Your weekend update...

I have mentioned it a few times already on this blog, but there are quite a few events going on this weekend, and I'm going to take a moment to remind everyone once more.

On Saturday afternoon, Troy High will be playing its homecoming game. Does it really matter who we play? It would be great to see a huge crowd Saturday afternoon rooting for the Flying Horses.

Just be sure not to lose your voice while screaming as there will be plenty of excitement Sunday. Up first is the 2nd annual East V. West Tug Of War to benefit volunteer fire departments around the Capital Region. The Tug Of War will take place on the Green Island Bridge involving a number of firefighters from across the area. Sponsored by PYX 106, this unique undertaking is meant to help collect funds for all of the volunteers participating.

As the tug of war is happening, one of my favorite events of the year will be taking place- the 3rd Annual Empty Bowls Project. For all of the information on that, just scroll down to a few days ago, where it was discussed extensively.

And while we are all looking forward to a three day weekend thanks to Columbus Day on Monday, next week is full of everything from ribbon cuttings to exciting endorsement announcements. It should be fun. Check back this weekend for an update on the Capital improvements that have made this weekend.

Enjoy the nice weather while it lasts!
