Our 2nd Annual Grand Reading Jamboree was held on April 6, 2019. It was held at Schenectady High School. 

Our 4th Annual Hayride and Bonfire was a Girl Scout Event this year. It was a great success.


3rd Annual Hayride & Bonfire October 13, 2017



It was a perfect evening for the hayride under the stars. Everyone enjoyed the music, the bonfire, and the delicious s'mores, donuts and cider. It was a wonderful event!

We want to thank all of the people who made it a big success!
