Heritage DiscoveRY Center, "Fall Car Show"

On Saturday, October 1st, we hosted our 2nd Annual "Fall Car Show" at the Heritage DiscoveRY Center Buffalo located at 100 Lee Street in Buffalo. Over 100 all makes and models of cars & trucks were on display. There was no registration fee, but donations to the museum were greatfully accepted. A special shout out goes to our Williamsville Depot recording secretary, Paul Randall for organizing this event, Thank you Paul!
A Disc Jocky supplied music all afternoon and there was a food tent and plenty of displays both inside and outside the museum to view. The weather was perfect and we thank Joe Kocsis and Devan Lawton for their great photos.

Our sincere thanks go out to all our WNYRHS volunteers who helped making our 2nd Annual "Fall Car Show" so successful. Thanks also Marty Visciano, Mark Klepadlo and President Caryl Youngers for traffic control and to Carol Macuso, Art Toale, Joe Kocsis Jr. and Leslie Kocsis for help at our food tent.
