Out & About

GUILDERLAND — Several years ago, Guilderhaven Inc. took under its wing (pun intended) Joyce Perry’s wildlife rehabilitation program. We like its educational aspect and the caring and compassionate work that it does.

GUILDERLAND — The Guilderland Historical Society’s autumn program series begins on Thursday, Sept. 18, with Guilderland Town Justice Denise Randall presenting a program describing the workings of our town justice system and the challenges facing towns and their justices today.

St. John’s Lutheran Church at 140 Maple Ave. in Altamont will resume its fall schedule. Sunday worship will be at 8:30 and 11 a.m. Sunday school starts at 9:45 a.m.

The guest speaker is Deacon David Vail, his sermon theme is forgiveness, based on Matthew 18:21-35.

The 350 acres of parkland donated by Emma Treadwell Thacher a century ago has grown to now include 2,400 acres open to the public on the edge of the Helderberg escarpment.

For 37 years as a veterinarian, Robert Link traveled through the countryside of the Helderbergs and Catskills, tending to animals. Now he paints those scenes.

He lives in Delmar and enjoys time spent at his summer cottage overlooking Crystal Lake in Rensselaerville.
