On June 15 the Buffalo Lodge #1 held its annual summer lay-up party at the historic 1833 Buffalo Lighthouse.  It was a well attended event with over 40 members and guests in attendance.  After dinner on the Lighthouse grounds tours were given of the historic Lighthouse, including being able to climb to the top.  Fun was had by all despite it being  a foggy evening that limited views.  The fog signal of the approaching English River could be heard in the distance.  A ISMA marker is on the Lighthouse grounds.

Roche, Commanding Officer, USCG Sector Buffalo was the guest speaker at the February 20th meeting at Hillview Restaurant.  19 members were in attendance.  His presentation  about the scope and activities of Sector Buffalo was very informative and entertaining.  Capt.

Buffalo Lodge held their annual Holiday Dinner on December 12, 2013 at the Buffalo Yacht Club.  Despite the lake effect blizzard with white out conditions, 23 members and guests braved the weather to enjoy a warm gathering with delicious food and drink.  SUNY-Maritime College cadet Atley R. Sanders (C-12835) on vacation from school in New York City, joined the lodge and became the 37th member at the close of 2013.  The Lodge had a successful year with several guest speakers and events with good attendance.

On October 17, lodge members enjoyed a tour of the Buffalo Maritime Center on Arthur St. near the Black Rock Lock.  Director Roger Allen and Pres. John Montague gave the tour showing all the different programs that the center has for teaching youth and adults the skills of wooden boatbuilding.    One section of the facility is a museum for historical craft significant to western New York and the Great Lakes.  Members enjoyed a delicious Italian dinner after the tour at Faso's Restaurant.
