The Changing Face of Retirement: Urban Living

The Changing Face of Retirement: Urban Living

There’s a reason why many of today’s retirees are choosing urban locales. Actually, there are lots of reasons! From the opportunities for entertainment and engagement to proximity to resources most sought after during the retirement years, urban cities have much to offer an aging population.

Buffalo’s Dyngus Day celebrates spring and Polish heritage

On the Monday after Easter, we are finally free from the constraints of Lent, so why not have a party? The folks in Poland thought that was a good idea, and for centuries, theyve celebrated on Easter Monday. Polish communities in America have continued the tradition. In places like Chicago, Cleveland and Pittsburgh with large Polish-American population, people mark the end of Lent and the arrival of spring on Dyngus Day with feasting, flirtation and festivities. But when it comes to Dyngus Day festivals, Buffalo is the unofficial Dyngus Day capital of America! This year, Dyngus Day is April 17th.
