The History Beneath Our Feet
AVERILL PARK – Rensselaer Plateau Alliance Lecture Special–Thursday, July 9, 7 pm via Zoom.
Curious about the old building remains you see in the woods? What about those you never see? For Max Crane, trained as a geologist at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, these questions have turned passion into expertise. With advanced mapping and research methods, Max rediscovers lost homesteads and remains of settlements — some lost for 200 or more years — throughout Rensselaer County. He then uses his metal detector to find artifacts and go deeper into the story of each place. Max will talk about his methods and will show artifacts, explaining and interpreting them as he goes. Visit www.rensselaerplateau.org to register in advance and receive a link.

The Kiwanis Club of Sand Lake Fundraising Drive
SAND LAKE – The Kiwanis Club of Sand Lake is supporting a charity fundraising drive within the Averill Park Central School District to benefit the Capital Region’s Ronald Mc Donald House. The fundraising drive has been extended until February 28th since schools have not been in session for over four months. The goal remains to collect enough pull tabs from soda, beer, soups and pet food cans to fill a school bus!
We ask that parents of our school children and other interested citizens join this effort by removing and collecting as many pull tabs as possible during the months ahead and while schools remain closed take them to the Town Clerk’s office at Sand Lake Town Hall. When schools reopen all collected pull tabs may again be dropped off at the office of one of our three elementary schools, the Algonquin Middle School’s office or to the office at the Averill Park High School.
Please join us to help the Ronald McDonald House as it continues to offer a haven of comfort, love, hope and support – free of charge – for critically ill children and their families. Thank you.
