The Woman's Club of Albany is one of the oldest not-for-profit community organizations in the Capital Region. We donate to local organizations serving the needs of women and children, volunteer for a wide range of projects, and offer opportunities for new social, professional and community connections.
Ginger McGehee, program manager for the Alzheimer's Association of Northeastern New York, will give a presentation on Understanding Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia.
This program covers the difference between normal aging and dementia, the difference between Alzheimer’s and other forms of age-related dementia, warning signs and risk factors, as well as services available through the Alzheimer’s Association.
This event is free and open to the public. It will be held at the Woman’s Club of Albany, but in the event of snow, it will take place via Zoom.

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!
