This Mother’s Day, The Fresh Air Fund recognizes the many remarkable women in the Albany Area that take on the role of “Fresh Air mom” and open their hearts and homes to children from New York City’s low-income communities through The Fresh Air Fund’s Friendly Towns Program.
The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer experiences to more than 1.8 million New York City children from low-income communities since 1877. Fresh Air children are boys and girls, from seven to 18 years old, who live in New York City. Children who are reinvited by host families may continue with The Fresh Air Fund through age 18 and can enjoy extended trips.
“For us, Fresh Air Fund is a highlight of our year and we have a special bond with Adriana and I know other families will fall in love with the program, just like we did, if they volunteer,” said Kerry Ring, Fresh Air Fund host mom.
To learn more about hosting a Fresh Air child this summer, please contact Tenniel Hansen at 518-441-4407 or visit www.freshair.org.
Rensselaer Co. Youth Attend 4-H Tractor Safety Program
Rensselaer County Teens complete district wide 4-H Tractor Safety Program April 22-24, 2019.
Ten Rensselaer County residents participated in the annual 4-H Tractor Safety Program. Over the course of three days, youth from across the Capital District learned about the hazards of agricultural work by participating in a presentation by the New York Center for Agricultural Medicine and Health (NYCAMH) and by visiting local farms and business. The participants were also able to learn, and practice skills related to safe operation of agricultural machinery such as tractors, ATV’s and skid steers. On the final day of the program they were evaluated by written exam, practical skills, and tractor driving. Upon successful completion the participants were given their Hazardous Occupations Safety Training in Agriculture (HOSTA) certification. Youth who complete this course are better prepared to work in an agricultural workplace and operate agricultural machinery that are appropriate for their skill level.
Rensselaer County participants included: Ian Giannone, Ben Howard, Josiah Howard, Sam Herrick Jr, Jamison Miller, Jessie Cameron, Wyatt Cameron, Lane Pelletier, Brayden McMillan, and Konnor McMillan.
The Capital District 4-H Tractor Safety Program would like to thank the following individuals and businesses for their support of this valuable program: Kinderhook Creek Farm, Becker’s Farm Garden Center, Tim Havens of Falls Farm & Garden Equipment Company, Capital Tractor Inc., Washington County Fair, Salem Farm Supply, and Sportline Power Products.

Schodack Supervisor’s Report for April 2019
In a continuing effort to keep residents informed of my activities as well as issues pertaining to the Town, I submit to them this report for April of 2019. As always, further information can be found on the Town’s website or its social media pages.
Earlier this year, after the departure of our previous Animal Control officer, we began to look for a replacement. After beginning this process and looking into the duties and requirements of the position, we quickly determined we needed to make some updates in order to ensure the residents of Schodack receive the best possible service. Over the past several months, in conjunction with my fellow Town Board members, our attorney, and most recently Elizabeth Holmes from NYS Ag and Markets, we’ve worked to develop the new job description and we will be holding interviews to fill this position and should be announcing a new Animal Control Officer shortly.
On April 9th, I attended the Rensselaer County DWI Victim Memorial dedication ceremony. It was a somber but moving event that really drives home what a selfish and reckless decision drunk driving can be and highlighted the all too frequent cost innocent victims pay for it. In this day with ride share programs like Uber and Lyft, there really is no excuse for anyone to drink and drive. I thank Rensselaer County Stop DWI Coordinator John Hourigan for the work he does within our communities and with local law enforcement in the effort to eliminate these tragedies.
And finally, in celebration of Arbor Day and part of their journey to improve their community, Daisy Troop 1762 held a tree planting ceremony at our Town Park. With the help of Park Manager Dan Garvansites, the Daisies placed two trees near our pavilion which will help beatify our park for years to come. I admire these young ladies for their generosity and commitment to being a positive force in their community. I was honored to attend their ceremony and was joined by Town Clerk Deb Curtis, Town Board member Scott Swartz, and County Legislator Chuck Peter.
~Supervisor David Harris
Tracey Rex Reports to the People of Schodack
I believe staying in touch with constituents is an important part of serving in elective office. This monthly report is an example of my commitment to keeping residents informed of the activities of the Schodack Town Board. All town board meetings can be viewed live or at a later date at https://townhallstreams.com/towns/schodack.
During April, the Town Board accepted audits conducted by the Town Comptroller for the Building Department funds, Town Clerk funds, Justice Court funds and Petty Cash funds. The Comptroller performed the audits in accordance with guidelines provided by the Office of the State Comptroller. Performing internal audits of cash collection activities are essential for improving government operations, ensuring compliance with laws and regulations, and protecting assets.
The Town Board approved the Road Program as proposed by the Superintendent of Highways to resurface with hot-mix asphalt on Apple Tree Lane, Clove Road, Cynthia Lane, Jensis Road, Old Miller Road and Shelterwood Road. Additionally, crack fill/single chip seal treatments will be applied on Beaver Road, Knickerbocker Road, Lape Road, Palmer Road, Poyneer Road, Rice Road, Sagendorf Road and Schoolhouse Road. Thank you to our Highway Department workers for their dedicated service to maintaining over 100 miles of town-owned roads.
I believe the work of a Town Board member goes beyond attending meetings and casting votes on resolutions. To me, it is also important to be actively engaged in our community, attending events, and supporting local organizations and good causes.
It was an honor to attend the annual Rensselaer County DWI Memorial Ceremony hosted by Rensselaer County District Attorney Mary Pat Donnelly. Families of loved ones, community members and elected officials were in attendance to honor the lives lost to impaired drivers and to give hope in saving lives from being stolen by the dangerous decision to drive while impaired.
I had a great time participating in the East Greenbush-Castleton Youth Baseball and Softball League Opening Day Parade and Ceremony. Best wishes to the players and thank you to the coaches who teach our youth the game of baseball/softball and the important values of teamwork and fair play. Play ball!

