Working for Downtown Brown Bag Lunch Series

Have you ever thought that it might be nice to learn something about Buffalo during your lunch break? Instead of just sitting there at your computer, surfing for whatever it is that you surf for… day after day. Thanks to the Working for Downtown (WFD), you can catch up on a bunch of important local issues instead of clicking away on your mouse. The organization WFD is in the business of helping to revitalize Downtown Buffalo by offering educational components as well as by providing inner-connectivity and support within the business community.
The Brown Bag Lunch Series is free to the public and takes place at the Central Library at noon on specified dates. Each season there is a different theme. This year the concentration is on “various ways that Buffalo is improving and growing.”
