Wreaths Across America at Gerald B.H. Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery will take place on Saturday, Dec. 17.

Following a brief ceremony at noon at the flag pole, volunteers will distribute wreaths.

Happy Holidays to all!
Carrie Farley
American Gold Star Mother

Every December, scores of tractor trailer trucks leave Maine and make their way across the U.S. to deliver wreaths purchased by citizens for placement on the graves of our honored veterans at Christmas time.

The Capital Area Patriot Guard Riders has been a part of the volunteer effort to place wreaths at the graves in the Saratoga National Cemetery. Eight years ago, seven wreaths were donated to Saratoga National Cemetery. The next year it grew to a little under 100. In 2009, it was a little over 250. In 2010, purchases of wreaths totaled over 450. An additional 200 wreaths were given to the cemetery by the Wreaths Across America organization. 2011 saw another increase to 1,100 and 2012 saw 1,700 wreaths. In 2014, with Patriot Guard Riders sponsorship, Saratoga National Cemetery received over 2,100 wreaths! In 2015, the wreath count grew to a little over 3,000!

Softec girls/youth figure skates, size 2, with Velcro fasteners for ease of putting on and comfort of use.

They’re generally in pretty good shape. Probably would look almost like new with a little Magic Eraser.

I offered these up last year for $20 and had no takers. This year they’re yours for $10!

We adopted Ariel about 2 years ago from the county shelter and she is now approximately 5 years old. She is a wonderful, tiny little tabby cat with a Persian like face. Ariel has never bitten or scratched anyone and has a wonderful temperament. We think she would do best with an established family. She is great with kids, dogs, and cats. She absolutely loves to be petted and groomed.

Please email Liz at for more information.

Ever wondered if an electric car would suit you, but didn’t want to commit to a three-year lease? Well, here’s your chance to lease an all-electric 2015 Nissan Leaf for a year!

Specifically, I’m hoping to find someone to take over the final year of my three-year lease. I recently inherited my mother’s car, and don’t need two cars to get around. The initial deposit already is paid, so you would just take over the monthly payment of $244.75 a month. At the end of November 2017, return the car to the dealer (Destination Nissan on Central Avenue) or if you like the car a lot, negotiate to buy it.

It’s a beautiful little car – a 2015 Nissan Leaf SV 4-door hatchback in Morning Sky blue. It has heated seats (both front and rear), heated steering wheel, backup camera and warning beeper, CD player, and Bluetooth capability. It comes with a charger connector which allows it to charge from any standard 3-pronged outlet; it also has the standard fast-charge plug and a plug for extra-fast charging when that technology becomes widely available. No more worrying about gas prices or oil changes!

In case you aren’t aware, the Hudson Valley Community College parking garage has a number of parking spots reserved for electric cars, complete with outlets for plugging them in. In addition, many of the local Hannafords and Price Choppers are installing charging stations. You can plug in and charge up while you shop for groceries!

If you’d like to check it out, or want more information, feel free to contact me at or 518-629-4868.

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 ( or 629-7567).

Yours in scouting,

Hello all!

I was re-organizing my home and decided that I no longer need the following items:

  2. Box of 13 DVDs, $10 takes all.

I can bring these to campus for pickup.
  3. Over-door Pullup Exercise Bar, $10. Has only been used a couple of times and is in great condition. Original price was $40. Fits over the top of most doors for home exercise use. I can bring this to campus for pickup.

This is handmade (not by me). I never stained it or anything, although it would lend itself to a clear coat or stain, etc. You could even stencil it and use it for whatever you wish. Good, sturdy cupboard for kitchen, entry way, living room — could have many uses. I think the first center opening could fit a small microwave (with a hole drilled for the cord). It is 71″ high, 24.3″ wide, 15.5″ deep. It is in very good condition, $75. Cash only/buyer must pick up. Contact

As seen on TV, a new Red Copper Square Pan Deluxe is for sale!

The set has never been used and is in the original box. The deluxe package includes a 10″ square pan, tempered glass lid, square fry basket, recipe booklet and steamer rack. The dimensions are 10″ across the top, 8″ bottom, 4″ deep and it has a 7.5″ long handle.

This is a multi use, oven safe and non-stick product, made with non-stick ceramic and super strong copper. It quickly fries food on the stove top. The pan is oven safe up to 500 degrees and is PFOA and PTFE free.

The deluxe package usually sells for $59.99; I am asking $40 for the deluxe set.

For further information, please contact me at (518) 505-6051.
