Town of Sand Lake Volunteers

SAND LAKE – A big “Thank You” to everyone that participated in this past weekend’s “Make Sand Lake Shine!” Spring Clean-Up and the numerous organizations and businesses that participated to make it a huge success.  It was a pleasure to work alongside so many friends and neighbors.  Please mark your calendars for a Fall Clean-Up on Saturday, October 3, 2021.  

Additionally, we are seeking talented residents to serve on both the Communication & Marketing and the Community Engagement Committees.  These committees will be active soon and will be assisted by the Sand Lake Planning Oversight Committee to get up and running.

The Communication & Marketing Committee will create and manage a marketing plan to promote our Town’s recreational, cultural, arts, and historic resources.  

The Community Engagement Committee will create and manage a volunteerism plan to connect volunteers with organizations and work with the Communication & Marketing Committee to promote volunteerism and community involvement. 

All residents with a desire to promote Sand Lake are welcome to get involved.

Residents with questions or have an interest in volunteering for these committees should contact David Post, Chair of the Planning Oversite Committee at SLPOC@nullsand-lake.us .  

Tracey Rex Reports to the People of Schodack

SCHODACK – I believe staying in touch with constituents is an important part of serving in elective office. This report, published every month since I took office in 2016, is an example of my commitment to keeping Schodack residents informed about town government news and community events.

During April, the Town Board approved the 2021 Road Program. Roads scheduled to be resurfaced with hot-mix asphalt are: Bame Road, Brookview Station Road, Castleridge Blvd., Columbia Ave., Dutch Drive, Hickory Drive, Jensis Road, Old Miller Road, Ridgeview Circle, Rosecrans Ave., Saddle Club Hill Drive and Thickett Road.

Crack fill/single chip seal treatments will be applied on Boyce Road, East Hill Road, Garrison Hill Road, McClellan Road, Old Post Road South, Rohloff Road and Waterbury Road. Thank you to our Highway Department workers for their dedicated service to maintaining over 100 miles of town roads.

The Town of Schodack Day Camp will be offering a modified version (half-day sessions) of camp this summer from July 12 through August 6 at Castleton Elementary School and Maple Hill Middle School. Our Youth and Recreation Department will also offer 10 STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) program events at Schodack Town Park from July 12 through August 6. For more information about Day Camp and STEM events, visit www.schodack.org and click the Youth Recreation link.

Recently, I joined elected officials and others in volunteering for the Community Partnership Mass Food Distribution event held in Rensselaer. Thank you to Rensselaer County District Attorney Mary Pat Donnelly for spearheading the event and to Catholic Charities and other community partners who helped provide supplemental food to local families in need.

It was great to see a large turnout for the Friends of Castleton Public Library pancake breakfast fundraiser hosted by the Cherrybrook Café to benefit the CPL, one of our community’s most important treasures.

Tracey Rex, Schodack Town Board
