Holiday Event to Benefit AIDS Community Services

Ebenezer: Do You Believe A Man Can Change?, a unique one-man show by Lee John to benefit AIDS Community Services, will be held at 7:30 p.m. December 15 and 16 at the Evergreen Conference Center/BUA, 119 W. Chippewa St., Buffalo. Tickets are just $10 and can be purchased at the door or by calling 499-1755.

Lee John explores Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol in a unique, fun and intensely emotional way. It is a “behind the scenes” look at Ebenezer’s fateful night. In Lee’s version, Jacob Marley is not repentant, yet has one word that can save us all. The three ghosts are “off-duty union workers” that spout wisecracks and wisdom to the audience.  They discuss silk sheets, TJ Maxx, movies, obesity, husky jeans, union rules and yes, Ebenezer. 

Celebrate Holiday Traditions at the Beautifully Decorated and Historic Eldon House

Celebrate Holiday Traditions at the Beautifully Decorated and Historic Eldon House

The Buffalo area is truly blessed to have such a large number of architecturally significant buildings. The same can be said for nearby London, Ontario, where buildings such as the historic Eldon House have become major tourism attractions.

Eldon House, which recently celebrated its 175th anniversary, remains virtually unchanged since the last century. Known as Ontario’s oldest residence, it contains family heirlooms, furnishings and priceless treasures and also boasts a beautiful 19th century-style garden. Built in 1834 for John and Amelia Harris, this historic home remained in the family until 1960 when it was donated to the City of London. The house and its gardens remain a place of beauty and tranquility.
