L. KING RECEIVES SUNY CHANCELLOR’S AWARD for STUDENT EXCELLENCE

DUTCH HISTORY IN THE CAPITAL REGION 1650 – 1664 - LECTURE On Thursday, May 29th, at 6:30PM, Janny Venema, PhD, Associate Director of the New Netherland Institute will be at the Troy Public Library to discuss The Dutch History in the Capital Region from 1650 1664. In 1652, Petrus Stuyvesant, director general of New Netherland, established a court at Fort Orange, on the west side of New York State’s upper Hudson River. The area within three thousand feet of the fort became the village of Beverwijck. From the time of its establishment until 1664, when the English conquered New Netherland and changed the name of the settlement to Albany, Beverwijck underwent rapid development as newly wealthy traders, craftsmen, and other workers built houses, roads, bridges, and a school, as well as a number of inns. A well-organized system of poor relief also helped less wealthy settlers survive in the harsh colonial conditions. Although Beverwijck resembled villages in the Dutch Republic in many ways, it quickly took on features of the new, “American” society that was already coming into being. Dr. Venema will also speak about Kiliaen van Rensselaer and the patroonship of Rensselaerswijck. This program is free and open to the public. Registration is necessary. For more information, and to register, call the library at 274-7071 or online at www.thetroylibrary.org. The Troy Public Library is located at 100 2nd Street, Troy, NY.

A towering flag pole could soon rise over a grassy knoll in front of Averill Park High School marking a memorial park to the town’s veterans. The proposal has been a long time coming for members of the town American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars posts. The proposal calls for bringing together two small monuments now at different sites and combining them as one memorial. One is a World War I stone near the elementary school in Averill Park and the other a World War II stone at the intersection of Routes 43 and 150 in West Sand Lake. “This will draw the town together,” said Bill Hoffay, a senior vice commander in the Sgt. Walter Adams American Legion Post. “Up to now, Averill Park has the Memorial Day observance one year at the school and West Sand Lake has it the next at the intersection. Though there are differing opinions on the matter of moving the World War II memorial monument from the intersection due to the sentimental values the monument held to our Veterans who still live in our community. Veterans upon returning from the war in 1940 immediately launched a fundraising drive to build the monument to honor residents who did not come home. The World War I monument, which sits near the Sand Lake Elementary School on the district’s campus, will be moved to the new site and stones marking the Korean, Vietnam and Persian Gulf wars will be added as well as remembrances of the Revolutionary and Civil Wars,” said Hoffay. Conceptual plans for the memorial were created by Vollmer Associates design engineer Mike Groff, a Sand Lake resident, who has donated his professional services to the project. “It’s a beautiful spot and I’d like to get the whole town involved in the design”…. “This is something different”, said Hoffay. “It’s something we need to honor our town’s many veterans of war, as well as to preserve the history for our children”.

