  • December 10: Holiday party.
      Members and guests are invited to bring a covered dish to share, a canned good or other nonperishable for Doors of Hope, and your memories of Christmas past; trustees provide desserts. We'll also talk a bit about "Virginia" (of Yes, Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus!) and her connection to our southern neighbor, North Chatham. 6:00 p.m. at Knowlson House, the home of Ron and Barbara Berti, 42 Schumann Road, Sand Lake!
  • January 14, 2020: History of Burden Lakes. Connor Kopcho has had an interest in history, having grown up on Burden Lake. He became fascinated in particular with the history of Totem Lodge, started doing research, and one thing led to another. He now has a lot of memorabilia from the Lodge and has expanded his research and love to the surrounding area. 
  • February 2020 and beyond: Abolitionists in pre-Civil War Troy; a closer look at Tremont Calendars; saving, stabilizing and restoring barns; a new look at Architecture Worth Saving in Rensselaer County; and Methodist Farm history.
  • 2020 fundraiser: Think (almost) June (actually late May)! Think farms! Think June Farms! Details soon!
