Events and Happenings in Colonie

Supporting Our Troops: The Town’s Youth Advisory Board collected gifts for those in the military, presenting them to local Blue Star Mothers at a recent event.  The Youth Advisory Board brings students from Colonie Central, Shaker, and CBA high schools together for a year of public service activities.  Also participating, was Supervisor Paula Mahan, third from left, front row. 

Santa’s Sweet Sixteen Helpers:  Anne Risler, Alivia O’Hagen, and Madison Fisher made quite a donation to the Town of Colonie’s annual Toys for Tots collection – 70 toys and $235 in cash.  The three Academy of Holy Names sophomores requested donations rather than gifts for their joint Sweet Sixteen party earlier this year.   Also pictured at the Town’s annual Toys for Tots employee event on Dec. 4 are the Marine Corps League’s Tim Forbes and Supervisor Paula Mahan.  Anne Risler’s father, John Risler, is a Town employee.

They will be trained at no additional cost to the Town by Colonie personnel and the NYS Department of Homeland Security. The $3,000 of protective equipment necessary to outfit each medic will be paid for from seized funds from drug cases.
