Pastries & Preservation-Ready Sites returns to Sweetness 7 on Grant on Thursday, July 25. The event, which kicked-off in early 2012, is sponsored by the Facebook Group, Preservation-Ready Sites, and is an extension of the group’s online activities. Pastries & PRS is a casual, fun way to meet fellow citizens, architects, planners, historians and preservationists who care about the built environment in Western New York.
The format of the bi-monthly meet-up is to begin with a featured speaker. This month’s speakers are Thomas Herrera-Mishler of the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy (BOPC) and Anthony James, the Parks Architect. They will speak about their efforts to save and restore the Vaux Barn and how its efforts can help Buffalo’s Preservation Community.
Preservation-Ready Sites is an independent/grassroots media watchdog group comprised of citizens interested in architectural preservation and quality new design opportunities in Buffalo, NY. We are NOT another preservation group-we look to collaborate with the other preservation organizations in Buffalo, including Preservation Buffalo Niagara, Campaign for Greater Buffalo, Buffalo Architecture Foundation, Buffalo Young Preservationists, etc. Our mission is to create a media platform/effort that raises public awareness about Buffalo buildings at risk, document issues affecting the status of the buildings, and create calls-to-action to enable the public to get involved.
