Pine Bush Ceremony!
On Thursday, September 18th, the Guilderland Chamber was in attendance to celebrate with the Albany Pine Bush as they held a ceremony designating them at a National Natural Landmark. They chose the occasion of the 100th meeting of the Commission Board to celebrate the high honor by unveiling a bronze NNL Plaque issued by the National Park Service.
Pictures with the new bronze plaque are NYSCED Commissioner and Albany Pine Bush Preservation Commission Chair Joe Martens and national Park Service and national Natural Landmark Representative Joe Finan, Saratoga NHP Superintendent.
Vests for the Guilderland Police
On Friday, September 12th Dr. Kim Keeling and staff presented the Guilderland Police Department with two vests that they raised money and donated to the GPD. These vests are much more condusive to the men and women of the police force as they are able to carry more and have much more tools at their finger tips than the belt that most officers currently use. The vests cost over $250 and not all officers or police departments are able to buy them, hence why Keeling and staff decided to raise money.
Pictured are a vest, Dr. Keeling and Reps from the GPD including GPD Chief Carol J. Lawlor.
YMCA Craft Cabin
On Tuesday, July 29th the Guilderland YMCA celebrated their brand new craft cabin with a ceremony that included songs from the camp goers and a ribbon cutting with the Guilderland Chamber staff, board members, and ambassadors, and also included YMCA representatives from around the area.
