The Stop signs are In!

The Buckingham Pond Conservancy advocated and the City of Albany responded by installing STOP signs at Colonial Ave. at the playground.
I am sure everyone is aware of how precarious it was to walk children (and adults) to the playground. Now, traffic will have to come to a complete stop in all directions, giving piece of mind to everyone who uses park facilities. I am sure that parents of little children are breathing a sigh of relief.
We especially want to thank Bill Trudeau, Traffic Coordinator for "making this happen".
Send your thanks to  
Thanks Bill,
Harry J. Ermides, President

Thank you!

We had over 35 volunteers who helped get the playground and pond perimeter ready for visitors this spring.
Thanks again!
