It’s WNYLRC’s birthday and we’re taking the whole year to celebrate! After all, 50 years is a huge accomplishment and we want to share the festivities with you, our members, who have made these first 50 so noteworthy and who have laid the foundation for the next 50.
So we’re spreading the gaiety around and hope to visit all corners of our geographic region and ask you to will stay tuned for additional details in the coming months. Remember, all are welcome at all locations but we’re coming to your particular backyard and hope to see you there for certain.
