Do you have the supplies you need to survive an awful mess? The Sand Lake Town Library is raffling off an “Awful Mess Survival Kit” that includes a bottle of red wine (Yellow Tail Shiraz), a package of Lindt Lindor dark chocolate truffles, an encouraging Willow Tree figurine, and a signed copy of the novel, “The Awful Mess: A Love Story” by adjunct English instructor Sandra Hutchison. (Its heroine makes an awful mess of her life, but manages to find her happy ending anyway.) The survival kit was donated by the author and all proceeds will benefit the library.

Tickets are $2 each or 3 for $5 and can be purchased at the front desk. (The book, which has 163 reviews and 4.3 stars at Amazon.com, also is available for borrowing by library patrons or you can purchase the Kindle version at a special discount at Amazon.com for only $1.99 through April 10.)

The raffle drawing will be held Saturday, April 12 during the Library Volunteer Reception, which begins at 1 p.m.

Chocolate lovers should note that the library also is selling solid chocolate Easter bunnies (both milk and dark chocolate with a festive bow) from Krause’s Homemade Candy at the front desk — for $5 each. Those funds also support the library.

Sand Lake Town Library hours are:
11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday – Thursday
11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday
11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday
1 to 4 p.m. Sunday

Dear colleagues,

On May 3, 2014, I will be walking in the Take Steps for Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation Walk. I have made a bold commitment to raise much needed funds to find a cure for digestive diseases. Our team goal is to raise $1,500.

My husband has suffered from Crohn’s Disease for 17 years (since he was just 16 years old, also the year we started dating). Even after two bowel resection surgeries, medications, dietary restrictions and IV treatments, he still lives in pain every day.  He is the reason this cause is very near and dear to my heart. I hope you will consider supporting me by clicking the link below to view my personal page. If you prefer, you can also send your contribution directly to me in ADM 270 (checks can be made payable to CCFA). Your support is greatly appreciated and needed.

One in every 200 people suffer daily with digestive diseases. CCFA’s mission is to cure Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis and to improve the quality of life for children and adults affected by these diseases. A champion for 1.4 million Americans, CCFA strives to inspire, instill hope, and create a community which empowers patients.

I am asking you to support my fundraising efforts with a donation. Your tax-deductible gift will truly make a difference in the thousands of lives suffering with IBD. If you are interested in joining me on walk day and helping my fundraising efforts, please register to join my team.

I appreciate your support.

Thank you,
Christine Lasch

If you have either a Cub or Boy Scout uniform that is not in use and is ready for a new home, please consider donating it.

I live in a rural area and many of the families cannot afford to purchase Scout uniforms, which unfortunately discourages some boys from even joining scouting.  Thus, I will happily accept donations of any Cub Scout or Boy Scout uniform (or uniform components) and pass them along to scouts, who will make good use of them.

If you have a uniform that you would like to donate or have any questions, please feel free to contact me (j.deitchman@hvcc.edu or ext. 7567).

Yours in scouting,

I have started my spring cleaning and rearranging,  and I figure since it takes me a long time to do, that we may actually see spring by the time I’m done!

This piece is about two years old and has no marks, scratches or water stains. It is all one piece, made of solid wood (not particle board), very sturdy/solid and has received excellent care. Measurements are 5’6″ L x 1’5″ W x 2′ 8.5″ H.

Originally purchased from Huck Finn’s Warehouse for $450; asking $225.
(Items displayed in and on the credenza are not included!)

For sale: Two (2) great Carolina Chocolate Drops tickets for 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 2 performance in the Swyer Theater at The Egg in Albany.

These two seats are just off the center aisle (right H 106 & H 108) and offered for $34.50 each/$69 for the pair, which is the original box office cost.

If you haven’t see the Drops, you should! If you have seen them before, you know how awesome they are, so don’t miss this chance to see them again! Here’s a teaser and the group’s website:



The opening act is Birds of Chicago:


I bought these seats months ago and hate to miss this show, but must now be out of town. Hopefully Rhiannon Giddens will deliver a couple of her talented dances for you when she is not fiddling, singing, playing kazoo or some other instrument. The entire band is multi talented and puts on a hell of a show.

Have you or a family member been to Europe with no intentions of returning? Do you have Euro dollars/coins you will no longer use?

Well, I am planning a trip to Italy in June. I would love to free you of those dollars/coins.  You can send them to me at Workforce Development, JRD 137.

Thank you!

Olympus D-520 Zoom 2.0 Megapixel Digital Camera

Okay, before you laugh, this is a great camera! It is in excellent condition, comes with the original box, cords, manuals, etc. Most importantly it takes great pictures! This does not have a lot of bells and whistles, which makes it great for a younger person to use (or an older person who doesn’t have the patience for all the “bling” on the new cameras… say me for instance!). This is also a great camera if you would rather not have your teenager take off on spring break with your much more expensive digital camera! Sadly, I am only parting with it because my future sister-in-law refuses to stand next to me when I use it and is threatening to send me to the Ukraine to live with her family if I don’t upgrade to the 21st century!
