Chapter Update - Winter Social Event – Curling at Buffalo Riverworks with the APWA YPs

The NYWEA Western Chapter Young Professionals held a winter social event at Buffalo Riverworks on March 6, 2015. The event was a joint event with the APWA Young Professionals group. The weather was frigid, but the group had a great time learning the sport and playing a few games. Afterwards, the group warmed up inside with pizza and chicken wings from Pearl Street Brewery.
