Kathleen M. Jimino: A community supports a hero

For those interested in offering support to this cause, the opportunities are many. Trustco Bank is accepting donations on behalf of the home building project at most local branches, and various communities are sponsoring fundraisers including the Town of Nassau’s event at the Hoags Corners Fire House on May 4 from 5 until 8, and the Melvin Roads American Legion Post is hosting an event as well May 12 from 6 to 8 p.m. And let’s not forget the concert which will be held on April 28 at the Washington Avenue Armory in Albany that will be headlined by the Lt. Dan Band, led by Lt. Dan himself, Gary Sinise. Tickets are still available but may not be much longer and can be purchased on-line at ticketweb.com or by calling (518) 512-5203. 

In addition, during the summer and fall there will be a Harley Davidson Raffle and a Rolling Thunder “Bikers for America’s Bravest” fundraising ride respectively.
