Virgil Ave Pipe Club Buffalo, WNY Area Last Monday of the Month, 6:30pm

Buffalo, NY 14216

For more than a year now we’ve gathered on the last Monday of each month at Virgil Avenue Tobacconist (6 Virgil Ave.) to enjoy some good pipe tobacco and fellowship. Many of us look forward to this evening every month.

In October (2013) we decided to form a Pipe Club. There were a number of reasons for this. Ange pointed out that we might get special promotions if we formed a club, and several others agreed that the benefits to all of us would be worth it. At that October meeting we elected four officers to oversee the activities of the club.

The dues for the club are only $10.00 per year. The monthly payment of $5.00 per meeting will continue and the tradition of having a tobacco to share, some pizza, and a pipe to raffle if we have a big enough group will continue. While we hope everyone will join the club, we welcome everyone to meetings as you decide whether you wish to join and guests are always welcome.
