Explore Buffalo to Offer Speaker Series Event on October 20

“The Afterlife” and “A Grave Discussion” are topics to be discussed at Explore Buffalo’s Fall Speaker Series event from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20, at First Presbyterian Church, 1 Symphony Circle, Buffalo.

The Afterlife
While visiting a cemetery, have you ever wondered what the draped urn on a headstone means or what a broken column symbolizes? The next Fall Speakers series of Explore Buffalo will provide you with some answers. Cemeteries offer a variety of monuments and headstones, which convey an impression or memory of the person who has departed. However, when we look closer, we find deeper messages to be read. In this talk we will look at a variety of symbols found on headstones and memorials and learn their meanings – some of which date back to ancient Egyptian times. As we will see, beyond the simple flowers and crosses, the details of a person’s life lurk hidden beneath the symbols.

Improvements Underway at the Mill Road Scenic Overlook

Improvements Underway at the Mill Road Scenic Overlook

If you’ve driven down Mill Road recently, you may have noticed construction is underway at the Mill Road Scenic Overlook. The Western New York Land Conservancy has hired Johnson’s Nursery to improve the area around the benches that overlook the permanently protected 60-acre property. These improvements will include adding gravel and topsoil to stabilize and level the ground, and planting grass atop the new soil.

The Land Conservancy and the Friends of Mill Road ask that visitors to the Overlook respect the roped off areas around the benches to ensure that this repair work is successful. Visitors are encouraged to bring folding chairs over the next month or so until the work is complete and the vegetation has come in.
