We kicked off our fall meeting season with a presentation on “Influential Women in Buffalo During the 19th and 20th Centuries” highlighting our own Marian de Forest and the birth of Zonta International, by local acclaimed author Rick Falkowski.  Mr. Falkowski is a presenter for Erie County Dept. of Senior Services University Express, and the coordinator of the Wednesday on the Canal Concerts at Gateway Harbor Park in North Tonawanda. He cofounded the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame, the Buffalo Music Awards and was the Publisher of Buffalo Backstage magazine. Mr. Falkowski has published a number of books, and is in demand as a presenter on Buffalo Music and Buffalo History at WNY community centers, libraries, historical societies, senior complexes, clubs, and organizations.
