Pastries & Preservation-Ready Sites returns to Sweetness 7 on Grant on Thursday, March 27. 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 speaker is Laura Kelly of the Old First Ward Community Center. She will speak on her efforts to make the Old First Ward a historic district. Laura will speak for approximately 20 minutes and a brief Q & A period will follow.
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.
