Visitors to the Schoolcraft Cultural Center on Sunday perused artwork, and went back in time listening to the classical sounds of of flute, played by Caitlin Ippolito, and guitar, by Marcello Iaia.

Raising money was the goal, jailbreak was the game last Friday afternoon at Guilderland Elementary in Guilderland to help raise funds to fight cystic fibrosis, a genetic disorder that often affects the lungs. Two Guilderland students — second-grader Avery Schorr, and fourth-grader Braeden Schorr — have cystic fibrosis.

GUILDERLAND — One of the great things about Boy Scouts is watching these young men take on leadership roles and be very successful at it.  Case in point was a recent trip by a group of Scouts from Troop 50 in Guilderland.

GUILDERLAND — In order to continue our strong programs — in 2014, we facilitated the spay and neuter of 755 cats and 154 dogs — we need the support of our community.