The Sand Lake Veteran’s Memorial Park got its official start in 2001 when the Town received a parcel of ground from the Averill Park School District. A committee was formed to design the park. Ground breaking was June 15th, 2002 and construction of the back wall was started. Bonded Concrete donated all the concrete, Steve Fiske Construction built the walls, Rifenburg Construction, Cristo Demolition, Inc., White Oak Construction, and Blair Construction provided men and equipment for the excavation work. The total cost for that phase of the project was approximately $60,000 and it was ALL DONATED. In 2009, the walkway between the two walls was poured and flag poles were installed. Money for the flag poles was donated by the Ranellucci family in memory of PFC Raymond A. Ranellucci, who was killed in action in Vietnam, March 15, 1966. In the fall of 2010, we added six granite panels to the wall. At the request of the Sand Lake Veteran’s Memorial Park committee, the Averill Park High School Military History class composed the dedication that is now on the wall. “Dedicated To Those Common Men and Women Who Proudly Served Our Country With Uncommon Valor”. A very patriotic and heartfelt sentiment from some fine young citizens. In 2011, with renewed spirit and a $5,000 donation from the Averill Park and Sand Lake Fire Company and the anonymous donation of $5,100, we continued the work still needed for the Veteran’s Memorial Park. George Brothers – Increte of Albany constructed the rest of the walkways at a discounted price, while Blair Construction brought in top soil and did the final grading. Scheeren’s Landscaping hydro seeded the site for just the cost of materials and The Sand Lake Garden Club generously donated six trees for the park. The Veteran’s monuments in Town were moved to the park with the help of Blair Construction, C.J. Miner, Inc. from Valatie and GrethenChrenger Memorials. The next project was construction of a small shed for utilities, which was donated by Perry-Komdat Funeral Chapel and Bryce Funeral Homes. In memory of Major George Quamo who was killed in action April 14, 1968 in Vietnam, a fountain was built. Jeff Patanian installed the electric along with the pump for the fountain. In the fall of 2011, the wall was engraved with a dedication and the names of all men from the Town of Sand Lake who served in the Revolutionary and The Civil Wars. Eligibility to have a veteran’s name engraved on the Sand Lake Veteran’s Memorial Park wall is that All Veteran’s of the Town of Sank Lake and surrounding communities are eligible. All active duty, National Guard, Reserves, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine men and women are qualified. Combat service is not required and out of town Veterans with family in the town are also eligible. Proof of service is required with a DD-214 and/or discharge papers. Contact the Veterans Memorial Committee for additional information and rates. Though we have made great progress on the park, there is still so much more to do. With your contribution to the Sand Lake Veteran’s Memorial Park, you can help us to preserve the History of Sand Lake’s Veteran’s and Honor all those who served to ensure your freedom. Donations can be sent to Sand Lake Veteran’s Memorial Park, 171 Biittig Road, Averill Park, NY 12018. Never Forget.

AMS CELEBRATES 11th ANNUAL READ ALL DAY

Farms & markets

Read All Day is a special day to celebrate reading at Algonquin. AMS Principal Mr. Messia kicked off Read All Day by reading a story to the whole school. Special guest readers, (administrators, faculty and students), generously volunteered their time to read to large groups in the auditorium. Readers included Mr. Rhode, grade 5 Poestenkill Teacher, Mike Ainsley and Logan Fahrenkopf, APHS students, Mr. Bishop, APHS Assistant Principal and Athletic Director, Mr. Anderson, grade 7 Social Studies Teacher at AMS and Mr. Sibson, Miller Hill-Sand Lake Principal. Award winning author Jennifer Roy was Algonquin’s special guest for Read All Day. Mrs. Roy lives in Saratoga Springs and is the author of over 40 books including Yellow Star and MindBlind. Mrs. Roy presented to each grade and had a special Q and A session, where she answered many questions from our curious students. Students had an opportunity to meet Mrs. Roy and talk with her as she signed their books after school. Read All Day was coordinated by Mrs. Ekstrom, AMS Librarian and Mrs. Conti, grade 6 AMS Literacy Teacher and was sponsored by the Student Council.

GILEAD LUTHERAN CHURCH UPDATE

NO-BAKE DESSERTS MAKE THE PERFECT END TO A GATHERING * Fresh strawberry yogurt pie: The benefits of eating yogurt abound. Yogurt is lower in fat and calories than ice cream, and yogurt boasts active, live cultures that keep your digestive system working correctly. Yogurt doesn’t just have to be reserved for breakfast or a snack. Enjoy it in a delicious dessert, too. Purchase a ready-made chocolate cookie pie crust or make your own from ground chocolate sandwich cookies. Mix together eight to 10 ounces of strawberry Greek yogurt with a small container of thawed frozen whipped topping. Add in slices of freshstrawberries and chocolate shavings, if desired. Pour the mixture into the pie crust and freeze until firmly set. Thaw slightly to slice easily and enjoy.

THE LONG GOODBYE: LIVING WITH GRIEF and ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE Our society has developed an understanding of the grief process experienced with the death of a loved one, but those who care for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias experience a different kind of loss and grief. Anticipatory grief is experienced in steps as the dementia patient suffers loss of cognitive abilities, and caregivers grieve the emotional loss of each part of their loved one’s ability and awareness. Although each person grieves in their own personal way, there is common ground among those who suffer anticipatory grief. This program provides an opportunity to learn and discuss the anticipatory grief process. Refreshments will be served. • Wednesday, May 28 - 7:00 pm, East Greenbush Community Library, 10 Community Way, East Greenbush NY. This program is free, but you must register in advance.

