Town of East Greenbush Town Services Coordinator Bids Farewell
It is with sincere bittersweet emotion that I pen this letter to my community. On January 17th, 2020, I will be stepping down from my position as Town Services Coordinator for the Town of East Greenbush. I would like to thank everyone for their support and praise of me during my tenure. Without all of you the Town would not have so many wonderful programs and new additions. For anyone that knows me personally, you understand the reason behind the things that I do- It is always to serve my community and it is always about the people.
To our summer camp families, kids, and staff it is hardest to say good-bye to you. I love you all like my own family and will miss you all more than I express in words. I will always be available to you if you need advice, encouragement, or support throughout life’s complicated roads. I know that the camp will continue on with the goal of making camp a fun and safe summer place to be.
To the adult senior groups, I can’t thank you all enough for your kindness and support of me, new ideas, and patience through difficult situations.
To my co-workers both past and present including Town Hall employees, DPW, and the EGPD, I can’t even begin to thank you all enough for the love and support you have given me over the last 6 years. Goals and tasks only get accomplished through teamwork and the Town has a great team!
I truly appreciate the opportunity to have served the people of East Greenbush afforded to me by two Town Supervisors and many Town Board Members.
While it is difficult to leave so many wonderful people and a job that I enjoy, please know that I have been serving this community either through employment or as a volunteer for well over 20 years. As long as I am living in Town, I will not stop. I will be here to serve, assist, and support this community and its organizations in any capacity I am able.
Thank you all so much, Happy New Year, and please always remember #BEKIND.

Sand Lake FYI
We are off to an exciting start in the New Year. With our new Board members, we are working hard for our citizens in the Town of Sand Lake.
We are in the process of creating a town email newsletter. Amy Lent, one of our residents, is leading an effort to publish a quarterly newsletter that will contain activities and events of our town government and community organizations. This is another way we can increase our communication with our residents and businesses. If you are interested in helping out with this effort, please contact me at Town Hall and I will put you in touch with Amy. We need a little bit of help launching this newsletter and could use the expertise and creativity of a few of our citizens.
Also, for several months last fall, the need for senior public transportation was discussed. I am looking for volunteers who want to participate in exploring the feasibility of senior transportation in our area, or public transportation in general. Please reach out to me at Town Hall if you would like to be involved in this initiative.
At our upcoming January 29, 2020 Town Board Workshop meeting, we will be voting on a resolution declaring the Town of Sand Lake a “Purple Heart Community.” Governments across the United States are becoming Purple Heart Communities in the hope of achieving a nationwide network of Purple Heart communities and bringing more attention to those that have received this distinction for defending our nation. In addition to the resolution, we will be using the Workshop to honor the Purple Heart recipients in our town. We have invited the recipients and/or their families to the workshop meeting in order to be honored at the meetingWe want to make sure everyone is properly recognized for the sacrifice they have endured for our nation. This ceremony is open to anyone who would like to attend.
