Thanks to all who came out to walk in the Schenectady CROP Walk on Sunday, May 1. The weather didn't dampen the spirits of the many committed walkers who raised money to address hunger issues here and abroad. If you have not yet turned in your donations, please bring them to the SICM Office Monday through Wednesday, between 8am and 3pm. Stay tuned for preliminary numbers of walkers and donations!

Spring 2016
Schenectady County Embraces Diversity:
Dialogue to Change!

The Dialogue to Change program is a community dialogue process to help people explore complex issues, make some decisions and begin to take action. Our focus is reached by a series of structured dialogues (referred to as ‘study circles’) that provide a safe and effective way for residents to discuss and address community issues. The Spring series will begin the week of April 3, 2016 and run for six weeks.

For additional information, please call Rev. Horace Sanders, Jr. 518-374-2683 ext 112 or FearNot@SICM.US.
