GUILDERLAND — Troop 50 of the Boy Scouts of America celebrated our 50th year of scouting with a special dinner party on Saturday, June 21, at the parish center of our sponsor of 50 years, St. Madeleine Sophie Church.

Thoughts of the changing times, changing landscapes, changing ways of life coincide in several articles uncovered by this historian.

The annual dinner by the Guilderland Chamber of Commerce at the Pinehaven Country Club celebrated some of the town's major developments, included prizes, and featured a motivational speaker.

A violent thunderstorm raced through the region on June 3, downing wires and causing fire when lightning struck a house and barn.

The vacant property has to be zoned for business in order for the Cumberland Farms to be constructed.

To the Editor:

Something uniquely Guilderland took place at the high school on May 14.

About 500 music students from grades five through high school presented a district-wide concert. It’s such a big deal it would be difficult to do on an annual basis so it is presented once every three years.

GUILDERLAND — Nestled just off Route 20 in Guilderland, rows of statues wind around a building and overflow behind it into a scape of small fishing boys, jesters, cats, and busts of ancient Greek deities.

The Sound of Music will be performed March 7 through 9 at the middle school, 6072 State Farm Rd. in Guilderland.

Their fourth album — named 10 Years 2Late because, they joke, they are “10 years too late for a major recording contract” — consists of 14 original songs, about relationships, including budding relationships; full-blown love; and break-up songs.

The land is currently zoned Residential R15 and Residential R40, and would need to be re-zoned to Planned Unit Development — which can exceed zoned density requirements — in order for the project to go forward.
