It’s Never Too Early To Talk About Lake George Steamboat Company.

Every year the Rensselaer County Senior Center hosts a trip to Lake George for a buffet luncheon and a two – hour cruise sponsored by the city of Rensselaer. To be eligible for this great day you must dine with us 12 times or more during the year. We charter a deluxe Motor coach for transportation out of Yankee Trails and the buffet is wonderful. We never get tired of the narrated tour of the million dollar beach, lakeside mansions and the people that lived there in the hay day. Hope you join us. We take ONE bus only!. Please start planning for this day by dining with us early and often

Nifty, Nifty, Nifty Guess who’s Turning 60 (It’s not Donny Elvis)

For the past eight years this lovely young lady volunteered tirelessly at the Rensselaer County Senior Center. In the last two years when the pandemic hit she was here manning the phone, helping with the boutique and assisting where she was needed. I’ve never seen a person so anxious to become 60 so she could be a legal member of the Senior Center. We will be celebrating Kim Valle’s birthday with cake, ice cream, and Donny Elvis on Tuesday, March 15th, to say “Thank You” and welcome to the Senior Center. The menu will consist of Chicken Parmesan w/angel hair, Italian blend vegetables and Italian bread.
