you have a backgammon board or another game others may like to play, then please bring it.
Meet at Lafayette Square at 9:30 am to begin our 1 mile casual stroll. We will examine the Civil War soldiers and Sailors monument (1884) at Lafayette square and gaze at the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library and Hotel Lafayette before walking down Main Street and checking out the Brisbane Building and the Liberty Building. We will travel down Main Street past the M & T Plaza and past Church Street and check out the Casimir Pulaski Statue which was a gift from Poland in 1979. We will then go to the Ellicott square Building and walk through their atrium if still allowed. Next stop is the old Post Office which is now the Erie Community College downtown site. Then, turn around and come back up Swan Street to Pearl and view the Dun building. Next is St. Joseph's Cathedral at 50 Franklin street and then St. Paul's Episcopal Cathedral at 128 Pearl Street. We can attempt to enter both churches if open. Our last stop will be the beautiful terra cotta embellished Guaranty building at 28 Church Street. This is a walking tour and not an official guided tour. It is free and I will research information on each building or statue. If anyone has other information or researched input it would be helpful and add to the discussion. Please sign up if you are capable of a casual stroll without having to stop and sit or rest. Look for the red head.Cancelled if raining.
