Recycle for a Good Cause

The Vegetable Project, which works with students in Albany City Schools, is collecting gallon-sized empty and cleaned plastic jugs to turn into miniature greenhouses for students throughout the city. Students will have a chance to learn about growing and nutrition. The Project’s goal is to collect at least 500 jugs and we want to do our part!

The Community Service Committee and Membership Committee will collect these jugs at  February Member Monday on Feb. 27 at the WCA. So save your water, milk and juice gallon jugs to support Albany kids!

Porch, Accessibility Ramp Near Completion

The long-awaited front porch project is nearly done. The accessibility ramp is complete with safety railings installed.

The next step will be to “Light Up the Ramp.” Thanks to 33 generous donors who contributed $11,865, the Club has designated funds to finish the work. The Porch Committee and architect are researching appropriate lighting fixtures.

Stay tuned for further updates about when we can “Light Up the Ramp."
