The Schoharie Valley Singers are beginning rehearsals for their 42nd concert season entitled, “Brightest & Best — A Virtual Concert.” The concert will be viewable on Friday, Dec. 18, beginning at 7 p.m. on YouTube.

The Hilltowns’ annual Memorial Day Parade, put on by the Helderberg Kiwanis Club, has been canceled over concerns of the coronavirus pandemic. The American Legion in Voorheesville and the Parade Committee in Altamont have also cancelled their parades. 

After Dr. Kevin Knuth’s scheduled lecture at the Carey Institute for Global Good was canceled due to concerns over the coronavirus, The Enterprise spoke with the University of Albany professor and former NASA scientist about his research into unidentified flying objects, or UFOs. “The majority of sightings are misidentifications …,” Knuth said of UFO incidents, “but there’s a lingering 3-percent of cases that don’t have an explanation.”

(This event has been cancelled due to public health concerns.)

The Enterprise sat in on a rehearsal for the Berne-Knox-Westerlo Theatre Troupe’s “Flapper!,” which director Penny Shaw-Bartley described as a mad-cap tribute to the Roaring Twenties. Three performances will be held in the high school auditorium over the weekend of March 27.

New Freihofer’s Run for Women ambassador Bethany Mazura said that what she loves about this race is that it is for “all women, all ages, all abilities.” She described herself as a “back-of-the-pack runner” but said, in addition to running the Freihofer’s Run nearly every year, she has also gone on to run in marathons and ultramarathons. 

Kindness was evident as well as enthusiasm on the dance floor Friday night. It was the fifth Hilltown Dance and its organizers are hoping more adults with disabilities will attend the monthly gathering.
