Attendance at Canal Days appreciated

Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site would like to offer our sincere appreciation to all those who attended our 31st Annual Canal Days recently. The community support we receive is a testament to the kind, considerate residents of the Mohawk Valley and greater Capital Region. The site would like to thank the performers Cosby Gibson and Tom Staudle for their set and music workshop; also, the Nellies, Magician Jim Snack, Pip Squeaks the Clown, and returning to the Schoharie Crossing Canal Day stage, Sara Milonovich.

We would also like to take this opportunity to express our thanks to the following: the Erie Canal National Heritage Corridor, the Natural Heritage Trust, the state Canal Corp., Alpin Haus, Parillo’s Armory Grill, Girard’s, and the Friends of Schoharie Crossing for their support and sponsorship of this year’s event.

The site was proud to give away prizes donated by the following: Fonda Speedway, High Rollers, Dolci and Shorty’s.

Community organizations, such as ECOS, the Girl Scouts, Schenectady Winter Sports Club, Forever Home Greyhound Adoption, Schenectady Disc Golf, Montgomery County SPCA, and many others, were great to have alongside Fritzann Farms, Run By Dogs and the Utica ZooMobile. And last, but certainly not least, a giant thank you to Tri-County Old Time Power for your undeniable dedication to the preservation of the past and support of our site.

To the maintenance and grounds crew, as well as the visitor center staff and volunteers, you did a wonderful job that allowed attendees to explore, learn and, most of all, enjoy the event.

If we neglected to mention you, it was not intentional and we apologize. There have been so many wonderful people and organizations that have contributed to making Canal Days at Schoharie Crossing a wonderful, vibrant and exciting place to be, it seems overwhelming.

Once again, thank you for your support of Schoharie Crossing. For more information, call 829-7516.
