GUILDERLAND — Under a new construction manager, the $17.3 million project to upgrade Guilderland’s seven school buildings, passed by voters a year ago, is proceeding on schedule, according to Assistant Superintendent for Business Neil Sanders.

At Lynnwood Elementary School last Friday afternoon, children raced through the forest during the annual Apple Fun Run. 

A sparse crowd came, despite the rain, for the annual Guilderland Community Festival that raises money for the Rodino family, plagued by Huntington’s disease.

Fruit of the vine, in the form of wine, and fruits from the tree, apples that could be launched or eaten, were celebrated last weekend at the annual festival held at the Altamont fairgrounds.

Community Service Appreciation Week was scheduled to honor local emergency responders during the week of Sept. 11, the anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 2001.
