Winter on the Town

This event has been cancelled due to the lack of registrations.  Apologies to anyone this may have affected.

It’s an event for senior high youth that heads to the great winter outdoors in downtown Buffalo!

Join us on Sunday, January 29 from 1-4 pm for a great afternoon at Canalside in downtown Buffalo, then warm up back at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church just up Main St.

Event Details

Here’s the plan for the afternoon:OY2016WinterontheTownpromo_email_350x80px

  • 1 pm: gather in the parking lot at Holy Trinity
  • 1:10 pm (no later): walk to the Summer-Best MetroRail station for a ride down to Canalside
  • 1:30 pm: activities and fun at Canalside!  Skate, hang with SharkGirl, maybe even ice bike or engage in some curling action if either are available!  Bring your own skates if you have them to save some $$!
  • 3:20-4 pm: return to Holy Trinity for some cocoa and devotions to warm up to.

After Winter on the Town, the Organic Youth Leadership Team meets at Holy Trinity from 4-7 pm.  It’s a great opportunity to check the team out and be a part of the planning, training and preparing to bring upcoming Organic Youth programs to the masses!  We’ll even chip in free dinner!

Costs for the event (pay as you go):

  • $4: MetroRail round-trip ticket (we’ll be underground for a couple of stops)
  • $6: Canalside skate admission
  • $5: Canalside skate rental (free if you bring your own)
  • Optional Activities (if available):
    • $10: Ice bike rental (1/2 hour)
    • $15: Curling (1 hour)

Too warm to skate?  If Canalside is shut down, we’ll adjust the festivities to take place entirely at Holy Trinity, so come anyway!  Look for updates as the time gets closer to know what’s going down.
