Local Events

To submit calendar items on local events for the print edition, send them to calendar@altamontenterprise.com by Monday at noon for publication the following Thursday.

The Community Calendar gives preference to events of general interest within our coverage area — Guilderland, New Scotland, and the Helderberg Hilltowns — run by not-for-profit organizations. (Special-interest events, such as church services, are published, as space permits, under their own headings.)

Events run, listed by date, free of charge and are edited for the print edition to include the basics.

Those who have served our country and continue to serve have some incredible stories to tell. Join us for the sharing of stories from Veterans and active military members as a way to learn and to honor their service. Rob Spohr, who was deployed to Iraq in 2004 and later served in the NY National Guard, will be sharing his experiences as the Program Assistant for Songwriting with Soldiers.  Local author and Iraqi Veteran, Ryan Smithson, will speak about his time in the Army Corps of Engineers and about his passion for helping other Veterans tell their story.
