GUILDERLAND — The face of Guilderland Town Hall for a quarter of a century, Lois Lourdes Hungershafer was also a vibrant and devoted wife and mother.

Five Guilderland seniors signed their letters of intent for college sports teams next fall. Six others signed last fall, meaning 11 Guilderland students will go on to Division I and Division II programs.

GUILDERLAND — The Guilderland Historical Society’s 2014 program series begins Thursday, Feb. 20, with “A Visit From Henry Hudson,” a living history portrayal by Norman Bauman, costumes for the part.

To the Editor:

GUILDERLAND — Leota Mae Zyniecki, known to her friends as Lee, was a pioneer.

She got her driver’s license at age 14 — the last person in Michigan to do so — and got her pilot’s license when she was in her forties.

“She drove with a lead foot,” said her son, Edward Zyniecki III, one of seven siblings.
