Our backyard hockey rink is getting quite a bit of usage, but since all of our family hockey players have been goalies, we don’t have a lot of player sticks for the masses. Looking for a couple of youth or adult player sticks that may be cluttering up your basement or garage for donation or a couple of bucks.

To all it may concern:

There was a terrible fire in Albany on the morning of Saturday, Dec. 9.  A mother with five children all just barely made it out on time, but lost everything and are without renters insurance. The downstairs tenants, a young couple in college, are in the same boat.

I’ve started a GoFundMe to help them pick up the pieces. You can learn more there of course. Any contribution or help spreading the word would be appreciated!

Thanks and god bless.

Dylan Pollock, who graduated in May 2017 with a degree in Criminal Justice, was diagnosed this fall with a rare cancer that prevented him from finishing his first semester at SUNY Albany and playing on the baseball team as he’d done here at Hudson Valley. Dylan had excelled on and off the field, and was named to Who’s Who Among American Colleges and Universities. When he was in my English Composition II class, I remember Dylan reaching out to help another student dealing with a difficult personal situation. This act of kindness made a lasting impression on me. He also submitted work to “Threads,” the college’s student literary publication, and was an all around great student.

Despite some recent setbacks, the game plan, according to Dylan, is to get back to school and ultimately get back to playing baseball. Anyone interested in helping Dylan and his family with the mounting expenses associated with his treatment (much of which is taking place in Massachusetts), are invited to visit https://www.gofundme.com/teamdylan9-winnersneverquit.

Thank you,

For those who may not have heard, 11,327 wreaths have been sponsored for the 2017 Wreaths Across America event at the Gerald B. Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery. That puts us at about 4,000 over last year’s number, and enables us to place a holiday wreath on every site in the cemetery! What an awesome accomplishment!!

Placement of the wreaths will begin after the noon ceremonies on Saturday, Dec. 16.

Dear HVCC Community,

I met with the Guidance Counseling Office at Cohoes High School and the counselors expressed to me that their students are in great need of the following items — new or gently used:

Hygiene Products
Long Sleeved Shirts

If you would like to donate, please drop your item(s) off to me via Admissions Office, Room 201, and I will deliver them to the high school. I realize the holidays are near; therefore, I am accepting donations up to the end of January. Thank you, in advance, for your support!


Becky Maroncelli

P.S. Thanks to the Dental Hygiene Department for their donation of toothbrushes and toothpaste.
