Per tradition, Buffalo-area CAAAN (Cornell Alumni Admissions Ambassador Network) volunteers and all interested alumni of Cornell are invited to our annual CAAAN Kick-Off Dinner, to be held at Chef’s Restaurant in downtown Buffalo on Wednesday, November 13 at 6pm. While enjoying your choice of Chef’s delicious Italian specialties, you will have the chance to learn more about the CAAAN program (the program wherein alumni meet and talk with prospective students about the Cornell experience) while meeting other alumni and learning more about the Cornell admissions process.
Many alumni attest that their role as a CAAAN volunteer is one of the most rewarding activities one can do as a Cornellian!
For those who are new to the CAAAN program, please be sure to sign-up today at their website.
The cost for the dinner is $10 per person, and will include a selection of a main dish with salad, dessert, tea, and coffee. A cash bar will be available. Attendees have the choice of pre-ordering chicken cacciatore, lasagna with meat ball, or Chef’s famous spaghetti parmesan. Please register in advance.
For event questions, please contact Sarah Piskun at email@example.com.
It may be the greatest question of all. Why? It’s born of wonder and curiosity. Why? It makes us think and makes us better. Why? It moves us forward. Join us at the Buffalo Museum of Science and explore WHY!

November Book Club will meet at the home of Celinda Crego ’79. Celinda has selected the book, Orphan Train by Christina Kline. This is a novel based on actual orphan trains that carried orphans to the Midwest.
“Foster teen Molly is performing community-service work for elderly widow Vivian, and as they go through Vivian’s cluttered attic, they discover that
their lives have much in common. When Vivian was a girl, she was taken to a new life on an orphan train. These trains carried children to adoptive families for 75 years, from the mid-nineteenth century to the start of the Great Depression.“ (from Booklist)
There are MANY copies of the book in the Buffalo and Erie County library, in different formats.
