Two sisters are battling together as one faces cancer; the community is invited to support the cause.

With five labradoodles coming to Guilderland as service dogs that help students in a popular program in the district, a gala this month raised funds for their training.

A carnival of games inside the packed Altamont Elementary School on March 6 used small white tickets for access, raising funds for a class field trip. Altamont fifth graders read “All the Way Home,” a book by Patricia Reilly Giff in which two young fans of the Brooklyn Dodgers, one from an upstate apple orchard, the other in Brooklyn, form a friendship on Coney Island and plan to return to the bucolic upstate orchard.  Teacher Karen Shaffer said the students already toured Indian Ladder Farms, in New Scotland, and they look forward to visiting Coney Island.

The Caitlin Clancy Golf Tournament benefit was held at the Western Turnpike Golf Course last Saturday in honor of the Guilderland High School graduate who died last year of complications from diabetes during her first semester of college.

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.

After a kitchen fire last month, the family's home on Bradt Hollow Road is uninhabitable as they stay in a family member's house. 

KNOX — Debris has been cleaned from the ground, the roof secured, and the windows boarded up. But a group from Duanesburg High School has been planning to help Nicole Burian further, as her Bozenkill Road home is in need of major repairs after a tornado touched down in May.