A SPRING TUNE-UP IS KEY

guide

“Homeowners simply want their lawn mower to start when they need it for that first cut of spring and a simple tune-up can make the difference between a hasslefree start and frustrating trips for service,” said Synoilva Shaw with the Briggs & Stratton Engine Marketing department. “While the source of most starting problems is old gasoline— which goes stale in about 30 days—a tune-up can help extend the life of the mower engine and keep it running at peak performance.” Prepping A Push Mower A tune-up for a push mower engine can reduce engine emissions by as much as 30 percent and involves just four easy steps: 1. Changing the mower oil 2. Replacing the air filter 3. Replacing the spark plug 4. Adding fuel preservative to the gasoline. Step-by-step video instructions are available online at www.briggsandstratton.com.

COME FOR A SPRING BIRD WALK at OAKWOOD A flash of color or a bubbling song might have you wondering “What bird is that?” On Saturday, May 31st, join our Spring Bird Walk from 8AM to 10:30AM at Oakwood Cemetery. Birders of all levels are welcome and beginners are encouraged on this easy stroll. Birding is both challenging and rewarding. We will share identifying tips on where to look and what to listen for as we explore the cemetery and see which migrants are back. There’s a good chance we’ll encounter bluebirds, orioles, woodpeckers, mallards, red-tailed hawk and possibly an indigo bunting or bald eagle. Sometimes rain the night before or an overcast day results in increased sightings on our walk. Bring binoculars (a few loaners may be available). Dress for the weather including sensible footwear. Call 1-800-556-6273 to register. Cost is $12pp payable on arrival. Children under 12 free. Meet at the bell. Rain Date is June 1st. Check our Facebook page for updates: Oakwoodcemeterytroyny. Clint Anglin, Naomi Jaffe and Heidi Klinowski will lead this annual Rite of Spring. Tour fees help support the Oakwood Restoration Fund. Friends of Oakwood is a non-profit non-sectarian organization. New volunteers are always welcome.

LOCAL ORGANIZATION ESTABLISHED to RAISE FUNDS for MS RESEARCH

UNBELIEVABLE HISTORY OF TROY COMIC WORKSHOP

A local teen with multiple sclerosis (MS) has inspired the formation of a New York Chapter of Moms Against MS. The group will hold its first event next month to raise funds for the National MS Society’s upstate New York Chapter. The New York chapter of Moms Against MS was founded by Tracey Wardwell, a Greenwich resident whose daughter Carrissa, now 13, was diagnosed with MS at the age of 12. Carrissa is a 7th grader at Greenwich Central School. In multiple sclerosis, damage to the myelin sheath (protective covering around a neuron), in the central nervous system and to the nerve fibers themselves, interferes with the transmission of messages or nerve signals between the brain and spinal cord and other parts of the body. “When my daughter Carrissa was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis on February 11, 2013, our lives were forever changed,” Wardwell said. “We had so many questions about what the future held for Carrissa, our family and what was next: Would Carrissa continue to get lesions on her brain? If she did, would she have another ‘episode’ and would the episode leave her paralyzed? Would she lose her eye sight?” Carrissa’s first episode took place on Mother’s Day weekend in 2012, but she was not diagnosed until nearly a year later. Diagnosis in children is more difficult than in adults because of the frequency of other childhood disorders with similar symptoms and characteristics. In addition, pediatricians may not be familiar with MS because they are not expecting to see it in children. Wardwell, a branch manager for Key Bank, formed the New York chapter of Moms Against MS to enhance awareness of pediatric MS and to raise funds for MS research and patient and caregiver support. Her group will hold a mother-daughter brunch and fashion show on Sunday June 1 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn on Hoosick Street in Troy. Those interested in attending or supporting the event should visit momsagainstms-ny.com.

Mental Illness doesn’t discriminate and 1 out of 4 people will have a mental health crisis in a given year. Yet, when it hits you or your family, you feel alone and abandoned.
