We are very lucky to have the 2016 Toys For Tots Convoy going right through our village! The Convoy starts at the Ballston Spa High School and will proceed through the village ending at SPAC. This is a convoy and not a parade so there will be no stopping of trucks, however it will be a sight to see as there will be close to if not more than 100 firetrucks and other emergency apparatus in this convoy. Join the facebook event for more information as it gets close, but mark you calendar and if you have small children you will not want to miss them seeing this event!
Ride leaves from UFC#2 Station at Noon, we will ride through the National Cemetery and then proceed north into Moreau. After a brief stop we will continue over to Corinth and back down Route 9N to the Museum. There will be a BBQ at the Museum when we arrive. Shirts will be available at the firehouse for purchase along with 50/50 tickets. All proceeds of this ride are to benefit the Korean and Vietnam War Exhibit that is slated to open in the fall of this year. Come out to support our Vets!!
Mark your calendars! Hope to see everyone there!
On Sunday members of the Ballston Spa Fire Department paid a surprise visit to a local 9 year old boy who is battling cancer. Nick Rychick and some friends from the neighborhood got to have some hands on fun and also got to check out the trucks!! Everyone had a great time and we were glad to make a new friend!! If you would like to make a donation to help Nick, please visit:
