Buffalo Scholastic Rowing Association to Introduce Rowing Team for High School Boys

The Buffalo Scholastic Rowing Association (BSRA) is inviting high school age boys to join the newly established Team BSRA Boys. Rowing experience is not required and there are no cuts — everyone practices and everyone competes!

Rowing is a four-season sport and BSRA teams compete locally, nationally and in Canada. Rowing is also a non-contact sport that provides a full-body exercise. There are opportunities for athletes of all sizes.

Team BSRA Boys is open to any high school boy who wants to be part of a competitive rowing team and is currently attending a school that does not have a rowing program.

Dog Ears Bookstore to Host Author Cathleen Lang

Cathleen J. Lang, author of My Little Light, will visit Dog Ears Bookstore & Café for a book-signing event from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 26. Dog Ears is located at 688 Abbott Road in South Buffalo. 

My Little Light tells the bedtime routine of a happy, thankful little girl. As mom reads her a bedtime story and dad gives her a piggyback ride, she feels safe in the glow of her bedside lamp, her “little light.” Drifting off to sleep, she remembers all that she is thankful for. Whether it is read as a bedtime story or as a quiet evening prayer, My Little Light is enjoyable for the entire family. This story will remain in young hearts through each night and for a lifetime.
