March Community Center Events
NEW DINING PROGRAM AT THE BUFFALO COMMUNITY CENTER!
Beginning in March the Buffalo Community Center will be offering a new congregate dining program! In partnership with some of our local restaurants and the Buffalo Lions Club, we will once again be serving a noon meal. Monthly menus will be available at the Buffalo Community Center or visit our website at https://www.ci.buffalo.mn.us/community-center-2/ . There will be a $5.00 non-refundable cost per meal. Diners must sign up 2 days in advance to reserve a meal and we will not accept last minute cancellations. If you cannot make it to the Community Center on a day you have signed up to dine, your meal will be held for you; you can pay for it when you come in to pick it up. You will be charged for your meal regardless of whether or not you come in to eat.
The Buffalo Community Center would like to thank the following participants: BHM Schools, Wild Marsh Golf Club, Loaf and Ladle, and Buffalo American Legion Post 270 for providing our meals; a very special Thank You goes to the Buffalo Lions Club for donating funds to purchase some much needed kitchen equipment. Please support the above organizations and the Buffalo Community Center and try out our new dining program! You can stop in at 206 Central Ave or contact us at 763-682-6036 to reserve a meal or for any questions you may have regarding the program. Thank you!
