On the afternoon of Saturday, November 7, 2020, the Alumni Activities Club took full advantage of the unseasonably warm day that spread over the Capital Region of New York State. Despite the fact that we are at the beginning of November, the temperature reached nearly seventy degrees. We decided to go off to the Albany Pine Bush Preserve located on New Karner Road, which is an activity that was suggested by Andrew Maggio. We saw some very cool things such as a harmless garter snake that was also seizing the chance to enjoy one last “hurrah” of the Indian summer before the winter months set in for a while. Afterward, we ended up going to the Capital City Diner, which is a popular choice among the alumni, where the staff are very accommodating.

We are looking forward to resuming our past adventures to places such as New York City to see Broadway Shows once things become safer in our world. In the meantime, the Capital Region offers a plethora of options that we will continue to enjoy until the Old Normal begins to inch its way into our realities.

The College Experience thanks Andrew for allowing us to show his photograph and for his leadership in the Alumni Activities Club!
