Congratulations Immaculate Conception!  On Saturday morning, November 3, hundreds of volunteers lovingly provided over 800 hours of service to our local community.  We participated in 28 different projects, both on site in the parish center and off-site at agencies in Scotia-Glenville, Schenectady, Albany, Ballston Spa, and Latham.  


It took a parish of generous, talented and caring people to make this day a success.  We hope we have not forgotten anyone in our expressions of appreciation below.


Thank you to the over 350 children, teens, young adults, parents, individuals, families and groups who answered Christ's call to serve His people.


Much appreciation to our consultants and assistants:  Tom Bigos, Karen Bond, Fran Bosher, Michelle DeLorenzo, Katie Dobies, Pam Durrant, Bill Gray, Denise Fraioli, Kathy Friscic, Father Jerry, Marge Kopcik, Edda Roemelt, MaryBeth Sankowski and Fran Rossi Szpylczyn.


Thank you to the the on-site team leaders, who were the creative hands-on organizers in the Parish Center:  Patti Brousseau, Carol Baumgartner, Judy Buckley, Doris Carlson, Lisa Casapullo, Christine DiDinato, Sylvia Lott, Maryann Haskell, Theresa Markowicz, Elizabeth Mendez, Mary Perry, Michelle Perry, Andrea Sheridan and Laura Weaver.


Thank you to the off-site team leaders, who were our community ambassadors as local agencies:  Michelle Boretti, Sue Breslin, Mark DiMartino, Sandy Frisone, Georgiann Holm, Ron Johnson, Kim Klementowski, Nancy Lethbridge, Joyce Maddalone, Debbie and Bob McGuire, Suzi Mongan, Tammie Pantalone, Peter Sheridan, Michael Schwedatschenko, Terry Stroble, Gavin Vuillaume, Paul Welsh and Tom Zaengle.


Jeanne and MaryAnn are enormously grateful to the members of the planning committee who devoted countless hours and effort to organize our day:  Julie Ashcroft, Joan Bunn, Roz DiDinato, Christine Goss, Jason Marion, Kris McKnoville, Marge Rizzo, Lynn Winterberger, Audie VanBuren and Maria Yorkshire.

There is a project for everyone - all ages, all abilities!  If physically able we urge you to select an off-site project, so that we can be visible in our community as the hands and feet of Jesus.  We encourage you to take a few minutes to look over all the projects.
