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!!

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:

This years recipient of a portion of the proceeds from our Fish Fry was the OxBE4 Robotics Team.  We wish them the best of luck in St Louis!!!  Here is the letter we received from them:


Message to: Union Fire Company #2
We wish to convey our heartfelt thanks to the Union Fire Company No.2 for allowing the Ballston Spa High School FIRST Robotics Team 3044: 0xBE4 to participate in such a wonderful community event.
The Team had an incredible experience working side by side all the firefighters and their families as we helped prep for the Fish Fryday, waited tables, cleaned tables and tried to encourage the by-passers with our “Spirit Chants”…You say Fish, I say Fry…Fish Fry, Fish Fry!  Your Team made our Team feel welcomed and showed us the “gracious professionalism” that encompasses the core values of our FIRST Robotics program.
  We are humbled by your generosity allowing us to receive a portion of the proceeds to help our fundraising efforts to get us out to the World Championship’s April 23-28 in St. Louis. MO
We appreciates your commitment for the past 15 years, in which your Fish Fry Event has helped so many other worthy causes in our community. More importantly Team 3044 would like to thank you for being our “community heroes” because you and your volunteers are always on call to help make our community a safer place to live.
Your friends from…
TEAM 3044: OxBE4
