World War I in Troy

In 2014, Janice Bagarose of Locust Avenue in Troy found a wonderful collection of photographs from the World War I era in her new home. Thankfully for historians everywhere, she donated them to the RCHS. The photos were collected by Mary T. Ryan, who was the City Historian of Troy in 1922 and 1923. They were taken by Bert Boice, who was one of the most important local photographers for decades. The images show many events which took place in the city during the war- from the send-off parade for the local regiment in August 1917 to the memorial service for the fallen in September 1919, plus local activities of the Red Cross and other service organizations during the war. The collection not only shows us the activities in the city during the war, but also shows us the people and buildings of the city at the time, and gives us insight into clothing, transportation, streetscapes, shopping, etc.

In 1967, seven Chicago musicians set out to create a new sound: a rock band with horns. Their dream turned into 20 Top-10 singles and 12 Top-10 albums. Among their hits many hits are "If You Leave Me Now," "Hard To Say I'm Sorry" and "Here In My Heart." Nearly five decades later, in 2016, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

JULY 16 is National Ice Cream Day 
National Ice Cream Day is dedicated to appreciating ice cream.

Ice cream was first advertised in New York. In 1984, Senator Walter Dee Huddleston of Kentucky initiated a joint resolution to declare July as the National Ice Cream Month. This holiday is now celebrated on the third Sunday of July.


On National Flag Day, Americans show respect for the U.S. Flag and what it represents. Representing independence and unity, the Stars and Stripes have become a powerful symbol of Americanism and is flown proudly. On June 14 we honor Old Glory on National Flag Day. This day commemorates the adoption of the United States flag on June 14, 1777.

ALBANY NY – The 1st Friday of every month marks a funky and fun night of the arts in Albany, starting at 5pm. The event is fittingly named... 1st Friday. Residents and visitors flock to downtown Albany for this highly anticipated art event, administered by the Upstate Artists Guild.

FREE REIKI...Free Reiki on the 1st Friday of every month from 6:00 – 6:45 pm at Venture Inward, 568 Columbia Turnpike, #16 VanDenHouten Square (back entrance), East Greenbush. Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress; and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Energy healers and Reiki practitioners work together to help balance and regenerate calling upon angels to assist in energy work to relieve stress and bring renewed wellness to body/mind/spirit. FREE! Email: venturein@yahoo.com; 518-477-6566 www.Venture-InwardCenter.com
