Buffalo, NY – Mohamed A. Mohamed, former Prime Minister of Somalia, will speak on Thursday, August 25, 2011, from 12:15 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. at Templeton Landing (2 Templeton Terrace). 

Mohamed's presentation is made possible by Rotary Club of Buffalo and will discuss his whirlwind seven-month reign as the Prime Minister of an African country that has been struck by the worst drought in 60 years, killing tens of thousands in just the last few months and forcing an exodus by millions to find food and relief. He was appointed Prime Minister of Somalia in October 2010 and resigned in June 2011. The event is $20, includes a buffet lunch, and is open to the public. Seating is limited.

Why Community Sports Matter

Why Community Sports Matter

There is a lot to be said about community sports leagues. They help people connect through a common interest, they're a good way to shake off a tough workweek, and they're a fun way to exercise. Growing up, I was what you might call "sports challenged", so when a friend of mine suggested I join him for an evening of softball, you can imagine my reaction. I reluctantly agreed after we established I wouldn't "have" to play. I could just sit on the bench and enjoy the beautiful day.
