Helping Schoharie

Continuing efforts to rebuild Schoharie following Hurricane Irene

Schodack Valley Fire Department held a fund-raising PIZZA Night to help raise money for the Schoharie Fire Department rebuild after the devastating effects of Hurricane Irene. Currently they run out of temporary quarters on the north end of town. Although they are still providing coverage for the town, they have no fire house in which to keep equipment.

"We lost our whole station," said Schoharie Fire Chief Marty Pierce.  The Schodack Valley volunteer Fire Department called offering a benefit so Pierce figured he'd get a few guys to come up and introduce themselves.

 "They gave a whole new meaning to brotherhood tonight," he said.

The Schoharie Fire Department provides fire protection and rescue services to a historic, rural village in upstate New York, approximately 40 miles southwest of Albany and 150 miles north of New York City.

Almost There!

"Regardless of your age. Regardless of any family history you may have. I want everyone to take their breast care seriously. Early detection is key. I want every woman to have the opportunity to get those monograms. For all of these reasons I am walking in this 3 day event. I will walk to pay it back for all of those who raised money before me for research that has made my treatment that much more successful. I am raising money to pay it forward for research to finally put an end breast cancer."

I love this woman.
