Women's Luncheon - Chuck LaChiusa, City Murals

May 16th at 11:30am

Hey, did you SEE that? It’s another great art piece for Buffalo!” We’ve heard that said about 100 times in recent weeks…..and it’s so much fun to see our city shine with new murals and clever graphics on walls and fences!
To add to our enjoyment, Chuck LaChiusa, art aficionado and Keeper of our Legacy as a forward-thinking city, will have a stunning program of art works of Buffalo at large to share with us on May 16th at 11:30. Come early to enjoy a beverage and hors d’oeuvres. We live on the West Side but travel widely to all parts of the city and were confident that almost all of the murals would be familiar. BLAT>>> We were wrong! There were more we HADN’T seen than those we had! Come prepared to be surprised and delighted! Reservations for this outstanding power-point are necessary by May 12. $20/$25. Lunch will be chicken salad on a pita and peach cobbler. Great day all around!

May – Chuck LaChiusa, City Murals

Women’s Society
Founded 150 years ago to promote fellowship and cooperation among our members and to sustain interest in Unitarian Universalist ideals, the Society remains a vital, active force in the contemporary life of the church. Membership in the Society is open to all and is gender-neutral. Dues are $20 per year, but membership is not necessary to participate in our activities and programs. 

Our Speaker/Luncheon Series programs are diverse, stimulating, and interesting, ranging from musical entertainment to lectures from well-known local authors and academics, to presentations on area issues and civic concerns. Presenters are knowledgeable, personable, and enjoyable. Additionally, the Society organizes two outings each year: The Shaw Festival at Niagara-on-the-Lake in Ontario, Canada, and one other to a local site of interest to our membership.
