NEW SCOTLAND — The Presbyterian Church in New Scotland will hold its annual Summer Barbecue on Thursday, July 9, from 4 to 6 p.m. in the church’s parking lot, at 2010 New Scotland Road in Slingerlands.

The Underground Railroad Education Center’s annual July 4th Oration, commemorating Frederick Douglass’s address “What to the Slave is Your Fourth of July?” will be presented virtually for the first time this year.

This year, the Pine Bush Preserve is unable to hold its 16th annual Lupine Fest in person, so organizers have decided to get creative and are inviting you to share your creativity as well, with a virtual festival online.