Zara Davis named RIT Outstanding Undergraduate Scholar
ROCHESTER, NY — More than 100 Rochester Institute of Technology students, including Zara Davis of Wynantskill (12198), were honored March 28 as Outstanding Undergraduate Scholars. The students were also able to invite the high school or community college teacher that made the most impact on their education.
The Outstanding Undergraduate Scholar Awards held annually since 1976 honored students who have achieved at least a 3.85 GPA. The scholars have maintained a high standard of academic excellence while also giving back to their community through civic or volunteer work, conducting research or being engaged in a co-op or work in their field of study.
“You should be so proud of yourselves,” Ellen Granberg, RIT provost and senior vice president for Academic Affairs, told them at the ceremony. “The program lists many of your achievements, awards and research breakthroughs. However, what it doesn’t mention are the countless hours that you spent studying or working on a project, completing a piece of artwork or checking your research results. Your commitment to excellence shines through.”

Sheriff Patrick Russo Announces Membership Drive
The New York State Sheriffs’ Institute will begin its annual Honorary Membership drive in Rensselaer County according to Sheriff Patrick Russo.
The New York State Sheriffs’ Institute was established in 1979. It is a not-for-profit corporation, tax exempt organization, and contributions to the Institute are tax deductible.
While the Sheriff’s Office is a unit of county government, many of the concerns of Sheriffs and other law enforcement agencies are best addressed on a statewide level. The Sheriffs’ Institute provides centralized training programs and services for all Sheriffs’ Offices, where those programs and services would be unavailable or impractical on a single county basis.
The flagship program of the Sheriffs’ Institute is the Sheriffs’ Summer Camp for economically challenged children. The Sheriffs’ Camp, in its 42nd year of operation, is located on Keuka Lake and 840 children from across New York State attend each summer. The Sheriffs’ Institute pays the entire cost of the camp stay and transportation. Most children attending wouldn’t otherwise have an opportunity for vacation travel or a summer camp experience.
“In these difficult economic times we cannot forget our youth who will not have the opportunity for a summer camp experience or a summer vacation,” Sheriff Patrick Russo said. “By becoming an honorary member, you are supporting the Sheriffs’ Summer Camp for economically disadvantaged children.”
In addition, the Sheriffs’ Institute operates a scholarship program that provides one scholarship to each of New York State’s Community College’s Criminal Justice Programs. This program is designed to help attract the best and the brightest to the criminal justice vocation.
For more information about the Sheriffs’ Summer Camp and other Sheriffs’ Institute Programs, visit our website, www.sheriffsinstitute.org or simply google “Sheriffs’ Institute kids” and it will be your first option.
Financial support for many of the Sheriffs’ Institute programs comes from Honorary Membership dues. Any persons interested in supporting the efforts of the New York State Sheriffs’ Institute by becoming an Honorary Member should contact the Sheriff if they do not receive an invitation in the mail or visit our web site at: www.sheriffsinstitute.org to download an application.

SALT is a 13-year-old not-for-profit which manages 60 acres of land open to the public for passive recreation. Access to the property is from Thoroughbred Dr. off Palmer Rd. SALT’s biggest expense is insurance.
