The Village of Cuba officially celebrated the opening of the Cuba section of the Genesee Valley Greenway at a most successful event on Oct. 6. This one-mile section of the Greenway will see additional activity on Sunday, Nov. 4 when the Friends of the Genesee Valley Greenway sponsor a hike at 2 p.m. 

Take Rt. 446 to Bull Street and look for the yellow gates and kiosk near Rinker’s Funeral Home.  Please plan to join the hike on this newest section of the Greenway.

Greenway activities continue at 3:30 p.m. at the Cuba Opera House at 12 Main Street with two not-to-be-missed programs. Craig Braack, Allegany County Historian, will talk about Cuba’s Railroad History. Michael Doyle, Village of Cuba trustee, president Friends of Cuba Architecture, and FOGVG Board member, will talk about the Cuba Greenway and Opera House projects. This presentation illustrates how walking paths are being developed to connect some of Cuba’s historic sites - the Genesee Valley Canal towpath, the Block Barn historic site, the Genesee Valley Railroad Freight Station, Cuba’s two historic districts, the Liberty Pole, and the Palmer Opera House.

Plan to stay at the Opera House for the 5:30 p.m. dish-to-pass dinner. Bring your favorite dish to share and your table service. Beverages will be provided. This is always a most delicious dinner so please come and enjoy.

 A brief meeting of the Friends of the Genesee Valley Greenway will follow dinner and anyone interested is invited.  For additional information on these activities call (585) 968-0067 or contact  fogvg@frontiernet.net
