Bits & Pieces of Local News

Here’s some of what’s going on around the Capital District:

First: a Clifton Park girl’s charity, Hannah’s Hope Fund, is currently in 2nd place for winning $25K from Pepsi.  The money would go toward treatment for a fatal disorder called Giant Axonal Neuropathy.   You can support Hannah’s Hope Fund by voting here. Local bloggers Friday Puppy and All Around Albany have been spreading the word.  But act now:  tomorrow is the last day to vote.

Some of you are fans of my lovely friend Pam, who’s been popular for (among other things) her Thursday story times at the Niskayuna Barnes & Noble.  Her schedule has changed, and her story hour has changed to 9:30 am on Fridays.

There’s another new Chipotle, this one in Stuyvesant Plaza.  Catching up on Google Reader was comical:  one person said that they were giving away free food again, someone else said that they weren’t, and someone else said that it was friends-and-family only, but that she was admitted when her disappointed son burst into tears.

All Over Albany pointed out a TU Dog-Owned Life Blog post with a list of Capital Region dog parks.  Hey, if you’ve got a kid who loves dogs, any of these might be a fun outing.

The TU’s Youth Arts Blog posted about the Malta Ballet Company’s upcoming auditions for The Nutcracker.  They’re on Sept. 11th.  Seemed like, if you wanted to try to audition, you might want to have more lead-time than you’d normally get from my weekend post.

At All Over Albany, someone was asking about good local fishing spots.  Not my cup of tea, but there’s plenty of good information.
