Poster Do you have any historical memorabilia from the CMC?

We are always looking for more historical photos and memorabilia about the CMC. Because the CMC has been a part of the Buffalo community for generations, you may have some historically significant items in your attic or scrap book, or personal stories and connections that you could share with the community.

We are currently looking for:

• Memorabilia from the club (photos, audio, artifacts, musical instruments

• Your memories and stories (letters, interviews)
